i’m recording this now

DR: I recommend secretly recording all your conversations – plenty of ammo for blackmail later in life.
That will actually be my advice as a world weary 2nd Year to all the incoming 1st Years. Record your conversations. All of them. Your classmates will undoubtedly say stupid, bigoted, embarrassing things, and rather than banking on your own small chance of success, just diversify your portfolio and bank on one of your 20 friends hitting it big. Then, WHAM, hit em with the blackmail.
me: that is the greatest investment idea ever
