Uber Competitor Comes to Philly

Another day, another service that will bring us one step closer to making moving our limbs utterly obsolete. 

Lyft, a ride-sharing service that competes with Uber, has announced that it will be coming to Philadelphia this Friday. While we were pretty content with Uber-ing around town, Lyft gets a few points for in their announcement shouting out to the possibly fictional "Renee, a grad student at the University of Pennsylvania" as one of their exemplary friendly drivers.

Additionally, Lyft drivers will adorn their cars with "Glowstaches," aka giant pink pornstaches akin to your grandma's seasonal reindoor car antlers.

Uber To Surge Price Your Wallet To Charity – Maybe that snowstorm we didn't get will come some other time, but who really knows for sure. To avoid the gross mess in the future, Uber to class where luckily prices will be capped at only (!!!) 2.9x the normal rate! All surge pricing proceeds go to Red Cross relief so you'll be giving back while keeping your Goyard tote safe.

Fisher Bennett Gets A Little Raunchier

William Shakespeare, James Joyce, Joseph Heller and Maxim Magazine. What do these fine works of literature have in common? They were all present in the illustrious halls of Fisher Bennett yesterday afternoon. Students walking in through the main entrance could learn about how to "snag an invite" to the increasingly popular "Sex Party" and take a gander at the "pretty little thing between the sheets." It seems that sometimes you just have to spice up the front desk with something other than a DP.

This Just In: Penn Kids Would Like a Snow Day

Though the chances of our snow day actually happening tomorrow are sadly plummeting, the thought of a Tuesday designated for drinking and snuggling still lives on in our hearts like an eternal flame. We can't be sure about tomorrow, but the good news for now is that there's finally a designated (and copyrighted?) website to reflect our snow day predictions. Leave it to Penn kids to spend actual time designing this voting mechanism and tastefully plotted graph – complete with adorable snow imagery!

Say what you will about our wintertime cynicism, this graph proves that hope still lives among us. The curve hasn't yet dipped below a 30% chance of a day off! Though this site won't do much to change Her Highness Gutmann's decision, it's nice to feel as though we're all in this long, cold night of procrastination together. Be sure to hit up I Want A Snow Day @ Penn and let your precipitation-related voice be heard!

Now Accepting Applications For A More Exclusive Tinder

Stanford grad Amanda Bradford has come up with a new dating service called The League, a more selective (read: elitist) version of the Tindz that requires people to apply and be approved by an algorithm before they can get it on. This algorithm only judges the really important things, like whether you graduated from a top school, if your interests include sushi and snowboarding, and whether you enjoy overpriced home goods.

Honestly they've really hit the nail on the head here. After all, what do Ivy League millennials love more than online dating, job applications, and complex mathematical algorithms? But it’s okay, Amanda Bradford. We’re guessing you were probably just upset after some Tinder match from Palo Alto University stood you up. Necessity really is the mother of invention.

Ware Resident Lashes Out Against Bathroom Bandits

Apparently ignorance isn't bliss, "bitches." It's all fun and games when Quad freshmen leave their laundry to rot, but when they don't practice proper shower curtain etiquette, shit gets real. Clearly, this angry Ware resident doesn't like writing seminar as much as they "like to take a shower," because these comma splices just aren't very Ivy.
