Two Students From Reed College Slam 800-Pound Snowball Into Dorm
Remember doing stupid things in college? Well this must be pretty close to the top of the list of dumb things. Two students from Reed College built a 800 pound snowball than accidentally hit a dorm building with it. It came in like a wrecking ball.
College officials report that the snowball was about 40 inches in diameter and weighed from 800 to 900 pounds. This was a serious snowball. So what did the boys do with it? They showed it off!
By 8 p.m. last Saturday, a crowd had gathered and was chanting “Roll it! Roll it!” Of course, they gave their peers what they wanted. But the math majors apparently didn’t figure the trajectory correctly. The snowball sped up, shifted direction, and smacked into a dorm wall.
The Blaze reports that the white wrecking ball ripped the wall off its studs and barely missed a window. No one was injured.
It took a Reed maintenance worker 45 minutes to cut through the snowball to inspect the damage estimated between $2,000 to $3,000."
Lesson here, don't roll your 800 pound ball into things...
