(New York Daily News)   Your freshman year might have been crazy, but was it "fall to your death from the dorm roof after punching a fellow student in the face on the elevator while naked and high on mushrooms" crazy?   (nydailynews.com) divider line 64

No, but there was an episode of "autoerotic asphyxiation hanging death under the track stadium bleachers" crazy. And, mind you, it was at a much smaller school than NYU. How many points for that?
 
2014-01-27 10:00:40 PM
As I'm still here to post about it, obviously my freshman experience was not as crazy.
 
2014-01-27 10:12:49 PM
Except for the naked and falling parts, yes. Me and a friend assaulted what we thought was some giant man-eating death slug in the gardens at night, only to find it was a couple doing the horizontal hula. Many other nights were much crazier. Helps when drinking age is 18 and the cops only bust you for drugs if you're stupidly overt about it.

Once while walking past the dorm where the incident in TFA happened I looked up and saw a naked girl leaning out of a 10th-ish story window mid-coitus. I'd say this is crazier.

And unfortunately we don't exactly have the best track record when it comes to students plunging from high places. Poor guy.

Crazier, but we got him to a hospital.
 
2014-01-27 11:51:59 PM
Mine? Not quite, but there was the incident with Pete scaling the walls to get from a room on the third floor, to the second floor deck to avoid getting popped for smoking pot in a girlfriend's room. The look on the RAs and the campus police's faces WAS priceless when they thought they had him, and he came up the hall to ask them what was up...

What kind of mushrooms was he eating? I've never felt the need to any of that crazy shiat while shroomin'.

Holy shiat.  That was my dorm my second year.

We had "drunk guy pries open the elevator doors, climbs in and gets crushed by descending elevator" crazy.
 
2014-01-28 12:59:54 AM
It was only after I graduated college that I really learned the meaning of crazy. The dorm was quaint.
 
2014-01-28 01:03:00 AM
Once I didn't do my homework on Saturday, and instead stayed up late Sunday night to get it done. Once.

Confabulat: It was only after I graduated college that I really learned the meaning of crazy. The dorm was quaint.


I was slotted into an upper classman dorm my freshman year. It was the party dorm, and my room was the one on the deck. Which meant, that after October, the deck was locked, and even the RAs didn't have keys. Which meant that our room was perfectly situated to hide kegs--a bit of snow, snake the line in through the window, and it was a party. Plus, the windows were set up in such a way, that you could stack three kegs of cans or bottles in them, slide the blinds down, and no spot inspection would reveal jack. Well, unless the RA got around to hitting the blinds, which, lucky for us, they never did.

I wound up with a 2.4 my first semester, and I still beat both roomies, and one of their girlfriends put together. Dan got a 1.2, Taber got .5, and his girl got .24. The second semester, it was a LOT roomier...

We got into more than our share of shenanigans. In fairness, we got into a couple of other dorms' share as well too. Purington was an education, though not exactly what UMF advertised, but it WAS valuable. I pretty much gave up on ever getting a room deposit back, and figured it was a tax on having a blast.

Everyone should shroom once. Except this guy.

For the life of me I cannot believe he'd ever die for these sins.
 
2014-01-28 03:41:51 AM
I'm told I fell to my death a couple times, but I can't really remember... things are a little fuzzy about some weekends...
 
2014-01-28 03:41:54 AM
No, I can handle mushrooms. So my experiences were a lot more pleasant and fun.

AverageAmericanGuy: As I'm still here to post about it, obviously my freshman experience was not as crazy.


I think death is just a stupid part of it and doesn't really count towards the crazy quotient. If anything, it subtracts from it. It's much crazier to do crazy shiat and survive, IN ORDER TO DO MORE.

I guess sales of his song "Do it like me" are plummeting.

and now it's my fault; my fault.

My freshman year was at a community college at the age of 25, just before moving with with the future Lordfortuna. Therefore there were no crazy stories.

Now, Annual Training with the Army, three states from home and a couple of years before that... well, we pretty much had the Vegas policy on that.

/good times
 
2014-01-28 04:33:22 AM
It was similar to my freshman year, but instead of me (on the 3rd floor) it was the guy on the fourth floor leaning out the window to talk to someone. Also, it wasn't 'shrooms, it was 8-way Windowpane, which was about 5000 mikes in those days and would fark you up for DAYS.

I guess the guy lived, but he broke a lot of bones. Full disclosure - I may or may not have been the one who sold him that particular hit of acid. There was a lot of it going around and he bought from everyone. Good times.
 
2014-01-28 04:42:31 AM
I guess some people took that as a challenge to prove they were somehow even more retarded.
 
2014-01-28 05:25:02 AM
Yes.
 
2014-01-28 06:01:25 AM
I can't be sure. I have no recollection of my freshman year.
 
2014-01-28 06:06:46 AM
Pretty much, yeah, except I didn't fall.

Why do people who are on mind altering substances look down from high points and think they can jump off and fly but they never look up from low points and think they can fly up there?
 
2014-01-28 06:38:09 AM
My Freshman tear we had a few people fall out of 2nd floor windows in my dorm. Funny thing is that it never happened any higher up. I remember we were trying to sneak some girls into our room after curfew, the room we were in was on the second floor right above the hall directors room. We managed to get two girls in, the third one was really drunk and started throwing up when she was half way in the window, so naturally everybody let go of her and she fell, landing on the hall directors window AC unit. She was alright, but we damn near got kicked out of school for that one.

At NYU, no less. I guess that's one more solid data point for the "not everyone needs to go to college" crowd.

Hallucinogens have a pretty good safety record overall.  Sasha's slogan that they are 'safer than aspirin' is probably true, though not saying much.  Psilocybin particularly tends to just remove a person from their faculties in high enough doses.  People, esp noobs, can get some (typically passing) suicidal ideation.  Don't do anything irreversible on drox, fo' chrissake, yo' on drox!

Oh, they do that too. But they usually don't leave a corpse when they fail to fly OFF the ground.

The result of one of those thoughts is far less newsworthy than the result of the other.

We did have a guy get drunk and jump out of a second story window, landing himself in the psych ward over night.  He wore the wristband from his night in the nut hut as a badge of honor for the rest of the year.

U Penn had three dorm towers where, if you positioned your bed correctly, you could roll off the top bunk and fall out the window to your death.  It got to the point where that was happening about once a year when they finally remodeled the dorms and changed all the windows.

Why didn't they just, y'know, stop using bunks?

Yeah it was funny until we were dragged into disciplinary hearings about it. Hell who am I kidding, looking back on it, it is funny now, it was funny when it happen and during the disciplinary hearings I was biting my tongue trying to keep from laughing at times. The funniest part was when the hall director came banging at the door of the room we were in. The hall director was this female weight lifter that was about 5'2" and had this high pitched voice. When one of my friends opened the door she was standing there in a pair of boxers and a tshirt yelling at the top of her lungs at her. All of us in the room lost it and just busted out laughing at her. It was like getting yelled at by a Umpa Lumpa.
