It started out with a kiss:
What do you think it will take to get @boonepickens to cover the rest of my bursar bill here at Oklahoma State?

And ended up like this:
.@sethsamuelson Give me 10 good reasons why I should do it.

Seth Samuelson is a freshman at Oklahoma State, and, judging by his Twitter feed enjoys the following: football, baseball, girls?, using the #badpickupline hashtag, and trying to convince T. Boone Pickens to pay his tuition. It started out on a whim, it seems, and has progressed to full-on attack mode. In between the two tweets you see above, Samuelson tweeted at Pickens at least 30 times regarding the proposal, which, until yesterday, drew no response. In those tweets he’s cited: Shawshank Redemption‘s Andy Dufresne, Bane from The Dark Knight Rises, and a willingness to vote Republican for the cash.
He’s now trying to set up a meeting with Pickens:
@boonepickens I feel like judgement is better made in person. Give me a time and place and I’ll make it happen. If not then on here can work
