The Tenth: The Afterlife


After an epic Ninth Reunion that greatly exceeded expectations, it was finally time for the Tenth, a pinnacle of the college reunions tradition. After nine years of continuous chugging, discipline, and hard work -- and especially the 2006 GNC innovation which solidified these years of effort -- the momentum coming into the Tenth was unprecedented. Emails started flying around months beforehand, not the typical week or so of an off-year reunion. This time expectations for the event were immense, as were the expectations we imposed on ourselves and each other.

I mean, no one wanted to expose any of the weaknesses, frailties, and accumulated lameness gathered from the last ten years of life in the real world. This had to be hidden away completely; everyone was expected to behave just as they did in college at the height of our immaturity. Finally, as the days of May ticked away, this video started circulating with stupid messages like "Get ready!"

From a Dartmouth student:
"What he's doing is a "Quick Six." I don't know how widespread that particular drinking challenge is beyond Dartmouth, but this guy must have been in the top three or four kids in our class; I've never seen faster. (I rocked out at 26 seconds at my peak, and I have a friend who clocks in at about 14-16.)"

From the comments:
"the kid is also on the US Alpine team and former NCAA Slalom champ. some kids get all the talent."

"to us dartmouth kids, his ability to quick-six in under 10 is so sexy that even my aggressively-straight male friend claims that after seeing this kid complete the task in person, he'd hook up with him."

"Future senator."

The grace of this guy's accomplishment is striking; so effortless, so graceful. So inspirational. That this was my inspiration going into the Tenth would be my undoing.

Party Innovations of the Year

Innovation #1: The GNC bracelet
as innovated by Effex

The rules are simple. If someone is wearing a GNC bracelet and you successfully GNC them, they have to give up the bracelet. The more bracelets you have on your arm when you wake up on Sunday morning, the better.

Winner: you want to be this guy, 3 GNC bracelets and counting

Loser: you don't want to be this guy, zero GNC bracelets and passed out

Innovation #2: The Beer Chug Cam
again as innovated by Effex

No ordinary camera [VIDEO]
