Bucket List: Sexellence, Sustainability and Soros

One of the greatest perks of an Ivy League education is having all sorts of guest lecturers and talks hosted right on campus. Yet many of these great talks are not publicized enough. Enter Bucket List, a weekly feature that aggregates these events in a single location that will hopefully make you realize, like Bwog has, how special our campus is. Our recommendations for this week are below; the full list is after the jump. Have a gander, who knows what you’ll find!

    @CSSR hey Bwog, how about adding the Center for the Study of Science and Religion’s first seminar of the year, “A Tale of Two Socioeconomic Systems”? Tuesday October 5th, 6-7:30 PM in Davis Auditorium.

    @CC '11 sorry posted on the wrong bwog entry.

    @CC '11 I, for one, am not going to make anyone feel guilty for having loud (and hopefully good) sex. Duane Reade sells earplugs for $6, not to mention, I have an iPod.

    Sorry your floormates made you feel guilty about it. They’re just jealous, and if they’re not, they’ve still got no business trying to make you feel like shit about it. Isn’t anything wrong with it, and even if they don’t care to engage in such activity, well, it doesn’t give them a right to try to impose their moralities on to you.

    @... Fuck World Leaders. The website sucks. Went to register at 9AM as indicated and the registration wasn’t working. Had class at 910AM so couldn’t hold my dick for those idiots to open the registration. Sent them TWO emails about the issue and they didn’t get back to me. Fuck you, World Leaders.

      @Anonymous AGREED. Columbia pays thousands of dollars for these speakers to come (money that comes from us, in part) – yet they cant invest in upgrading their servers so that every registration isn’t just a shitblizzard of frustration.
