    So a bunch of dumbfucks get themselves dead doing an ass-brained stunt and they get a memorial?

    Well shit, following that logic, I got a papercut this morning so where’s my medal?

    Its a student lead project that takes many months and lots of hard work to accomplish. It was actually lead by teams of engineering students, professors, and professionals.

    Because of the accident, its still held off campus and not sanctioned by Texas A&M (HUGE liability case ensued after this tragedy).

    I gotta admit though, I never once met an Engineering student there that I liked and they weren’t too intelligent.

    Note to self: Don’t hire Aggie engineers. They obviously aim higher than common sense allows.

I do however think the monument was a little overboard, god knows how much the final dollar amount was..I don’t think they should have stopped it completely. Renegade bonfires happen and they are very dangerous, plus they want like a $20 cover fee.… Read more »

    I never heard of this. It’s pretty ridiculous, to be honest. What an absurd way to die. I’n not saying it’s funny, I’m saying it’s pointless.
