Are you saying you have no extracurricular activities? You know you're on a message board with men's clothing enthusiasts right...

Further, the notion of "attracting students" is probably a net harm. I may sound like an elitist dickhead when I say this, but the sort of student who is attracted to a school by its football program is probably not the kind of student I want at my university. My university (should be obvous from my location) is probably the second-best public university in the country academically (after Berkeley), but is still better known for its football team. Nevermind that our...

That's about $40 million that gets put back into the academics or capital investment yearly. Instead of adjectives, let's use numbers "Of the 117 Division I-A programs, 40% reported an operating profit in 2001. But without state and school subsidies, only 6% made...

Boat shoes wih socks don't look good to me. I sprinkle a little Goldbond powder in the shoes after every few wearings. They make a foot powder, but I just use the same stuff I put on my balls.
Ok, so we seem to mostly agree that just not calling is a lousy thing to do. Doing this in-person isn't necessary - we aren't that serious. It'll be a call or a text.
Ok, so three dates with a girl, the last two ended with some lovemakin' I don't want to see her any more. No real reason.... just not excited about going any further. Would I be a huge dick if I just stop calling her? Do i need to call and say I'm no longer interested in seeing her? How about a text?
why is is all or nothing with you "I don't drink" people. If you're not an alcoholic, then why don't you try drinking occasionally? I don't think having a few drinks once per month (or whatever) is all-of-a-sudden going to make your soccer game shitty again. Be an adult. The world isn't black-and-white. Exercise judgement.
