Brown University is a prestigious Ivy League school in Providence, RI. It has a 9% acceptance rate, which means it’s really hard to get into. Some of Brown’s more famous, more successful almuni include Ted Turner (the guy who owns Turner Broadcasting), Emma Watson and our very own Jordan Carlos. All incredibly smart people, dominating in their fields.
And then there’s this guy, who is out in the storm, where he’s really not supposed to be, denying the existence of the hurricane, and seemingly hurricanes in general. His problem is part denial, part science ignorance and part conspiracy theory, which is a terrible combination when dealing with a natural disaster. According to this guy, the government just wants us to believe there’s a hurricane, and the strong winds are caused by Earth’s increasing rotational speed.
Good luck to you, young man.
If any of you were considering applying to Brown, but were too intimidated, now would be the perfect time. Here’s the link to their application page. If they give you any trouble, direct them to this video.
