By web gangsta | Published:

College students are notoriously cheap.  They’re already living in expensive (for them) housing, likely with three or more roommates, and they’re doing everything they can to minimize their living costs.  Pizza, while tasty, isn’t good for you health-wise.

But it is cheap.

Do you wear your FITBIT and try to get in your 10,000 steps every day?  Do you step it up a notch and jog a little bit instead of merely running?  Jogging is supposed to be the best form of exercise you can get, right?

Hashtag Activism and the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge


By web gangsta | Published:

First – before you read any further, if you have either enjoyed the celebrity ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE videos or have participated in making a video yourself…. and if you have not already made a donation to ALS – then GO IMMEDIATELY TO THE ALS WEBSITE AND MAKE THAT DONATION.

And don’t think that just because you didn’t dump a bucket of ice on your head in the name of raising awareness for a charity that’s fighting the good fight for thousands of people, if you laughed even once at the antics of anyone who did do it – you owe ALS money.

If you only have $100, where could you survive the longest?


By web gangsta | Published:

A dollar doesn’t go as far as it used to these days.

Remember when you could buy a candy bar for a quarter?  When pay phones were a dime? (We know – what’s a pay phone?). When a quarter really could get you almost anything – from a can of soda to a round on an arcade game.

Now you’re lucky if you can get the exact same can of soda for $1 or $1.50. Manufacturing costs and vending machine costs haven’t really made the price jump that high. It’s merely INFLATION AT WORK. Continue reading IF YOU ONLY HAVE $100, WHERE COULD YOU SURVIVE THE LONGEST?
