East Term 1 2019

By Lily Cate Hunter and edited by Kylyn Smith

Where great minds and big money meet, also known as GMB$ for lack of a better abbreviation, was a rambunctious and drama-filled entrepreneurship class. From personal experience, most tipsters of this class still don’t know how to spell entrepreneurship. This class started out with 20 tipsters but later fell to 19 after the first few days. The class consisted of mostly 3rd years, some 2nd years, and a handful of memorable 4th years (some in a good way, some in a not so good way).


Andrew KelBAE----

Undoubtedly the best and most chill TA ever, Andrew always made sure his students were having fun. From teaching them yoga during evening study (Oop) to making them Kahoots so they wouldn’t have to listen to lectures, he made sure everyone was in a good mood. Andrew will be attending his junior year at Boston University (better than Harvard) as of the 2019-2020 school year. If nothing else, Andrew taught his students that Boston University is better than Harvard. He will be teaching Game Theory during term 2 2019 at east.

His Chant----

Every morning, this class would meet under the Magnolia tree adjacent to the cafeteria (Well, everyone except MAXX WHO WAS CONSTANTLY WITH THE REV-T CLASS.), aka the Banerd tree as it is the now-official relic’s resting spot. After most of the class had gathered, Maxx would usually initiate the Andrew chant from over at the Rev-T group. It is to be noted that this chant was started because Andrew hated the “Doggy Doggy” chant and would always comment on how immature it was. The chant follows the same structure as “Doggy Doggy,” and is not to be confused with the Rev-T Molly x Adderall chant. Andrew’s goes something like this:












YOGA (some people chose to say BU)

Andrew’s RelationTIP----

With the help of her class, Andrew’s “girlfriend,” Mira the TA, promposed to him at lunch. The letters of the PROM sign were out of order, but it was still cute. They went to TIP prom together and “dated” until the end of TIP.


Troy was the instructor of the class who currently works for NC State. He will be teaching GMB$ at Rice University campus for term 2, 2019. He and TA Andrew had opposite personalities which was funny sometimes. Troy had “connections,” so he could always plan the best field trips.

The Chris Incident----

At the first dance, Chris was looking for Carolina, but couldn’t find her. In the process, he asked Kylyn to dance. They ended up dancing for two songs and held hands during “It’s the End of the World as We Know it”. Later that night, Chris texted Maxx about his relationTIP with Kylyn. Maxx decided to stir up drama. He proposed Carolina and Kylyn fight in the Gazebo with Small Dog. Carolina and Kylyn ignored him and confronted Chris together. After the confrontation, Carolina ended up going to the second dance with Chris.

The PDA Incident----

All Alyssa did was put her head in Yao’s lap. That’s literally it.

Field Trips

1. The class made frequent trips to Duke West where Raj and Justin bought some things at the store. On one occasion, half of the class almost left the other half behind and made the bus driver mad.

2. Troy took the class to Duke West once again for a trip to tour McDonald’s. This trip was very eye-opening, especially when the owner talked about how he got the water for his drinks off of the street. Also, the entire class went inside a freezer.

Inside Jokes

• Calling Lily Cate her full name (Lilycatehunter) because it’s “cool?”

Andrew started this and it caught on around the class. She got the superlative for most likely to trademark her name as a result. Thanks Andrew.

• “I think moto moto likes you”

This originated from watching Madagascar, and it was also a meme that was put on the class T-Shirt.

• “Go sit in the rain”

Andrew suggested playing the compliment game during break since it was raining outside. It was one of the first days of class so Yao couldn’t come up with a compliment for a girl. (it was Alyssa lmao) Then Andrew Told him to go sit in the rain and the saying stuck whenever someone said something stupid.

• “I want a divorce”

This really isn’t even that funny. It’s just a line from a movie the class watched.

• “Andrew KelBAE”

This is what Andrew’s last name sounds like.

• “penetrate the market”

Basically Troy’s catchphrase. Our small businesses must learn how to get into an already developed industry, or pEnEtRaTe tHe MaRkEt.

The Test Incident

This incident took a few days to play out. Troy told his students that they would have a test in two days on Thursday. The kids were very stressed, especially since it was supposed to be a summer course with no tests. That day Andrew spent 45 minutes with the tipsters studying for their test with them. Before the test began, Troy scared the heck out of his students when he said, this should take about an hour and a half. Troy was not one to make jokes, so of course his student believed him. He said he would put the questions up on the board, and turned on the screen. Suddenly, Madagascar music started playing and Troy said, “enjoy the movie.” David laughed saying, “we got punked,” and Yao said he would make the incident into a TIPwiki thing. Troy even brought them chocolate chip muffins and drinks, which Yao managed to spill everywhere.

