There's never a dull moment reading through the Flyby Tip Box submissions. From entries that really should have remained between the curious searcher and his/her own hand (see Sept. 10) to unsolicited statements about movies and food stuffs (see Oct. 6 and Oct. 16), the mistaken searches and comments submitted through the Tip Box are always a riot to read, if not one of my finest daily pleasures. Below, a selection from September and October.
To add to all of that, according to Apple Maps, the Harvard Lampoon, a semi-secret Sorrento Square social organization that used to occasionally publish a so-called humor magazine, is now located at the Harvard Business School. To members of the Lampoon: it looks like the prank's on you.
It's been a long time since the last "From the Tip Box" post, which means that we have a number of months to look back on. April and May saw multiple mentions of FM's annual Fifteen Hottest (Hairiest?) Freshmen edition as well as allusions to a variety of animals. June seems to have had a culinary focus (perhaps a result of students missing HUDS?) while July brought in, almost exclusively, mentions of sex in its many different forms. September, and thus the beginning of school, seems to have transitioned our readers' attention to more current and pressing events. As always, below you'll find a hilarious mixture of innocent search queries, serious tips, and Flyby-directed comments.
Still on campus and looking for something to do? Radio 92.9's annual EarthFest concert is happening today at the Hatch Shell in Boston, beginning at 11:00 a.m. This year's performers include Eve 6, Switchfoot, Spin Doctors, and Third Eye Blind. Beyond providing music to the public, the concert seeks to promote an understanding of the environmental problems facing our planet. As a result, you'll learn a lot about green causes and be privy to a plethera of delicious (and probably all-natural) food samples from green-minded companies. Oh, and the concert is entirely free. So if you're craving some hummus, good music, and a day out in the sun, grab your friends and consider heading over to Boston for the afternoon.
