ey there. You’re currently
reading the editorial, and if
you’ve read any of my other
editorials so far this year, you probably think that I’m about to jump
headfirst into a torrent of lame jokes
about this issue’s theme. If that’s
the case, I don’t blame you because
that’s pretty much my thing. However, I’m going to start it off a little
different this time, so bear with me.
Heh, bear. Rawr.
As a humor newspaper, we have
a great appreciation for every genre
of comedy, and often try to incorporate as many of them as possible into
our work. And I think we’ve done
a damn good job of that this year,
except when it comes to one classic
comedic staple of humanity’s laughter diet: slapstick. We simply don’t
write enough articles that hit you
in the face or pull your pants down
while you’re reading. Sure you can
rub the back page all over the face
of someone you don’t really like, but
let’s face it, that becomes a lot less
fun once your victim decides to beat

the shit out of you for doing it.
If there’s anything I’ve learned
from America’s Funniest Home Videos having been on the air for 23
years, it’s that laughing at idiots who
film themselves getting kicked in the
balls never gets old. It really is too
easy, you just have to find something
stupid, show it to other people with a
humorous pretext, and bam! You’re
a comedy wizard.
Now that’s where all these giraffes
you may have been wondering about
come in. You see, with a theme
like “National Toikeographic”, we
needed am angle for our slapstick
humor, and thankfully evolution
gifted us with exact that, in the form
of a wondrous creature known as the
I don’t need to explain anything,
you can see it all right from the pictures. Giraffes are basically like the
teenage boys of the animal kingdom: they’re tall and lanky, pretty
awkward, make lots of stupid faces,
get into trouble and generally mess
everything up. It’s adorable, and
evidently it’s also the best answer
for slapstick comedy within a newspaper that we could come up with.
Interestingly, it seems to work better
if you smack yourself in the face with
a banana peel while reading, so you
might want to give that a try.
Other than that, before you delve
into the issue I just want to congratulate everyone involved in Skule
Nite for another amazing show, and
assure everyone that anything that
may or may not be located on page
five of this issue is intended to be entirely of a joking nature. Mostly...
Now, without further distration,
please continue reading the rest of
this wonderful paper.

The Toike Oike is produced anew each month using 3 bottles of Cuervo,
a Commodore 64 and a pirated copy of Microsoft Paint. Typically, our
staff meetings devolve into testosterone-fueled creative arguments,
resulting in a good ol’ fashioned Mexican standoff followed by some selfdestructive competitive drinking. Once everyone achieves a healthy B.A.C.
of approximately 0.25%, the migrant tequila fairies stealthily deposit a fully
completed Toike issue onto our hard drives.
The Toike Oike began in Washington D.C. in 1888 as a club for an elite group
of academics and wealthy patrons interested in travel. It has since evolved
into one of the largest non-profit scientific and educational institutions in
the world, with interests in geography, archaeology and natural science, the
promotion of environmental and historical conservation, and the study of
world culture and history.
The radical, ultra-naturalist opinions expressed in this newspaper reflect
those of the Engineering Society and the University of Toronto. In fact, they
even reflect the opinions of the writers. NOT! If you happen to find any of the
material within these pages offensive, do not try to sue us, as we have a crack
team of racially diverse lawyers ready to bring tha pain and give out mix tapes.

Study: Massive asteroid strike
might not be a bad idea
Would solve problems like violence, poverty, war, and hunger, claim scientists
by Kate Middleton
Toike Oike Expert Existentialist
r. Andrea Cheng, PhD in
Environmental Sciences
and professor at Georgetown University, has been making waves in the scientific community after the results from
her recent study were published
late this week. In the paper, Dr.
Cheng claims that a cataclysmic,
large scale asteroid impact represents the best possible solution to
nearly all of the global challenges
humanity is currently facing.
“I don’t understand why people are so surprised,” Cheng told
the Toike in a phone interview.
“Humanity moves forward by
finding simple, efficient solutions
to complex problems, and an asteroid striking the Earth is a perfect example of a simple solution
to pretty much all of our biggest
According to Cheng, should
an asteroid of the right size – say,
a few kilometers in diameter –
strike Earth with sufficient velocity, humanity would see a nearly-immediate 100% decrease in
violence, poverty, pollution, disease, corruption, and oppression.
“All these issues – including,
given our history of biological
warfare, disease – would pretty
much instantly disappear. We’ve
run thousands of simulations
using state-of-the-art modeling
algorithms, and everything seems
to agree with these findings.”
Those objecting to Dr. Cheng’s
findings have criticized her implication that the death of humanity

“It’s not like the earth hasn’t
been hit by a huge asteroid before,” Cheng continued. “This
one would just come with the
added benefit of fixing our problems for us. It’s sort of like the
universe would be doing us a favour, if you think about it.”
The rest of the scientific
community has been quick to

Trained chimpanzee earns 4.0 in EngSci
Savvy simian surpasses other EngSci students in math, physics, and programming
by Nikola Dimiskovski
Toike Oike Monkey Business
any Engineering Science students were seen
holding their ears and
puffing their cheeks in hopes of
emulating the success of their
fellow classape James Cornelius
in the wake of last semester’s
engineering rankings. James, or
“Jimmie” a west-Asian trained
chimpanzee, earned a perfect
4.0 GPA and the #1 rank in the
notoriously difficult EngSci program. It seems Jimmie had gone
entirely unnoticed, as one source
was documented openly saying “I
thought I noticed a strange smell,
but to be honest most of us have
been too busy with problem sets,
exams, and design projects to
When approached about his
success, Jimmie (who speaks
in an uncanny British accent)
claims “I simply read the textbook and attempted the problems, ergo I see, I do.” It seems
this chimp has made monkeys of
all “Engsci” students by throwing
a wrench in their storied “thisprogram-is-so-hard-not-evenan-extremely-talented-monkeycould-do-it” campaign. James
can be seen around campus riding on his colleagues’ backs as a
means of quicker transportation
which annoys some students
where “somebody get this damn
dirty ape off my back!” is heard
on a daily basis.
James’ trainer, affectionately
referred to as Uncle Zaius, was
able to elaborate on this unlikely
ape’s saga. As Zaius explains, he
found Jimmie in the depths of
the west-asian bamboo forests
working for an illegal Math Circus. “It was awful for him, I mean
truly degrading. They made him
execute volumes of rotation using
cylindrical shells” Zaius confided
with a grimace. Sources say audiences “ooh ooh-ed and ahh ahhed” at impressive acts such as triple hairy integrals done with just
his toes, nth order schwartzien
quantum equations done in sign
language, and the show stopping
hyperbolic vine swing.
Jimmie was able to give more
insight on his baffling results.
“Well calculus comes naturally
to me, I mean the integral sign
is essentially two bananas stuck
together. This program is just not
that hard.”
The faculty has embraced the
addition of Jimmie and professors are pleased that at least one
student does not feel compelled
to screech and fling feces during
midterms and exams.
Idaho first-grader suspended five