  • Ansh Nanda: After leaving TIP and returning to his home country of India, Ansh collapsed from hyper caffeination after drinking 12 monsters the previous night in order to pull an all nighter…for seven days in a row. He recovered with a ruptured spleen and now has a resting heart rate of 120 bpm. Doctors say they have no idea how he survived, but equate it to a miraculous recovery, added by the gangster qualities that make him G-Smith. Following his traumatic injury, Ansh went before Starbucks and managed to successfully pitch the Monster X Starbucks collaboration, leading to the satisfaction (and deaths) of adolescents everywhere. G Smith was now a millionaire, rolling on the cash of his successful pitch. However, tragedy struck when Monster was outlawed by the FDA for causing too many deaths. Ansh is now homeless and working to make his way back up to the pinnacle of monster success.
  • Pranav Chandupatla: Due to a chronic asthma and allergies due to the wrath of the TIP pirate song, Pranav C. (Sorry) was admitted into the hospital. After multiple failed operations, he was finally saved due to his uncanny habit of taking WAYYY too many showers in a period of 24hrs. It’s weird how someone who throws so much fire washes himself so much. This tragedy did not hamper his progress due to the fact that he is invisible in the dark (take of that what you will). His quick wits and esteemed style helped him get big in the comedy industry, soon becoming the official RoastMaster of the world. He did not let the success get into his head and thought about his time in tip. This let him dawn upon the brilliant idea of a straight AND gay Grindr-like application in which he has the most followers. This thought of being gay, but isn't really, Pranav C. Is the pimp of the roasting/grinding world. He held a world record for having a big banana approximately 4 feet long. Now he is a self made millionaire but his last name is still harder to spell than entrepreneurship.

Eventually, her company hit a big jackpot with a large company, and became a millionaire with a large mansion, summer home, and factory for her company. She also starred in the "The Cinnamon Roll Movie" and made a lot of money off of that as well. She had a gazebo in her backyard and since her friend Simran was bankrupt, she let her camp out inside. When Sophie died from blowing up her toaster, she left behind a lot of money and balls to her adopted child, Ava.

But he was brought back because of a backup that he made, and continued to rule humanity with a kind but strong iron fist.

  • Grant: The least interesting man alive. My name is Grant ( a transracial) ... I was born into a family of 3 and a half . 1 mom, dad, brother, and half a goldfish. When I was five my grandma left my mom and dad..... so they sent me to a sweatshop in Vietnam. There I learned the ways to make the best weapons in the world (example: exploding phones). After working my way up and being a CEO at the sweatshops, I then took my weapons business to Somalia. Where I sold high class weapons to pirates (rrrrrrr). Now I know you may think it's illegal to deal weapons to terrorists. But look at what America did in the Middle East. Anyways after selling in Somalia I finally went back to the states. At the time was the 1# arms dealer in the world and 1# on the most wanted list. I was worth 450 billion. While in America I started my own waffle cartel with EGGO (don't tell them I said that). But it was cut short due to the us chasing. But my net worth went to 1.8 billion. So I fled to Russia and started another cartel (vodka and waffles). After making another 3.5 billion and partnering with Vladimir putin, I went to Cuba and started my own drug cartel. Which became the largest in history better than Pablo Escobar. Now i own 15 major sweatshops Vietnam, 4 weapons dealing companies in Somalia and parts of Uganda . A cartel in the us and Russia. On top of that the largest cartel in the world based in Cuba and parts of South America. I plan on starting a major tech company in China. Which will then branch off to a revolution for democracy. Which will help me take over China and boost my influence and power. Overall, I am currently the richest man at 250 billion american dollars, 15 million Russia currency, 30 billion in Cuban currency, and 150 million in African currency. I got all of it doing illegal stuff (for now). Which makes me the most wanted but not dangerous man ( I did it mom and dad). Also I'm endorsed by Kanye west and the prime minister of Australia but no one knows that. I'm currently married to my lovely wife G-Smith. We have 2 children whom unfortunately died at 3. G-smith ended up leaving me 2 years after. So I then started a marriage company and bought out the competition. I ended up marrying the most people in history. Afterwards, I got a vasectomy and became a modern day Genghis khan (minus the mass killings). After selling my marriage business for £500 billion. Then with the help Kanye west we started the fashion company called "Papi". Selling clothes made of animal carcasses. Making another 300 million. I the started a record company called "Pon$i $cheme" which sold over 3 records in a year. Every song debuted on the billboard 100 hundred at 101 :). I sold the company for half a penny. I was finally caught in Nicaragua with my friend Kevin for illegally reselling eBay items on eBay and then selling it to amazon . I was put in jail for 5 days (idk why it wasn't longer tbh). After leaving jail I hit the clubs with Alex. He taught me advanced stripping techniques (Alex is a slave to simran ;) ). I used those techniques to become the greatest male stripper besides Alex. After that I bought over 50 clubs In us and making over 5 million dollars. Then I partnered with the Hokman company to help kids with special funny bones that have seizures (loooolllll). Afterwards I went back to my home in Texas and lived in a shack with fidget spinners. Update: I'm currently in China plotting the uprising wish me luck.
