Flash Rave.

Post by mpzreb17 » Wed May 06, 2009 11:15 pm

So, there was an insane mob of students in the JD Williams Library for about 20 minutes tonight taking a break from finals. I'd put the number at about 600. Essentially, the flash rave movement began at some university far far away. The purpose is to show up in a public place out of nowhere and dance like idiots for 10 minutes to techno music, then post the video on youtube.

As soon as it's on youtube, i'll link to it. Meanwhile, here's the one ours should be in "response to", at OSU:

Only 600 mpz? I'd say pushing, if not over, 1000.

I crowd surfed. It was a blast.

eh, i put it between 6-750. i've seen a thousand people before, working as a bouncer. the turn out was about the same as phi delt's ivy league party, and we only had 800 wrist bands for the buses..and when we were out, no more got in.

however, the crowd grew sizeably based on the youtube video after i left..so maybe at one point it was pushing 4 digits.

I figured they were exaggerating on the latest numbers (I've seen claims of 2,500)

but I dunno.

We went to the second floor and when you leaned over the edge you felt the heat blast into your face. It was a terrible smell, but really intense.

and in response to trey-It's only cool if you bet on Mine that Bird.
