    I use, “you should clone yourself…so you can go fuck yourself,” about as much as any other phrase. In all seriousness, this video is a much watch for Arnold fans:

  2. Get down?
    I think that’s the only Arnold line I know….I find it useful in a variety of situations.

  3. Gsim says:

    Gawd. Kids these days, they can name 300 different pokemon but don’t know shit about Conan, Terminator II or Predator.

    Brush up on your Arnold lore. You’ll need it to survive the coming apocalypse.

    /fuck you Steve. I don’t have issues. I know the riddle of steel.

    ///Come with me if you want to live.

    Hello staff bonding night.

  5. Steve Toyota says:

    Eh, just goes to show how culturally out of it I am. That’s what happens when you drink too much.

  6. @CJ You find the most interesting crap.

  7. CJ says:

    I LOLed at Gsim’s comment. You guys obviously have not watched Conan the Barbarian enough times:

  8. Steve Toyota says:

    Gsim’s got some seriously issues. I hope he gets them treated before he harms himself.

  9. Prozac anyone?
    I think someone didn’t watch enough care bears growing up. You might want to catch up:

  10. Gsim says:

    Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember why we fought, or why we died. All that matter is that Miles stays in his fucking parent’s basement and never returns to the UO. That’s what’s important! Valor pleases you, Crom… grant me my request! To crush Miles, see him driven before me and hear the lamentations of his anime blow up dolls.

    And if you do not listen then to HELL with you!

    Seriously Miles, fuck off… just fuck off.

  11. Michael G. says:

    Clearly from my own link I can say it was last year. That’s what I get for not proofreading.

  12. Michael G. says:

    It came about last year (or was it the year before) when the Commentator had an ASUO slogan contest.

    Ass Shit University of Oranges got an honorable mention.

    I got third place. That was cool and I took the staff out for drinks after dropping by to get my free handshake.

  13. Greg says:

    Where did ass shit university of oranges come from?

  14. Michael G. says:

    I’ve never liked “ass shit university of oranges”…

    No orange ever deserved that treatment.

    ass shit university of opprobrium

  15. Miles Rost says:

    Y’know, lemme just say that I liked my time at the U of O. Hell, I liked being a part of the EMU Board when Adam Walsh and Kyla Coy (damn she had nice boobs) were in the chair. But…after that…it turned into suckitude.

    And to think, I’m actually contemplating coming back. Then again, Seattle Pacific is looking better and better with each passing week.

  16. Sweet prince says:

    This fucking university.

    Ass shit university of oranges.

  17. monalisasmiles says:

    So lame.

  18. Cameron says:

    Son of a bitch…

  19. Miles Rost says:

    And OSPIRG will get it’s funding next year.

    Someone needs to shoot Ralph Nader for bringing this monster to life 40 years ago.

  20. Curtis says:

    FWIW, the OSPIRG measure passed by basically the same margin as last year, which will make it convenient when nobody has to change their talking points.
