The 8 Craziest Things Kanye West Has Ever Done

There’s no denying Kanye West is one of, if not the most intriguing and extravagant character in modern pop culture. It seems like we can’t go to the grocery store, check the news, go to the bathroom, or check our watches without hearing about him to some degree. From his controversial music, to his controversial wife, to his controversial opinions, he has always been a wild one. But what are the craziest things Kanye has ever done? Here is the definitive list.

1. That time he ran up to the stage during the 2000 Presidential Inauguration to defend Al Gore

If you saw it, you know for sure that you won’t forget it! Nothing on live television compared to when President Bush was being inaugurated in as president, and you saw Kanye running through the crowd to grab the microphone and say, “I’m going to let you begin your term, Mr. President, but Al Gore should have won this election. The results from Florida, a major swing state, were equivocal to say the least. I’m upset by the way this was handled. Is this the democracy our forefathers intended to hand down to us?” The look on George W’s face!

2. That time he tried to destroy a building quicker than a bulldozer could

It was a bold move for Kanye to challenge a bulldozer to see who could destroy a building first, and when he ran at that building and slammed into it with his shoulder with all his might, we all held our breath and asked, “Will he actually do it?” But alas, the building remained completely unharmed. Kanye, however, retained his dignity by spitting at the bulldozer and telling it to appreciate art instead of destroying it.

3. That time he released an album that made someone’s head explode

Ever since the dawn of civilization, scientists have believed that humans could handle any amount of artistic genius. That was until Yeezus hit the scene, of course. This was the album that defied convention, stretched boundaries, and literally made a man’s head explode due to an overflow of sheer, unadulterated, luminescent artistic brilliance that could only come from a man like Kanye West. Make sure you talk to your doctor before listening to Kanye!

4. That time he wanted to relive the birth of his daughter, so he jumped, flew so quickly in the opposite direction of the spin of the earth that time itself reversed, and was able to relive the experience

With his tough-guy facial hair, his “don’t mess with me” resting bitch face, and egomania that extends further than the greatest galaxies, it’s easy to assume Kanye doesn’t have a soft side. But the whole world, along with various living organisms on Mars, let out a collective “awwww” when we saw Kanye fly like Superman in the opposite direction of the spin of the Earth, ruining the space-time continuum permanently, just to be there once again for the birth of his daughter.

5. That time he won a game of checkers against Kim but it was the greatest and most important game of checkers in the entire history of the world

Kanye has done some pretty impressive things, and some would even argue that he is writing history. One thing we tend to forget, however, is when he played a game of checkers with his wife and totally beat her, and it was the most incredible and crucial game of checkers that ever was, and that there was no denying even for a second that Kanye West is the undisputed champion of checkers for all eternity to come.

6. That time he made Paul McCartney famous

There is a common misconception by the younger generation that the new single by Kanye West, “Only One” brought Paul McCartney into the mainstream. Paul McCartney has been famous for more than half a century now, but it wasn’t the single “Only One” that did it. When Paul McCartney was in the early stages of being a Beatle and couldn’t think of a song to write, he would close his eyes real tight, and the spirit of Kanye West from the future would come to him and whisper to him the artistic innovation that led Paul to become one of the greatest songwriters of all time.

7. That time he firmly denied the existence of Spongebob-shaped macaroni & cheese, and it disappeared from all existence

It’s true that “Gangnam Style” is the most-watched YouTube video of all time, but right behind it is the absolutely jaw-dropping video of Kanye sitting across the table from a box of Spongebob-shaped macaroni and cheese, looking at it intently, and saying, “I deny your existence. You are not real” and it completely vanishing. We all had absolutely no idea what he had been talking to in the first place! Absolutely stunning, but we expect nothing less from the one and only Mr. West.

8. That time he created Oregon and Washington

America has been a proud country for centuries now, but we had always been missing a Northwestern region of the country. Many felt that there should be something North of California, but also West of Idaho. It just didn’t feel right with that giant gap that separated California and Canada. But the magical sperm of Kanye solved all that when in June 2013, Kim Kardashian bore his beautiful daughter, Oregon and Washington. Tacoma and Salem thank you, Kanye, for all you’ve done.

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.
