Cracked Round-Up: 3 Tips for Incoming Freshmen Edition

Cracked Round-Up: 3 Tips for Incoming Freshmen Edition

It's that time of year once again, when the scorching heat gives way to slightly-less-scorching heat and all the schools open their doors once more. For many of you reading this, fall will bring your first semester of college. And, as we do every year, Cracked has some helpful advice for making the most of it.

1. Treat Intoxication Like A Class. No, we don't mean you should spend an hour getting hammered for every hour spent studying. We mean you need to study your mind-altering substances before you consume them. Bone up on drinking myths and never put anything into your body unless you research it first.

2. Mix Instant Coffee And Instant Ramen for a quick burst of energy, a full belly and the absolute most disgusting vomit the human body is capable of producing. Now that you're 18, you only have a few years in which to pound your body full of toxic crap without noticing the consequences. Make the most of that.

3. 90% Of College Is Just Showing Up. Seriously. It's actually kind of terrifying and hugely disheartening to the people who care about education, but you're way more than halfway there if you just get to class on time every day.

It's always nice to start your week by blasting some misconceptions. Gladstone fulfills that role this week with songs the Internet thinks are by the wrong artist. Ian Fortey followed up with a look at the useless motivational tactics your employer makes you sit through. Soren Bowie introduced our readers to two more infuriating young celebrities while Dan O'Brien discussed the things he wishes he'd known as an awkward high schooler. Luke McKinney listed the most badass spaceship landings in human history as Bucholz gave some movies that actually deserve a Total Recall style remake. John Cheese explained how the internet convinced him not to vote and Brockway closed us out with the tropes Sci-Fi needs to bring back.
