Gravity Magazine Spring 2020

Letter From the Edditor

Hello all,

My name is Kevin Dardik and I have been editor-in-chief of Gravity for the past seven
semesters. I am personally responsible for every piece of drivel, every typos, every single
obscene word, printed in this magazine for that time. Yes, three and a half years is a stupidly
long time to lead a club. Also, I realize the irony that an originally all-print publication must
now move entirely online due to the pandemic, because previously we had a really horrible
online presence. Speaking of which, the pandemic is really fucking wierd. Unless you’re a
senior like me, you do not know a Gravity Magazine led by anyone other than me. That’s
good, because holy shit are we bad. And if you are a senior, it’s doubly bad because you’re
getting thrown into the “real world” (non-academia) at a historically awful time. Don’t worry, I
understand. Because I’m going through literally the same thing. But whatever. This is the only
serious piece ever published by Gravity, and so I’d like to take a serious look back. I began with
like three other editors who had almost as little an idea of how to lead as I did. I like to think we
ended up alright, but we received a couple pieces of hate mail last semester, so idk. By the way,
last semester I really expected that if we received any bad press it would be because we straight
up called President Liebowitz a bitch, but it was just because we put some students at the
bottom of the page, instead of the top. Well, whatever, I’m sure Abi (the new Editor-in-Chief
for you uncultured fucks) will do better, because I set a hell of a low bar.

I don’t know where I’m going with this, but then again, I never did, and neither did anyone else
at gravity.

So yea. Goodbye. I will genuinely miss this magazine.

Kevin Dardik

PS: I want to tell the story of how I joined Gravity. At the club fair freshman year, I walked by
the table, and the editors at the time asked if I liked to write. I answered “fuck no.” They said
“perfect,” and that was enough to convince me. It worked, didn’t it?

In Response to Brandeis Confessions

Dear valued member of our community,
Here at Gravity, we have always prided ourselves on being sensitive and level-headed adults
who don’t make weed jokes for the entire meeting. For this reason, we take this allegation
very seriously. We take it so seriously that we all very sadly said “rip” to each other when we
saw it. That is how much we value your input, anonymous Brandeis Confessions 2: Electric
Boooogaloo contributor.
Here at Gravity, we respect our readers (all eight of them), and have never made fun of them on
purpose, we legit promise. We, personally, would never use our hard-earned Allocations funds to
purposefully publish anything that could be termed “mean.”
Therefore, in light of this extremely concerning accusation, we have pledged to take action. We
will immediately be forming a committee to put together a taskforce to begin to think about
addressing this problem. This process should take no more than one to fourteen years, and will
begin immediately (“immediatley” being a relative term which has no meaning). Rest assured,
we have put our best people on this problem. Unfortunately, Gravity is made up of only the
worst people, so that effectively means no one is on this problem.
We are also composing a rap diss track in response.

Top Ten: Strategies to Avoid Getting Called on in Class

1. Wear camouflage
2. Drink water while making eye contact
3. Write “i love you” on your eyelids and blink very slowly
4. Take notes so intensely that you never look up
5. Gouge out your eyes so eye contact is impossible
6. Have a meltdown right before class so you look pathetic and the professor
averts their eyes to avoid being confronted with your sadness
7. Sit behind that person who talks too much so the professor avoids looking
at them so as not to encourage them, thus avoiding looking at you too
8. Assert your dominance by calling on the professor
9. Show off your (man-)titties
10. Convince them you don’t know how to talk

Brandeis to Implement Ten Factor Authorization

Brandeis Information Technology Service announced last Thursday that in an effort to increase
account safety, the account system will be migrating to a “Ten-Factor Authentication” service.

The university will be ending its current partnership with the Two-Factor provider “Duo” and
moving to the up-and-coming service “Deca.” To access their accounts, students will now need
to provide:

1. Username and password
2. Authentication from a Deca™ enabled mobile device
3. A photograph of your student ID (one meal swipe will be subtracted)
4. A scan of your latest assignment (at least an 80% will be necessary for successful login)
5. Your Bar or Bat Mitzvah certificate
6. A sample of any bodily liquid
7. Social Security card (mail in only---will be returned in 6-8 weeks)
8. The prime factorization of a randomly generated 86 digit number
9. A video of you performing the Macarena (The Hokey Pokey also acceptable)
10. Simultaneously turn the key to enter your room and your campus mailbox

We reached out to CIO Jim La Creta about this exciting new development. “We really think
that this change will push campus cyber safety to new heights! We’re confident that this will
really squash out any last bit of account
abuse. After all, nobody can abuse their
user account if nobody can access it.”
