#20254

OMG: Who ever keeps posting shit about the FEDs election needs to stop, cause who gives a fuck??

#20253

OMG: The world would be such a better place if everyone could chew with their mouth closed.

#20252

OMG: Lessons from Earth 122 Mid Term: People are dumb, students, TAs and Professors. Since when does a Professor not show up for a mid term that is during class time, I know you are busy but still. It should not take 20+ min to set up for a mid term. I know it is in AL 116 which is a terrible room but still. HINT: If you have a mid term that starts at 11:30am don't show up at 11:50am and if you are the TA running the exam DON'T WAIT FOR THEM.

OMG:
WHO IS WHISTLING ON THE 6th FLOOR OF DP. This is a library not a casual Sunday stroll. I know this is a social study floor but does that need to include everybody listening to you whistle Christmas carols for half an hour?

#20248

OMG: Uhhh. Why aren't students outraged by this?

#20427

OMG: Early thought regarding the election. Fusion was a full day late getting their website up. There are two possible scenarios

#20426

OMG:
A reminder to any UW student who entered Canada's Luckiest Student: Check your email for your invitation to the CLS3 Reveal Party!

OMG: Ok, preliminary rundown of the candidates.

#20424

OMG:
i would rather let my bladder explode than use the disgusting washrooms in DC.

#20423

OMG:
Fusion better not have an item about revamping the Feds website, they can't even put one up.

#20422

OMG: The damn copy/paste thing after the captcha doesn't work on Chrome. Why you need two hoops to jump through to comment?

MOD's NOTE: This shouldn't happen. We are looking into this. Sorry for the inconvenience.

#20421

OMG: It feels strange when you instigate something good and it catches on like wildfire.

#20420

OMG: Yo, Engineering Gradcomm 2015.
Way to poorly announce event plans, give everyone a day and a half to buy tickets and completely undersize all events.
You guys fucking suck.

#20419

OMG: Does anyone else ever wonder what is considered 'normal'? Some days I feel isolated and lonely because everyone else seems so connected, and get overwhelmed and distraught with these feelings. On occasion I self harm.

Updated on Monday, January 26

#20418

OMG: New place doesn't have internet. I feel so lost without being connected online.

#20417

OMG: Walking through buildings on campus on weekends when the a lot of the lights are off. Creeps me out because it reminds me of the university chapter in the Last of Us.

#20416

#20415

OMG: Ok so last term i lost a copper coloured bracelet in RCH.

It looks like a bent railroad ring. my boyfriend got me it, and it really meant a lot to me. I was devastated when I lost it.

I know its been a WHILE and I realize that its probably gone... BUT if anyone has it pls comment on this

Last hope to find it.

MOD'S NOTE: Maybe a pet peeve, but please capitalize next time?   

#20414

OMG: Laser Quest and Roxanne's are really close to each other, is Barney Stinson a city planner for Kitchener?

#20413

OMG: OMG. Team Gold. The one member of this year's exec I actually liked, without any of the political incompetents I didn't. Can we please do the intelligent thing and elect them?

#20412

OMG: I know comments from my iPad don't work, but do submissions work? Seems like anything I post doesn't make it.

MOD'S NOTE: Any other iPad users experiencing this? 

#20411

OMG: VP Internal Candidate here, I will not reveal my identity so as to not cross the line into campaigning. I just want to say that, unlike the incumbent candidates, I have emailed the elections commissioner any time I have thought about doing something that may constitute a violation of policy.

The current FedS exec team should have done the same, to ensure they are not breaching policy.

If you feel that they have violated policy with their AMA, please do file an allegation against them. The more allegations filed, the more likely it will be held against them.

#20410

OMG: This is an honest question, I want to be educated. Why don't animal activists eat meat? I don't want an answer about whether or not meat is healthy for our bodies.

Would vegans and vegetarians consider eating meat if meat was produced in a sanitary and cruel-free way? Or is it the fact that we use animals for food that issue?