likes encouraging THE VIOLENT
"It started off as a writing exercise," said school teacher Donna
McPherson in an exclusive interview, "and it quickly developed
into something far, far worse." Ms.
McPherson of Liberty Eagle Elementary School was reportedly
watching Noah complete his writing exercise at 1:36pm when the incident occurred.
"As I watched him over his
shoulder, he had already written 'I
like to chew' and started onto the
next word. In a matter of seconds
he finished the first letter, a lowercase G, and I immediately broke out
into a cold sweat. I struggled to remain calm, mentally reviewing the
Pictured above: The horribly offensive page from Noah’s notebook
teacher's handbook and praying to
Jesus that this wasn't the g-word I
saw on the news.
By the time he finished the second letter, a lowercase U, I already
knew I might not see my family again. As my legs struggled to
support my weight, tears dripping
down my face, I stood paralyzed
and time appeared to stand still. For
a moment I fantasized about getting to rub this in the faces of all the
teachers who voted against arming
school teachers with taser rifles, but
I quickly realized that I might not be
alive to witness it myself. Heart racing and vision blurring, I watched
him start on the next letter.
Suddenly, before I knew what
was happening, I was blessed with
an inhuman burst of strength. As
the blood rushed to my face I let out
a shriek, ripped the child out of his
seat, and threw him across the room
into a coat rack with all the power
of a Ford Focus. Voice cracking and
flinging bits of phlegm, I screamed
at him to get up and go to the prin-
ciple's office. In tears, the child fled,
and the last thing I remember before blacking out was trying to dial
911 on my BlackBerry."
Donna McPherson was compensated $750,000 by the school board
for emotional damages and will be
spending the next 2 years at statefunded therapy in Hawaii. Fortunately, this cost was covered by the
profits earned in the Idaho State
Charity Rally for New Textbooks,
and so the Idaho School Board Association will not be facing additional debt this year.
The parents of Noah were sent
a letter concerning Noah's behaviour, and Noah will be spending the
next 10 years in mandatory angercounselling sessions before being
allowed to continue school ensuring that he never thinks about acts
of violence or defies authority again.
Although the Idaho School
Board Association admits this was
sparked by a misunderstanding,
they are not considering appealing
the zero-tolerance policy on pretend guns and are instead voting to
rename "gum" to "freedom chew"

WWF announces new endangered species
The rarely-seen “sober university student on St. Patrick’s Day” at risk of disappearing completely
by Jay Sean
Toike Oike Irish Correspondent
n its recent campaign to raise
awareness about donating to the
organization, the WWF (World
Wildlife Foundation) announced a
new endangered species requiring
immediate monetary donation from
the entire world.
The sober student on St Patrick’s
Day (sapian lameeeian) is a group
that can be identified by their zero
blood alcohol levels on St. Patrick’s
Day. They are typically found hiding in libraries and common rooms
across most university campuses.
The species has taken the wildlife enthusiast community so long to
identify due to its camouflage ability.
For 364 days of the year, this special
group appears exactly the same as
their university classmates. But each
year on March 17th, these creatures
exhibit abnormally high levels of
speech ability, fine motor skills and
general coherence unlike others in
dwelling in the campus ecosystem.
Perhaps the truly astounding trait
of the lameeeian that has amazed
the global community is their lack of
vomiting tendencies. Some specialists speculate that these creatures
may even process the ability to operate motor vehicles on St Patrick’s
Day. There is such an immense interest to see the lameeeians in their
natural habitat that the Engineering
Science Common Room is now operating daily tours.
The WWF has observed that the
species has already become extinct
at the University of Western Ontario,
and an official spokesperson for the
WWF released a statement today asking enthusiasts to refrain from pressuring these special students to consuming alcohol (including both beer
and green beer) on St Patrick’s Day,
for the good of the species.

UTORwin Earns Name
Change to UTORlose
After years of being forced to access
the internet through “UTORwin”, a
campus Wi-Fi network with a user
experience that “could make the
Dalai Lama want to choke a baby,”
University of Toronto students
got some good news on Monday.
The university finally made the
decision to follow through with
a rebranding of the oft maligned
“UTORwin”, changing the name
to “UTORlose” to better reflect the
network’s true proficiency. The two
other campus networks, “UofT” and
“eduroam”, which work instantly
when connected to, do not require
continuous log-ins, and have been
described as “bitchin’” by the
general student populace, will not
be affected. Changes in the network
name are expected to be finalized by
the end of April 2015.

RIAA Sues Somalian
Pirates, Legal Battle to
The Recording Industry Association of America has launched a legal
battle against what Chairman Cary
Sherman calls “rampant and illegal piracy” in Somalia. The lawsuit,
submitted in California Superior
Court, contends that the accused
“knowingly, and with malice intent,
did commit acts of piracy in violation of international and domestic
American laws.” The lawsuit seeks
damages to ‘artists’ totalling an unprintable sum. Sherman contends
that “each piece of artwork pirated
is a priceless piece of human culture, and cannot have a price justifiably attached to it, or at least
100 million dollars per song, that
seems reasonable…yeah.” When
contacted for comment, the accused
Somalians did not speak English.
However, translated earlier ransom
demands indicate that the alleged
pirates were only copying backups
of files they already owned, and that
they “were going to buy it anyway,
but now [we] won’t out of principle.

