The comments section is quite lively in this News-Gazette article about Unofficial.
University of Illinois graduate Rick Ross (FAKE NAME) of Chicago made it clear why he returned to his alma mater for Unofficial St. Patrick's Day: Booze and sex.
"I love this," said the 22-year-old who said he received his master's degree in structural engineering in 201 (22 WITH A MASTERS IN ENGINEERING?) He took the day off from his Chicago job so he could stretch his partying into a three-day weekend.(WHO WOULD BE STUPID ENOUGH TO ADMIT THIS.. RED FLAG THAT IT WAS A FAKE NAME)..
"I give the bartender a $30 tip," said Ross, who added that he even has his own (LIES! RED FLAG THAT HE IS LYING)Friday's was his sixth annual drinking holiday on the UI campus.(SO HE CAME TO HIS FIRST UNOFFICIAL AT AGE 16?)
The fact that the reporter didn't realize this was a lie until commenters pointed it out, and then deleted it with no correction or mention of the earlier mistake is ridiculous. Great job n-g, getting conned by a bunch of drunk kids.
