Things We Found in Butler

A semester goes, and a semester comes, but the odd behavior of Butlerites during exams remains forever.

Just trying to make everyone jealous of your nook, are you?

Camping out has begun! Notice the toothbrush and toothpaste.

Driven to madness, someone took a bite out of this Butler 6 toilet seat!

Name the tag quote!

    @Obvi Hey ‘Madcap’!
    Miss you,
    ‘Local Eccentric’

  • the real question says:

    @the real question is that toilet in the men’s or women’s restroom.

  • ehh says:

    @ehh This has to be the worst conversation there ever was on bwog. Is everybody on drugs? Sleep deprived?

  • Doo doo doo doo says:

    @Doo doo doo doo poopin in butler. poo poo poo poo the smell could be subtler

  • ... says:

    @... i always get creeped out by the butler shitters. i mean, the weather stripping is a really nice touch, when i see it covering the cracks on the cubicle, it really reinforces that i am indeed sitting on an ivy league throne. but well, as we all know, columbia is a reactive institution… so what exactly were the events that lead to columbia spending thousands of dollars to install custom weather stripping over all the cracks in the bathroom cubicles in the library? it’s a creepy thought.

    throw in the weird sounds you get from the old pipes, the shitacular sprays of well, shit all over and the generally tense atmosphere that is butler and suddenly you have something that makes the bathroom at mars bar seem inviting.

    i can see it now, in ten years:

    “what was columbia like?”
    “well… it was really obscenely expensive and the bathrooms in the library were really creepy.”

      @Bookist I wish more bathroom stalls had the rubber seal, instead of the gaping 0.5-1″ peep hole between the door and frame for everyone to see you from.

    1. Apparently says:

      @Apparently Prior tenants’ toothbrushes.

  • Slayer says:

    @Slayer Notice the toothbrush and toothpaste. That person is not camping out. He/She knows exactly what to expect in Butler. A clean mouth, a chance meeting, and the rest goes into the books.
