If you were going to commit a crime, which one would it be and how would you justify it to the public? (if you get caught) Bonus question: Capybaras—yay or nay? The final two. Crunch time. It’s Marc versus Dean. Dean versus Marc. Will the psychological defeat the legal? Or will it be the other […]

Out of flight, invisibility and telepathy, what super power would you have and what crimes would you solve with it? Woah. This shit just got real. We were inundated with votes on Thursday and all bets were off—we didn’t know who was going to be voted off until the 5pm cut off. We were all […]

At 5pm Thursday we had two lecturers tied at the bottom—Chris Eichbaum and Matthew Trundle—after a frantic last hour of voting. What to do? ELIMINATION! ELIMINATION! DOUBLE ELIMINATION! In the first week back from break we’ll be […]

This week’s task: Write an acrostic poem using your name that explains why students should study your subject Week four. The competition is heating up. Only two votes separated the bottom two. The weakest link this time around: Justin Bachoff, everyone’s favourite lecturer of Modern Mythology. Clearly not quite favourite enough. Goodbye. Admittedly we felt […]

That’s right, another week of reality journalism. Will you get sick of this? We sure hope not. David O’Donnell took a commanding lead in voting last week, no doubt thanks to a sterling campaign initiated by the Theatre department. We hear there are even posters. Good work team! P.S.
