Eagle Rants April 8, 2012

•when are we going to find out what's going into the empty mcdonalds???? [Editor's note: We're wondering the same thing.]

•This girl on Ando6 is pretty cute and chill, except that she she stole my nerf gun. I'm gonna get that back asap...

•Money is just as important as service to your country, your delusional if you deny that fact. Those paychecks military personnel receive are the tax dollars that people like doctors pay for. They are both important in their own right, but at the end of the day, doctors save lives no matter what, and soldiers take them with the "hope" that their protecting others. Don't compare the two, it's a moot point.

•You can afford to stay at AU yet you feel like your missing something because your not in the military. You obviously don't value your education. Please drop out and give your tuition money to someone who wants to be here.

•@The person giving me advice about earning my bf's trust back- Thank you so much! He says he still loves me and can see me in his future. I'll be on my best behavior:)

•There will be time, there will be time To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet; There will be time to murder and create, And time for all the works and days of hands That lift and drop a question on your plate; Time for you and time for me, And time yet for a hundred indecisions, And for a hundred visions and revisions, Before the taking of a toast and tea.

•Only conservative women would complain about groups preaching feminism as if it's a bad thing. This is why people judge you guys.

•@Bullying Club - We definitely do! How can we find each other?

•I want all the boyyssss

•@Military ranters: after you count the non-cash benefits servicemembers get, they're almost always better-compensated than their private-sector counterparts. Especially if they make it to retirement. Veterans who left earlier - they're the ones getting screwed.

•Hey ranter with friends in the military. I know who you are, and you can probably guess who this is. I haven't said anything because I wanted to respect the fact that you chose to rant about it, but you should know that you're making more sacrifices for the good of people around you than 95% of other people at this university. We all have our own callings, and I have respect for yours. And no, you don’t suck. If you want to talk about it, my phone is never off, and my door is never closed.

•Nick Rangos has nothing on ridiculously photogenic guy.

•If you left your silver house key in an empty pack of Marlboro lights on the benches in between Kogod and Battelle on Thursday, it has been turned in to the Public Safety lost and found. Hope this helps whoever lost it!

•My dad just asked for FWB advise. I'm a girl.

•Is anyone else concerned that the editor was up at 7:17 a.m. on a Saturday to post yesterday's rants? [Editor's note: This editor has a very, very large paper to write this weekend. Hence, the early wake-up.]

•Hello to the cute guy at the visual media center in the library. :)

•@female conservatives-- why do you not want to be considered feminists? the only people I know who have (legitimate) issues with the feminist movement are People of Color (POCs) and trans* people who have traditionally been excluded from feminist thought. what's your issue with feminism?

•Wal-Mart is coming to DC?! Yessssss! Sure, I feel bad for the little stores. I love them and they're great for window shopping but I'm sorry, I can't afford anything there. Finally reasonable prices are coming to DC.

•@moving trees: Yes lol. I have an instragram photo of some big truck thing carrying trees from out of near Nebraska Hall.

•sadly RHA can't give out condoms due to the chance they might be expired or there might be a hole. and then the preggo girl could blame RHA for her baby/abortion expenses. And AU doesn't want to deal with liability issues like that. And yeah, you can stock up during the day, but to really create a campus promoting safe sex, we should have them in the dorms. Not everyone plans when they want to have sex.

•Cool, I'm encouraged by the support for a conservative women's group. I'll look into making it happen =)

•@I don't understand this comment: Well, there's a difference between caring about women's rights and being a feminist...in practice even if not in definition....

•Tenley Campus first floor girls bathroom has really weak water pressure.

•Hello, strangers!

•I have concluded through careful, empirical analysis and much thought that somebody is looking out for me, keeping track of what I think about things, forgiving me when I do less than I ought, giving me strength to shoot for more than I think I'm capable of. I believe they know everything that I do and think and they still love me and I've concluded after careful consideration that this person keeping score... is me.

•"Finally, some conservative women on this campus. Don't listen to those hippies and be proud to be in the kitchen and makes us MEN sandwiches. Now if all those feminazi/lesbos would get a clue..." ^Aaaaaaand this is why female conservatives feel ashamed of being conservative. Women conservatives are NOT all antifeminist 1950's housewives. However being "feminist" these days has such a stigma that I feel uncomfortable being one. Women's rights should not mean free condoms at every event...It's about more than sexuality, but on college campuses that is largely forgotten. Also, not all "lesbos" identify with feminism either. Grow up.

Rant here!
