PBK: The stats, the stalking, the matching game

Written by

Of 2008’s PBKers, five did not have visible Facebook accounts, and eleven had their privacy settings activated so that Bwog could not see their profiles. But of those who did have Facebooks, see if you can match the PBKer to their favorite Facebook quote. No cheating—it’s PBK.

A. “I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline”

B. “4 mg is still quite a large scale anyway” – boss

C. “it is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a jolly roll-around.”

D. “O, che sciagura d’essere senza coglioni!” -Voltaire, “Candide” 

E. “From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.” Winston Churchill


1. Hans Renata

2. George Olive

3. Julia Kalow

4. Jason Resnikoff

5. Sarah Wansley 

The winner of this game gets a job at McKinsey.


Of the PBKers who were listed in the Columbia directory (and two were mysteriously absent), the majors breakdown is as follows:

Economics: 5.5 (one is a double-major in Environmental Studies and Econ)

English: 2

Physics: 2 

Chemistry: 2

Architecture: 1 

History: 1 

Classics: 1 

Comparative Literature: 1

Italian Literature: 1

Biological Sciences: 1

Mathematics: 1

Environmental Studies: 0.5

A: 5; B: 1; C: 2, D: 3; E: 4

  1. EAL  

    I love the Churchill quote. WC is the man.

  2. According to econ  

    majors, what's the tallest mountain in North America?

    Mt. McKinsey!

  3. Nice job  

    Bwog. FYI, the Columbia directory misses most double or joint majors. A better place to look would be lionlink.

  4. erm  

    bwog, this is creepy. if i were a PBKer i'd be more than a bit weirded out. seriously.

  5. I plowed

    one of the 18 PBKers for a while. I guess it didn't rub off enough. Either that, or unlike her, I had a challenging major.

  6. who the  

    fuck cares? this is bizarre. bwog has jumped the shark. again.

  7. joint majors  

    Of the econs, 1 is econ-math, 1 is econ-polisci, and 1 is econ philosophy. (Could be other joint majors - those are the ones I know of.)

  8. joint majors  

    Also I think another of the econs is a double major w/math.
