Dear Bwog, I’ve been having some problems with my roommate since we moved in before NSOP. He always leaves his stuff around, meaning I have to walk around his dirty clothes, class books, and used plates/utensils if I want to get to my clean half of the room. He also keeps the room really warm, […]

We all have relationship troubles. Some of us are more promiscuous than others which creates problems, and sometimes we aren’t promiscuous enough.

Dear Bwog, I noticed that there are a bunch of nice-looking “Bike Share” bikes parked in front of Lerner. How do I get one? Sincerely, Bikeless@Butler Dear curious bikeless biker, 2013 seems to be the year of the bike share, with new programs cropping up here in New York City and in San […]
