The stupidest, most shocking, most grossly offensive (i.e. silly, deceptive, racist, sexist, ominous, creepy, scary, and in some cases, unintelligible) statements Donald Trump has made (so far).

I started collecting Donald Trump quotes a few years ago, when it first became clear that the man's IQ was remarkably lower than anyone expected. The statements he made were shocking, hurtful, bizarre, scary, disgusting, creepy, and in many cases, completely unintelligible - the complete opposite of what you'd expect from a US President. So here they are - my collection of President Donald J. Trump quotes. I'll continue to add to them as long as he keeps opening his mouth.

NYU students discover open listserver for 40,000 students and faculty. Let the fun begin…

As NYU explained: “NYU uses something called E-Mail Direct for most mass emails. That system is meant for one-way emailing. E-Mail Direct does not allow for reply-alls, therefore you cannot respond to most mass emails. Several NYU departments still rely on the older, discussion-based ListManager program, however. ListManager also sends mass emails, but allows discussions (in the form of reply-alls), unless the settings are adjusted, disabling group discussions and only permitting emails from admins.” And yeah, someone sent an email using the old ListManager and exposed all 40,000 email addresses of NYU students and faculty. Once the students recognized their newfound powers, the fun began.

The funniest tweets from last night’s presidential debate

Obama triggered listeners' funny bone last night with this quip responding to a criticism from Romney about the size of the U.S. Navy, Obama said: "You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military's changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them.” Twitterers followed up with gags of their own. Here’s a collection of the funniest tweets during last night’s presidential debate.

Infamous MIT Hacks (Pranks) and their influence on hacker ethic

MIT pranks, or “hacks” as they are known in MIT lore, showcase MIT students’ scientific knowledge, mechanical engineering skills, anti-authoritarian whimsy, and geeky sense of humor. The tradition dates back to the 1870’s when students sprinkled iodide of nitrogen over the grounds of a military drill field causing mini explosions when fellow classmates conducted their marching drills. While other “better” educational institutions such has Harvard and Yale, went to great lengths to capture and punish pranksters, MIT authorities never made the mistake of regarding a prank as a crime and instead viewed them as an extension of the students’ curiosity, the true motivator in the quest for greater knowledge.