New Single: Swift Shop
Episode IV:
A New Pope
Leafs Win Cup
Country pop star Taylor Swift, 22,
stormed to the top of the Billboard
100 charts yesterday after the release of her new single, Swift Shop.
“As with most of my songs, this one
was inspired by a past relationship,”
Swift said in an interview, and according to rumors swirling across
gossip sites, the song is based on
her secret fling with Ben Haggerty
– better known as rapper Mackelmore – last month. Sources say that
the couple broke it off after Mackelmore tried to take Taylor on a date
with “only $20 in his pocket,” and
expressed a frequent desire to wear
her grandfather’s clothes.

TORONTO, ONTARIO oronto hockey fans were
treated to a second Christmas this winter as - for the
first time in 45 years - the Toronto
Maple Leafs were able to bring
home the winning cup.
The winning cup, picked up by
Leafs Center Tyler Bozak, was purchased at 4:29pm on March 8th
from the Tim Hortons at King and
University. It was a large coffee, a
double double.
"[It] was really hot when I first
got it, way too hot to drink," remarked Bozak in a post-victory
interview, "but I was able to hold
it by only touching the plastic lid
and bottom edges until it cooled."

Upon finishing the drink, he rolled
the rim upwards to find it was winner.
Bozak, who has been trying a
more aggressive style of play this
year, proved himself as the Leafs
most valuable player in picking up
the winner. However, he was also
quick to credit his teammates for
the role they played.
“Well, it was Reimer who first
suggested that we grab coffee,” Bozak recounted, “so Phaneuf drove
us all to the Timmy’s while Kadri
fiddled with the radio in the front
seat. Lupul helped navigate with
google maps and Orr stuck his
middle finger and yelled “fuck you”
at a guy who cut us off. Once we got
there, Kessel passed me a toonie
because I didn’t have change.
Then Van Riemsdyk screened the
cashier while I slipped the toonie
past her. It truly was a team effort.”
Leafs Goalie James Reimer was
overcome by emotion as he spoke
to reporters during the post-win
celebration. “Seeing all the boys
take a drink from the cup after we
won was a really special moment
for me,” he remarked, wiping tears
from his eyes. “I’ve been dreaming about that moment ever since I
was a little kid.”
The winning cup was brought
back to the Leafs’ dressing room
later that afternoon, and team officials have confirmed that, as per
NHL tradition, each member of
the team will be granted the privilege of spending a full day with the
“This team has worked extremely hard all year,” coach Randy Carlyle said, beaming from ear
to ear as his players’ raucous celebration continued. “They deserve
to finally have a taste of success.”
The grand prize of a free hot
beverage of any size was redeemed
by Bozak later that day in the
hopes of possibly attaining another winner. “It would have been
funny to win another free coffee,”
said Bozak, completely unfazed by
yet another defeat, “but frankly, I
was just pleased to win once.”

artsci courses present an odd
challenge to those not accustomed
to going to lectures, maintaining
consciousness, or listening to
professors: you actually have to pay
attention and take notes. It seems
that to learn geography or history,
students need to learn from experts,
or at least remember enough of
what the ‘expert’ says to regurgitate
it onto an exam.
This is problematic for many
students. A large portion of artscis have no inclination to attend
or pay attention in class. But they
also need notes. Thus, these freeloading morons use the glories of
the internet to request these notes
from attentive, or at least neurotic,
students. This traditionally takes
the form of mass emails to the entire class, up to 1200 students, asking for notes because of illness or
alarm clocks or overworking, or

