Become a Spy for Specsucks and Find Purpose in Life

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on August 23, 2012 by Anonymous

As the fall season rolls around, your opportunities to contribute to society in a meaningful way expand.  Here at Specsucks, we are preparing for a second year of groundbreaking and definitive campus news coverage.  After a summer away from the spec, things have become clearer.  Our main focus is of course the Spectator, a newspaper which has failed us both materially and morally.  But do not think we are narrow minded, zealous, or otherwise dogmatic.  Over the summer, the absence of the spec has provided me with an opportunity for sapient thoughts.  I can see now that we can cover the most broadest of topics about how the spec sucks.  For example, we can cover how their news paper sucks, how their magazine sucks, how their articles suck, etc, etc. Of course, preambulatory to this expansion is the concomitant expansion of the ranks of the Specsucks staff.  This is why this fall we are actively recruiting from the student body, especially the freshman class.

To those of you who are not considering joining Specsucks, please abate your nonconsideration for a short while, and consider this:  Working for Specsucks does not exclude you from other activities.  In fact, we actively encourage our members to infiltrate the spec and Bwog.  Thus, you are not forced to make a choice between working for Specsucks and working for the spec, but you are given a choice between working for the spec, and working for the spec plus being a super secret spy agent for specsucks.  To any of you who know basic game theory, you will recognize that the second option strictly dominates the first, similarly to how Specsucks dominates the spec.  And especially to freshman who are weighing their options, consider that by spying for the spec, not only will you be super cool, but you will also be in good company:  We already have one confirmed one informant in the incoming class, and we are tentatively having talks with a second.

Do what is right.  Do what is cool.  Join Specsucks, the only true secret society left at Columbia.  Contact us at the official specsucks email address:


Spec value depreciates

Over the past few months the value of the spec has depreciated considerably.  I am not sure if this is due to especially poor performance or due to realization by the general public that the spec indeed sucks.  I know I would never buy stock in the spec.  Thanks to an anonymous tipster for this one.
