QUIZ How macho is your man cave?
CREATED BY: JOEY SUMPTER
There are times in every man’s life when he needs to get away...from work, school…and especially women. But where to go when the time to evacuate arises? The answer is simple: THE MAN CAVE. Not to be mistaken with the bat cave, this tavern of testosterone is simply where manly men do manly things. Many righteous dudes out there claim to be owners of a haven for the hairy-chested, but are their spots the real deal? Here’s a quiz to see how macho YOUR penis-only party really is. Wait….what? 1. What is hanging on the walls?
A multicolor Marilyn Monroe shrine—she was so beautiful and inspiring
A poster of a snowboarder with an inspiring quote from Helen Keller that you got at the elementary school book fair
Pictures of your favorite celebrities with milk mustaches that you cut out of Teen People
Posters of badass movies, your favorite sports teams, and women in minimal amounts of clothing
2. What is the beverage of choice in your mandatory mini fridge?
Smirnoff Ices and diet sodas
BEER and lots of it
3. What literature do you have available?
The Twilight series and US Weekly
Nickelodeon Magazine and a huge collection of Judy Blume books
Nudie mags and Sports Illustrated
4. What does your movie collection consist of?
A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, and 10 Things I Hate About You
A sweet collection of Disney movies and all 75 of the movies from the Land Before Time series
A snazzy set of PG-13 classics including the Austin Powers series and Joe Dirt
Any movie that has a fair share of nudity, profanity and action
5. What does the everyday banter in your man cave consist of?
Discussion on the most recent episode of The Bachelor
Arguments over who has to be second player when you play video games
Stories of how you totally got to second base with a hottie last week
Sports talk, arguments on who can drink more, and debates about how hot girls truly are
6. What activities do you participate in while in your domain?
Knitting and crocheting
Building epic structures with elaborate Lego sets
Talking to girls on phone hotlines
Shooting hoops on your miniature basketball hoop and whooping your friends’ asses in video games

Your “man cave” is possibly the unmanliest place of all time. On a serious note, check your pants because you might have a mangina. It sounds likes someone tossed an estrogen grenade in there and definitely pulled the pin. Your man card has officially been revoked…go watch The Notebook and cry or something.
Congratulations, you are the proud owner of a child cave. Seriously, I bet your mom still takes the crust off your PB&Js and cuts that shit diagonally. The good news is you’re not a lost cause…yet. Go grow some pubes and fast-forward your life 10 years, and you’ll be fine.
Your humble abode isn’t manly yet, but at least your balls have dropped. You have a bright future in the man cave world, so don’t let anybody tell you different. Get a pen and paper and start taking notes, chief, because with some hard work and dedication you will one day be the proud owner of a real man cave.
You, my friend, have one macho spot, and somewhere Randy Savage is shedding tears of joy. You can tell from your cave that you like sports, naked women and shit. It doesn’t get any manlier than that. Pat yourself on the back, slugger, because you have the sanctuary of all sanctuaries. YOU have a MAN CAVE.

25 OUTRAGEOUS WAYS TO PUNK YOUR ROOMMATE:
Score Some Laughs At Your Roommate’s Expense With These Prankster-Approved Practical Jokes
1. Carefully place a coffee table over your roommate while they are asleep. Urgently wake them up. They will jolt up in bed and hit their head on the table. 2. Cover the sensor on the bottom of their computer mouse to drive them nuts. 3. Fill some disposable cups about halfway with confetti. Gently lay the cups (on their sides) on top of each of the fan blades in their room. Tape them in place and wait ‘til the fan is turned on. 4. Replace the cream in their Oreos with toothpaste. 5. Tape an air horn to the wall behind the door, so that when the door is opened, the doorknob presses the air horn and scares the hell out of them. 6. Buy some cream–filled donuts and fill them with mayo using a Ziploc bag with the corner cut off and a funnel. Leave them on the counter for your victim. 7. Post-It their desk…or their entire room.
8. Turn all their clothes inside out. 9. Put Kool-Aid powder on a DRY bath mat while they are in the shower. When they step out, the dripping water will turn the powder red, and they’ll freak out, thinking they’re bleeding. 10. Take their bar of soap and cover it with clear nail polish. It won’t sud! 11. Erase all your conversations in their phone, and change your name to God. Text them something… omnipotent. 12. Switch out their money for Monopoly money and their change for arcade tokens. 13. Put confetti inside their closed umbrella and they’ll be in for a fun surprise when they open it. 14. Stick needles in the showerhead holes. It will make the water spray out in all directions.

