  1. should i be nervous?

    hmm... it seems like we've been getting way more notices about "safety events" in the last six months than we have before. Has there been an actual increase in the amount of crime around campus or are pub safety& bwog just getting better about reporting it?

  2. The moral of the story

    Is to not resist a robber, or you get the beatdown...

  3. Burnt offerings

    We must appease the gods. They have frowned upon our civilization.
