“Don’t Tase me, bro!” That old Internet meme might be making a comeback on the UGA campus soon.
In addition to the “campus carry” bill, which would allow holders of concealed-carry permits to bring weapons onto public college campuses (except in dorms or fraternity or sorority houses or at athletic events), the Georgia House has passed a bill legalizing the carrying, possession and use of electroshock weapons (aka Tasers and stun guns) on campus.
In some ways it's hard to believe Automatic Pizza hasn't been around any longer than a year, so quickly did it attract an audience and become a regular stop for many in its neighborhood. But it's one year old today, so it's offering dollar slices and dollar PBRs all day. It closes at 11 p.m. Go get some.
Recently you may have noticed, during a commercial break from "Vanderpump Rules"—or whatever it is you watch after work when it's only 6 p.m. but it's already dark out and pissing rain and you just wanna dissolve into your couch with a box of Bagel Bites and a jug of Carlo Rossi and forget about life, man—a familiar song emanating from your television.

The University of Georgia’s Baldwin Hall expansion project has a grave problem—literally.
Work at the construction site has been suspended after 27 grave sites were discovered. The graves are believed to be a part of Old Athens Cemetery, also known as Jackson Street Cemetery, which was the official city cemetery for most of the 1800s. It was originally a part of UGA’s land grant and was deeded back to the university in 2004.
University officials had thought that all graves were removed and remains transferred to Oconee Hill Cemetery when Baldwin Hall was built in 1938, but that turned out not to be the case.

She also booked expensive hotels in violation of travel policies so she could earn points.
General Beauregard’s owners have confirmed that the bartender’s cheat sheet containing a recipe for a shot called a “N*****ita” is real and say the bar will reopen with no changes to its Confederate theme on Monday.
We don’t know whether it’s permanent or just until the PR crisis blows over, but the Old South-themed downtown Athens bar General Beauregard’s is closed.
An anonymous tipster told the website Death and Taxes that the bar—which came under fireafter an image purported to be a recipe card circulated online showing a shot called a “N*****ita”—was closed on Tuesday night.
Flagpole reporter and photographer Joshua L. Jones went by late Wednesday night and confirmed that it is indeed closed.
It appears that the Confederate-themed downtown Athens bar General Beauregard’s offers a drink with a name that includes a censored racial slur, outraging local social-media users after an image of a recipe sheet was posted to Facebook on Monday.
The sheet includes a shot called a “N*****ita” (the asterisks are part of the name), which includes two parts tequila, one part watermelon liqueur and a splash of sour mix.
Here’s some more fuel to throw on the Urban Outfitters fire.
The clothing retailer’s Philadelphia-based parent company, URBN, recently asked salaried employees at its corporate headquarters to “volunteer” at a Pennsylvania warehouse to pack packages for shipping, labeling the free labor a “team building activity.”
