It must be a lot of fun to be an Arizona State University student, where those 21 and older can earn $60 a night by getting drunk. Studies are being conducted on drunk students’ memories, response times and decision-making processes through extensive questioning. Students are served one type of vodka cocktail, three drinks’ worth, in a bar-like room on campus. (At the end of the night, taxis are called for the students.)
Two young men were arrested after they had broken into a police van for the purpose of taking gag photos of themselves as if they were under arrest. However, the men somehow locked themselves inside the van, and neither they, nor a friend they called, could figure out how to open the doors. Finally they were forced to call 911. Police arrive, unlocked the van, arrested the men, and locked them back up. This time inside a cell. Talk about your dumb criminals.
