Do You Hate It When Your Profs are Dumb? A Review.

Do you hate it when your profs are dumb? Ya, me too. Sometimes (always) I wonder where the heck my tuition goes. Last Saturday, i got my answer: it goes to the engsoc banquet! So many steaks and so much wine and so many little tasty appetizers and so many people and so many cameras and so many rented buses and so many rented venues. Nah I’m joking there was only one venue.

Queen's Arc Tim Hortons' Mistreatment Of Seagulls Has To Stop

On my way to Golden Words this Sunday afternoon I witnessed something so unimaginable that I had to write about it - a tragedy was occurring on the pathway between Douglas Library and Ontario Hall. I initially thought it was just two seagulls on the sidewalk trying to stay nourished - one of them was picking at a whole-wheat bun. But then I saw what the other seagull was attempting to digest: An entire Tim Hortons™ Crispy Chicken® Patty. A bird eating another fellow bird is essentially a perfect example of zoological cannibalism - and it needs to stop.

I Guess the Patriarchy Won, Again

As a white woman I have a pretty great position, because not only do I have all of the privileges of being white, but I am also allowed to complain about oppression, and let me tell you-it’s fulfilling as fuck.

The thing is, you may have noticed the Golden Words managerial staff is moving from a 50/50 gender ratio to entirely male staff. As your weekly feminist propaganda source I sure have some thoughts on this.

Don’t Say Goodbye; The French Say Omlette Du Fromage

That’s right kids, I know that you’re secretly celebrating, but can you at least pretend to be a little sad? No, this isn’t when granny died and left you some cold hard $$$. Instead of buying yourself a fancy watch and selling his old clocks on Kijiji, you’re getting new GW editors. That’s right, your boy is stepping aside, old and obsolete, for fresh blood: Sam Goldstein and Brendan Robson. This very well may be on the of the last times you see my mug in this newspaper.

Why AM I here?

Why are we here? It’s one of the oldest questions that mankind has ever asked itself. Is there some greater purpose to life? Is there existence beyond death? Is there a benevolent god who watches over us, or is life just a meaningless accident? I don’t have the answer to any of these questions, but I do have the answer to this one. Why am I here?

Why we need 364 international men’s days every year

Listen up, ladies. We need to have a long talk about equality of the sexes. One day a year, on March 8th, we celebrate International Women’s Day. It is a hallowed day, with a long history of empowerment. It started 100 years ago, at the beginning of the Russian revolution in 1917. But, it is also a problematic event. From the half of a Wikipedia article I read, it seems that I am not the only critic of the day. You see, many times in life I find myself asking the same crucial question: “Yes, but what about men?” And I mean it – yes, women are important, but what about men?

Why You Should Invest in Zinc

OK so listen here buckos- I’ve taken 2 economics courses, a single commerce course on business, and three years of whatever mining engineering decided I needed to take to get a degree in mining engineering- so I friggin’ know about markets and metals and money and all that bullshit. So you can trust this bad gal when she says: “Zinc is top shit and you should financially invest while it is still rising”.

If Queen’s Faculties Were Meal Plan Foods

Everyone who’s taken advantage of the Queen’s meal plan personally identifies with a food item offered on the menu. For example, I personally identify as Bacon Spinach Alfredo Pizza. Everyone has an item for every state: Sober, drunk, high, or all of the above. But if faculties were meal plan foods, what would they be?