17. Wake up a little bit before your roommate and put bubble wrap under the toilet seat. The load noise will freak them out when they sit down. 18. Cut off the top of their deodorant and put cream cheese in its place. They will smell HORRIBLE all day. 19. Tie a rubber band around your sink sprayer’s handle so that your roommate gets drenched the next time they turn on the faucet.
21. Run several bungee cords across your roommate’s door when they are in their room with the door closed. They’ll panic when they push and realize they can’t open the door. 22. Put their car up for sale on Craigslist. They’ll be so confused and annoyed when they keep getting calls from wannabe buyers. 23. Use opaque tape to block the remote sensor and frustrate the hell out of them. 24. Make caramel apples, but sub the apples with onions—they’ll be in for a nasty surprise. 25. Next time they get mail from their parents, carefully open it, insert an old restaurant gift card with no balance, and reseal. They’ll be so excited about the gift…until they go to pay for their meal.

20. Swipe your roommate’s phone and change the ring tone to something embarrassing PHO (“Me So Horny”). Call them TO: SAR AH.M during class or in public CKE NZI E11 and watch them squirm.
15. Get a Fortune Cookie, use tweezers to take out the fortune, and write on the back of it “HELP I AM TRAPPED IN A FORTUNE COOKIE FACTORY!”

There’s a lot of advice that people give you about college that everybody should follow butttt nobody does. Like to do your assigned reading (and not cram the night before the test), get plenty of sleep (as you’re eating queso at 3 a.m.), use protection (honey, I’m sorry, you have the Herp) and don’t drink too much (SORRY CAN’T HEAR YOU OVER THE SOUND OF MY BEER BONGING). That’s why we’re bypassing the boring to bring you important info about the things you really care about. Now go forth and prosper--you can thank us later.

1 Bag of Spinach, $3 Spinach makes for a healthier salad than iceberg
lettuce, and it’s also great to sauté and add to any dish (pasta, eggs) for some color. Popeye would be proud.
2 Tomatoes, $1 Tomatoes can be added to just about anything, from
sandwiches to salads and omelettes, for a little health boost.
1 Onion, $0.50 Like tomatoes, onions are a cheap, easy garnish to keep around, and just a little bit adds a lot of flavor. Frozen Grilled Chicken, $6 Pre-grilled chicken breasts won’t go bad, and the hard part (actually cooking them) is done already—you just have to get your re-heat on. Make a whole meal out of the chicken, slap it on a sandwich or add it to your pasta or salad for a little protein. The possibilities are endless! Eggs, $3 – A dozen eggs are a grocery store’s gift to the college student. Although known for breakfast, don’t underestimate the egg as a lunch or dinner item. Make some rockin’ omelettes or egg sandwiches by adding spinach and tomato for a meal that’s amazing any time of day. Hard-boiled eggs also make great snacks, and who can deny the badass-ness of the breakfast taco? Bread, $3 – Absolutely necessary. Sandwiches are an amazing grab-and-go
meal, and bread is obviously a key component to that. Carb up, kids!

Peanut Butter, $3 The ultimate throwback, peanut butter sandwiches haven’t lost their charm. For a twist on the pb/banana classic, butter the outsides of the bread and cook it like a grilled cheese. Perfection. Bananas, $2 An awesome grab-and-go snack, bananas fill you up, give you energy before a workout and also taste awesome frozen as a practical popsicle. 2 Cans Fat-Free Refried Beans, $1.50 Quick and easy, refried beans are a super filling protein source that’s way more waist-friendly than Taco Bell.