The reply:
Alice is right, guys - we can do better.
From now on we have to pull together. We will all meet after every
class to compare notes and compile a master set of only the best
points, which we will then present to Alice. This will ensure that Alice
is always up to date with course material.
Regarding essays, we will form a group of the top five students who
will collaborate on Alice’s essays and submit them on her behalf. This
is to be done before we start work on our own essays and we must
ensure that we do not repeat any sources or material, lest suspicions
of plagiarism fall upon Alice.
We will convene after next week’s lecture to find an Alice look-alike,
who will borrow Alice’s T-Card and write the exams in her stead. You
will, of course, forgo writing your own exam and receive a mark of
zero, but that is part of the sacrifice that we must make for Alice.
Further, we will institute a rotating lunch schedule wherein each day
(including weekends) one of us prepares and brings lunch for Alice.
Learn the list of foods Alice does not like to ensure that you do not end
up wasting her time. Be sure to include dessert, as Alice enjoys this as
part of a complete meal.
I have surveyed the class and have noted that there are several burly
individuals in it. You are responsible for carrying Alice between classes and to her house/residence. Should it be raining, an additional person will be required to carry an umbrella to make sure that Alice does
not get wet.
Finally, we will need two palm-wavers and one grape-dropper.
I’m sure if we all work together, we can do what it takes to get Alice
through this course.

even all three at once. The slacker
usually adds a nice please/thank
you and a brief insincere apology
to give their freeloading a veneer of
earnestness. They may also not be
considerate enough to spell or conjugate properly. If you cannot ask
for notes from an individual in the
class you know or are willing to converse with, then maybe this course
of action is justified, once. But the
repeat offenders must face (internet) justice.

Dear fellow students,
My name is Jake, and I am an international student from Nigeria. I
am writing to you because I am in a dire situation, and I have heard
that you can provide me with powerful assistance. My uncle, who recently passed, was the dean of political science at University College
Lagos. His substantial academic work is currently being held by the
university administration, as his academic will was left unpublished
prior to his demise.
I am writing to you so that we may together access and retrieve his
work. As part of the academic exchange program, the university administration demands a small fee of lecture material before they release his notes. To do this, I ask you to send me your course notes as
soon as possible, so that we are able to pay the academic holding fees
the administration demands. Out of his thirty-five published papers,
as a joint-beneficiary you would receive seventeen, as well as onehalf of his unpublished book.

haven’t much time until the administration takes the work from us.

Dear Fellow Students,
I have noticed over the course of our course
(of course) that many
students have stopped attending lectures, and
are now requesting
notes via mass email. This troubles me great
ly, as not only are the
emails repetitive, uncreative, and annoying,
but wholly inefficient.

I propose that we select among the remaining
lecture attending
students the best and most attentive note-taker
, and have them, of
their own FREE WILL, and under NO COER
CION, distribute their
notes to the rest of the class.
This Marie Antoi-note-taker would of course
compile any questions
any of us may have before lecture, and ask
them on our behalves.
I feel that this arrangement would be to the
benefit of everyone,
as we would all get notes, and the note-taker
would finally get the
satisfaction of not having to hear from all the
wonderful, studious,
hard-working students asking for the note-taker
's lecture notes.

