Now, we don’t want to encourage you to procrastinate or anything (we take school very seriously here, duh) but we also know that sometimes what you really need during an intense study session is a quick break, to laugh a little, catch up on what’s trending and in the news, and recharge before you  sit down to write that 10 page essay. The College Mixer is our attempt at making things easier for you — here are today’s top links from around the web!

College is so expensive because schools want to make sure we are getting a quality education in modern facilities, right?  Or is it because the Presidents are making more money than I could ever dream of.  Do they deserve to make 3 million dollars a year?  You can be the judge.

Well, Nude photos of Dylan Sprouse exist now, and I’m not too sure how I feel about it.  His ex girlfriend tweeted out the noodz this weekend, and Sprouse actually handled it pretty well, making fun of himself and then simply moving on with his life.  At this point, I think it would be strange for a Disney child star to not have nude pictures, at least he didn’t announce a drug addiction.

“Home Alone” is John Hughes’ contribution to the world of Christmas movies, and it will forever go down in histoNury as one of the most epic holiday films ever.  If you’ve always been wondering which character from the film is your spirit animal, then you can check out this nifty little quiz.  I’ll warn you though, it’s probably going to say you are Fuller, or Buzz’s girlfriend.  Woof.

North Texas Deadly Wreck

Well, apparently “affluenza” is now a term you can use to blame inattentive parents who provide no rules and structure for their children when those kids grow up to not know how to follow any of society’s rules, like not drinking and driving. I wonder how successful this argument will be in upcoming lawsuits.  I think its just another excuse for rich kids to not have to follow the law.  #privilege.