10 PROVEN METHODS TO KICK YOUR HANGOVER’S ASS
AKA How To Drink Like Dog Without Feeling Like Dying
1. CHUG WATER Down H2O while you’re drinking, before you go to bed, and all day the day after drinking. Water will make you feel more like your regular self and less like you spent the night throwing up on the bathroom floor. 2. DRINK JUICE To get back to normal after a night of slingin’ shots with your homies, try drinking tomato or orange juice or sports drinks to get those vitamins back. But stay away from grapefruit juice! It has a tendency to intensify your nausea. 3. EAT FRUIT We know you want that Vitamin G(rease), but instead of fried, glazed and greasy junk, fruit is actually the most ideal food to get those vitamins back into your body.

5 DORM ROOM DATE IDEAS
Don’t Let Your Lack Of Apartment Cockblock You, Kids
1. MAKE IT A MOVIE NIGHT We know, we know. “Wanna watch a movie?” has been code for “Wanna get it on?” for, like, thousands of years. But there’s a reason for that. Plus your lack of couch means they’re already required to get on your bed—now you just gotta get ‘em in it.

2. PICNIC INDOORS ON YOUR FLOOR Who needs a yard when you’ve got a blanket and a floor! Just stuff some snacks in a wicker basket, throw a quilt or some shit on the floor, and you’re practically at the park. AND less ants=easier to get in your date’s pants. (See what we did there?)

3. SUGGEST A SHOWER Nothing says playing hard to get like inviting the potential love of your life over to get a little wet and wild. Sure, community showers have some serious disease potential and there’s a sliiiight lack of privacy, but if homeboy/girl isn’t down with that, they’re probably a total bore anyways.
4. DING DONG DITCH Show off your naughty side with the oldest trick in the book: Knocking on the nieghbs’ doors and hauling ass outta there. They may hate it, but your date’s sure to love it, you precious prankster, you. Plus that running-away rush is totez an aphrodisiac… or something.

HUGO SOTO LETS US INTO “THE PENTHOUSE”—HIS BADASS BACHELOR PAD
Describe Yourself: I’m the kind of guy who likes to have a good time, whether I’m spending the night at the fraternity house (Sigma Pi), exploring new places or [having a] quiet dinner with a good friend. Describe your room: My room is my place to kick back, hang out with friends, and make crazy memories. Typically if you walk in during a party night, the lights are on, Frank Sinatra playing in the background, the smell of cinnamon, vanilla or lavender is in the air and there are a few people drinking, laughing and playing drinking games. What is one item in your room that best describes you? My Bed! Siberian Tiger print, Playboy logo, fleece, lots of pillows and typically a stuffed animal as a finishing touch. I have a few mirrors around my bed to add depth perception to my room ;) The awesome thing about my bed is that I have two snack drawers always packed. What is the one thing you wouldn’t live without in your room? My coffee maker! My coffee maker is also my alarm with its timer feature. It wakes me up with the great smell of coffee in the morning, and depending on the day I throw in a shot of Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey to give it an extra kick. What was your inspiration for decorating your room? I’ve always wanted a cool bachelor
16 | APRIL 2013 | STUDYBREAKS.COM
pad, something that made a statement. Growing up, I’ve always had to share a room, so when I finally got my place, I was dedicated to make it the most awesome room at the University. 1 Age: 2 : r jo a What does one M n y Chai have to do to Suppl t n e m e “get invited” up Manag wn: o t to your room? Home ey, rr e t n o If you’re a beautiful M o i Mex c blue-eyed blonde, you automatically have an advantage over everybody else (unless you have an attitude problem), however if you’re willing to party [and] have a good time, I don’t have a problem sharing a drink with you. Good friends are always welcome (‘specially if they bring drinks). HUGO POINTS OUT HIS SWEETEST STUFF: 1. I have multiple guitars in my room, I’m always playing, and for the most part they are gifts from people for my volunteer service and my dedication to the Children’s Music Foundation. 2. The mistletoe above my bed: A few years back someone told me that I should have more Christmas spirit, so I went out, bought the mistletoe, and hung it over my bed, it has been there ever since. 3. My fish tank: I love my fish, Cappie. I’ve had him for about a year, and it was a gift from someone special to me. 4. My super comfortable black leather couch by my bed: That is just the best place to cuddle up next to a girl while having an intimate conversation.

