Tweetacular Tuesday: Fake Laughs, unfair rankings, and unfriendly reminders from the registrar
— GU Univ Registrar (@univregistrar) March 31, 2015
Aaaand to start us off on this sunny Tuesday, we have a friendly (read: abrasive) reminder from the University Registrar to complete pre-registration for the fall of 2015. Unfortunately, Vox can barely stop sneezing due to the abundance of pollen currently in the spring air, so she’ll pass for now.
I still don’t understand where to look when a waiter is telling me the specials.

Us too, Julius. Unless we’re snackin’ at the Bulldog Tavern, in which case we don’t even expect to be approached by a waiter for a minimum of 20 minutes.

No worries, Hoyas. When we saw this, we freaked out too. Luckily, it’s a joke – but that doesn’t mean that Vox isn’t salty.
You’re not fooling anyone with your fake laughter: “Scientists have described these play vocalizations as evolved” http://t.co/UQclCPrbew

In a study done in this article, people thought fake laughs were real “about a third of the time.” Good luck figuring out if your Leo’s date thinks you’re funny… or if those laughs you’re getting are just the result of mere vocal intonations.
