    @This theme is genius.

    @i wonder what other treasures columbia is hiding from us

    1. Alum says:

      @Alum Columbia sold that painting more than 30 years ago. It is now being sold by a subsequent owner.

      The painting was donated on the condition that Columbia later sell it and use the proceeds (I think) to endow a professorship.

      1. news says:

        @news The article to which the headline which mentioned the painting is linked mentions those very facts. In light of that, I don’t know what is more interesting, the fact that you revealed it as if it were privileged knowledge or the fact that the headline on this page doesn’t acknowledge the contents of the article in the link? Excuse my sarcastic mood.

        1. Well, says:

          @Well, I guess it does acknowledge the fact that the Rembrandt is no longer Columbia’s by prefacing “Columbia’s” by “old.” Still, all Rembrandt’s are old…

        2. Alum says:

          @Alum The comment I was responding to suggested that CU had been hiding this painting. Its author evidently either did not read or did not understand these facts, so I pointed them out.

  • GSer says:

    @GSer Why does student services tell us that CVS on Amsterdam and 96th accepts FLEX when they do not? (According to the manager of the store when I was there…) Why do I have to now go out-of-pocket for drug co-pays instead of using the Flex monies I had budgeted for this expense? Thanks alot Columbia student “services”!

    1. dude says:

      @dude you are old. Why would you of all people use flex?

      1. wow says:

        @wow That is so lame. You sure you actually go to CU? Are you maybe one of those drunk jerks that hits Koronet at 1 a.m.? Or is only here because he couldn’t figure out what else to do for four years of his/her life?

        1. wow says:

          @wow what a shocking inability to string a sentence together.

          ‘Drunk jerks who hit Koronets at 1 a.m.’ – lord have mercy on your soul. I’ll see you in a few years when you are running SDA.

      2. ... says:

        @... i’m old, and i use flex because it provides me with inordinately long transaction processing times during which i can take teeny-weeny little mental vacations from the hustle and bustle of the daily reality i face.
