Students Plan “Yawn In” on Facebook
Anyone who's around Statler Hall (I know I'll be) is encouraged to sit in on the lecture and check it out - who knows how it'll turn out. All I know is that either way, these freshmen really have some balls. Right about now I'm sitting here wishing that I had spent less time failing Talbert's quizzes and spending more time yawning in his class so that I could say I was the one that was lucky enough to make him flip a shit. That ship has obviously sailed.
Happy yawning, kiddos!
Billy Joel: 1. Wore a Cornell Sweatshirt on stage 2. Played a duet with President Skorton – who knows how to play the jazz flute like Ron Burgundy 3. Said Uptown Girl was a joke 4. Did not want to go to formal with anyone 5. Billy Joel > formals Thank you to everyone... MORE »
Tonight is the Big Red Hot Hockey game that takes place every other year against BU at MSG. In the next few hours your news feeds are going to start blowing up about about the game. Examples of statuses you will see: 1. “At MSG go Big Red” 2. “Let’s go Cornell!” 3. “I’m in... MORE »
We all remember Clippit, don’t we? Well, if you don’t maybe this will job your memory….Clippit was our good friend from Microsoft word who used to pop up at the most convenient times to give us helpful hints about what we were doing. Mark Zuckerberg remembers Clippit. He is now trying to bring a version... MORE »
One more post about the yawning scandal and I’m DONE, promise. This was too funny to pass up, though – check out this homemade Cornellian video in response to the infamous freakout. I am now going to lock myself in the library for the next 48 hours now. Bye. MORE »
Let’s say hypothetically speaking your name starts with an A. You are used to getting butt dialed at this point in your life seeing as I’m sure you’ve had a cell phone since middle school. But, once you go abroad getting butt dialed has a whole new meaning. And mostly it has to do with... MORE »
Thanks to the recent surge of nice weather here in Ithaca, there has been a surge of “sports” that have been taking place across our hallowed slopes. Frisbees, footballs, and even kites have been seen flying through the air due to the April weather, but the most interesting sport that has been displayed is this... MORE »
So almost 6 months ago exactly I had this great idea of posting music every Monday. It worked really well that first Monday (so not really at all), but then I got sidetracked by, well, drinking 4 days a week and somewhat succeeding in school. So forgive me for being absent (read: honestly i’ve been... MORE »
Outraged customers and a tarnished brand are the result of a worldwide Blackberry Blackout, which left Blackberry users without email, BBM, or sanity. The problems curiously occurred at the same time as Apple’s release of the iPhone 4S. After an investigation by Research In Motion, the developer of blackberry phones, it appears... MORE »
Recently, Cornell committed to spending 1.56 million dollars to make the gorges safer. To put that in perspective, that’s enough money to cover almost forty years of Cornell tuition – reduce our campus’ carbon footprint by 30% – or, at the very least, it’s enough to get someone better than Taio Cruz for Slope Day....

Look, don’t let the title of this article fool you. I love being a girl. There’s nothing more satisfying than being able to have casual sex every weekend simply by wearing a low cut top with something shiny and distracting on it and mentioning that I have an N64 to go along with my piece... MORE »
This poor lil’ guy was found sitting in the middle of College Ave this past Sunday as the rain poured down and everyone in Ithaca resumed hating their lives and questioning why they ever came here in the first place. As told by an eyewitness who asked if the emo sitter was alright, “he said... MORE »
I’m not one to post serious videos, but I like to think of this website as a sort of distraction from all the craziness going on in your life. Especially with finals week wreaking havoc on us and everyone around us, it’s important to remember the reason we’re all here – this video should remind... MORE »
Looks like Cornell’s got itself its own sexy sax man…IT’S ABOUT TIME. MORE »
Today marked the end of my favorite time of the year (no, not steak and a blowjob day): Cornell Days. And as I found myself pulling overenthusiastic completely bullshit lies out of my ass to please the shining new faces of the Class of 2015 and their parents, I thought, “fuck, I’m old.” I also...

I’m shocked at the amount of effort Cornell politicians have been putting into their campaigns lately, especially since no one know what the fuck Student Assembly does in the first place. Now that Natalie Raps has long been victorious, here comes Alex Bores – another white dude in a suit and tie – running for... MORE »
I’m not exactly sure how this escaped my eye, but this picture of an Ithaca Craigslist ad posted before St. Paddy’s day speaks for itself. Remind me again why I was at Dunbar’s at 8 am when I could have been engaging in a “wee bit of shenanigans” with these guys? I clearly need to... MORE »
I’m on my video A-game lately and it’s all thanks to my fellow Cornellians constantly churning out hilarious vids for the rest of us to watch instead of doing more important things like GTLing. I stumbled up on this Bo Burnham-esque video from Jon Zucker ’14 and I couldn’t resist, he’s just so damn adorable.... MORE »
My favorite part about the upcoming SA elections is watching all the candidates throw down to determine who will be the ultimate campus leader at the ‘Nell. My girl Natalie Raps is running for SA Prez, and her campaign video is something you NEED to check out. I mean I haven’t seen a white girl... MORE »
Sean Doyle ’15 has got a little somethin somethin he wants to show you (and all his future Ivy League groupies). This may or may not be his admissions video (which leads us to believe that there must be a lot of lonely middle aged married women over at Day Hall spending late nights perusing... MORE »

Ah yes, it’s that time again – one year comes to a close and makes way for an even better one to follow. At midnight, we’ll ring in the new year in style no matter where we are: some of us will be vomiting on the sidewalk outside the bar, some of us will be... MORE »
Another semester finally over…time sure flies when you’re living the life of a pompous Ivy League douchebag! To give you a little recap of what happened, apost and I have joined forces to bring you the ultimate Cornell Basement (formerly known as BigRedMyCampus) semester in review. If we forgot something, well, let’s be honest –... MORE »
We hear this cutie’s looking for groupies, so if you’re interested… 😉 MORE »
We’ve just received word that Cornell freshman Jimmy Applebaum has been stranded on Cornell’s campus since missing his bus home to Great Neck, Long Island last Tuesday. Jimmy, who is a geology major, apparently slept through his alarm on Tuesday morning after a rigorous table tennis tournament that occurred in the Mews 2nd floor... MORE »
