11 Facts About Vermin Supreme
Marc Nozell

If you're an American old enough to vote, you've probably been experiencing a sort of sinking feeling over the past few months —something similar to being at a restaurant and wondering what to get. A restaurant with an extremely short menu and rather nasty food. A restaurant where not ordering isn't even an option. While I can't really help you with this mess, I can at least educate you on another Presidential option: Vermin Supreme! Here all the facts you really wanted to know about our best Presidential candidate.

1. Yes, that is his legal name.

He changed his name to Vermin Love Supreme in the 1990s. Unfortunately, an anonymous harasser has been threatening to reveal Supreme's birth name and personal info. The politician responded with this sassy letter.

2. He is registered as a Republican

But his actual political views are somewhere between Republicanism and Libertarianism.

3. He's a movie producer and actor

A documentary about him was even featured in the Minneapolis-St. Paul film festival in 2014.

4. He was once a nuclear disarmament activist

In 1986, at age 25, he participated in the Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament.

5. He's an art school dropout

While many politicians are law school grads, Supreme dropped out of a Baltimore law school and got involved with the city's underground music scene.

6. He wants to fight the United States' "moral and oral decay"

"A country depends on its ability to bite back," he states in a speech with more dentistry-related puns than you'd expect to hear in one place. Supreme's plan includes secret dental police, dental reeducation centers, preventative dental maintenance facilities, and government-issued toothpaste containing a harmless, addictive substance.

7. He admits that "a vote for Vermin Supreme is a vote completely thrown away."

The most honest campaign slogan yet.

8. He promotes a pony-based economy

Additionally, Supreme would provide a free pony for every American in order to create jobs and make the economy less dependent on foreign oil.

9. He is a proponent of a zombie-based energy system

Also to combat our dependance on foreign oil, Supreme promises to find an energy source in what he calls "the awesome power of zombies."

10. He finished fourth in the New Hampshire Primary


11. He once delivered his 30-second closing statement in song

I think everyone has secretly wanted to do this, but Supreme boldly ended his remarks at a presidential forum to the tune of the Chicken Dance.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
