I can't shake the memory of the scene in PCU where they dumped raw meat on the protesting vegetarians.

[because amazing, Kottke and friends are supposed to only discover new, interesting pages and not proliferate memes...ha!, lighten up meohmy]

Kottke and gang have a divine ability to find pages on the 'net before anybody else in the world finds them, including the creators.

[Does writing within these mean that you're whispering, or is it some kind of secret encryption technique? If it is, I think I've broken it.]

Looks like a fake to me - why is nobody looking up? even the guys that have already been soaked haven't budged... probably two photos merged together... ho hum

Also, dumping that much water would make alot of noise...

We're so jaded in the age of PhotoShop. Wouldn't it be nice to just believe that this relally happened?

Wouldn't it be nice to just believe that this relally happened?

I confess, it would be easier if it didn't look like the back row on the left side has already been hit by water, but yet hasn't so much as flinched (though some of the faces seem like they've been sortah fuzzed out)....

It's like the moon landings all over again.

Goddam that Eisenhower administration, tricking us again!

Since that's actually happened to me (frosh week), I'd say it's entirely possible that the photo is legit.

Just because there's a pattern doesn't mean there's a purpose.
