I guess most women eventually learn that men aren't that interested in what they're saying. I'm glad she learned this at MIT.

This article was pretty funny... but the NetHack reference makes me wanna call shenannigans. She's either a lot older or a lot more plagiaristic than she lets on.

Turn this around, use it the other way..

"Don't you wish that guys would carry around a Tampon with their Leatherman tool?"

Don't tell me that you wouldn't get a laugh out of that.

In my spare time, I sculpt asymmetrical ass cheeks. Youd be a perfect model for me. This one actually worked equally well, but then again I am pretty hot.

Modest too.

It was funny, but I don't think it was anything plagiaristic, Neospartan. She goes to MIT. She's a geek by definition.
 
2005-11-22 08:20:48 AM  
Hm. I'm gonna have to go with "poorly written articles" for 200, Alex. There's no arc here, nothing. She starts by saying men aren't all that hard to figure out, then proceeds to document how her absurd lines fail at a frat party, then talks about cross-dressing and finishes with some joke about monkey balls. I don't get it, other than she's an author trying to be absurd for absurdity's sake, which is, well, absurd. Hunter Thompson she is not.

Man, I'm just picturing her using a diva cup during a good pegging to pee in someone's butt...

Arc, shmarc. It was just a silly, funny piece.
I mean, c'mon:
My ovaries are about ready to burst can you relieve the pressure?
Any man who has had a severe case of blue balls can surely empathise with this?

No Catchy Nickname: Arc, shmarc. It was just a silly, funny piece.

Even silly, funny pieces can be well-written and at least leave you with a sense of...well...something. I don't even know what the point of this was.
 
2005-11-22 08:29:09 AM  
Wait...wait...so a confident woman goes to a drunken frat party, says some incredibly odd stuff, and finds that many of the off-beat lines still work? I'm mystified about this!
</not mystified>

Neospartan: but the NetHack reference makes me wanna call shenannigans.


Exactly what I was thinking. Just having knowledge of NetHack makes her A: Not hot, 2: A geek.

You'll know for sure soon enough. It's only a matter of time before someone finds her myspace page, online poetry, and everything else she's ever done and posts a link. Be patient.

The point of it was twofold:
One: we all realise how clever and funny the writer is
Two: we all fap over the mental image of a hot, smart MIT chick

I was left with a sense of exhausted satisfaction, as I am sure you were.

Umm, right?

surprisingly for a geek, her homepage wasn't the first hit on google, so I got bored...

I don't even know what the point of this was.

Well, for most college newpaper "columns" i've read, it was at least in the middle 50% as far as legibility goes...

Nah, not necessarily.

I'm only 27, and I love the hell out of some Nethack.

Nothing compares to kicking some @ ass :)

robhead: Just having knowledge of NetHack makes her A: Not hot

"Hot" is a relative term at MIT.

/went to Ga. Tech
//of the 5 women on campus, the one that was 'hot' was maybe a 5 in the real world
 
2005-11-22 09:04:36 AM  
It's time that "Cosmo," women, and gay men realize that guys aren't really that hard to figure out. I see men as those old computers: all big and clunky and capable only of the most binary thoughts.

It's time that "Maxim," men, and lesbians realize that women aren't really that hard to figure out. I see women as those old Chatty Cathy dolls: a plastic facade capable only of talking just to hear themselves talk.


Huh. This is fun!
 
2005-11-22 09:05:32 AM  
wtf is a 'leatherman'?
 
2005-11-22 09:06:44 AM  
Do women really need to use pickup lines? Just going up to some guy and saying 'let's go screw' should work just fine.

It's time that "Teen People," teenagers, and tweens realize that adults aren't really that hard to figure out. I see adults as old Lego sets: faded and cracked in places but still worth a few laughs now and then.
 
2005-11-22 09:09:39 AM  
I'm so relieved I didn't know what that was.

It's a small knife that fits on key chains. More manly than a Swiss army knife. Unless it comes with a tampon attachment.

The Leatherman.

We called them "Mantools" when I was in the army. Inside joke I guess.

To say the least: yes.

Doggie McNugget: Do women really need to use pickup lines?

I think that may have been, at least in part, her point. It was kind of a difficult article to follow, though, both logically and in story telling abilities.
 
2005-11-22 09:14:08 AM  
Cram your toolkit into a single utility, similar to a Swiss Army Knife, only with a thingy for getting the stones out of horse's hooves.
 
2005-11-22 09:14:54 AM  
Hi, Im Sarah. Can I pee in your butt.

Oddly enough, this would work on me (drunk or not).
 
2005-11-22 09:15:06 AM  
ok, you guys suck
 
2005-11-22 09:18:14 AM  
That was a funny article. Honestly, if a woman tried any of those pick-up lines on me, I'd be inclined to talk to her simply because it's obvious she has a sense of humor.

I'd worry about that whole "she might actually be psycho" issue later.
 
2005-11-22 09:18:46 AM  
Only at MIT do you need to do research to prove that breasts work.

No wonder yank engineering has gone to hell.
 
2005-11-22 09:21:19 AM  
"Youd be wrong, wrong like that woman who was arrested recently for super-gluing her boyfriends penis to his chest"

holy shiat!

back in OT land somewhere:
Women don't need pickup lines. but it was an interesting experiment. I loved the one about breaking the other foot. that was great.
 
2005-11-22 09:23:28 AM  
I read that as 'Letterman with a tampon attached' and didn't think it was strange.
 
2005-11-22 09:24:05 AM  
Alright, somebody help me out.

How does a "hot" (?) girl go to a frat party, use a whole variety of pickup lines ranging from (a) hilarious and bound to work to (z) oddly strange and worrying but still bound to work

......

and not get laid...?

Did she get to a certain point and then say "Actually, sorry, I'm just doing research for an article on pickup lines." and then walk away.....?

'Cause that would get old real fast.


/ cue the "Can't a girl just talk to a guy without actually putting out!?!" people.
// ordinarily yes, but not if peeing in my butt is on offer, 'cause that's an instant trip to the coat room.
 
2005-11-22 09:24:11 AM  
I learned a lot from this article. Like MIT apparently has a gender quota.

GIS results turned up another atricle in the neighborhood written by Sarah Buckley.
 
2005-11-22 09:26:49 AM  
Dont you sometimes wish there was a Leatherman with a tampon attachment?

What? Ok, while I might be a "big clunky computer"...I know that if you mention the word 'tampon' in a pick-up line (probably while drinking some kool-aid using a tampon ala the movie 'Kids')....it's not a turn on.

/'hey, i have a smelly discharge...wanna hook up'
//I need some kool-aid now...

The story of how she broke her foot

she's also an EMT, but I can't find a MySpace account or anything like that...

Man, that was funny, Vin Diesel
 
2005-11-22 09:28:15 AM  
Try this search on Google: "Sarah Buckley" MIT. The first result is http://ems.mit.edu/officers.php

It shows that Sarah Buckley is the Director of Professional Development at MIT Emergency Medical Services. Notice that the e-mail address (sabucklemit.edu) is identical to the writer of the article.


Yeah, I can even tell you her room #, but I couldn't find a photo (which is what we really care about)

Or even... a girl (OMG! A girl!) goes to a party at MIT (Did you see a girl? I think I did!) and no matter what she says, guys talk to her. Stunning.
