With my mechanical engineering technology classes combined this semester...

Please. This Milhouse would be lucky if he could nail anyone, even a fat chick.
2003-04-29 02:46:02 PM  
Ummm... welcome to Indiana?

you friggin' tool.
2003-04-29 02:47:32 PM  
That's what porn is for, stupid. Just concentrate on your schooling, then when you are rich, women will find you.

"Sure I'm insensitive, but you're fat."

I'm surprised I didn't date this asshat when I was single.

Ya know honestly and I think the other farkettes can back me up on this. These guys who act like this and think they are just God's give to women.
Suck in bed. They suck so bad it isn't funny. They act all big and tough and ready to go, but they are the first to lose it in under 5 minutes. Now a kind guy caring guy
he'll be there to the end.

i doubt everyone is "fat," but Purdue's females just fail to live up to his ideal standard of Calista Flockhart on a starvation diet...after a purge.

it is an unrealistic standard. nothing wrong with a little excess weight, ladies (in my dirty-old-man eyes).
2003-04-29 03:00:50 PM  
I'm curious on what this fellow looks like. He better be a 'diamond' himself to be so quick to judge.
2003-04-29 03:04:54 PM  
"Sure I'm insensitive, but you're fat."

Fair is fair.
2003-04-29 03:09:51 PM  
Cerie - You mean 5 minutes isn't long enough?
2003-04-29 03:09:56 PM  
Maybe if those piglets would stop shoving their heads into those the KFC buckets and did a bit of excersise they wouldn't have to complain about this "unrealistic standard".
Whats so unrealistic about wanting a women in a normal weight category?
2003-04-29 03:11:52 PM  
Cerie- as long as the guy got what he wanted why would he care if you were satisfied or not, you got a pair of hands dont ya?
2003-04-29 03:15:41 PM  
yah, that guy's gonna get laid more often now.
2003-04-29 03:21:32 PM  
He's absolutely correct, and it's been that way at Purdue for a looooooooong time.
A whole lot of people -
in Indiana -> attending Purdue -> women at Purdue
are fat.
His little diatribe isn't going to change anything.
2003-04-29 03:42:34 PM  
Hahaha, I almost fell out of my chair when I read this. This guy is on crack. Purdue has a good number of pretty girls; I should know, I go there. You just won't find them in the engineering classes, which are (obviously) a giant sausage-fest. Just sign up for a psych class or something similar and things change.

The kicker is that I think the Exponent has quit accepting Opinions for this semester... so no one can respond to this guy!
2003-04-29 03:45:35 PM  
ahhh.. good old alma mater..

it's true though, when I was there.. nasty chicks and a bunch of dorks running around with big calculators. I never should've transferred from univ of iowa.
2003-04-29 04:02:41 PM  
Going to my IT classes at the U of MN, you'd think there weren't any women on campus at all. Then I go outside, and hot women abound. God I love spring.

For the ladies, here's a good response: "I can lose weight, but you can't lose your virginity."
2003-04-29 04:16:16 PM  
As a former boilermaker, I can relate. Farmers send their sons and their pigs to Purdue. Corn fed is an understatement.
2003-04-29 04:16:38 PM  
Why doesn't he just turn gay? Then those 70+ guy odds sound like a sure thing.
2003-04-29 04:42:38 PM  
And the A$$hat signs it.

I see Josh killing lots of kittens for the next few years.
2003-04-29 05:28:56 PM  
Eh, if he doesn't like the Purdue chicks, that just means more for me. :)

He is an asshat though. I'm sick of other males judging women solely on looks and nothing else. I'd much rather have a smart chick any day. Looks fade. At the end of the day, I'd much rather have a woman that I can talk to and keep me warm than just someone "pretty to look at".
2003-04-29 06:05:47 PM  
The guy is a freaking asshat! I just visited the campus a couple of weeks ago, and I liked what I saw. Kept wishing I could quit my job and go back to school.

Ahhh....those were the days.
2003-04-29 06:38:22 PM  
What good are hot chicks at Purdue anyway?

I heard a rockin' Friday night at Purdue is three dudes splittin' a six-pack and watching "Next Generation" reruns.

