A request and a public service announcement from Katie Deane ’14:
Seeking donations of old lipsticks for art-making! (Will accept donations of all old makeups.) a quick google search reveals you are in danger of assault by bacteria and other bad things if you are using a lipstick you opened longer than a year ago– meaning the fuchsia lipstick from your 2011 Nicki Minaj Halloween costume is probably seeking retirement. Email me and I will come pick up your lipsticks in exchange for candy! Or Seaweed Snax… Or Orangina… Up for negotiation. Also please ask your mothers/sisters/aunts at Thanksgiving– goldmines for tubes of dried-out mauve paste teaming with bacteria.
Want mad fresh veggies?

Are you about to graduate with a bullshit degree and no job? Are you horrified by how expensive rent is these days? Do you just want to leave it all behind? Have you considered life on Mars?
Seriously, though. Wanna go to Mars?
Mars One is a not-for-profit organization run by Dutch people (of all people) dedicated to colonizing Mars in 2023. They apparently will be able to do this only using technology which currently exists, because unlike other plans to send people to Mars, this does not include a return flight.
You may ask, what kind of maniac would volunteer for such a thing? The answer is this kind of maniac. Because, of course, all the application videos are available online for your viewing, rating, and commenting pleasure. In case you were in any doubt, the world is full of strange, strange people.
Virgil Taylor ’15 sends word from the land of free-form:

This afternoon, students received an email from Dean of Students Rick Culliton, with the mysterious, somewhat ominous subject line “Weekend events.”
Authority figures seem to have a block on admitting they know the kids they’re in charge of take drugs for fun. Maybe they think it’s their fault or something. Dean Culliton decides to characterize the annual smoke storm on Foss as a protest, which I guess is sort of flattering, but decides he can’t bring himself to mention the name of Zonker Harris without protective quotation marks.
He then reminds us that drugs are still against the rules, and we’ll be in big trouble if we take them, so maybe we should think about that. He refrains from reminding us to eat fruits and vegetables and make sure we get enough sleep, but my mom already called me today and she has that part covered:
