Why does everybody have to rag on
University Town?
What is everyone's problem? Why don't all the students of UBC
embrace University Town? What a great opportunity! Finally there
will be enough jobs on campus so all those students that complain
about ridiculous tuition increases will be able to anti up the cash.
Some of you also complain about the impending loss of the grassy
knoll and the trees around the SUB. Who wants green space? It only
harbours the squirrels. Those bastard squirrels always climb in
through my window and eat my bananas. In conclusion, University
Town is good for all of us. More jobs and fewer squirrels, what could
be better?

St. Paddy's Day
Last Thursday was March 17th and, more importantly, Saint
Patrick's Day. Far too many students on campus were far too sober for
their own good that day. I saw no drunken stumbling to class, no
drunken stumbling between venues of alcohol consumption, and not
a single glass of green beer! What is our glorious University coming
to? As a student body, we need to step up to the challenge, and ensure
that next year such a travesty does not occur, especially as March 17,
2006 falls on a Friday! I call on the newly elected AMS to start preparations now. Money must be set aside for the purchase of Guinness
and green food colouring. Advertisement to adorn the SUB must be
planned and constructed well in advance so all students are aware of
the event. The road will be long and hard, but I know our current exec
is up to the challenge.

Down With Green Space
I am writing to express my disappointment at the lack of development in Stanley Park. A beautiful location, fantastic views, proximity
to EVERYTHING! What more could you ask for? The city of
Vancouver could make millions off of the sale of this beautiful park.
We could cure homelessness! Feed all the starving children! Be able
to afford the winter Olympics in 2010 (provided we have snow)! To
cut a long story short, more development of Vancouver's green spaces
are key to our success as a city.

l am Better Than You
In the last issue of The Far From Straight, "Lost in Louisiana"
made some of the stupidest comments I have ever read. You must
have a brain the size of a hydrogen atom, not even a deuterium atom,
a straight up, one neutron, one proton, one electron, hydrogen atom.
It pains me to know that there are such imbecilic organisms out there.
You and all your seed should be wiped from the face of the earth. If I
were god I would smite you. Your mother was a hamster and your
father smelt of elderberries!

stuff because we love free speech and freedom. If you don't love freedom, well, then you

Hello fellow students. So the
year is starting to wind down, and as
you are hopefully aware, the SUS
executive elections have just
wrapped up. This means that my
reign of Supreme Overloadship as
the Science Senator is coming to a
close. Who says I'm an overload?
Well, no one I suppose.... Anyway,
here's what has been happening in
the UBC Senate recently:
A lot of Senate's time has been
taken up discussing UBC:
Okanagan. In case you are unfamiliar, saying that you go to "UBC" will
be ambiguous come September. You
are    in    fact    attending    'UBC:
Vancouver'. UBC has opened a second campus in Kelowna, and will be
admitting students in September
2005. UBC: Vancouver's Senate is
trying to figure out its role in the
start up process at UBC: Okanagan
(referred to from here on as UBC:0)
<- interesting, looks like some kind
of emoticon.... UBGO will have its
own Senate that will have the identical composition as the UBC:V
Senate. Each faculty will have a student senator representative. There
will also be a committee that oversees both senates. UBC:V students
senators are currently working hard
to ensure students are on this committee as well.
Senate has also dealt with a new
generation of the Test of English as a
Foreign Language (TOEFL). This
will not affect current UBC (both
UBCs) students, but will have an
impact on new students applying for
UBC. All (foreign) UBC applicants
as of September 2005 will have to
take (and obtain a certain score) to
get into UBC. The TOEFL includes a
reading, listening, writing and
speaking section. This test has been
one of three English competency
tests that could have been taken for
UBC admission. It will now be the
only accepted examination for
admission. Student senators were
pleased that UBC is taking not only
English proficiency, but English
speaking abilities into consideration
for admission; after all, students
need be able to converse with one
More good news in regards to
student power on senate! Gina Eom,
a UBGV science student who is a
student senator "at large" has been
pushing for library hour extensions
during exam time. Just last week, the
student senators were informed that
the funding required for this project
has been granted. Both Koerner and
Woodward library will be opened
for longer periods of time during
exam periods. This is an (amazing?)
example of student voices having an
impact on the lives of other students.
It was felt that extended library
hours would be useful to students;
student constituencies (including
SUS) supported this initiative, and
now, with enough perseverance, it
will happen.
Well, if you are still reading, I
condemn y...no wait, commend...ya
that's it... I commend you. You made
it through 3 "paragraphs" of politically driven banter. Cool. Hope
you've learned something, and
maybe found it useful. I think the
last point is especially noteworthy.
I'm always slightly surprised when a
student motivated idea is put into
action.... Good luck to all of the new
SUS executives, and thanks to all
who cared enough (and remembered) to vote... Congrats to our
soon to be (critically?) acclaimed
(check the other definition) SUS
President. Keep reading the 432,
maybe some other exec has a report
that comes close to being as good (or
as long) as mine. Ciao!

Looking for a volunteer
opportunity related to
Science & Technology
this summer? Look no
The Canada-Wide Science
Fair (CWSF) is being held
at UBC for 2005 and is
looking for dedicated and
enthusiastic volunteers,
The Canada-Wide Science Fair is the largest extracurricular youth activity related to science and technology in
Canada, gathering our best young minds together. From May
15-22, 2005, approximately 475 young scientists will be chosen
to compete from the ranks of some 25 000 competitors at nearly
one hundred regional science and technology fairs staged
across the country. These young scientists will then converge
on UBC for the 2005 CWSF.
To host these young scientists and their accompanying
delegates we need to build a team of dedicated volunteers.
Areas seeking volunteers include Special Events, Hospitality,
Office/Registration, and more! Volunteers must be at least 15
years of age and be able to dedicate a minimum of 10 hours
throughout the week-long event.
To learn more about the CWSF and/or to

Rising Star. Six year old
Naomi Heeds is an artistic prodigy.
This week will see her major
breakthrough in to the spotlight
with her exhibition at the
Vancouver Art Gallery. Raw emotion is expressed in every crayon
stroke that graces the framed
colouring book pages of her
exhibit. In the exhibition, titled "I
Draw Outside the Lines" the artist
makes a point of rashly rubbing
her crayon across the page with
no regard for the stagnant restrictions of society No line can prevent her stroke. Her colours will
not be contained by darkness!
Heeds takes the template of
masters such as "Sesame Street,"
"Barbie," and "The Little Mermaid,"
elaborating on the old concepts
and taking them farther then they
have ever gone before. Not limited by blue oceans or cream skin
tones, the concept of race is
explored in every work. One
notable piece, entitled "Bird,"
depicts Sesame Street's Big Bird
with a rainbow of colours emanating from him in all directions. Not
even the standard of ROYCBIV was
conformed to by the artist. The
work transcends the norms of the
genre and displays, with joy and
rapture, the inner (and outer)
child of the artist.
In contrast to the vibrancy of
the aforementioned work, there a
few dark pieces that stand out in
the exhibit. "Abyss" overlays a
page from "Barbie" with thick dark
smears of disfiguring finger-paint.
Obviously Heeds is demonstrating
her distaste for the gender roles
explicit in the popular doll. The
heightened awareness of such
issues comes from a deep seated
anger in the artist at being given
an "Easy-bake" oven for her last
birthday instead of the "Tonka"
dump-truck she really wanted.
Some critics have questioned
the validity of the scrawlings of
the budding artist. Juan Del
Rocco, art critic for the New York
Times, was quoted as saying that
"any six year old could create this
garbage, hell, if you tied a crayon
to my dog's foot and had him walk
across the page a few times, you
would get almost identical
pieces." Clearly he is missing the
finer details of the pieces; the
expression of frustration of cultural norms and social inequalities.
Sports Reports
Screech! Wow, what a ride! The past year as Director
of Sports on SUS has been awesome. I've had the opportunity to work with an amazing group of execs and I'm
thrilled at how we came together and brought SUS to a
whole new level. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication =). I really think we did great things and I had a
ton of fun doing it with you all. To my sports committee,
what can I say. ..we did some crazy stuff: from designing
our "Science Athletics" shirts to running a sweet Science
Olympics to taking Winterfest 2005 by storm. To the SUS
council, you guys were fabulous... I loved the spirit and
enthusiasm each of you brought to SUS.... The memories: Whistler retreat, Ethanol, Science Week, Cold
Fusion, Amazing Maze, Longboat, Gladiator, Globefest,

memorable. PS. Lets kick some butt by storming that

4 THE FAR FRDM STRAIGHT   MARCH  29 - APRIL B,  2DD5 Umbrellas and Bicycles:
A Deadly Combination-
If you were to move to a very cold climate,
what is the first thing you would do? Buy a
good winter jacket? That sounds like a
sound plan to me. So why is it that so many people
living in Vancouver, where it is chronically raining,
never get themselves a good rain jacket? Instead,
they end up buying countless umbrellas, which
shortly end up blown inside out, and get in the way
of all the intelligent people on campus, who have
invested in some water-proof gear. Then there are
the ones who really lack intelligence, and insist on
riding a bicycle while holding an umbrella. A
tragedy is inevitable, and not usually for the
umbrella- holding bicyclist.
A fateful stormy afternoon, I was cycling along
Main Mall, to see an umbrella bicyclist (or UBC as
they will henceforth be referred to) ahead of me.
The UBC was traveling rather slowly, and I was in
a rush to get to class on a bicycle of my own.
Through a combination of rain and umbrella, my
visibility was greatly reduced, but upon catching up
to the UBC I proceeded to pass. As I passed the
umbrella, I look up to see another cyclist heading
straight for me! Avoidance maneuvers were impossible due to high speeds and short distances, and
the clash that ensued followed the law of conserva
tion of momentum.
We collided head on, literally. He, being heavier
but slower, and I, being lighter yet faster, had equal
momentum, and as soon as we hit we promptly
dropped to the ground. We picked ourselves up,
holding our banged up faces, and assessed the
damage. My forks were bent so the front wheel was
rubbing the frame, he was holding his nose, and my
forehead was swelling up to "the size of Texas" (as
my roommate proudly likes to proclaim).
Deciding that nothing was critically injured my
partner in collision went to his class, and I, concussed and giggling hysterically, went home. No
real damage was done, but the possibility was there,
and this should be a lesson to all umbrella users.
Not only are you a danger to cyclists, you are also a
danger to pedestrians. Can you count the number
or times you have almost had an eye taken out by
an umbrella? I sure can't.
Since the accident just before Thanksgiving in
October, I have been wondering how the other victim fared. I was certainly more injured than my
shocked and rattled brain realized, and I would like
to know that you are alright as well. If you read this,
please respond to the432@gmail.com and let me
know if you hurt as much as I did the next day.
Glitter, lace and beads
aren't just for kindergarten crafts, doilies or Mardi Cras
flashers anymore. One trend that has taken off this
spring with the self-important crowd features ornate
vintage pieces that have been Bedazzled by sugar-high
tweens in second-world countries. Ethel's Boutique
(3753 West 4th Avenue) carries a hoop skirt that could
be straight out of a glam square-dancer's closet.
Nevermind that you can't sit down without flashing
your admirers; grab a sunbonnet with ribbons and a
lambskin clutch, and wander the streets like a rock'n'roll
Little Bo Peep looking for her sheep. The skirt comes in
lemon, cream, mint and blueberry, because the designer was dieting when she selected the fabrics. You also
get your choice of brass studs or silver sequins or both!.

Conspiracy Afoot Amongst Sea-
Dwelling Race of Super Creatures
Over the last few
weeks, there has been
considerable overlap
in several of my courses. The
good news about this is that
there is less material per class
to learn, and if one of your
profs sucks at teaching it, at
least you have a chance of
another prof teaching it in an
understandable way. The
material that has been
repeated is all about phyto-
plankton, and it has led me to
devise a theory:
Phytoplankton hold all of
our lives in their tiny little
intracellular spaces. It's a
really good thing the little
bastards don't have any idea
of what is going on around
them, because if I were a
phytoplankton, I would tell
us all to go fuck ourselves
and then annihilate everyone.
I am sure that you are
thinking that I have come
down with global warming
hysteria, or maybe you have
absolutely no idea as to what
I am talking about. It basically boils down to the fact that
it doesn't really matter how
much C02 we put into that
atmosphere, because no one
seems to understand the big
picture. We will be fucked
long before it gets too hot
from the Greenhouse effect.
It might not even get hot at
all. Warm enough to melt the
ice caps, but then the ocean
circulation will change, and
Europe will freeze, then the
Americans will invade
Canada because all of their
low lying cities will be
swamped with water. That
water isn't all from the ice
caps melting by the way, as
most people seem to assume.
Water gains volume when it
gets warmer, so really the
thermal expansion of the
water that we already have in
the ocean that will screw us
all over.
But that goes back to the
phytoplankton, because if the
little bastards worked harder,
there wouldn't be any excess
C02 to warm the Earth up
enough to melt the ice caps
in the first place.
Then there are all these
crazy people that think it
would be a good idea to
sequester the excess C02 in
old oilfields, or in underground caves. Or even
liquifying or solidifying it
and sending it to the bottom
of the ocean. Now it doesn't
take a genius to figure out
that a well-timed earthquake
would be a large pain in the
ass in situations like those.
Oh  sure, they can  look for
seismically stable area, but
like one country wants to be
the dumping ground for all
of the worlds excess C02
when the right disturbance
could kill all the animals that
were living in the water, if
that is where the C02 was
stored. Hello terrorist magnet. Can't really expect the
phytoplankton to save us
from that.
If I were a phytoplankton,
I would plot against humans.
Really, what have we done for
anything else living on this
planet? Not a hell of a lot. So
I would grow and divide, and
spread my sinister plot
against humans, and make
sure every other phytoplankton knew. And when the time
was right, I would rise up and
grab the human race by the
balls and threaten them with
everything that I got. (Which
isn't much, I am a single cell
after all) But at least in my
death, I could kill them all
too. So be careful the next
time you are out on the
ocean, you never know when
a psycho phytoplankton is
going to reach up and get

Prime Minister's Penis Far From Straight, Ms. Martin Accuses
In shocking news earlier this week,
Paul Martins penis is not straight.
This information was forthcoming
from Martins wife, who solemnly stated
that when they're in bed, it is obvious that
Martins sexual organ bends to the left in
such a manner that making love is
"painful and awkward."
The prime ministers wife reported
that this has been a concern for some
time, and that she has been urging her
husband to seek help. This information
had been kept secret between the two of
them until now. By going public, she
hopes her husband will finally be motivated to do something about this embarrassing and slightly humourous disorder,
since he is surely destined to be hounded
and mocked by the press every day until
he fixes it.
But is fixing it going to be easy?
Dr. Phil had this to say regarding the
situation: "Ah don't know what a prime
minster is, but ah sure know that ah
wouldn't wanna have no bent pee-nis!
Due to Dr. Phil's incoherent southern
banter, we decided to talk to a real doctor.
Dr. David Hawkins in Ottawa commented
on Martin's condition: "This is a first for
all of us. Neither I nor any of my colleagues have ever heard of anything like
this. Fixing it may not be too difficult, but
it depends on the severity of the curvature. The bigger problem - no pun intended - may be finding a physician who is
willing to fix it. I know I'm not touching a
politician's dick. Do you have any idea
how many people want something from
him? Do you know what the odds of his
being STD-free are? Puny, that's what.
Paul Martin vehemently denies
the non-linearity of his phallus.
Most STDs are transmittable orally. Hell,
from what I've heard his wife never needs
to bring lipstick when they go travelling -
she just wipes her mouth on his ass."
Because Martin's condition is the first
of its kind, it does not yet have an official
name. Liberals have been quick to name it
as "Penis Abnormality Syndrome."
Conservatives, on the other hand, have
dubbed it "Paul's Bent Dick Syndrome."
Only time will determine which name
wins out over the other.
Paul Martin has been unavailable for
comment since his wife's press release, but
one thing is likely: the mystery as to why a
Catholic would push for gay marriage has
been solved. It is apparent that sexual
intercourse with a woman has become so
painful for our prime minister that he
desires to satisfy himself elsewhere.
The Roto-Router franchise that birefly
employed Mr. Martin in his youth
declined to comment, saying that "however he cleans his pipes is fine by us.
Flexibility should be appreciated."
6 THE FAR FRDM STRAIGHT   MARCH  29 - APRIL B,  2DD5 straight     Savage Meat-Beating
am the only executive to
send a report each time, I think its time I give one out
of the norm. I mean, you know this year's executive is
great and all, but who really cares. What you really
wanted to know was the dirt. Now, I can't tell you the
specifics of any of the comments I make, but you can
always do a little more sleuthing if you really cared.
This year has been full of surprises and I have
heard/seen many interesting things. Did you know that
an executive was seen holding a dildo in her house? She
claims it wasn't hers and she found it on top of the
fridge. I mean, a lot of people leave their dildos on top
of the fridge before they leave, right? Another exec, I
can't say who, once made a startling confession. At a
dinner with the Dean of The Faculty of Science, this person (it's a she) stammered "I like head!." This next one is
interesting. I knew this person was messed up...but not
this messed up. One of the individuals on our team has
a fetish for playing with puppets in the closet...need I
say more? There was even a little bit of chemistry going
on between a couple execs late last term. Last but not
least, this unidentified executive was seen posing for
cameras in hopes of fame and fortune. I really hope it
turn out well for him in the future.
Wow...I think this was my most informative exec
report yet! Have a good summer everyone! y

real emotional issues who need to know if they
should tell both of their boyfriends that they're into
sheep scat aren't having their questions answered
because you thought that your petty little problem
was of note! Write back when you have something
deep and meaningful to contribute.
I need some advice, ive been sleep
ing with my boyfriend for almost a week now. The
sex has been great, but he keeps asking me to untie
him. I'm afraid that if I let him go, he'll never come
back. It's been a great week though, and I'd like to
think that the loss of feeling in his hands and feet
isn't really that bad a price to pay. I feed and clean
him well. What should I do?
> Beartraps Are Basically Sexy
BABS, you've got a guy you like. Most of your
friends will probably be whining about basic
human rights and other drivel. Don't do what they
say, be true to your heart. Your heart says he's the
person for you, so he obviously is. Let him go at
your own peril - you might never see him again, or
worse yet you might only see him in court.
I posted an ad recently online,
following your advice (when you said that there's
someone interested in everything, and that they're
all on the internet). The problem is that nobody has
written back. I admit, my fetish is a little different -
I like covering my body in honey, rolling in oats,
and then jacking off while drinking the semen
from my lover having freshly fucked a dog - can

