People process grief differently.  Grieving is for those who are affected, for those who knew the deceased.  It is not for us to judge them.

And if I was the one who died, I would be laughing my ass off in the afterlife at how funny that was.

Priapetic: Hyjamon: Birnone: Back when my circle of friends used to get wasted, anyone who passed out first got the treatment. Controlling you like you were a puppet would be the least notable thing done. We didn't have anything other than camcorders(look it up) back then, and absolutely nowhere to 'upload' the video anyways, so some fun times have been lost forever like tears in the rain.

What if someone passed out in their own place or room?  Seemed like if you passed out in your own place, you should be left alone.

In college, the rule was if you had your shoes on, you were passed out and fair game.  Shoes off meant you were asleep and immune from tomfoolery.


A buddy on our floor passed out after drinking a bunch. We drew a bunch of dicks on his face as punishment. He eventually wakes up and we all started cracking up. He wants to know what's so funny. He eventually looks in a mirror and freaks out

Apparently he was struggling with his grades and had to see the dean of the college at 8 in the morning... 5 hours from then. And that shiat was permanent marker. I always wondered how that meeting turned out

Reynolds said his office responded to a call at Kearby's South Haven residence later that afternoon after a parent found him in bed covered in vomit and not breathing. ...

Reynolds suspects Kearby took a pill that night but died from choking on his vomit.


This all sounds like a big cover-up. How do they know it was his vomit? Did they even try dusting? Spectra photography?  I can't believe that in 2018 they still don't have the facilities to analyze it.
