Difference between Flack and Flak.

What a role reversal! Typically I get the email from a Nigerian Prince offering to give me money. In this case our Nigerian Prince is taking the money.

My favorite part about this article is the sub header and the lower image. "Alternatives to the Thanksgiving Turkey" and the cat image. Gives an interesting impression if you're scrolling fast.

"I'm surprised nobody has blamed this on Flotopia."

Best comment I've ever read on the indy. Please though, it's FloAtopia and should be followed by RIP.

It's Chilla Vista, not Chula Vista. The latter is held in SD.

Everyone knows that a Gaucho is an Armenian poker player.

On The Men Behind the Myths

Just to back up Pardall solely on the cleanup, (I don't know anything about IV cash ins and outs) ITK did some poor research on the clean up set for May 10th. That date is set because Floatopia 2 is going to be the previous day. It would be completely silly to have a clean up intended for last weeks Floatopia that far away. I'm not sure how you missed this, but once again, it highlights people's inability to use and understand facebook.

Friends, It's already been done. Nearly 500 confirmed and this is an unorganized, unsponsored event.

InTheKnow: This is unrelated to the independent but I saw this comment posted on this Daily Nexus article that might answer one of your questions:

"The top photo doesn't fit the caption, at all.

Take a look at the picture: People enjoying the beach, clean sand and a handful of guys hauling away a homemade float.

It definitely is not this: ':locals look through the massive amount of debris left on the beach in the days following Floatopia'...."

I believe this is an example that you were looking for.

Mesamike: It is very obvious you don't know much about facebook or how it works. Creating an event is as easy as 1, 2, 3. From there it is all viral and "invites" can be sent by anyone. There is no way the Excursions Club knows and invited 12,000 people. As much as this reporter and yourself keep trying, there is nobody to point a finger at but the students themselves. We would all like a scapegoat, but a most likely broke college club isn't it. If that's all it takes, then who's responsible for the girl who got a black eye at the DP Pillow Fight that was organized on facebook? Certainly not the admins of that event. Yes, this is a small example compared to Floatopia, but I feel I have to break it down to show the relevance. Sadly, I have a feeling that this club is going to end up taking responsibility for 12,000 people at this annual event because somebody high up doesn't understand how facebook works.
