Only about 40 percent of those hookups include sexual intercourse

I think the author might be confused as to what exactly a "hookup" is.  Here's a hint: It involves sex.

What the heck is a non-sexual hookup?  Are they fishing or something?

robohobo: So then the white and wealthy are the ones most likely to have std's? Oh wait, no, just the opposite.


Facts and common sense never influence an author in Slate.  It's their trademark.

Being just out of college, I can attest that the term "hookup" doesn't mean just sex anymore like it used to. Weird how that changed, since hookup used to specifically mean just sex, usually without any of the other bases. Also, anyone can have sex in college, regardless of color or cash.

Honest Bender: Only about 40 percent of those hookups include sexual intercourse


I wonder how many of that 40 percent involved drunken, rope pushing action?

megarian: Whatever the fark I did in college, apparently I did it wrong.

Does anyone have a graph? I'm confused.


remember your formula for a graph?  y=mx+b?  To the author, race is the m (where white =2, and apparently everything else equals like .01), x is the amount of times you attempt, b is your tax bracket, and y is the number of hookups.  Howe'er, in my experience college hook ups are a bit more complicated (and by complicated I mean easier and awesome).  y=(number attempts)(how attractive you are)(amount of game)(BAC of target)+(no one gives a shiat about your money so equivalent to one)(ability to crack a joke).

Now, if you paid attention to your calc one course you'd know that your rate of hooking up is the derivative in regards to x (#of attempts).  So the more you attempt, the more you bag.

Here's the tricky part, some a hole is going to make you take the anti-derivative of this for no reason.  You will never use it in your career unless you're designing a circuit or water flow (or gasp, you're a physicist), so what you do is flip him(or her, we are not sexist in mathematics) the bird, give the appropriate amount of high fives as you walk out the class, then get laid at the next party due to rumors and notoriety.  This is an increase to your x factor by 2.

/sorry this is what happens when I'm drunk

GeneralJim: Subby: "claims columnist who was too ugly to be anyone's regret".
I would hit her without regrets, then take her to dinner and a movie, and hit again. Methinks subby is confused.

Author probably lived in 24 hour quiet dorm.

I got everything out of me with college, found what kind of girl I like to pine after.
