Arguments over thermostat heat up tensions for roommates

Communal living requires that one make certain sacrifices. For example, in the spirit of friendship and peace one might be forced to endure hours at a time of Barbra Streisand warbling such standards as "People" and "Second Hand Rose," or watch silently as closet space is usurped by one's cohabitators. Generally speaking it's best to be accommodating so that home doesn't become equivocated with hell.

University student keeps it 'Real' in final round

"What happens when you put seven strangers in a house and people stop being polite and start being real?" It is nearly a rite of passage for everyone under the age of 25 to know not only where this familiar quote comes from, but also seven different answers to what really does happen. When thousands of teens and early 20-somethings try out for these seven coveted spots, however, for those invited aboard, the ride is likely to be just as exciting, as fourth-year College student Candice Cook is finding out. Cook follows in the footsteps of fourth-year College student Rebecca Lord, who starred in "Real World 7," set in Seattle.
