Kittens in the vents?

Is that what they're calling it these days...?

We are, we are, we are, we are, we are the Engineers,
We can, we can, we can, we can demolish forty beers.
Drink rum, drink rum, drink rum, drink, and come along with us,
For we don't give a damn for any old man who don't give a damn for us.

'Till they die the ArtScis will be making 7 bucks
Counting shiny pennies are those greedy commie farks
Brains and brawn we've got it all, there's fark all we can't fix
We love cheap beer, we have no fear, we're farking Sci 06

Only at a Canadian University??

Nice flamebait.

Having attended an American College, this school got off lightly.

I find it kind of frightening that the story about the cat wraps up so abruptly.

Leonard Hall, aside from being a student residence, is also a dining hall.

"And the cat was rescued safe and sound. Don't you worry about where it went. Eat up, your sausage is getting cold."

... and I ate in Leonard on the 17th!

that's great, Hack4good, what's it from?
2002-10-23 02:56:28 AM  
I'm guessing Hack4good watched Boston Publix Monday night.

Beer baron: that's our Engineering song.

I'm a first year Engineer at Queens.

The first paragraph is the generic one, every year comes up with their own verse, though, and the second paragraph is my year verse...

Sweater Girl I'm in residence, I don't watch TV :)

2002-10-23 03:00:52 AM  
That's pretty uncanny, then.
The theme for the show was what you were citing.
2002-10-23 03:04:41 AM  
That is weird...

Beer Baron... there are more:

Now you know by now we can demolish forty beers,
Unlike the stupid ArtScis we will wind up with careers.
An Engineer fresh from Queen's earns roughly 40 G's,
While an ArtSci with a Ph.D. can't get work at McD's.

You can check out our page here.

Oh, and just to clear things up, At Queen's University, we call our Commerce students "Commies".

2002-10-23 03:08:57 AM  
The Queens mafia will take over. Everywhere you look, there is a Queens alumni taking powere.

2002-10-23 03:10:18 AM  
You know, before tonight, I never thought of Canada as having universities. Weird. I think I've heard of med schools in Mexico, but never any school in Canada...
2002-10-23 03:11:10 AM  
i need a cigarette and some coffee.......
2002-10-23 03:11:43 AM  
Yep, actually, believe it or not, Canada has some of the best Universities in Canada.

2002-10-23 03:16:45 AM  
Oh, good. I'm glad they have the best in Canada. I would hate to think that...

2002-10-23 03:30:22 AM  
Stop invading our schools, you damn Americans!!

no but really, many merkins make it up here for uni.. it's cheaper for them. they got dem the cutest accents :D

At least they actually report their incidents.
2002-10-23 04:30:44 AM  
I appreciate our cuddly, suspiciously polite Northern cousins trying to take our minds off this asshat shooter...but damnitt, we need more bodies to stop these bullets here!

2002-10-23 04:48:25 AM  
did someone say... mullet-clad?

i didn't do that btw, Koldcrusher did , i just liked it so much i had to repost it

God I loved that place! I get back to Kingston whenever I can. Maybe this weekend.

October 16, 11:20 pm: Biosciences Complex - A custodian contacted the ERC to report a group of
leopard frogs had escaped and were jumping all over the lab. A contact person for the area was informed at
home and provided directions for the custodian. He reported at 11:40 pm that the frogs were safely
apprehended and secured for the night.

That was frikkin' High-Larry-ous!

Nothing like that ever happened around boring old Dunning Hall.

2002-10-23 05:11:50 AM  
October 8, 12:23 pm: Campus - A student attended the Security Office and reported he accidentally dropped his wallet down a sewer grate outside the Policy Studies Building, adding that it
contained important medical information.

Yeah. "person carrying this card is extremely spastic and jumpy around sewer grates"

Y'know, this could be better than the Arcana police blotter if they'd only juice it up a little.

Tucci... I wouldn't be surprised if the student forgot to mention that he was on his way home from Clark.

Goatzilla what discipline?

ARTS '04!!! w00t!!!! Engineers are teh suxx0rs.
2002-10-23 07:43:06 AM  
A couple weeks ago there was a security dispatch about people on West Campus who were racing shopping carts around the track at like three in the morning, until a Don an Campus Security told them to stop. Damn, that sounds like fun 8)!

I like the dispatch in here about the squirrel trapped inside the room who hit the secuiry button.
2002-10-23 07:46:16 AM  
I tell ya, with all these Queen's students coming out of the Fark woodwork, it makes justifying a Queen's Fark party so much easier...

Just an observation...
2002-10-23 08:12:35 AM  
Why don't they have Christmas at Western?
Because they can't find a virgin and three wise men.
2002-10-23 08:26:08 AM  
The suspect is described as being a Caucasian male, about 20 years old with blondish hair and a thin build - at the time of the incident he was wearing a grey t-shirt, jeans, and had a black knapsack.

Wow, they are sure to catch him now! There can't be many 20 year old guys with these descriptions walking around on a college campus! </sarcasm>
2002-10-23 08:34:17 AM  
I always thought GW and Fark have a lot in common tone-wise. GW is: Golden Words
2002-10-23 08:35:39 AM  
OBB: If I wasn't in Ireland now I'd be well, well up for a Queen's Fark party.

