You were required to know ancient Greek and Latin to be admitted into Harvard and Yale in the early 1900s and prior. Obviously, such requirements were abolished some time ago. A Yale professor suggested that we're in a Dark Age of information and knowledge.

Everyone in this thread are making elitist insults, where what they say isn't really insulting because its a matter of opinion on subjects which no one knows anything about,lots of empty bravado.

No Ivy league is presitigious anymore. Absurd levels of grade inflation along with the vast majority of the students on campus being moronic legacy admits have tarnished their image beyons repair. That isn't to say that there doesn't exist exceptional students or groundbreaking research, just that on the whole, they're nowhere near what they used to be.

das where the homeless dude normally chills and spazes out.
greatly prefer the homeless dude outside harvard book store who is perpetually practicing rifts on his guitar. once saw him lay some mad game on a harvard undergrad in JP licks while waiting in line. first time i've ever seen a homeless bro get a chicks number. the staple personalities in harvard square are really distinct and actually kinda interesting people.

i'm there pretty much every morning, every afternoon, and every evening, at some point or another. nice way to break up the day and i go through roughly ~20-25 espresso shots in a day to counteract chemo.

yeah i dunno. espresso express in newton is currently repairing my machine so i'm stuck with them.
1369 is open again but it's sorta like...whatever. waiting for bloc in union square to reopen. loyal nine also makes mad good maple lattes but they are a much longer walk.
black sheep is good bagels but never liked their coffee. fromaggio on huron ave seems to have the best selection of espresso beans in the area for when you make your own. george howell--but far away in boston.

where do you all pick up from? always looking to expand.

>Why won’t rapture respond to my emails
he is applying 'Game' (which you will notice he references in this thread) by 'negging'.

alternatively, he is acting exactly like everyone said he would and screening out anyone whose disappearance would attract too much attention. I warned you he was looking for bleeders, not readers.

>> No.15679787


Lol that’s alistair, he’s actually a really cool dude. Sad story tho.

As for my coffee tastes, I just use tea. Much cheaper and more convenient, I ice it. But if I had to choose a place to stay caffeinated, I’d choose my kitchen’s nespresso lmao. I had a fellowship at a library once and they had one in the kitchen and it was like I discovered caffeination gold.

I can believe it, she seemed nice. Maybe at Ivies (+ Stanford and Chicago) more people are on /lit/ or the chans in general? I've occasionally seen people browsing other boards or chans but only knew one person who browsed /lit/ personally.

I'm within an hour's drive, I've been at my parents since MA got more stringent.
