its pretty serious how crazy they are about making sure no one goes down there.]]>
I attended a “small western vocational technical school for boys in El Paso County”, which happens to be federally funded. (Two points if you can guess the real name of this institution.) Not only did it have tunnels, which likewise were supposedly off-limits and grounds for expulsion if caught, but you could use them to get to any building in the complex. Including the gym, which had an Olympic-size pool with diving towers, and a crash pit filled with foam cubes to cushion falls in gymnastics. As well as golf carts hidden at selected entrances. Have I mentioned that deer don’t react quickly enough when woken up by a golf cart chasing them around the athletic fields?
We gained entrance using a knife blade to slide the door latch open. Tried to make it to the observatory but got lost. Saw lots of empty 5 gallon cans intended for water storage (instant water–just add water). And graffiti of course. I’d say it’s an eternal principle, not just a post-1990 invention. You young punks always think you invented the cool stuff when it really existed long before you came along!]]>
RFLMAO! Boys will be boys, man. We did the same thing!
Here’s a question: is male humor timeless? I mean, have men always thought, throughout the aeons of time, thought this sort of crap was funny?
I never laughed so hard and so often as I did the two months I was in the MTC. My district was just 12 guys, 10 of which could have passed off as professional comedians. We tried everything short of the tunnels, cuz we never heard of them.]]>
Ok, I’m gay, but I bet I wasn’t the only one uncomfortable in there. It’s a bit… dehumanizing.]]>
Sorry dude, I was there in the summer of ’93 and it never came up. This is the first I’ve heard of it too.
But I’ve heard a lot of Utah has secret tunnels and the like, even in SLC and stuff. Makes us look like cultish paranoid nuclear fall-out freaks if you ask me.]]>
