Fratfix – Simple Economics

I’m sure you all know SOMETHING about economics, and there’s nothing more simple than supply and demand. That is, when a service or good is in demand, someone will usually step up and supply that good. Here at Penn State, what do we demand? Big 10 championships. God-like football coaches. Clutch field-goal kickers. Money for the kids.

But an under-appreciated (until now) demand is that of fixing all the things that frats break. Imagine you’re a fraternity brother, you’re having a party, and someone breaks a window. It doesn’t matter how it happened, what matters is that the windows broken and it’s cold outside! What are you going to do? You could fix it yourself, but that would probably require actual effort. So you duct tape a piece of cardboard over it, and that seems to do the job.

Are you tired of that being your only option? It no longer has to be! Fratfix is here to help you out! Fratfix’s stated goal is to “assist fraternities with preventative maintenance and management of the fraternity house physical plant.”

Honestly, this company is a brilliant idea. Sure, there are tons of companies out there that do the exact same things for normal houses, but none of those have the word “Frat” in the name! Come on, who do you want to come lay your pipes? Some middle-aged guy with plumber’s crack, or Fratfix?

The Future of Footwear Comes to Penn State

A new fad has hit Penn State, one that threatens to be greater than Pogs, Pokemon, and Yo-yos combined. They make you feel like Buzz Aldrin, and make Sketchers’ ShapeUps look conservative.  I’m referring, of course, to Kangoo Jumps (KJs). Already rumored to be featured on the Richard Simmons comeback exercise video (full disclosure: the author started this rumor…right now), Kangoo Jumps are taking State College by storm, in all their goofy glory.
