As if any university, let alone Harvard, would send back a personalized rejection letter. Do universities even send rejection letters at all? Or personalized letters, other than your name and address at the top?


they send form letters as rejection letters, and certainly wouldn't spend the time calling out the specifics that were wrong.


The girl who wrote this did it as a parody for her school paper. Then a friend of hers posted it online and it took off.

Now she's not at all happy that it's gone viral because she actually is applying to Harvard and she's worried they'll be angry.


Given she has it down as Harvard College, maybe the university will like her humor and will be a contributing factor to her admission


It was a joke?

That episode built serious tension. The commercials during the last half hour though...


#3304960 Huddle Workout Warriors

Yeah, I agree with Darth. 3 days of squats and 2 of deadlifts will burn you out quick, even if you aren't doing a whole lot of reps.

Overall, though it isn't a bad routine to start. As you stick with it, you'll find what works and what doesn't and make your tweaks.

 

I would throw in some curls with dumbbells, too. You may start out only curling 20, but it seems most people make gains very quick when you stick to them. That confidence boost knowing that you've tripled your curl in a short time can be really beneficial.

you should consider reading the rest of the post.

 

I don't know man, 150 years ago was like 45 years before Dietrich Boenhoffer was born




#3303998 Who do you side with in this video, bicyclist or driver?

Posted by Chimera on 29 March 2015 - 12:10 AM

Most drivers can't figure out that the left lane isn't for slow speed cruising, so I don't expect them to know bicycle laws. I stick to green ways.

I also am interested in how it came to be that everyone is now infected. How can that happen? Was it a natural environmental trigger like that terrible M. Night Shamalamadingdong movie "The Happening"? Was it governmental experimenting with mass mind control like the conspiracy theories on chemtrails. Vaccines for viruses?

They never really explained that in the show or the comics. I wonder if they will ever explain it.


It was started by Walter White's blue meth.


#3300004 Realtor and Home Buying

Definitely do not mention that you are looking to buy a house.


#3299801 Season 5: The Walking Dead

Off topic, but one of the things that always bothers me about zombie apocalypse movies/games. Does anyone think that slow moving weak zombies could actually cause the entire US military and communications infrastructure to fail in just a matter of weeks?

I think I read that the spin off show may tackle the very beginning of the story and cover some of this. That to me would be pretty interesting in its own right.

I am watching Dawn of the Dead right now and of course have played The Last of Us at least a dozen times start to finish in addition to dozens of other zombie movies/games and that has always been the first thing I wondered about. How could entire infrastructure fail seemingly overnight?

I ask this with full appreciation of suspension of disbelief in these type of shows. I still enjoy them

 

They were much quicker / smarter in the beginning. The horde in Atlanta used a rock to break a window; they mimicked Rick and Glenn climbing a fence and a ladder. They even ran back then. As humans have died out, the zombies do not have as many opportunities to mimic human movements. They have gotten slower every season as food sources run out. I believe it was even mentioned in show once how much they've slowed down.

 

Also, considering the word "zombie" has not been used once the entire series, it is safe to assume the humans have had to learn the zombie rules on the fly - kill the brain, aroused by noise, etc




#3299754 Bergdahl to be charged with desertion

Posted by Chimera on 25 March 2015 - 10:22 PM

Wait wait wait... I found almost verbatim what I think GLD was saying.

 

Like I said, I am on my phone, so there are no page numbers. It is in Chapter One, the last paragraph before the section called PTSD: REENLISTED FOR NEW WARS

 

What Lembcke said:

 

 

What the Times had in fact discovered was a mode of discourse that enabled political authorities and opinion shapers to pathologize the radical behavior of veterans opposed to the war, and thereby discredit it, while simultaneously appearing sympathetic to the plight of veterans.

 

What Google Larry Davis said:

 

 

while idk this particular guy's mental history i will note that historically there has been a concerted effort to pathologize anti-war behavior among soldiers

 

Now that I have a little more context for what GLD said, I admit I misinterpreted what he said. I interpreted it as soldiers are the ones making an effort to pathologize anti-war behavior. Now I see that is not what he was saying, yes I agree with the sentiment.

^ Best thing i've seen in a long time.


And how exactly did you come up to that conclusion ? and you cant say shlong hunch.


I guess I'll bring back the homoerotic art since people still don't understand this thread isn't for words.

#3296505 best coaches 2015 per rotoworld

Posted by Chimera on 23 March 2015 - 08:20 PM

Yeah I got that wrong I thought the Falcons ended up at 7-9 with a 5-1 divisional record, but they were 6-10. 

 

And the week 17 game with the division (and playoffs) on the line is an example of why I have such a love-hate relationship with Rivera. When the pressure is on, he's very good. (Even if the Falcons had given up on their coach, they were also playing for the division and the playoffs.)

But when Rivera is comfortable, he is hot garbage.

 

It drives me insane that he acknowledges his mistakes and corrects them, only to become complacent and make the same mistakes all over again.

Whatever happened to PornShopClerk? Is he posting under a different name?
He could push people's buttons like nobody else. Only Fiz /Electro's Horse could approach him.

But frash.exe is the best and this place would suck without him. He just needs to change his picture back to smug American Psycho Christian Bale because that's who I see when I read his posts.

 

Frash's snarky attitude in other subforums probably prevents him from being mentioned more in this thread, but his football-related posts are easily some of the most sensible, factual, and well-thought posts on the huddle.

 

...and that's coming from a guy who doesn't always agree with his football posts.




#3293130 Hey Saints Fans

Posted by Chimera on 21 March 2015 - 01:22 AM

Yes. I'm trying to tell you something. Please help me. I'm reaching out. When you have no argument, immediately start insinuating someone is gay. That'll do the trick.

That whole division title thing, that's cute. How many winning seasons has he had in that stretch? One? Oh, so if the division wasn't a shitfest last year, you'd be begging for him to be fired. Dudes coached one winning football team. In most fugging places, that gets you fired. In Charlotte? We just want good enough!


Finished better than you in 3 out of four seasons. All I'm saying is if we're as bad as we say and you finish below us so much...
