   Students stressed out from exam week can take a long walk, go to the local pub, or if you attend Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, visit a school-sanctioned room full of puppies

I think campus orgy rooms would be a better idea.

Bullshiat. Finals are stressful. Deadlines are stressful. Jobs are stressful. Lives are stressful. It's all farking relative. Then some of us have to combine all of the above. Just because it isn't what you call stressful doesn't mean it isn't stressful for the rest of us

Maslow's hierarchy of needs explains this nicely. Every gripe that any of us could honestly muster on this forum pales in comparison to the problems faced by billions of other people in this world. Does that mean that we're just a bunch of candy-asses? No. Our expectations evolve with our standard of living.

If I'm going to go to a room full of puppies to de-stress, they'd better not be talking about dogs.

Puppies can work for anything.

Fight with your girlfriend? ....bring in the puppies.

NHL labor talks break down? ....bring in the puppies.

Dems and Reps can't agree on fiscal cliff issues? ....bring in the puppies.

Serial killer can't stop killing? ....bring in the puppies. Unless he kills puppies on the side.

Having a couple of tests you had months to study for and guides that explain exactly what is going to be on the test? Sounds ruff.

Why do you need puppies to get rid of your stress?

The fastest way I've found to get rid of stress is to take $15 of Del Taco and a handle of something cheap to one of the sorority houses...

How about proper HVAC at the Sexton campus I think not being frozen and roasted withing the same day would go a long way towards improving morale.

For values of "getting rid of stress" approaching "causing explosive diarrhea..." Seriously, El Pollo Loco would be a better choice, barely.

And for those who are insufficiently stressed and need to get psyched up for exams, there will be an alternative room with a moose.

I would imagine that a cash strapped, loan laden student today facing bleak job prospects (both summer and long term) knows their fair share of stress.

15 minutes with a puppy is not really any different than 15 minutes of escapist TV, drinking or hobo murdering. Right?

2) forgot all about it for a month and a half

I don't know about that... Finals week was always extremely stressful for me. Big papers/projects to wrap up, massive tests to cram for... I'll still occasionally wake up from a nightmare where it's 10pm and I have a huge paper due the next day.

There are a lot of times when spending 20 minutes with a puppy or kitten would turn a bad day into a good day.

OTOH: first world problems!
