As is the case in just about any election, from national to student government, there are bound to be a few interesting write-in votes once the ballots are tallied. In last week’s UPUA election, which officially elected Penn State’s Ninth Assembly of undergraduate representatives, plenty of amusing write-in votes were, well, written in.

We all pretty much hate ANGEL. To put it kindly, ANGEL is a very bland and inconvenient course management system. All the same, we're also all pretty much stuck with it for the time being. Luckily, there's a silver lining. As it turns out, ANGEL offers some amazingly obscure themes in its personal settings. We went through them and picked out the very best, just for you. Pick your favorite and make using ANGEL a little bit more hilarious for yourself.

It's that time of the year again. After what seems like an entire year of winter, Mother Nature has finally graced us with some much-needed sunshine, which means at least one thing here at Penn State – daylong season. Just like any other party, there is a list of unwritten rules that one must abide by to insure each precious day of daylong season is executed correctly.

In the name of journalism -- ok, it was mostly because the Drunk Deliveries people haven't expanded to breakfast yet -- I ventured down to the Taco Bell on E. College Ave at 7 a.m. when the doors opened. This one is for history.

Backstreet Boys
If you were at THON this weekend, you definitely noticed "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" by the Backstreet Boys starting off the line dance. Well, way before most undergrads were even teenagers, the Backstreet Boys performed at the BJC as a part of their "Into the Millennium Tour" two nights in a row, on February 11 and 12, 2000. The concerts were filmed and lucky for us, someone put them on YouTube.

As it turns out, the app we were using maxes out at 110 dBA. The unified roar got to that easily, but because it was sustained, the app crashed, meaning we may have broken the 137.6 dBa world record for unified yell. We'll never really be sure, but it's better to believe, isn't it?
