During the creation of a Web site, the initial and most crucial step - dreaming up unique and creative ideas - often entails messy shuffling of paperwork as designers brainstorm and scatter through drafts of ideas.

Pestilence
We refer to rats as pests because they individually spread wonderful diseases like the bubonic plague and rabies, while destroying human property. Not to mention that they leave their shit everywhere. On the other end of the rodent spectrum, lemmings are cute little hamster-like creatures that no one really knows or cares about. At some point during the year, large herds of lemmings congregate at the nearest cliff, drink some Kool-Aid, and jump. Here's my question would you rather be a disease-carrying vermin, or a cute, suicidal ball of fur?

Off the Beat: A Painful Death by Nachos
So there I was, climbing an old iron ladder to God knows where, thinking to myself that this may be the single, coolest thing I'd ever done.

Letters to Sports: Nice Guys Finish Last
I am truly tired of reading about what a nice guy Tom Holmoe is (Holmoe Upholding Academic Integrity, Sept. 14). I, along with 20 of my friends, have been donating to Cal football for 30 years. We calculated that we have collectively donated $300,000 to Cal football over the last 30 years.
