Possible flash pool party at Freeman [u]

Did someone just invent a new secret society? Did I fall victim to someone’s mean joke? I suppose only time will tell. Anyway, make of this what you will. I don’t know if it’s legit or not, but it seemed intriguing enough to post.

Wesleyan,

You are invited to a pool party. Please enjoy, and don’t be afraid to show your true colors. Freeman pool. Right now. Go.

Love,
Lock & Link

The pool officially closed at 5:30 this evening.

[EDIT 10:23 PM] At this point, it’s probably safe to assume that P-Safe is all over this one. But, “John” writes:

Access to pool through men’s locker room. Door is taped. The pool is fucking red.

If this is real and you’ve got photos, send ’em in!

Salvia to be Banned Because of Wacky Youtubers

In case you missed the sort of hilarious front-page article this morning, the movement to federally ban the heretofore-completely-legal-by-omission potent hallucinogen salvia has been gaining steam recently, despite the potential benefits of its responsible usage. This is why:

Those who support the contemplative use of salvia disdain the YouTubers for disrespecting the herb’s power and purpose.

“They’re not really taking it as a tool to explore their inner psyche,” said Daniel J. Siebert, a Californian who pioneered the production of salvia extracts. “They’re just taking it to get messed up.”

Try explaining this reasoning to your friend during the seven minutes when the couch they’re sitting on is sucked into a space-time rift, or something.
