Did the STYLEman thread just vanish? - Page 11

Well... if you avoid Sproul and Sather gate, especially during the first few weeks of the semester, you'll be okay   . But you still have to avoid the occasional "naked group circle singalong" by a bunch of 50 something hippies   . First time I saw it, I was wondering whether they were protesting something or just having a happy fun joy thing.
You weren't really disturbed by any of this, were you? I spent years in Berkeley, and frankly I never felt compelled to judge any of what others were doing. They did not judge me. Please explain. Also, please explain what is meant by "happy fun joy thing." Thanks.

The founder of the "Silver Ring Thing" is a fervent believer that the "end is neigh", and this movement is close and dear to Mr. Bush's heart - just look at the amount of government funding they've been getting.
I have no idea who you mean.

Nahh, it was pretty funny actually. (after you get over the inital shock of walking down Bancroft and seeing it) . What I meant about "Happy fun Joy" was when they were in their circle, it was pretty close and the sounds emanating was pretty close to what I would imagine a circle jerk would sound like. It's also a bit of a shock when "the naked guy" leaves the classroom as you enter...

I freely admit that I let Berkeley get to me. I was young and impressionable, and frankly shocked by the whole scene. If I had it to do over again, I would try harder to maintain an attitude of amused detachment. I would still be saddened, however, by the decline of a once-great university into a silly carnival.

You must have heard of the movement that promotes virginity? They affirm their virginity vow by wearing a silver ring...

Hey. The Molecular Biology department is one of the finest in the world. As is the Computer Science dept.

Personally, I don't consider abstinence a fringe idea. Out of date? Arguably. Hard to maintain in this day and age? Certainly. Unpopular (almost despised) in certain quarters? No doubt.

The humanities and the social sciences are jokes, sad shadows of their prior greatness. And, as a whole, the rest of the school is basically a 1960s Fantasy Camp. Come play at protest for four -- or even five or six or seven -- years. Why not? Your parents are paying.

This has nothing to do with clothing, so it is going to General. Big Brother loves you.
