It sounds like a fun and litigious party--why aren't you there?

It's 10°... and I found out about it when it was too late for me to go there in time...

Boys will be boys. Aggressive is good say the women now.Just don't hit them unsafely with your snowballs. Then take your favorite girl/woman out for an after fight encounter-in-an alley, which is the trick it seems. But don,t give up if she seems frigid, she actually may actually be too cold. Try her again suddenly next summer.

Reminds me of a spontaneous snowball fight that broke out between dorms when I was in college. People converged on the parking lots and basketball courts between these 3 residence halls and just went at it. There was no avoiding cars, since this was in a parking lot, so of course it got broken up eventually. But people by-and-large avoided vehicles and tried to hit each other.

Or groups would tackle a person and try to bury him in the snow. That was interesting too.

The fun part was that someone in one of the towers put his speakers in the window and played Bing Crosby's "White Christmas". That was actually rather nice, until someone else decided to put his speakers up and play the dialogue track to a porno at full volume. It was a most surreal aural experience at that point.

Snowball fight? Why aren't they out taking hard drugs and digging the BeeGees like their parents did?

Looks like it was fun.

How can you have a snowball fight when it's only 10ยบ outside? You need a temperature warmer than that to make a snowball.
