Iowa entertainment [Jul. 8th, 2000|10:33 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
So what do kids do in Iowa when they're bored? Get drunk and run around the city, of course! Yup, hung out with 15 cousins, second cousins, and cousins once removed (which I now know the details of, I'd proud to say!). We drank at the house, found some sober ones to drive, went all around town, trying to find a bar or bowling alley, failed, and ended up going to a closed-after-dark park with 36 beers. Pretty fun. My cousins are all pretty cool. Wish I'd met them years ago.

I was going to post some more interesting stuff, but I have a headache and want to go crawl on the couch and watch some TV. More fun information on Iowa forthcoming.

Re:

I don't really want to profess my ignorance but what exactly is cow tipping? I assume that it's tipping cows that are asleep but, don't cows wake up like dogs when people approach them?

Re: city folk

Exactly! So is the term cow tipping a misnomer?

Re:

Yes,you're right about what cow tipping is.I can honestly say I've never done it,but from what I've heard part of the challange is approaching the cow while she's asleep without waking her.

Hey, that's the same thing that we do here in good ol' Arcata...that and go to movies. What great times.

Are there actually cities in Iowa? I thought that all it had were little po-dunk towns. :-)

Drunk out on the levee and cow tipping

When I left Connecticut fer Southereastern Montana and lived just off the res.. I was amazed they had running water let alone telephones.. imagine my surprise when the first High School party I attend there - we pile 15 people into a volkswagen bug and travel offroad over the prairie grass to CHASE (yes I said CHASE!) the half tame royal-racked elk that lived on the mining property... Maybe the game was to see which drunk teen could do it best. *chuckles at those fond, tender memories*