/go IU
2003-04-29 07:00:07 PM  
This guy is an asshole, but take it with a grain of salt. He's obviously writing this so people will talk about it - still pretty farked up though.
2003-04-29 08:58:52 PM  
haha I think I know this guy. Or at least, I know a guy who's a Tech-major sophomore at Purdue, with a name identicle to the writer, but a different color for the last name.
Awaiting verification from him that he wrote it (he's afk).
2003-04-29 08:59:00 PM  
2003-04-29 08:59:48 PM  
And knowing the guy, he wasn't trolling, he was serious.
2003-04-29 09:00:06 PM  
Looks like a bunch of farkers are taking the flamebait, despite being told it's flamebait. Who knew?
2003-04-29 09:00:37 PM  
Mmm... I thought college guys tried anything to get laid, not anything NOT to get laid.
2003-04-29 09:01:03 PM  
Mlah: Ummm... welcome to Indiana?

I dunno about that, I'm pretty impressed with bloomington's female pop.
2003-04-29 09:01:17 PM  
Would ya look at that. His name is Josh Brown.

I knew a Josh Brown...he was a farking idiot. Sounds very much like this guy. I wouldn't be surprised if he was the same guy.
2003-04-29 09:01:41 PM  
GIS for "Josh Brown Purdue"

"Sure I'm insensitive, but you're fat."

Heh. Love it. It may take the place of "Move over bacon, here's something leaner".
2003-04-29 09:02:38 PM  
What, does every Purdue student get a free TotalFark subscription when they pay their tuition?

/got nothin, as usual
2003-04-29 09:02:43 PM  
I hope every woman he's ever interested in gets to read that. If he finds one who agrees (and they do exist), they'll be a good match. You know, until she gets pregnant.
2003-04-29 09:02:54 PM  
That was in response to: ction=letters&storyid=salinas
2003-04-29 09:03:20 PM  
"Now a kind guy caring guy he'll be there to the end."

Yeah, but you won't do him because you don't want to 'ruin the relationship'.

It's pretty funny if you take it with a grain of salt. Lighten up.
2003-04-29 09:03:24 PM  
bloomington's female pop

Didn't I see an ad on HBO for a movie about that guy?
2003-04-29 09:03:29 PM  
It made Fark, which means it also made half the radio stations in the country, this may turn out to be bigger than he wanted it to be.
2003-04-29 09:03:50 PM  
Sure I'm insensitive, but you're fat.

Hahahahaha, new sig!
2003-04-29 09:04:03 PM  
the problem with women - they cant finish as quick as us men, we've perfected it, we can get off stuffed in an air vent with only socks on.

so its not our fault men! its thiers! just because we are better dont feel so bad!
2003-04-29 09:06:00 PM  
So they included "flamebait" in the headline and every one of you still got baited?
2003-04-29 09:06:23 PM  
Skinny is ugly. Period.
2003-04-29 09:06:34 PM  
in response to this article

(funny article - I would not have been so quick to write such a thing because you never know...fat chicks can have hot friends!)
2003-04-29 09:07:07 PM  
Ya know honestly and I think the other farkettes can back me up on this. These guys who act like this and think they are just God's give to women. Suck in bed. They suck so bad it isn't funny. They act all big and tough and ready to go, but they are the first to lose it in under 5 minutes...

Truer words have never been spoken!
2003-04-29 09:07:18 PM  
So, what does he expect will happen from this? "Oh no! Josh Brown says there are too many fat girls! I better lose weight!"

By the way, "The Exponent" is a farking stupid name for a newspaper.
2003-04-29 09:07:43 PM  
wow the one it's in response to is a desperate cry for poontang.
2003-04-29 09:07:55 PM  
Retraction in 5..4..3..
2003-04-29 09:08:13 PM  
How much background checking does the student paper do there on letters?

If it was laxed in checking the legitmacy of could just be a prank on the real Josh Brown.
2003-04-29 09:08:25 PM  
he has a point.
2003-04-29 09:08:46 PM  
If a guy sucks in bed just belittle his manhood, I mean, it's not like you want anymore o' that shiat. Then take care of yourself. Easy as that.
