Domestic-Disaster turned 3 today!
there are guys in my dorm who decided to play cards in the elevator
see what intrigues me about college isn’t the intellectual pursuit or the bonding or whatever, its the fact that people have the freedom to do random shit like this
Okay, everybody, I have a story about random shit in college. When I was in college, there was a particular class I took where, no matter what time you walked into class, if you made it into the room before the professor, you wouldn’t be counted late. I mean, that’s a pretty cool policy, given how some professors are really obnoxious about attendance.
Well, one time, a fellow student of mine was running late to class. As she reached the edge of the building, she saw her professor making it to the front steps (super long rectangular building here). He looks up from walking and he sees her. He then points to his watch, gives her a well-meaning “Look who’s late” face, and walks on inside.
What he didn’t know, though, was that this particular student was like freakishly good at bouldering and related climbing skills, so she was just like “Fuck it” and SCALED THE BUILDING!
She tapped on the window of the 4th floor classroom (the floors had like 20ft ceilings, so, she was quite a ways up there), nearly making one student piss himself. They opened the window, she rolled through, onto the floor, and slid into her seat about five seconds before the professor opened the door to the classroom.
He did a double take, started to say “How the hell d—” when a security guard ran in, red-faced and panting, pointed at her and bellowed “STOP DOING THAT!”
(i.e. how to
manipulateappeal to each type)
xNTP - play their curiosity
xNTJ - do something inefficiently (they will take over and do everything instead of you)
xSTP - a well-placed dare
xSFP - play prince charming/damsel in distress
xSTJ - play the naive student (give them something to preach you about)
xSFJ - a guilt trip
xNFJ - a chance to reform you (show them your traumatic childhood issues)
xNFP - make them feel you’re the only one who understands their uniqueness
The end of “The Circus” surely one of his most poignant, unlike the ambiguous ending of “City Lights” you know in this film he will not get the girl.
In the documentary Chaplin “His Life & Art” (2003), Geraldine Chaplin tells a story about her father shooting this sequence.
After he filmed the scene, decided to reshoot it the next day, only to discover the wagons had been stolen by a group of College Freshman, determined to use them for a school bon fire, luckily the wagons were retrieved in time and Charlie Chaplin did not press charges.

In case you’re wondering how accurate this is, I compared them to a local restaurants sheet they have in their kitchen and everything is dead on.

Michael Schulman remembers Joan Rivers:
“Everyone who called her the Queen of Mean was missing the point: life is what’s mean, and she was here to let us know how funny that is.”
