Letter from the Edgeitor

Posted by on Jan 26, 2017 in Over The Edge Happenings | 0 comments

Colin Slark | Editor in Chief You might have witnessed it in person, or seen it on TV. You might have seen it happening in North Dakota or in the presence of a very powerful person that has decided to become the most prolific employer of high profile neo-Nazis. Protesting! It’s all the rage these days, and if one thing is certain, old white people hate it. Whether some stuffy talking head on Fox News is arguing that protesting is disrespectful to a man who has never shown respect to anyone in his life or an oil executive is saying that protesting pipelines is disrespectful to profit margins, people are upset about the inconvenience of it all. Guess what? That’s the point. If it doesn’t inconvenience you, it’s not an effective protest. Like the people who put up poorly designed...

And then everyone died: A Peak at OTE’s Future

Posted by on Mar 30, 2015 in Opinions and Humour, Over The Edge Happenings, Volume 21 | 0 comments

Colin Slark | (New) Editor in Chief As you may know, all of Over The Edge’s 2014/15 editorial staff are moving on from their positions. This is exciting; they are going out into the world to apply the skills and knowledge they have learned at UNBC. However, I am an anxious person. I am fretting about their chances of success in the outside world. To ease my fears, I am harnessing the vast computing power of my nearly 3-year-old Macbook Pro to simulate Jasmine, Kelley, Isabelle, and SuIn’s real world chances for success. Simulation 1 – Oregon Trail (1990)   The four editorial staffers are on the US East Coast in the 1800s, and have decided to journey to Oregon. They are Bostonian bankers, because none of the choices really scream “student journalist” to me. Oh dear, I need...

Local Mom Exposes Shocking Anti-Aging Secret, Consequently Hated By Dermatologists

Posted by on Mar 30, 2015 in Opinions and Humour, Over The Edge Happenings, Volume 21 | 0 comments

April Fools, Enjoy! Jesmeen Duo | Team Member PRINCE GEORGE, BC- When a 51 year old woman from Prince George began using one weird old tip to improve her skin, she began to get an uncalled-for response from experts in the scientific community. “The dermatologists have it out for me,” the woman, who asked to remain anonymous, told sources. “Back in the day, I couldn’t even pick up my mail without getting at least one letter spelling out how much they hate me with cut-out magazine letters.” When asked what exactly she had done in order to reverse aging in her skin, the woman declined to comment. She said, “I’ve been advised by my lawyer to only sell my trick on Internet ads.” The skin guru showed us the effects of her anti-aging formula when she disappeared into another...

UNBC Merges with the Disney Company

Posted by on Mar 30, 2015 in Opinions and Humour, Over The Edge Happenings, UNBC, Volume 21 | 0 comments

April Fools! Enjoy Grant Bachand | Team Member Over the Edge is able to report that the University of Northern British Columbia has struck a deal with The Walt Disney Company. The deal includes Disney providing 5.5 million dollars in blanket funding to the university. The university, after calculating a potential deficit due to unforeseen expenditures, has decided to strike a deal with Disney to help meet its budgetary needs. Some of the unforeseen expenditures come from the recent strike, the British Columbian state of economic instability, climate change denial, and Obamacare. In particular the merger will address the massive build up of trash on the UNBC campus due to the inability for garbage services to cross the picket line. This build up of trash has caused health concerns around the university; we now will have a full HAZMAT...

Posted by on Mar 30, 2015 in Over The Edge Happenings, Volume 21 | 0 comments

Letter from the Over the Edge-itor Jasmine Kirk | (Old) Editor in Chief This is it – the issue in which I pass the torch on to the Over the Edge 2014-2015 team, including Colin Slark, Shawn Caldera, and Hannah Rizun. The venerable Colin has written for us for the past 8 months, attended a national journalism conference in January, and has demonstrated integrity and passion. I cannot imagine a better fit to take over for me as Editor in Chief, and I wish him the best in Volume 22, hitting stands in September 2015. Shawn, who may be the most smashing bro I’ve ever met, will be supporting the business with his savvy and outstanding networking skills. Hannah will be bringing a creative Euro-flair to the team when she joins in the fall. Throughout the summer, they will...
