Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I'm sure this is in the archives somewhere but since those aren't available, I thought I'd ask anyway: I've heard a rumor from several different people that if your roommate commits suicide/dies, you get straight A's for the semester. It sounds a little strange to me, but I've heard it so many times that I have to wonder...

Ooooo, I know this one! It isn't true. Do your work, don't try and murder your roommate.
