“Go for John Jay instead.”
“I fell asleep at the vegan station once. 10/10.”
“You see, the disjuncture between species-being and product alienation is that the ‘metaphysical niceties’ inherent in the post-Hegelian Harm Principle majority complex take time to affect mass societal productive bounds. I chose Ferris to improve my civic association, but self-interest smacks me with its invisible hand. Dialectical.”
“The only thing missing from the deck is cup holders.”
If you’re looking to sleep in a place that has omelettes, Ferris is probably the way to go.
