I see some things haven’t changed. Via Fark:
Students in Tutus Saved From Mountain Road
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) – Two dozen Caltech students wearing Superman capes, tutus and other odd attire as part of a hazing stunt were rescued after getting stranded on the Mount Wilson Toll Road.
By this point in the article I already knew which house was responsible.
Organizers of the California Institute of Technology initiation ritual said they didn’t realize the road had been covered last year by a landslide.
“You’ve got to remember that common sense is not factored into the intelligence quotient,” said Deputy Greg Gabriel, who leads the Altadena Search and Rescue team.
The annual Mount Wilson Night, when freshmen are initiated into the Page House dormitory at Caltech, started off as planned Monday night, Caltech sophomore Nick Goeden said Tuesday.
(Emphasis mine.) That quote from the deputy should become the new Page House motto.