ollowing a relatively poor
start to the school year, the
Sigma Phi Alpha (ΣΦA) fraternity has slumped into a brutal
beer pong losing streak. According
to semi-credible drunken eyewitness reports from recent parties,
ΣΦA’s teams haven’t won a game
since December, and have been averaging only two sinks per game in
the last month.
Frustrations finally tipped over
last Friday, after the sixth straight
loss of the night prompted a ΣΦA
brother to drunkenly challenge his
opponent to a bro fight. Both individuals had reportedly gone flannels off, called each other “pussies,”
and were swinging their fists wildly
while instructing their bros to “hold
me back,” before the situation was
“You can tell that this slump is
hitting everyone in the house hard”,
says former ΣΦA beer pong MVP
Andrew Jerabek. “No one’s taking
us seriously anymore. Hell, I don’t
think I’ve seen two girls make out at
one of our parties in months.”
The losing streak’s effects have
been widespread on ΣΦA house,
with the formerly epic parties featuring endless cheap beer and other
various substances having dwindled down to a few brothers getting
drunk on the couch. The recent beer
pong losing streak has even forced
all the members of ΣΦA to drink all
the beer themselves instead of using
- 56,898 Tacquitos ($3/5 @7-Eleven)
- 15,662 Liters Personal Lubricant
($1263.80/55 gal drum @Amazon)
- 115km of Spongebob Squarepants
Duct Tape ($7.50/10 yard roll @Tape
Pictured above: The sinks just haven’t been happening for ΣΦA
it to get girls drunk at their parties.
“I haven’t hooked up with a
sorority girl in months,” confided
ΣΦA brother Jimmy Tate. “It sucks.
Back when we were top house for
beer pong, the bros and I would be
Eiffel Towering some girl, like, once
every two weeks, minimum.”
For the last two weeks, ΣΦA
has put their efforts towards turning around their misfortunes, playing “casual beer pong” at the house
every night and hitting the gym to
get shredded. According to numerous members of the house, getting
swole by pulling mad reps will definitely help them win at beer pong
sometime soon.
Perhaps the largest concern
at the moment for ΣΦA is future
recruitment. The recent string of
losses has brought ΣΦA down 6 positions in the league, significantly
lowering the fraternity’s reputation.
With new recruitment now only a
few months away, there seems to
be little interest in joining ΣΦA and
members are worried that the reputation of beer-pong supremacy is
forever ruined.
The cause of this losing streak
has been a heavy subject of speculation among students. Some think
that the recent trade of Eric Andersson from Delta Kappa Epsilon has
changed the team mindset of the
fraternity, while others consider the
change from Pabst Blue Ribbon to
James Ready beer to be the cause
for this streak.
ΣΦA hopes to achieve supremacy again, but the first priority re-
- 1,896 Flemish Giant Rabbits ($50 ea
- 791 years of Brazzers porn
subscription ($9.99/month)
- Enough fireworks to probably cause a
second Sandford Fleming fire
- 8 working weeks of lapdances at Zanzibar ($20/4 minute song)
mains: snapping their losing streak.
Next week they face off against ΔKΕ
in the season-ending showdown for
another chance at redemption.
“Thank god we get the porn
channel in this house,” Tate commented when asked if he was looking forward to another shot at
breaking the streak. “It’s about the
only thing I actually look forward to
every week anymore.”

