      I am sorry if you have experienced this at Princeton (and I would encourage you to go hang out at Terrace or one of the co-ops more), but I think that you’re mischaracterizing many Princetonians. Perhaps they’re jerks who act prissy, but many of them have experienced hardships and are just in deep denial about it. It can be hard when people annoy you, but try not to judge them in turn, okay?

    • Realist 11:19 am on December 16, 2014 | Reply

      Because, there aren’t as many smart ones. Intelligence is largely heritable. Hardships are often self-inflicted by stupidity. Therefore people who grow up with hardships are on average less smart.

      im maligned pfml meme buttfucker420. i first started smoking weed and fucking butts when i was about 12. by 14 i got really obsessed with the concept of “weedchill” and tried to channel it constantly, until my thought process got really bizarre and i would repeat things like “yoyo fuck him in the butt” and “i love smoking weed inside my own butt” in my head for hours, and i would get really paranoid, start seeing things in the corners of my eyes etc, basically prodromal schizophrenia. im now on antipsychotics. i always wondered what the kind of “ironic” style of pfml humor was all about; i think it’s the unconscious leaking in to the conscious, what jungian theory considered to be the cause of schizophrenic and schizotypal symptoms. i would advise all people who “get” pfml to be careful because that likely means you have a predisposition to a mental illness. peace.

    • No 11:07 pm on December 3, 2014 | Reply

      no. Well, sort of no. Depends on the toaster. Most relatively new toasters use temperature sensors (probably mechanical, possibly digital if y’all’re real fancy). All you are doing by changing the number is changing the temperature at which the toaster goes “pop”. Some older toasters used timers, but this method doesn’t work as well because you’ll end up with a lot of burnt toast after the first batch if you aren’t careful about adjusting the time as the toaster builds up residual heat. Of course, temperature sensors have the opposite problem, that they pop before the toast is ready if the toaster is already hot.

      Oh and nice steal from imgur/reddit/twatter (not sure which you stole it from).

      try volunteering. people who stick with it are very passionate, but also ask themselves hard-hitting questions. I would also try the environmental initiatives, I met some pretty great people there. Fields Center is doing some pretty exciting and hard work.

      Generally, try to pick an activity with a direct effect that your work has on improving others’ lives (as opposed to Debate, MUN, discussion clubs, etc. Not that they are bad, but they are there for improvement of members’ education).

      Nothing is more rewarding, humbling and invigorating than seeing that you have helped someone. At that point, other people being dumb does not matter.

      ECO is no more difficult, mathematical, or rigorous here than at other top tier schools. It’s also not nearly as quantitatively challenging as math or physics. Unfortunately for many with inadequate math preparation, modern economics is a quantitative field, not simply a fun extension of the fuzzy principles and pop culture talking points which appealed to you in ECO101. Some professors could do well to lecture more slowly, but they can’t be faulted for covering mathematical material, which is fundamental to your understanding of key concepts.

      Unless you’re more interested in winning pointless dinner party debates and padding your resume for investment banks than in actually learning the material

          45.3% of calc BC test-takers score a 5. So 4 in BC is fine, but it doesn’t signal strong math ability, especially because high school math boils down to rote memorization.
          Either no one seems to remember basic algebra and calculus, or they didn’t really understand the concepts initially, rather just eeking by these high school courses.

      Because they roughly occupy the social role that frats and sororities occupy at many other schools. Additionally greek life at Princeton is quite different from what other schools have because of its small size (both in overall representation and in number of members per frat/sorority) and lack of houses. In short, our eating clubs are closer to traditional frats that our actual frats are.

      • Just curious (not OP) 12:30 am on November 24, 2014 | Reply

        But Greek life at other schools is characterized by its selectivity… Roughly half of our eating clubs aren’t competitive at all, and even the most prestigious ones (Ivy/Cottage) accept 50% of their applicants, meaning it really isn’t that hard to get in.

        Also, what is the point of actual fraternities and sororities at Princeton, then?

        • '13 10:27 am on November 24, 2014 | Reply

          Every school is going to have its differences and clubs aren’t exactly the same as frats. Similarly the greek life scene can vary from highly selective to relatively inclusive depending on the school. Outside of princeton no one has any idea what an eating club is, so summarizing them as basically large co-ed frats does an acceptable job of explaining how our system works. (It also helps avoid getting poked fun by people who think the notion of an eating club sounds super pretentious).

          In my mind frats at Princeton play little roll other than to feed the ego’s of predominantly rich white kids who crave yet another layer of social exclusivity. Im obviously extremely opinionated on that front though, so you should ask someone else.

        • let's be real 6:48 pm on November 30, 2014 | Reply

          At most schools, if you just want to be part of A fraternity or sorority, you can almost undoubtedly find one. The organizations considered most socially elite are very exclusive, but there are usually a bunch of others. If there isn’t one that feels right for you/you don’t get in, it’s possible to start your own.

          It’s a lot like eating clubs.

        • Because 8:27 pm on December 4, 2014 | Reply

          People don’t bicker randomly. They already have their fraternity/sorority/sports team affiliation before they come to bicker, so they’re pretty much already guaranteed spots because they’ve already gone through some selective process. It is much more selective for randos bickering, at least at ti/ivy/cottage

      Getting into HYP is statistically rarer than a 150+… I’m surprised we aren’t at least in the 140s. Probably due to all the athletes/minorities.

        And wealthy WASP Kids coming from families who can afford expensive tutors and study aids, as well as a variety of extracurricular activities, internships obtained via family ties, and summer camps, for their children to make up for lack of intelligence.

      I know MAE advertises you normally need an IQ of 125 to do well, and CEE advertises an required IQ 120. Not sure about the other departments, but its probably similar. So yeah, you’re likely a littile below what is required (depending on the department).

        really?…. they SAY that?…
        I’m as far from legacy, athlete or minority as you can get.

        Also this is for real IQ (school-administered etc) not the online ones.

          Just look at the department websites. They do prefer the real-IQ tests, but recommend you average across several more legit online ones if you don’t have a real IQ score.

          I see that CBE also added a recommended score to their department website; they ask for 130, or higher. So they’re the strictest I’ve seen so far.

      I read somewhere once that the average IQ of students in top 20 colleges in 1990 was 140. Given IQ is standardized by age groups, I’d assume Princeton’s average is probably at least 145. I measured my IQ once and for 143 and was told it’s probably higher then recorded (i was sleep deprived and double guessing myself, both of which influence this fairly variable score), and I felt pretty middle of the pack as a student. That might give you a gauge. that being said, IQ is again highly variable And Not Comprehensive, beaten by hard work and passion. Case in point: a friend of mine also took a test, got 124 (pretty low for a fellow Princetonian),and was nonetheless able to graduate from a science field with High honors, a good job, and good graduate school offers he deferred. I on the other hand graduated fourth quintile in a non-STEM field. Intelligence is only what you make of it.

          Although I have thought that, the point of the post was not that. If I really thought I was “so” smart, I would not be saying I’m feeling middle of the pack in terms of intelligence at Princeton.

        So I usually like new characters emerging on pfml. but this one has a name of a present student attached to it. Mods, isn’t this against pfml rules?

          I’ll confer with the other mods about it. You’re right in that we usually don’t allow real names to be used.
