Pole Game: Pit-Side
I'm sure you've heard the story by now. The frosh this year are way too keen. We need to
stall them, and make sure they spend enough time climbing the pole to learn the
teamwork they'll need to survive the rest of their degree.
From what we can tell, these are the things we've got around the
pit that might come in handy in our effort to stall them.
Your favourite food group also doubles as a pitside tool. Practice
your sidearm with a click of the left mouse button. Using it as a weapon against the
Frosh may seem a little cheesy, but if tossed strategically, it might take their minds off the
task at hand. Also, I'm sure the EngSoc Prez and your buddies in the
crowd wouldn't mind a few slices.
You like apples? Click and hold the left mouse button to wind up a
stronger shot! How do you like them apples?
Okay, I know we technically haven't been allowed to throw
apples at the frosh for decades -- but desperate times call for desperate
Clark Mug o' Goodness
Golden soda straight from the Center of the Universe. It would be
wrong for it to go to waste, so use the right mouse button to drink from the elixir.
But if you're willing to click the left mouse button and part with some of it, the allure
and subsequent effects of 6.5% ethanol might be put to good use.
Phys 114 Exam
Some keener has brought copies of his 114 exam to the greasepit.
I'm sure you know that these hideous pieces of paper should be handled with
care, and there's got to be some way to turn this to our advantage.
Click the right mouse button to check your examination paper over and make
sure there are no pages missing. Candidates will be reminded that clicking the left
mouse button will give new meaning to the term "Smart Bomb." You may begin
Someone in our year - I can't quite remember who - has a connection
at the fire department, and she's convinced them to bring a firetruck
to the greasepit! Just like in the good ol' days!
You know yourself that the Frosh love getting hosed.
So click and hold the left mouse button to
open the floodgates, and don't let up until the feedback gets the better of you.
They're cute, they're lovable, but they don't belong at the pit. If
one shows up, give 'em a shove with the left mouse button and let the Frosh act as judge,
What can one say about Commies that won't result in a million dollar
lawsuit? A click of the left mouse button is worth a thousand words.
Just in case things get
out of hand at the pit, keep an eye out for the Science Constables. They're awesome folks, and the
last thing they want to do is spoil the fun. But they're here to
make sure that everyone stays safe. So maybe just refrain
from throwing stuff while they're watching you. And whatever you do,
don't accidentally push them into the pit.
One last thing. The ancient rhymes tell of mystical, animalistic powers
contained by the
iron of the Ring. Excite and impress the Frecs with your acts of courage and lunacy,
and the Iron Ring Forge will swing out and hit the mold 3 times. When the Ring glows and
spins before you, click it with the left mouse button to unleash its power.
(I hear the Iron Ring Forge is powered by "creativity and
excitement." I don't know really know what that mumbo jumbo means, but
I'm guessing we have to experiment and do lots of crazy things to earn an
Iron Ring. I bet it would help to make offerings of food and drink to
your friends. Offerings of ArtScis and Commies couldn't hurt either.
Oh, and I know we're working hard to stall the frosh, but be sure to enjoy
yourself! Save some food and drink for yourself.)
