10 Things We've All Seen In The Pit When We Were Just Trying To Mind Our Business And Get To Class
Alexis Byrd

Imagine: you have class in five minutes, you've just emerged from the Student Stores, and the Pit lies before you, vast and impassable. People, tables, tents...everywhere.

Here are a few specific obstacles you may encounter.

1. A Pit Preacher

Giphy

Not the Pit Preacher, but still notable. Whoever it happens to be at the time, he's loud.

2. Gary

Giphy

What is the Pit without the Pit Preacher? Lost.

3. A Capella Groups

Giphy

Shout out to the Achordants for being hilarious—one time when they were selling tickets, they yelled, "We're UNC's number one a capella group...alphabetically!" I lost it.

4. A Bake Sale

Giphy

Usually for a sorority or some kind of honors society. I hope they have enough funding.

5. Not A Drainage System

Giphy

Oh, is the Pit flooded again? It must have been sprinkling again this morning. Should've brought my diving equipment.

6. CUAB

Giphy

I have to include CUAB here because it is an omnipresent entity. Somehow, CUAB is everywhere.

7. The Comp Sci Table

Giphy

Those kids are the Insomnia Cookies plug. I'm not mad at it.

8. The Pit-Sitters

Giphy

You just need to cut through the Pit so you can be on your way to Greenlaw or Chapman or something, but fellow students are determined to form an impenetrable wall of sitting bodies all the way around it. That's fine, I guess.

9. A Line

Giphy

Inevitably there'll be some table giving out free snacks or something, and a million people are willing to wait an hour for, like, Pelicans.

10. Some Student Organization

Giphy

It's a different one every day, and they're always trying to bribe you to join. Example:

"Here, have a free [cookie/pen/sandwich/pin/sticker], you just have to sign your soul over to our group until you graduate. :)"

*gasp* what if the comp sci kids are just after our souls?

I've been giving it some thought, and I think the best avoidance strategy when some random Pit person approaches you is to yell, "Hold on one second!" in your best South Road crossing guard voice.

Happy trails!

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles. The event has also become a cultural phenomenon, with millions of people tuning in each year to watch the big game. There are now commercials, halftime shows, and other events that make the Superbowl a true American spectacle.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.

As your best friend, all I ever want is for you to be happy. Because as best friends, we know exactly what makes the other happy. I know all your weird and quirky lingo. I know how much you hate certain foods and most of all, I know the things that are important to you in life.
