          actually my brother and s-i-l were at the show too and know the people and animals involved…don’t be suprised if you here “DUI” get involved down the road with this situation…crossed 2-3 lanes of traffic according to first hand accounts, not just a single adjoining lane!

                                      I guess this is the best place to post this. My buddy that went to Madison posted some Huffington Post article of college rankings for top 10 happiest students. Buckyville was number one, which, whatever, I don’t really care. But this was the quote that ended the article:

                                      “And that experience is joy-making and unlike any other says Ashley, a Junior majoring in Biology. “Sometimes students from other schools will ask me where I go to college, and I will say ‘Wisconsin.’ Their excited expression will instantly turn to shame, and all they will manage to get out is an ‘oh’, because they immediately know no story they can tell will top what I have done. I will not need to say a thing, they will just understand. They know that their wildest night of college was just a regular Thursday for us. We Wisconsin kids are a special breed. And – trust me – everyone else is jealous.””

                                      All I can say is, wow. Talk about :censored:ing arrogant. Seriously exemplifies everything I can’t stand about that place. Even good people pop out of their thinking their shit smells like roses (rose reference not intended).

                                        These are the same people who think that having a one-word hockey vocabulary makes them experts on the sport. You expect something different? :wink:

                                        As a father, and even if I weren’t already biased against Wisconsin, the phrase “they know their wildest night of college was just a regular Thursday night for us” is NOT a prime selling point for me to send my daughter there.

                                        The funny thing is I’m not sure if the administrators will be upset or happy about this quote from one of their students?

                                        I’m guessing outwardly upset, but beaming like a proud papa on the inside. :)

                                        That’s just….wow….

                                        I mean, I know they are proud of their partying there and the university sort of “allows” it. I don’t know if they would promote it, but I’d say they are ok with it. Can’t believe that is the kind of thing a student would use as a selling point(stolen from ‘Dillo) in an article like that, though.

                                        Just….wow.

                                          I don’t think they have the reciprocity agreement anymore so unless you feel like paying out of state tuition it’s probably not a viable option anyhow.

                                          They do still actually have the reciprocity between Minnesota and Wisconsin. But I could care less because my kids are BANNED from going to Wisconsin or North Dakota. St. Clown is on that list too but since it’s so close to our home I might let that one slide. :)

                                            Interesting, some people fed me some bad info then. I’m guessing it was just rumored to end and didn’t then.

                                                    My cabin neighbors across the way tried putting a shirt on a deer last year before hunting season. The difference was that the deer was as tame as a dog.

                                                    True to a cheesehead, they said they were going to then spray paint the deer orange in hopes hunters wouldn’t shoot it. I have no idea why they wouldn’t have just thrown it in their pole barn for a weekend instead.

                                                    The deer has disappeared, btw.

                                                          I think the bigger story is that someone in Wisconsin was willing to pay $8,500 to have Leroy speak. :mrgreen:

It was the Thursday that school got out and she just decided to party a little much (granted it was around noon when she was tanked :drunk:), heck maybe she had a challenging class. There was also 8 other employees there. :shots: Besides that she wasn’t driving the bus.