I appreciate that you've gathered most of your

Condos to Replace SUB Ballroom
at UBC by 2005-06 School Year
Tired of dealing with raucous students, who are
getting drunk at Bzzr gardens instead of spending their
hard earned money at the Pit, the
AMS has decided to increase
revenue by replacing the SUB
ballroom with a high priced condominium. This move will force
students away from venues of
cheaper alcohol and into such
establishments as the Pit and the
gallery, venues which also profit
the AMS.
New AMS President Spencer
Keys is keen on the idea. Not
only will he now be able to afford
to poster his entire office in
midget pornography (instead of
just one wall, as is currently the
case), he will also be able to
implement a 100% pay increase
for all of the AMS executive. "I
know I promised to do all those
great things to reduce the impact
of University Town for students,
but now that I've gotten a taste of
power there is no way I'm going
to follow through on all those
bogus promises," said Keys.
He was also heard to mutter
as the interview ended and he
walked away "it took me three
years to finally get elected, I didn't go to all this work for nothing."
The other execs, alone and
shivering in the prison devised
for them by the AMS Business
Office, declined to comment for
fear of retribution.
Martha Piper, set on making
the beautiful UBC campus less
beautiful and less student orientated, fully endorses the idea.
The condos will be prohibitively expensive for all but the
lucky few students whose par
ents already have a cottage, a
summer cottage, a ski cottage,
and now desire a university cottage. In addition to the initial sale
of the units, a levy charged to
condo owners every year will
pad the university coffers.
"It's a win-win situation for
everyone involved," stated Piper.
Rumour has it she has
already made a down payment
on the penthouse suite as a 50th
birthday present for Bort. "Bort
is getting close to retirement age
now, and he needs somewhere he
can relax and put his feet up," she
As usual, students did not
hear about the construction
plans until the consultation
process was completed. The
protests of the student body has
once again fallen on deaf ears,
and renovations are slated to
begin once classes finish in May.

Keeping the Blue Dress Clean.
Following the trend of public figures every where, Bill Clinton has
published a new book titled, "How
to Abuse Power to Get Sex And
Then Get Away With it," Claiming
to be similar to a twelve step
Alcoholics Anonymous program,
Clinton outlines exactly how to
satisfy your cravings for sex and
power, all at the same time.
Skeptical that this is just a last
feeble attempt to hold on to some
of the public limelight at a time
when his wife is dominating him in
the media as well as in the bedroom, this reviewer took the time
to read the book and try to put
these steps into practice.
The first chapter of "How to
Abuse Power to Get Sex And Then
Get Away With it," deals with the
importance of knowing the whole
book off by heart before any
attempts at domination are
begun. This makes for somewhat
dry reading, but the ambitious
reader perseveres, believing as
the rewards at the end will be
This is the first mistake of the
Once one gets past the introduction, and is now concentrating
harder than the budding erection
that is forming in anticipation of
the expected rewards; the meatiest part of story begins. The hype
this book has caused has the reader expecting huge things; howev
er, coming from an old, white,
straight politician, is it really surprising that these hopes are
dashed against the rocks like the
dreams of a fifteen year old boy
who thinks he is about to get laid
for the first time?
Instead of delivering the promised roadmap to political and sexual domination, Clinton only
digress' into stones of indiscretion. How the incriminating stones
of the mysterious disappearance
of various "love interests" ever
went undetected by the popular
media and the courts is a mystery
in and of itself. One chapter parallels the infamous Monica Lewinsky
trials, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, I did not
strangle that woman, and I certainly did not dispose of her body
in a vat of concentrated
hydrochloric acid at a secret CIA
facility precisely 71.4 miles outside of the Washington city limits,"
writes Clinton.
"I used to be very conservative,
sexually," he explained in Chapter
7, "but then I realized that I could
be the biggest exhibitionist the
world has ever known! Rasputin
and Chamberlain haven't got anything on me. My semen has been
shown on prime-time TV from
coast to coast!"
In short, this book is just another example of a politician whoring
themselves in a last attempt at
