Heh. When I was in college, my roomate and I's favorite was to break off the wooden parking lot moveable barrier after walking back from a hard night of drinking. They replaced it a full 4 times before they finally gave up.

When I was in college, which wasn't THAT long ago, the Greek Affairs office was well aware of the propensity for kids to steal things, so they had a no-questions-asked return policy, where you could return any piece of university/greek property to them and they'd get it back to its rightful place.

I think the only stolen thing that stayed with me past my college days was a pool ball I stole from the billiards room in the union.  Even that found its way to the trash by my 25th birthday.

This guy is a genuine moron.

It's okay to do bad things if you're young and "sowing your wild oats" as long as you become a mindless drone for the Machine later on.

Let's see, pranks I did in college involved:

trespassing
stripping a man down to his boxers, hogtying him face down onto his skateboard and dropping him off at the gay guy's dorm room.
finding one man's pot stash and putting it into the front seat of the truck owned by the annoying Christian
identity theft (multiple counts)
taping the pages of a Hustler to the dorm window of the annoying Christian so that when he woke up Sunday morning for church the first thing he saw was two hot lesbians in a 69
trespassing and having sex in another person's dorm room (some people should really lock their doors.  My room was messy so I borrowed someone else's).
stole one dude's tv remote, took it apart, and made a scavenger hunt with clues for him to locate all the parts for the remote.
filled a dorm room key hole with super glue.
when someone asked for a computer game I had, I gave them a floppy disk with a computer virus
Once I filled a floppy disk with match head scrapings and nail polish remover, wrote on the disk the name of some SNES games.  Someone asked to borrow it.  That was the last floppy disk he ever used.
Left fully charged capacitors in my dorm room because one guy liked to visit and mess with my stuff

Now, one prank did result in an ass kicking.  I was in the bathroom doing my dishes (we had no kitchen) and I saw a friend of mine heading to the bathroom, so when the door opened, I thought it was him.  I had a two gallon bucket filled with water.  I shouted "Ooops" and dumped it in the stall I thought he was in.  My friend wasn't in the restroom.  I got the guy who moved in that day, it was the first shiat he had ever taken in that building and I splashed him with two gallons of cold water.  As he slammed him into the wall, I made some insults about his mother.  My injuries have healed, those jabs about his mother probably still hurt him 10 years later.

Oh, crap. The 'Magic Dollar' is going to come back and haunt me, isn't it?

It was a wonderful way to get free snacks and (more importantly) free change from vending machines. No that I am implying I did such a thing. I was a paragon of virtue, after all.

dahmers love zombie: diabloninja: Talks on a condition that they won't name his school.

Paper names school.

Paper named school he stole it from, not school he was attending.  Probably wouldn't be too hard to figure it out.  Kansas university with the same frat as Wichita State (which only has 6).


From the article:


Potter spoke on the condition The Eagle not name the university or fraternity he belonged to at the time of the theft, to protect their integrity.

Told by a man now grown, the tale unfolds thusly:

The caper started, Potter said, in late March 1987 at a bar in a town he refused to name. Potter - a student at a Kansas university - was drinking with friends when, he said, fraternity pledges from WSU approached.

HindiDiscoMonster: The statute reads very differently... there are no circumstances mentioned where the statute no longer applies. This is what is confusing... it's a hard 5 yr limit... period.


You may wish to read the statute again, counselor. Chapter 21 article 58 deals with possession of stolen property. The way I read the statute he committed the crime again every day by having the statue in his possession.

Kansas Statute of Limitations: http://www.kslegislature.org/legsrv-statutes/getStatute.do?number=1168 2

or am I missing something?

Being in possession of the stolen good can often cause the statute to continue indefinitely.  Ironically, if he'd have pawned it, thrown it away, or returned it himself (in a more reasonable time frame) chances are he'd be free and clear.

Stupid criminal is stupid, even 25 years later.

I'm no lawyer, but I've worked with and for enough of them.  I've seen a few tricks of the trade.

For instance, maybe they charged him with possession of stolen goods, instead of theft.  I don't know, but that seems like the obvious loophole to jump on.

when i was in college our dorm network wasn't very secure/monitored so we'd sniff packets at night and listen in on all the unencrypted IM ( mostly AIM in those days ). We'd also "help" girls in our dorm with their computer and helpfully install a VNC server and email ourselves their IP address. Nice way to get a heads  up on interests/bf problems/wants/needs etc which then come in handy at parties. I'm sure that kind of spying/stalking is probably a felony these days.


// all of the above is a work of fiction

He still had the bust. He didn't get arrested for stealing it 25 years ago. He got arrested for receiving stolen property. It didn't stop being stolen just because of the passage of time.

So submitter's mooning of a bus full of nuns back in 1980-whatever is probably nothing he needs to worry about.

I met the guy a few times while he was doing plumbing for a house we had built. I am not at all surprised that he had kept a hold of the bust after 25 years. After seeing his work in person though I am surprised he was still in business as a plumber.

A friend of mine had a really skeevy asshole in his dorm, who nobody liked. When the guy went on Christmas break, my friend and some of his buddies removed the door and trim from his room, replaced it with a piece of drywall, and covered it with matching wallpaper they'd removed from a disused part of the dorm. To top it off, they installed a working wall sconce in the middle of it.