TOTAL FRAT MOVE
SWEETHEART OF THE MONTH
Age: 18 • Height: 5’7” School: University of Texas Major: Biology, Pre-Med Relationship Status: Taken One thing that impresses you when you’re out on a date? I’m big on originality. If it’s not the dumb dinner/movie and back to your place routine I’ll be more impressed. When I can tell there’s been effort put in I’m automatically more interested. What’s the creepiest move a guy has ever tried to pull on you? This guy once cornered me in front of all of my friends to tell me that if I was his girl I’d have “the best pot in the world” before asking to take me out to the Macaroni Grill. Creepy and completely bizarre. What are your plans after Graduation? Med school and eventually opening a free clinic as an OBGYN. All-time favorite TFM or TSM? My degree is not a back-up-plan. It’s a passion. I went to college to learn how to save lives, not bake pies. I already knew how to do that. TSM.

Top 10 Signs You’re Not Having Enough Fun In College
PROVIDED BY: TOTALFRATMOVE.COM
Your football game day routine involves just going to the games. You are content with your long distance relationship. You remember everything you’ve done every night this semester. You’ve never told a pledge what to do and watched him do it, while laughing, with a beer in hand. You’ve checked in with your mom to let her know you are doing okay at least once a day. You’ve never compared your BAC to your GPA. You opt for dorm living over a house or apartment. You consider your R.A. a dear friend. Your Spring Break plans don’t include a beach in a warm weather region. You attend every class during syllabus week.
9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1
TFMs of the Month
Holding an intramural combine for the pledges. TFM. My life becoming a never-ending game of “illegal or just frowned upon?” TFM. When your butt dial turns into a booty call. TFM.
TSMs of the Month
I tried to be a brunette one time. It was awful. TSM. I put the fun in dysfunctional. TSM. “Should I make this my profile picture?” TSM.

HOROSCOPES • SPOT THE DIFFERENCE • THAT’S A FACT JACK
Can you spot the 5 differences between the two photos?
SPOT THE DIFFERENCE!
The stars tell you what’s in store this season.
Aries - Happy Birthday, Aries!
It’ll be a good month all around for family, friends and other relationships. Be cautious in spending all that birthday mula, however. You don’t have to buy drinks for EVERYONE.
Taurus - Happy Birthday to you too, Taurus!
You will be quite the social butterfly this month, and love and luck will be on your side. Get out there!
Gemini - This is the month to get things done: travel, start projects, study up and own it! Make time for some outdoor relaxation too. (Drinking on porches totally counts.) Cancer - This month will bring a lot of changes, especially in the relationship and school areas. Be on top of your game, and don’t be fooled by basic people. Leo - Be flexible this month; your sense of humor, energy and charisma will help you. Keep your cool when dealing with VIPs — the parentals, boss, professors, etc. Virgo - You will be feeling sweet, in-love
and romantic this month. Remember to remain realistic, though; this month will bring a change in a relationship. Dun, dun dun!
Don’t let resentment and indecision take over your life. Being flirty and optimistic will bring you joy and excitement. (And attract that lova you’re lookin’ for.) This month will be all about love, home and family. Enjoy it, but don’t forget about your responsibilities like, ya know, school. You know these are important to you too.

• There are less people than chickens in the world. • A giraffe cleans its ears with its 21-inch-long tongue. • The lifespan of a squirrel is about nine years. • Some lions mate over 50 times a day. • A cat’s urine glows under a black light. • A duck’s quack doesn’t echo, and no one knows why.
Sagittarius - You will be swamped this
month. Unleash that Sag swag and tune into your creativity to get things done!
Capricorn - This month, watch your expenses
and be on the lookout for opportunities. Keep your ears perked up and nose down to the ground and hunt them down.
Aquarius - Your energy will have people eating out of the palm of your hand. Go ahead and ride those good vibes; now is the time to ask, do and seek. Pisces Seek your spiritual side. Beauty and pleasure are best achieved with health of the mind and body. Yoga and smoothies, anyone?
