Those Crazy Europeans


 I just heard of a tradition from Europe called Bastuloppet. The idea is that college girls and boys strip down and race through downtown city streets. Some people get naked, others leave their underwear on.

I was doing some 'research' on Youtube for this and it looks crazy haha. I can't see myself ever taking off my clothes in front of like 2,000 watching people. But, knowing Europe, I'm sure there was copious amounts of alcohol involved. It still looks damn cold though.

For example, Boobs in a youtube video?

What a crazy, nudity-loving continent. Good for them I guess. It's just pretty strange to my North American mind.

Have to admit it looks fun, though I doubt I'd be able to run very fast with a boner.

This can't be limited to Europe. There are several universities... UNC-Chapel Hill for instance, that have streaking traditions... where on the 1st study day before exams, people streak in the library. It attracts masses and is a semi-annual event. Once for the Fall semester, once for the spring semester. And they don't hold their biddies or their teetahs in the process!

I guess it is too rainy where I live to start a streaking tradition... how about a we don't shower because we were up all night coding tradition? Heck we could schedule this day in at least 3 or 4 nights a week!
