Science is full of surprises, that much is true, but I can’t say that this would be one of them. The latest installment in an ongoing series of studies continues to offer increasing evidence suggesting that more intelligent children, who develop language and intellectual skills earlier than others, are more likely to drink and take drugs than their less intelligent peers.

There’s been a Lohan arrested and it isn’t Lindsay or papa Michael! Sadly, the arrest is still all too predictable: party-hardy momager Dina Lohan got busted for a DWI in Oyster Bay, Long Island, last night. The 50-year-old former Rockette was pulled over in her BMW for driving 77mph in a 55mph zone and turned out to be drunk. Over twice the legal limit! After complaining about being injured during the arrest, Dina took this bleary-looking mug shot and was eventually picked up at jail by someone — not Lindsay. who supposedly only found out about the arrest this morning.

The RAs’ stale greetings in matching neon shirts and Sharpie’d name tags. Awkward, passing smiles from strange hallmates trailed by nervous parents. Hellish name games and forced social bonding. Little did I know that I was about to embark on four of the best and life-changing years of my life … none of which would prepare me for the real world. Like, at all. Don’t get me wrong, I got an amazing education and grew as a human and all that shit, but being in college is like being ensconced under some cushioned, wonderland bubble, where nothing you do affects the real world (except maybe flunking out) and your real goal is just … to be. Here are some of the good (and bad) things that only happen in those four freak years:
