@7: I can’t think of any way a college-age kid who owns an XBOX 360 could come up with the $20 for a microwave. Not that any of this is real, but come on. You bought that Jordan couldn’t afford to buy one?
If someone told you some jokester was behind every single Lamebook post, they would not be as funny/terrifying. They are not entertaining in themselves, they are entertaining because they are real. So when one screams FAKE it’s not bad to be like, “Uh, this is fake.” This exchange is not funny or entertaining in itself. It’s not even really that great even if it is real, it’s just two assholes. So, whatever. Calling out fake isn’t that bad. Except for it confuses me when people do and it seems really authentic. I feel like I’m missing something, or they’re just really paranoid.
But: IF this were real, Nolan is a huge asshole. Maybe Jordan is trying to take advantage of him, but if Jordan’s telling him, “I really don’t have money,” then Nolan can just buy a fucking microwave. They’re cheap, and apparently he’s well off. I’m a college student, and I can’t afford a microwave. I also don’t have an iPhone, or an Xbox though.
Point is, Nolan should be a little bit more generous. Jordan’s not necessarily right, or intelligent, of anything, but I really think Nolan came across as the bigger tool from the very beginning.
I don’t find things funny that are supposed to be taken from somebody’s Facebook friend’s page but are actually somebody’s work from another humor site. This is the second time it’s happened that I’ve caught it. My question is: does Lamebook knowingly take College Humor posts and repost them as a “real” conversation or are they not up-to-date enough on other sites that when someone submits this they think it’s golden and post it?
The best Lamebook posts are the ones where you can’t even tell who is the lame one. In reality, there’s no such thing as not being able to afford a microwave – he’d just rather spend whatever money he gets on other stuff. Also, if Nolan is bringing all the necessary college stuff, an Xbox, while awesome, definitely does not balance that out.
“It’s a bit presumptuous to think I play videogames since I am a Pre-Med.” Wow… That has to be the most stuck-up, assholish things I’ve ever read. I think it’s safe to assume that if you are a young male in college that you play videogames of some sort. If you don’t, you are either a backwoods hick, or a stuck-up pansy. Even dumbasses play retarded sports games. But apparently pre-med students are forbidden to play videogames. Oh, those videogames will suck your life away! Especially the ones that you can beat in less than 3 hours like Gears of War!
No such thing?? I’m a horrendously poor college student, working, and receiving grants, and my money gets used up on the following things: rent, utilities, car insurance, gas, food & grocery. I’m barely making it. I suppose I could use a credit card, but that’s not exactly “affording” something.
Sorry, I’m a bit bitter about my poor state, because of my devotion to studying and my frugality. There’s no way I could afford a microwave. I can barely afford to eat. But I can’t receive food stamps because I don’t work enough hours (required for a student, I suppose), besides my job being the only job for miles, the city I live in being ridiculously high in unemployment . . .
Bitter, bitter me. But it definitely happens, is the point.
I’m sorry, but if Jordan can afford an iPhone, he can get a damn fridge. It gets really annoying when you’re constantly providing for your roommate. They can either bare some responsibility for the stuff in the room or each roommate can use their own shit. I hate when a roommate takes advantage of the other one.
Also, a lot of universities offer a rented fridge/microwave situation. So that could work for them too.
Jordan has iPhone and xbox 360 but can’t afford a microwave which are like 1/5th of the price for a high end one.
Nolan a mini fridge is not a necessity its a luxory/novelty item nor is a rug. He’s also a racist or just misinterpreting Jordans display picture. (I know a guy who is stupid enough to put a picture of a person that is not him as his DP aswell)
However I do believe it wouldn’t kill either of them to reach a compromise and split the bill of a new microwave when they get there, which would probably take them 10-15 mins to walk out and get from a store.
Sorry to hear about your situation but no one is suggesting that college students are all rich. The point made was that it seems inconsistent for someone in such a dire situation to somehow be able to afford both an iPhone and a xbox 360 but not a microwave.
It’s possible that they were gifts but if Jordan has such incredibly generous friends then it seems he should have resources for a $20 microwave.
My response was to whoever said that in reality, there’s no such thing as not being able to afford a microwave. I’m aware that Jordan appears to have enough money, but that wasn’t the statement I was refuting.
ahhhh i am so glad this is fake… Xbox with games and an iphone with a data plan… the fucker is not poor… fuckin mooching asshole… poor is when you have to go to the food bank for food and wear second hand clothes and cant afford tech luxuries… been there, done that…
This tangents onto another rant. IF YOUR ON WELFARE, YOU BETTER AS HELL NOT HAVE A HUGE TV, CELLPHONE, LAPTOP OR FANCY FUCKIN CAR. welfare is a social program, not free money. work one day in your life and you’d know that. TNSTAAFL “there’s no such thing as a free lunch”… you’ll pay in the end for taking advantage of a system meant to help those that need it….
Fake or not, I think the way Jordan bullied Nolan into bringing the microwave by calling him a rascist motherfucker was top class. You can just tell that if this shit is real Nolan is gonna get his pants taken down by Jordan on just about every expenditure sharing a room incurs.
how many times does people have to post that its fake like really can you not ready the first 20 people that said that already…… and like already said since repeating seems to be the fab going on here this is awsome!
Even if it is fake I have seen plenty of kids like this. They have the newest video game systems, a nice computer, Iphone/pods/pads and can’t bother to buy a microwave.
Plenty come into the 7-eleven I work at. They pull out their ebt card while talking on their iPhone4.
This guy is not an ass for not sharing his stuff. I would have done the same. If you refuse to work with me, why should I work with you?
He has internet. Its not that hard to set up a freecycle account if you’re honestly broke. I understand if you got the 360 as a gift and you really don’t have money. It isn’t that hard to take a small amount of responsibility though.
Omg, STFU with the “It’s fake!! Wahh!” bullshit, or “it was stolen off of CH!! Wahh wahhhh!!!”. Seriously. STFU. Some of us haven’t seen it. Quit bitching. And why does half of the commentators insist on whining about it being repetitive and/ or being fake!?? Who cares?! It brings a good laugh, so seriously, STFU with your damn complaining. Not everyone has seen EVERY DAMN THING on the fucking internet. Fuck off.