TORONTO, ONTARIO his past March 8th, the world
saw the successful completion of yet another International “What About the Men!?” Day.
March 8th, which is perhaps
more commonly known as International Women’s Day, is a day during which misogynists around the
world gather to ask the question,
“Why do we need an International
Women’s Day? What about men?”
“I just don’t get it,” said Joe McTavish, 22. “Women already have
equal rights. They need to shut up
and stop complaining already.”
Kaur Sanjesh, an advocate for
women’s rights in Toronto, issued the following comment: “It
isn’t that women don’t have rights
– though in many places they still
don’t. What’s worrying in Toronto is that despite women having
rights, sexism does still exist. International Women’s Day is not a day
about complaining. It’s a day meant
to celebrate the victories and commemorate the losses that have been
felt in the long struggle for women’s
rights, a struggle that continues to
this day.”
Said McTavish in response to
Sanjesh’s remarks, “Any woman
who thinks women need more
rights is a man-hating lesbian.”
“Look,” said Bruce Hamilton,
19. “I get that women’s rights are
a big deal. But I’m not a bad guy!
I would never hurt a woman, and I
don’t think any of my friends would,
either. I guess I just don’t see why
there has to be a day for them, you
know? Like, that’s just celebrating
something they were born with.
That would be like having a White
Person Day, you know? That’s racist, and International Women’s Day
is sexist.”
When asked to comment on
Hamilton’s remarks, Sanjesh said,
“The achievements of women
throughout history, and the nature of the worldwide struggle for
women’s rights, often aren’t given
the attention they deserve. Interna-
tional Women’s Day is not really a
day for women to celebrate having
been born with two X chromosomes
– in fact, that is very much not the
point, as that would be exclusionary of trans*women and other
women who fall outside the gender
binary. The point of International
Women’s Day is to celebrate the
history of women, because often
when we hear about history we are
told about the history of men and
history which exclusively men were
involved with. This day is not sexist.
Rather, it is an answer to the sexist
nature in which most of the world’s
history and humanity’s accomplishments are presented to us.”
“Look,” McTavish said, “I like
women. But if we keep letting them
think they’re oppressed and whatever, they’re going to take over the
entire world, and what would happen then? A world run by women
would be all, like, emotional and
pink and shit. I’m not sexist; I’m
just saying. There’s no point in having an International Women’s Day.
Women have rights. They’re just
“Exactly,” Hamilton added.
“What are they even complaining
about? Women get respect. Women
have even more power than men,
I’d say. I mean, when was the last
time you heard about a women getting hurt? If I hit my girlfriend, I go
to jail. If my girlfriend hits me, it’s
a joke, or something. If anything,
men are oppressed, not women. It’s
downright dangerous to be a man in
this world these days. Women have
it really easy. They have to stop
making a big deal out of nothing.”
In other news, it is estimated
that one in every three women will
be sexually assaulted or raped in
her lifetime; according to the U.S.
Department of Justice, a woman is
raped somewhere in America every two minutes; and on December
28, 2012, the unnamed 23-year old
victim of a brutal gang rape in New
Dehli died due to the irreparable
damage and harm caused to her by
her rapists.

Ability to withstand subzero temperatures while waiting in line for the club
finally explained
by Russell D. Jimmies
Toike Oike Science Reporter
he “party girl”: world renowned for her ability to
withstand subzero temperatures while waiting in line for bars
and nightclubs, wearing nothing
more than some makeup and a
small dress. For years, scientists
and engineers have dismissed her
unnatural resilience to frigid temperatures as a byproduct of elevated
blood alcohol levels and a desire to
conform to social pressures.
However, according to a recent
study published by the Department
of Human Biology at the University
of Toronto, the thermal properties
of “party girls” might actually hold
the key to revolutionizing the study
of how the human body interacts
with cold.
“Didn’t it ever strike you as
weird how some girls can just stand
outside in the winter, waiting to
get into a nightclub, without ever
showing signs of being cold?” asked
study lead author Dr. Peter Noh.
“That question was at the heart of
this study, and our results led to
some surprising conclusions to say
the least.”
Dr. Noh and his team conducted
their experiments with a group of
18-25 year old female study participants. Each participant was instructed to prepare as if they were
going clubbing, and most showed
up slightly tipsy, wearing strapless,
sequined, sheer, or lace tops, as well
as leggings, miniskirts, and various
types of dresses. The participants
were then placed in a wind tunnel
simulation of winter conditions and
observed by Dr. Noh’s team.
“The results were mindblowing,” said Charmaine White,
a graduate student involved in the
study. “For every single test we ran,
these girls remained physiologically
Pictured Above: Girls wait in line for a nightclub while remaining completely unaffected by temperatures of -17 degrees celcius.
unaffected by the cold temperatures.
Though they seemed generally
impatient and expressed a desire
to ‘do more shots’, there were no
noticeable effects beyond that.”
“Our first instinct was to assume
that these results had everything to
do with the demographic we were
working with, a genetic anomaly
specific to 18-25 year old females
or something like that,” Dr. Noh
remarked to the Toike. “However,
after performing the same tests on
various control groups, we were
forced to conclude that the attire
and attitude of the girls was the only
factor contributing to their inexplicable resistance to the cold.”
As the research team performed
further experiments, the importance of the subjects’ attitude in
particular became more evident, Dr.
Noh explained. “It wasn’t enough
to be dressed in clubbing clothes,
you also had to carry around a demeanor of youthful, intoxicated
indiscretion, a disregard for future
consequences, and a general lack of
‘fucks given,’” he elaborated.
After publishing his work, Dr.
Noh submitted a memorandum to
Canada’s Artic Exploration program suggesting that all researchers working in subzero conditions
be outfitted with a thong and a bottle of Jack as soon as possible, and
be given instructions to utter the
phrase “YOLO” at least once every
three minutes. The Russian government is rumored to have already
deployed packages of miniskirts
and eyeliner to its artic bases.
Dr. Noh also hopes to see some
positive social effects come about
thanks to his discovery, and is endorsing a program to provide low
cut tops and tequila shots to homeless people living in cold climates.
Even NASA appears to have
found use for the newly-discovered
properties, after the ISS sustained
damage to its MLI thermal insulation last week. According to reports
from the agency, astronauts on
emergency spacewalk managed to
fix the damage attaching a bra to the
exterior of the craft, placing a cute
tank top over it, and then removing
the bra.

Movie Review: Lawrence of Arabia
by Jake Shelton
Toike Oike Cinephile
tar Wars has never been an easy
series to match up to. Fans’ expectations of greatness always exceed
a filmmaker’s abilities. But Lawrence of
Arabia, David Lean’s not quite sequel to
the prequel trilogy, and not quite prequel
to the original trilogy might just do it.
While oddly named, Lawrence of Arabia certainly meets the bill for a great
space opera. The film sees a middle-aged
Obi-Wan (Ben) Kenobi on Tatooine following the Empire’s extermination of the
Jedi order. The story follows Ben as he
leads the native sandpeople in a revolt
against the Empire. The noble and honourable sandpeople fight for their freedom
against the evil and fascistic Empire in the
predictable, yet satisfying genre motif expected of Star Wars.
While philosophically simple, the film’s
spectacular action sequences, riveting dialogue, and classically outstanding acting
push it into excellence. The mature viewer
should note that Lawrence of Arabia’s
script and delivery is miles better than any
other film in the Star Wars anthology. The
actors seem to live their roles, with Kenobi
showing a more introspective, thoughtful
side of his character than the earlier films
However, a large issue present in the
film is in the character representation and
canon continuity. The special effects are
underwhelming in the degree fans and
critics have come to expect of Star Wars. It
seems that Obi Wan has decided to shelve
his recognizable lightsaber, and exchange
it for the more inconspicuous blaster rifle
and sword.
Fans will also be disappointed if they
expect much force play. While Obi Wan is
as stoic as ever, and the action sequences
truly are spectacular to watch, Lawrence
of Arabia contains few levitations, force
pushes, or force chokes, let alone any sort
of lightning. Studio representatives explain this as a budgetary issue, citing the
cost of those effects, as well as their plot
inconsistency. And yet, in Lawrence of
Arabia, Obi Wan’s monkish brown robes
are replaced by white silk with gold trim.
More noticeably though in terms of
continuity is the great change in the characters. The sandpeople from the original
Star Wars film, as well as the first episode
of the prequels, have changed drastically.
They have a distinctly epithetic resemblance to Arab peoples. While the studio
again claims it as a result of budgetary
constraints, similar to the portrayal of
Klingons in Star Trek TOS (comparably
epithetic towards East Asian individuals),
the question arises of how much burlap
sacks and surplus Soviet Bloc gas masks
cost. Not much. It makes one wonder,
critic and fan alike, whether the science
fiction industry, ‘big sci-fi’, is engaged in
a sort of racist conspiracy to make racist
caricatures as cheaply as possible, rather
than doing so by spending amounts similar to historical dramas and comedies.
This critic thinks so, and Hollywood will
have trouble proving me wrong.
To sum up, Lawrence of Arabia is a
wondrous film. Excellent as a standalone
picture in and of itself, it adds great
character development to the Star Wars
series as a whole, providing much needed
exposition to Ben Kenobi’s character.
While technically lacking, it nevertheless
delivers the Star Wars experience, and
that is all we can demand.
