Annual MIT Piano Drop

The event of this post's title occured a few days ago.

However, because the drop is now an anticipated, regular event, it cannot possibly compare with the excitement of the very first one!

Why do college kids from the 70s always look twenty years older than today's college kids? I mean, the kids in this year's video all look like they just stepped straight out of high school, whereas the kids from the 1972 video look like they could all have children in high school. Is it the facial hair? I mean, everyone had some kind of facial hair thing going on back then and they don't now.

I'm pretty sure the students don't participate in the building of the bonfire anymore. Just the drinking while its ablaze. My cousins who went to A&M;, said there are at least 100 kegs for the crowd.

Patty, I remember it all too well... Unfortunately, one of the 12 who died was my best friend. Small world ^_^

To a generation of kids raised on Looney Tunes, seeing a piano merely drop is nothing exciting. Typically, though, I'm used to seeing it fall onto a cat, who then smiles, revealing that the piano keys have supplanted his teeth. Hilarity ensues.

Patty, no worries ^_^ (it was 10 years ago, give my psyche some credit ^_~) I just found it interesting that that became a topic of discussion here. We cover pretty much everything, don't we.
