On December 18, Rodger Sherman, a sports writer for The Ringer, tweeted out a question which revealed a little-discussed aspect of college life: every college campus's tendency to paint its own squirrels as remarkable or special in some way.


Immediately, thousands of people flocked to the thread's comments section, telling stories of their college's squirrels.


It seems every squirrel is special in the eyes of its home university.


Many University Twitter accounts replied to the thread, making the case for why their squirrels were superior.



A few schools touted scientific statistics, saying the presence of black squirrels was truly unique!


Others simply couldn't stop themselves from replying, though they knew they were playing right into Sherman's hand.


The University of Rochester sadly has no squirrels...only "groundbois."

While some squirrels are adorable, it seems others can act downright dastardly.


Many Twitter users wrote posts defending college squirrel's honor!



Looking at some of the pictures posted by college students, no one can argue these squirrels aren't...a bit unusual.




It seems squirrels are cool no matter where they are! As Sherman sarcastically wrote after his thread went viral:

"Congrats to every college on having the only special squirrels in America, they are definitely not regular-a** squirrels"

I know that there has to be people who acted upon ideas born when smoking the Mary J. (do the kids say that anymore?) that when put into action thought... "Well that was a mistake."

Or are we tapping into the brilliant and it just needs a little nurturing? So many thoughts. Let's discuss... sober.

Many people complain about adulting because they weren't properly taught how to be responsible.

You, know, like paying the bills, filing for taxes, or just getting by on a day-to-day basis without relying on parents.

But people not knowing some very basic skills in life like, say, using a vacuum cleaner or operating a washing machine is on a whole other level.

A first date can be very exciting, but there's a lot riding on the initial romantic encounter.

Unlike in previous generations, many people meet their potential suitors through various online apps, where users have control over their perception.

Once a rapport is established, it's on to meet up in person. Once the profile pic matches expectations, most previous concerns go by the wayside and the evening can be smooth sailing.

Until it isn't.
