Free Food: Stress-Free Majors and Clean Needles!

Written by

Tonight’s free food opportunities might fit best under the “Lemons/Lemonade” heading.

First, the Student Global AIDS Campaign is hosting a dinner and discussion on “Drug Use and HIV/AIDS: the History of Needle Exchange in New York City,” led by Allan Clear, executive director of the Harm Reduction Coalition.  Stop by Earl Hall from 8:00pm-9:00pm for free dinner and a sure-to-be stimulating learning experience. More information here.

After that, CCSC 2012 is holding a “Sophomore Scream” (modeled after the biannual Primal Scream) at 9:30pm on Low Steps. “Why sit in your smoky McBain double,” they ask, “clicking through an online form, when you can declare your major to the skies–even if you don’t know it yet?” Yeah, why should we? They’ll be out in full force with hot chocolate, funnel cake, and a megaphone. Full info in the picture (click it!) or here.

Sometimes, things are tough. Free food: making ’em easier.

    Bwog, I have an Ask Bwog. I have heard many different people say that Dining Services puts laxatives in our food because it is required to. The alleged argument goes: many states require organizations that prepare food for more than a certain number of people (usually several hundred) to put a very small amount of laxatives in the food so that people pass the food before they can get food poisoning from it. Apparently food poisoning takes two days to set in and laxatives get the food out of the system before that. So, in the unlikely event that the mass-prepared food is bad, there is no mass epidemic. Is this at all true? Is it true in any state? Is there a source for this myth, if it is not true?

      another Ask Bwog related to dining... could someone decipher what exactly the little symbols mean on the coffee machines around campus? (like in john jay) on the top there are circles cut into quarters, and underneath there are a bunch of lines. i assume they indicate the amount of time since the coffee was brewed, or the amount of coffee left inside, but i don't know which is which. at least for the self-serve ones, it would be helpful to know if more circles/lines is good or bad.

        OR you can just ask someone working in john jay.

        The circles indicate how long the coffee has been sitting there since it's been brewed; each circle represents 1 hour, with each quarter representing 15 minutes. Typical advice is that coffee left inside the machines for longer than two hours will probably be lukewarm at best and have a less appealing, metallic flavor (i.e. it's not recommended for consumption unless you desperately need a jolt of caffeine). The downward-facing triangle with the horizontal lines represent the amount of coffee left inside the machine. A full triangle indicates a full pot, whereas an empty triangle means no coffee is left. In short, fewer circles and more lines is optimal.
