All Your High School Friends Were Chosen by Your Classroom Assignments

The movies lied to us! It's not totally jocks vs. nerds when it comes to picking friends in school, your besties are most likely just the kids you sit near in class.

Just Tell Your Friends That You Can’t Afford to Go to Their Expensive…

A friend of yours is getting married and you’re invited. Yay! Well, maybe not yay, not always, but still — you might see some old friends, there might be plenty of free booze, and there will be an entire mountain of cake to be eaten, unless of course the people getting married are weird and adopted a zero tolerance… » 4/30/13 10:30pm 4/30/13 10:30pm
