Northeastern student learns only David Letterman can throw things from several stories up
Boston Police report arresting a 20-year-old Northeastern student who allegedly spent a good part of Sunday morning throwing stuff out of his third-floor Hemenway Street apartment:
On arrival, officers observed and located several items strewn about the ground including broken beer bottles, broken plates, broken dishes, pots, pans, a window fan, seat cushions from a sofa and a beer ball. Officers further noted a car windshield which appeared to have been damaged by one of the falling objects.
While still on scene, officers observed a white male, apparently unaware of the officer's presence, attempting to push a microwave out of a 3rd story window.
Officers observed the guy, too young to be host of a late-night talk show, to have glassy eyes, slurred speech and an unsteady gait.
Although he did have a sidekick - his roommate, who confirmed the stuff on the ground had come out of their apartment - police nonetheless arrested him on charges of willful and malicious destruction of property and disturbing the peace.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
This must mean I'm old
What's a beer ball?
(I'd google it but I don't need that internet history on my work computer)
Didn't know until I saw my first one in the woods
It's about a 5-gallon plastic ball filled with beer that you tap to dispense. It's disposable and smaller than a pony keg so it's good for smaller parties where you don't want to have to return the container afterwards either.
Well, sort of. They often did have return deposits on them. Nonetheless, they were frequently repurposed for any and all sorts of water holding purposes - water bubblers, fish tanks, ... etc. - by adding valves, tubing, large stoppers.
Genessee Cream Ale, anyone?
...hell, Methuselah, beer balls were around in the late 70s/early 80s. Actually I figured their novelty had sort of passed and they had been replaced by steel quarter kegs. Maybe you're not old...you're just not enough of an alcoholic.
Whats worse, having a college
Whats worse, having a college student with a messy room or arresting him when he is trying to clean it up?
No musical instruments?
Darn. Cake earworm.
Any BU kid should recognize this awesome word!
Defenestration is a violation of housing policy
and BU admin takes it seriously. My wife (girlfriend at the time) was nearly expelled for... wait for it... pouring a drink out a second story dorm window.
Dumbass Northeastern student!
Call it scientific research and you can do it for decades with pianos!
