Current Events Update for Cafeteria Chatter 8/21
You may have noticed that we’ve been updating a lot more at Surviving College lately! It’s because we want you to keep coming back. We feel lonely over here when people are only stopping by once a day . So look forward to your daily dose of current events — that way, you can sound knowledgeable when you meet up with your friends for dinner!
Evil Geniuses: Employees at the most corrupt Apple Store in America confess unethical activities they’ve committed, such as:
- Trading computers for plastic surgery
- Stealing bonuses
- Stealing (and destroying) unlimited iPhones
- Trading computers for cheap booze
The “Legitimate Rape” Debacle: Todd Akin thinks America is mad at him because he used the word “legitimate” instead of “forcible” in explaining why women shouldn’t ever get pregnant if it really was rape.

Politicians are crazyyyy.
Electric City: Did you know that Tom Hanks made a cartoon web series? Neither did I.

‘Water’ You Drinking?: Excuse the pun (I blame Huffington Post), but really, did you know your body uses 2 to 3 quarts of water a day to maintain basic functions?

I’m looking at you, friends who don’t eat or drink anything until like 8pm. Stop that.
