    That's not the Narnia one

    The Narnia one is in the forested stretch between Wards and Willow ponds. It's a smaller, ancient gas-lit lamppost that is apparently non-functioning (but of course if you happen upon it in the middle of the winter when no-one else is around keep an eye out for faun prints).

    YES , THANKS FOR REMINDING US

    YES , THANKS FOR REMINDING US , THAT THE COLOR OF THE LIGHT POLE DOESNT ACTUALLY MATTER. WHEN I LIVED IN STONY BROOK , THERE WAS A "MEETING" WITH THE POLICE , BECAUSE THIS OLD CRANK WAS BUMMED WE DIDNT INVITE HER TO OUR COOK OUTS. THE POLICE BROUGHT SEVERAL PHONEBOOKS WORTH OF VIOLENT CRIME , AND TOLD THE LADY WHO CAZLLED THE MEETING TO STOP CALLING THEM BECAUSE OF US BBQ'ING

    Some people say that if you're walking in a dangerous area late at night and you're approached by a group of suspicious-looking people, you're supposed to act completely crazy and shout nonsense things so they leave you alone. If that ever happens to me, I'm going to yell "THE POLICE BROUGHT SEVERAL PHONEBOOKS WORTH OF VIOLENT CRIME!" over and over.
