133 Great Entries on "Freshman Guidebook: Mostly Girls"

Okay, so this takes a little explanation.  This is a piece of found art that apprently circulated around freshman girls at my high school a few years after I graduated.  I'll let it speak for itself, because it speaks untold volumes.  It would be impossible for anyone to intentionally create anything this brilliant/hilarious, so I have left it unaltered.  I want to post my favorite numbers, but I also want to encourage everyone to read every last word of this.  Also, if you really like it, you should join its Facebook group.

Interesting that #111 and #128 are eerily connected by play-by-play.
