Response to Which Ivy League School Should You Attend?:
Your innate artsiness and love of tradition make you a perfect Eli. Yale will indulge whatever your whim might be: a starring role in a Shakespeare play, an internship at the White House, a chance to hobnob with A-list celebrities at a master’s tea. Just brace yourself for New Haven’s less-than-stellar reputation and cold winters, and you’ll be sporting Old Blue in no time. Harvard:
Your raw ambition makes you a perfect candidate to study at a college “outside Boston.” Whether you want to graduate summa cum laude in economics, a future seat in the cabinet or “just” to go to law school, crimson is your color. You’re going to rule the world someday and you know it — get ready! Brown:
Whether you want to legalize pot or anarchy, welcome to Brown, where you’ll feel right at home shedding labels and the stench of capitalism. Your free spirit self will be happy to kiss declaring a major goodbye, and your creative strengths will be nurtured in a community of likeminded artists. Brace yourself for gray Providence skies and open yourself to a whole bunch of new vibes. Cornell:
Whether you want to be a doctor, an engineer or just bury yourself in books during a blizzard, Cornell’s your spot. You’re less famous than most of the Ivies, but that doesn’t mean you won’t work just as hard as those annoying Cantabs. Join a frat if you want to party, because you’ll definitely need to blow off some steam during those frigid winter months. But still, Ithaca is gorges. Columbia:
You’re head uptown to go to school in the bustling Big Apple. Studying in the heart of New York City is perfect for your adventurous spirit and your multi-faceted creativity. Because you’re an individualist, you’ll love Columbia’s broad range of students from all of the world and opportunities to intern at some internationally-important companies. Just remember to bring an all-black wardrobe, some American spirits and an open mind. Dartmouth:
Welcome to New Hampshire! Your love of the outdoors and individualistic spirit will feel right at home in Hanover, where you can study hard and drink. And drink hard. And study. But you’ll pursue that econ or lit degree fiercely with your appetite for creative success, and you’ll end up, well, wherever you want to end up. Bring: a whole fleet of North Face. Princeton:
Grab your sailboat manual and shine your loafers, because Princeton, here you come. Whether you’re in search of sport or just a fancy way to have dinner, you’ll find it, yes, in the heart of New Jersey. But while you’ll definitely enjoy yourself, you’re too type-A to let your econ or science grades slide. As a Tiger, you’ll work hard and play hard — all while keeping your Vineyard Vines spotless. Penn:
Your outgoing personality and superb critical thinking skills make you a perfect match for the University of Pennsylvania. Less pretentious than some of the other schools, Penn will give you the education you’re worthy of without forcing you to summer in the Hamptons mansion of your roommate named Muffy. You can do world-class research at Penn, so take advantage, and if you have time, play a sport or two.
Response to Which Batman Villain Are You?:
You got: Ra’s al Ghul. You’re a master of strategy, and are always working towards big-picture goals. You’re utterly ruthless in the pursuit of what you want, and have a major superiority complex. Dead right.
Response to Which "Sherlock" Character Are You?:
Was expecting Lestrade or Mycroft, so not surprised. (Guess I’m not devious enough to run the British government.) Why haven’t there been any Watsons?
Here’s how Ricky and Ollie met 10 years ago …
Hmm, I don’t think those sources say quite what the author is claiming they say. For example, the witch source states that while Elizabeth I passed a new and harsher witchcraft law in 1562, it definitely does not claim that was the year witchcraft became illegal in England. Furthermore, it also points out that Elizabeth I was more lenient towards witchcraft than her counterparts in France and Spain. Moving on, the makeup source appears to indicate the exact opposite of the author’s claim. Elizabethan women who could afford it wore lots of white, poisonous lead-based makeup to achieve a pale completion. Side note, I think this was particularly in following the style of the queen herself, who coated her face in the white stuff and wore red wigs (yup, the end of Blanchett’s “Elizabeth” got the appearance right). I have read more on the Tudor Era (btw not part of Medieval Period), than the earlier histories of England, so I will keep my commentary to that above. However, it appears that a bit more research and reading should have gone into this article, even for Buzzfeed.
