Booze Reviews: Spaten Optimator

For the return of Booze Reviews, I’ve decided to do something different. Spaten is one of the five major Munich breweries (the other four being Paulaner, Augustiner, Löwenbräu, and Hofbräu), and as such they have several hundred years of experience brewing awesome beer. They make several varieties, including a pilsner and an Oktoberfest brew, but my personal favorite is the Optimator.

Friday Funnies: Little Johnny and the Math Teacher

The math teacher saw that little Johnny wasn’t paying attention in class. She called on him and said, “Johnny! What are 2 and 4 and 28 and 44?” Little Johnny quickly replied, “NBC, FOX, ESPN and the Cartoon Network!”

Friday Funnies and the Return of Booze Reviews

Next week marks our first birthday and in traditional hobbit form (thanks Michael, my Lord of the Rings informant), we will be giving out presents instead of receiving them. ‘Cause that’s just the way we roll!

Due to popular demand, Booze Reviews will be coming back to College Being. Nick, one of our occasional writers started the idea with Pabst Blue Ribbon and since, we have reviewed Newcastle Brown Ale, Killian’s Irish Red, Red Stripe, and others. Due to the recent emails I have been getting on the topic, we will start doing Booze Reviews for all you beer drinkers, wine fanatics, and alcoholics that visit College Being.

Also, I will be starting the Friday Funnies. They will consist of small and long, but usually short, jokes every Friday. Fridays are not meant to be taken seriously so we will go to the ends of the Earth to bring you the best jokes to brighten up the fact that your Friday is not yet over and you have to go through eight more hours of work/school. Suckers. :)

Feel free to tip us with any jokes you find extraordinarily funny.

Nerds: Making Things More Complicating Since 1974

1974: The first PC invented. We all thought our lives were good with normal non-HD non-satellite TV, tape and record players, and regular house phones (half of which didn’t even have a buttons). Now here comes the PC. I am attached to my computer because of work and I am thankful as my computer gives me work, but before the PC, life was simpler. (P.S. This is just a guess as I am not that old. This is a college website you old fogies!)

2008: Nerds make ordering pizza three to the third power times more complicating. It’s called Pizza Party. You can now order Domino’s Pizza through your computer using terminal. Woo hoo! I was waiting for this day since my first days of playing with DOS. Why waste that whole minute on the phone? Spend it on your computer since you love your computer and cannot bare being away from it. You nerd!