Maybe a Toronto one? around Christmas?
2002-10-23 08:59:53 AM  
The AMS Walkhome dispatcher contacted the ERC to report one of their teams discovered a small fire outside Botterell Hall and were unable to completely extinguish it. The Security Supervisors attended and met up with the Walkhome team who were pouring bottled water onto some mulch on the ground.

I thought this was funny for some reason. "Smoldering mulch", hehe.

that song is not a queen's song, not sure where it originated, i think waterloo, but most engineering faculty frosh in canada (ontario anyways) learn it... i remember one of our year's verses had something about queen's engineering not being real engineering... since technically it is called applied science, not engineering... though if you ask me, i don't care and would say one would equate with the other... but the odd people always got made fun of... so why stop?

i thought about queens, but their campus tour made me want to puke. That, and 60% of my school's graduates go there...
2002-10-23 09:13:57 AM  
I suppose this is OBB's work. Man, if Dal security put up their stories on a website, it would probably be about all the people who yell at them over parking tickets.

Could be the next Arcata? Probably not, but I'll keep an eye out.
2002-10-23 09:21:12 AM  
Apparently they sing it at MIT too...
2002-10-23 09:57:46 AM  
The engg song is everywhere I've been... did a tourist year at UofC, couple years off, came out to Lakehead and heard the song again during frosh week, and *sniffle* brought back memories of drunken matrix algebra at UofC. Up untill that point I thought it was specific to UofC, but Bakehead knows it too.

Once we drove my sister in law back to Queens and we had lunch at the local Swiss Chalet, it felt so creepy eating Chalet Swiss while looking out the window at a lookout tower at Millhaven.

Campus Security is always good for a quick laugh.

COMP 04!

And no, that's not COMM 04, it's COMP. Computing. We're our own thing now
2002-10-23 10:31:35 AM  
2 things:

First, I love how engineers assume that Arts students will be working at McDonalds. We're in arts because we don't want to work.

Second: Ottawa U has quite a few farkers, and I'm sure there's a Fark party on the horizon. But I'd definetly be in for a T-dot fark party in late december.

p.s. Hack4good:

Oh.. I'd rather be an Artsy, than a farking engineer.

2002-10-23 10:50:41 AM  
As an engineering student of acadia, I'll say that I agree with Serial. The Arts are FAR more interesting, amazing and valuable than crunching numbers for the lure of a steady paycheck with which to buy shiat you don't need. I hate the attitude of engineers: "ha ha we're going to be earning tons of money."
Great, hope it makes you happy.
2002-10-23 11:18:56 AM  
only in a canadian university?

i disagree - one can find a lot of feces here in America in the Democratic Party
2002-10-23 11:49:31 AM  
Wahahahahah! Queens? QUEENS? QUEENS!?!?

You silly queenies. I come from that OTHER Kingstonian institution: St. Lawrence College!

Wahahaahahah... wait.

Oh crap. St. Lawrence is the shiatTY one. Damn.

Ah well. It's really interesting to see the Kingstonians come flooding out of the woodworks in this thread.

Nifty idea #44609: We need a Kingston Fark party. NOW.

What does the Western grad say to the Queen's grad?
"Would you like fries with that, sir?"

Old and hackneyed, I know.

Funny but true story:
After graduating from Queen's with my MBA in spring '93, I started working as a business consultant in Toronto. One day in the late summer of '93, I was dining at Alice Fazooli's with a friend, and was wearing a Queen's MBA tee shirt. Our server asked about it. He then told me he had graduated from York's MBA program the preceding spring. He then went and fetched our vino.

So, a real life funny story would go something like this:

"What does the York MBA grad say to the Queen's MBA grad?"
"What kind of wine would you like with your dinner, sir?"

Here's another one:
Queen's MBA and a Western MBA are attending a conference and both go to the bathroom to take a whizz. They get to talking and find out each other's alma mater.
The Queen's grad finishes, zips up, and goes to leave.
The Western grad says, "Hey, didn't they teach you at Queen's to wash your hands after taking a leak?"
The Queen's grad says, "No, they taught us not to piss on our hands."
2002-10-23 12:03:27 PM  
I'd be up for a late December Toronto Fark party.

Tucci - Classy jokes, man! 8) Incidentally, I'm planning on talking to one of my friends who's one of the editors for the Queen's Journal, see if I can't start up some kind of security blotter now... a là Arcata Eye. Thanks for the suggestion!
2002-10-23 12:05:53 PM  
Imperfect - Isn't RMC another Kingston institution? Or do they not count because of their stupid jocularity and prevalent genital warts?
2002-10-23 12:08:25 PM  
And with the way this site is set up, I'm probably won't be able to submit anything from it again... what with not being able to repost URLs and all. I hope everyone enjoys it!
2002-10-23 12:18:40 PM  

Yeah, me too.

"Queen's studdents, flash your Student ID for a 50% discount. SLC & RMC students, up yours!"-Kingston Stores' Slogan

Sound familiar?
2002-10-23 12:29:00 PM  
OBB: Yeah, that and they're the milimatary. They don't get to pull the shiat that we do, so they don't count. =)

WormB8: Actually, there's a "Welcome Back" flyer that has ocupons and articls about Kingston life, and it's given to SLC and Queenies. But not RMC.

Usually, though, you flash your student ID from anywhere for a discount. And if you're female, you flash your boobies for a freebie. =)