#20409

OMG: 1 hour lecture slot- ends 10 minutes before full hour.
2 hour lecture slot- 10 min break, ends 10 minutes before second full hour.
1.5 hour lecture slot- no break, ends 10 minutes before full hour and a half.

As a result classes with 1.5 hour slots have an extra 180 minutes or so a term, the fuck?

#20408

OMG: Should the Canadian Goose be Canada's national bird? Yes!

#20407

OMG: When is the next UW break dancers doing their battle in the SLC? I'd like to go watch them without looking creepy and watching them practice!

Poll #1


#20406

OMG:
The fact that I had to go into 10 different girls bathrooms in 3 different buildings before finding a freaking tampon dispenser is outrageous!

#20405

OMG: Hot tinder chicks, I keep getting matches with you, but no one responds. I swear I'm a nice guy who isn't simply trying to hit it and quit it.

#20404

OMG:
Sitting on toilet, just had explosive diarrhea, felt it on my balls, threw up in lap. Now I have to manage the trip home.
 
MOD'S NOTE: Ah, OMG is back to its roots. 

#20403

OMG: Please, can some of you learn the names of the food that people are making or serving to you... I always hear "this one" or "that here". Makes me feel better when I say "I'll have the chicken" for example, and I see some relief. No one is a mind reader. If you don't know the name of a food or ingredient, study the menu. And don't say "thees wan" if it's written right in front of you. Make all our lives easier!

#20402

OMG: From the Elections Procedures: "Campaigning may consist of, but is not limited to, all forms of advertising or communication ... designed and/or likely to influence voters towards a particular candidate"

How the hell can anyone think that some of those answers are not likely to influence voters towards a particular candidate? As was pointed out, even if this was in the works for months, could you not have postponed it until after elections? Or held it a couple of weeks ago even?

Ben, Stephane, Maaz, shame on you. I hope the voters realize how shady this whole thing was, and kick you out of office.

#20401

OMG:
I am a gym rookie, so if my form is off, PLEASE let me know. I would much rather someone help me out now than me to be working out wrong forever... thank :)

#20400

OMG:
Hey guys, I'm just a random student who is thinking of writing a proposal to create a nap space for students. I'm sure there are tons of logistics like sanitary upkeep and regulations to discourage abuse, but I want your thoughts. Sleep pods are hella expensive 13k each, so might not be viable. It could be a corporate sponsored space? Thoughts and ideas guys?

#20399

OMG: Yesterday I watched as a girl called someone out for wearing a Canada Goose Jacket (for animal cruelty). She better get busy because half of the students on campus wear those jackets.

#20398

OMG: @ DP studying. The continuous loud buzzing is extremely distracting and annoying. We get it, you're closing at 11pm! Why not just flash the lights a couple times as a signal like DC does ?!! It's disturbing :(

#20397

OMG: When did the SLC Silent Study turn into a group study area? In all my 5 years at UW, this is the only year where it hasn't been dead silent... Do the first years just not read the signs posted all over the walls and doors?

#20396

OMG: Today on the MC-DC bridge, a dude with a stick/staff and an orange wig was bellowing at passersby "you shall not pass!"
What even?

#20394

OMG: I'm going to rant so hard. I network efficiently and do have alot of acquaintances, but zero friends in this university. I'm no shy introvert either. OMG look at me, ranting anonymously to a group of anonymous people. Fucking weird. I'm sick of feeling this way.

#20393

OMG: Bacon was on sale ($1.99/375 g) until today. Bought like 16 bags so I'll be eating it for the rest of the term.

Meat eating has never felt so great.

MOD'S NOTE: There is a direct correlation between bacon and oil prices.

OMG:
Seriously MODs? It had been a week since the last update and you're not going to publish any complaints about the infrequency. Maybe if you published on OMG like this, you'd see some of the comments and thoughts of the whole site, rather than just picking and choosing which things you like to hear about.

MOD'S NOTE: We apologize for the lack of updates. Schools has got us bogged down but we promise to update more often this term. We would love to hear your feedback so comment on this post and let us know what you think!
