Poll: What Did You Do During The Internet Blackout?

The Internet is back after a five-hour outage, and some of us (me) are a little shamefaced about how frantic we got last night (passing the Market around 8 p.m., I mused “Wow, I bet lines are going to be out the door,” at which point a friend reminded me that an Internet blackout is not the same thing as an actual blackout, and people don’t tend to start stocking up on canned goods and bottled water simply because they can’t get onto Hulu to watch “The Only Way is Essex.”)

Maybe you’re a better person than me and don’t feel quite as incapacitated by a five-hour loss of high-speed WiFi — maybe you’re not. Either way, sound off below!

The Results Are In: Panini Press for Pope!

Poll: Who Should Be The Next Pope?

There’s been a flurry of media coverage recently about the search for possible replacements to ascend the throne of Pope Benedict XVI when he retires next week. Since we at the Thrill have a long and illustrious history of suggesting possible presidential candidates, we decided to help expedite the process with a little poll of our own. See you at the papal conclave, bitches.

Kenyon: Brought to You by Apple?

The iPhone -- Kenyon's true mascot?

It’s a dedicated reader indeed who voluntarily conducts a poll in Peirce during the chaos of prime dinner-rush hours.

Luckily for us, that’s exactly what Sarah Krumholz ’13, Lily Bullitt ’13 and Chloe Irwin ’13 did a few nights ago, and they were generous enough to pass their results on to The Thrill.

The three seniors’ survey was born out of a casual conversation about the abundance of iPhones at Kenyon, and, as they explained via email, “We wanted to put some numbers behind the discussion, so we asked everyone sitting in Old Side and New Side Peirce whether or not they had an iPhone.”

The results may surprise you — check them out after the jump! Continue reading
