If you’re coming out of the 116th Street subway stop, be prepared to be serenaded and accosted by some Bible studiers singing melodiously, wielding an array of folk instruments and distributing colorful fliers with butterflies on them.

  9. one of these

    people apprehended me on a downtown train. Despite being a random guy without any CU insignia or other clues as to my identity, his first question was where i'm a columbia student. Being stupid enough to reply affirmatively, I was then given a lecture on how studying the Bible can give me unknown levels of "satisfaction" in life. He must've instilled some fear of Jesus in my shlemazel heart, though, because I restrained myself from telling him precisely where he can go to fuck himself.

  10. err  

    vampire weekend sucks.

  11. praise jesus!  

    for his infinite wisdom and grace

    I fail to see how people singing is intolerant....
