Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down: 10/20

Thumbs Down: People Who Don’t Like Candy Corn This thumbs down is kind of a double negative—apologies to our copy team. That being said, candy corn is literally honey-flavored nostalgia. Anyone who doesn’t like it clearly just didn’t have the proper amount of Halloween cheer as a kid. For 21+ readers, try soaking candy corn in vodka and then adding pineapple juice or club soda. You’re welcome.

The Student Strikes of 1970

“[They were] wondering how long it was going to last, wondering what would come next. Students were wondering whether it would affect their job prospects and whether they're going to graduate on time and how they were going to be graded. All of that was up in the air, so long as the strike lasted.”
