It’s wild. When you’ve got enormous concentrations of drunks, as at Chico State and environs, and at Washington State, your school becomes impossible to distinguish from Skid Row. Same mass public intoxication; same injury and death stats. At Washington State, students are constantly falling out of windows; at Chico things run more toward choking on your own vomit.

You truly have to wonder at a town, long famous for attracting drunks from hundreds of miles away, deciding that a great holiday tradition would be to put them all on the local river at the same time.

During the event, police performed 63 river rescues, Glenn County Undersheriff Rich Warren said. Ten people were arrested for driving under the influence near the river.””

    The decision may have been made while under the influence.

    10,000 tubers! You’d think all those potatoes would have gravitated toward Vodka Bottle Beach.

    Jeff: LOL.

    […] Better keep the stadium swimming pools shallow, or you’ll drown your students… Remember Chico State! […]