When asshole-guy came back from break, he went to his room, only to find it was no longer there. He went to the RA, who acted like he'd never seen the guy before and couldn't find his name as being registered to that dorm. As I understand it, the guy had a nervous breakdown sometime later and left the school.

The way the Internet and news works these days, he would have been busted within a news cycle.

Anonymously, with little traceback, would have been the way to go.

Funny things:

1) Repeatedly calling male college students "men".  If mom and dad are paying bills, they're "kids".
2) Stealing pot but not keeping it for yourself and your friends.
3) Charging $50 to remove a virus, cuz nobody else could run a freeware antivirus program (and if it was pre-freeware antivirus, then Norton prolly would have cost less than $50)
4) Thinking it hurts more to have your Mom called names than get punched in the face.

Pick: Back in the early 80's a room mate stiffed me on a $300 phone bill. I handed him the bill, which he said he would pay and never paid it. I always assumed he did. Well about 8 years later a collection agency called my father, posing as "a friend" of mine. Dad gave them my phone number, and long story short, I ended up having to pay the bill.


I did collections for a while. What floored me were the number of people, usually inner city (I did Cleveland area), who would put the bill in their (minor) kids name and socials. Well, they would let it go and pay it, and of course after they turned 18 something would happen and it would go to collections and the kids would move out and try to set up phones and end up being referred to us and find out about the accounts.

Always a fun phone call. We would tell the that they had two choices: either file a police report and send us a copy, or pay the bill. It was always interesting to see who turned on their parents (or extended family if it was them).

He went to the RA, who acted like he'd never seen the guy before and couldn't find his name as being registered to that dorm. As I understand it, the guy had a nervous breakdown sometime later and left the school.


Now that's classic.

diabloninja: dahmers love zombie: diabloninja: Talks on a condition that they won't name his school.

Paper names school.

Paper named school he stole it from, not school he was attending.  Probably wouldn't be too hard to figure it out.  Kansas university with the same frat as Wichita State (which only has 6).

From the article:


Potter spoke on the condition The Eagle not name the university or fraternity he belonged to at the time of the theft, to protect their integrity.

Told by a man now grown, the tale unfolds thusly:

The caper started, Potter said, in late March 1987 at a bar in a town he refused to name. Potter - a student at a Kansas university - was drinking with friends when, he said, fraternity pledges from WSU approached.


You're failing to take note of the "a" in front of Kansas, and the lowercase "u" in university. The school was not named.

fang06554: A friend and someone-other-than-myself got really drunk one night in Florida, and found out that the stop signs were pretty easy to work out of the ground a couple of blocks from the beach.  The next day we realized we (excluding myself of course) had no idea how the hell to dispose of the 30 stop signs (with poles) sitting in our backyard.  We just left them when we moved out.

/Or they moved out.  CSB


Hey, fatal car accidents are fun!  I know: let's turn the arrows around on a few parts of a one-way street.  Woo-hoo the fun to be had!

Is this where I can make my confessions?  Nothing could happen if I confess to possible umm "things" twenty plus years ago could they?

Check if the "things" have a statute of limitations first, and whether the statute has run or not. Some statutes run in a very short time--2 to 3 years. Murder has no statute of limitations.

How has no one made a statue of limitations pun?  Terrible.  I am very disappointed in all of you.

Should have taken it to the Pawn Stars

duckpoopy: Great Janitor: Let's see, pranks I did in college involved:

trespassing
stripping a man down to his boxers, hogtying him face down onto his skateboard and dropping him off at the gay guy's dorm room.
finding one man's pot stash and putting it into the front seat of the truck owned by the annoying Christian
identity theft (multiple counts)
taping the pages of a Hustler to the dorm window of the annoying Christian so that when he woke up Sunday morning for church the first thing he saw was two hot lesbians in a 69
trespassing and having sex in another person's dorm room (some people should really lock their doors.  My room was messy so I borrowed someone else's).
stole one dude's tv remote, took it apart, and made a scavenger hunt with clues for him to locate all the parts for the remote.
filled a dorm room key hole with super glue.
when someone asked for a computer game I had, I gave them a floppy disk with a computer virus
Once I filled a floppy disk with match head scrapings and nail polish remover, wrote on the disk the name of some SNES games.  Someone asked to borrow it.  That was the last floppy disk he ever used.
Left fully charged capacitors in my dorm room because one guy liked to visit and mess with my stuff

Now, one prank did result in an ass kicking.  I was in the bathroom doing my dishes (we had no kitchen) and I saw a friend of mine heading to the bathroom, so when the door opened, I thought it was him.  I had a two gallon bucket filled with water.  I shouted "Ooops" and dumped it in the stall I thought he was in.  My friend wasn't in the restroom.  I got the guy who moved in that day, it was the first shiat he had ever taken in that building and I splashed him with two gallons of cold water.  As he slammed him into the wall, I made some insults about his mother.  My injuries have healed, those jabs about his mother probably still hurt him 10 years later.

You sound retarded like a sociopath.
