It seems like Rutgers never canceling classes on snow days is one of the worst parts of winter. Or maybe it’s getting stranded on the highway as you take the bus to class on a day with dreadful weather. But the truth is, these are nothing but inconveniences that dull in comparison to some of the more somber aspects of winter that many of us know too well.

Glitz, glamour, movie royalty and award statues of a very muscular gold man – the Oscars has it all.
