Tired of Writing Stupid Papers? Post Something Stupid to a Website Instead!

What do elite university students do at the library? More and more, the answer is: Post explicit, anonymous sex chat and other ephemera on school-specific websites built just for this purpose. The "Bored At" network of websites now serves nine schools with sites named after their most popular student libraries: NYU has boredatbobst.com, Stanford has boredatgreen.com, and Harvard has boredatlamont.com. A Harvard Class of 2006 graduate made the networks "to create a forum for truly free speech," he explained to IvyGate. "Taking away inhibitions results in a colorful display of extreme brilliance and extreme ignorance." Add to that: extreme sexual frustration.
