Kenyon Mythbusters: Beezing

In this new feature, we will venture where no Kenyon kids have gone before. Jack and Anna, your brave and trailblazing hosts, will dive into the deepest depths of conspiracy, mystery and secrecy.

First topic: beezing. No one’s talking about it.

That’s because no one knows about this non-existent plague that is not sweeping the campus.

In a survey of at least 20 college-educated adults, aged 18-22, approximately 1.2 had heard of the phenomenon of “beezing.” The next logical source of information, Urban Dictionary:

Sidenote: if you were thinking of this, you are way off. Although ‘beezing’ while watching it may make the experience marginally more enjoyable.

Of the very few people we asked about it, success was questionable. One Thrill staffer who attempted it last weekend found that it did nothing (except maybe make your eyes smell a little nicer). One first year, when asked about beezing, at first had no idea what the hell we were talking about. When we explained it, she commented on how she had tried it: “You haven’t heard of it? It’s like, a common thing” (we were not convinced). “It totally worked, I tried it at the Cove one night, it like makes you more alert or something…” Other reactions from students ranged from “I’m SO gonna try that on Wednesday” to “that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.”

beezin’ hard since 2004

If you or a loved one is addicted to beezing, there is help. We’re not too sure where, but we think the Internet is a good place to start. Especially at this lacrosse forum.

If you’ve tried it, let us know in the comments. Until then, we can’t say whether we’ve proven or busted this myth.

  1. I can’t wait to try this! I’m addicted to putting tiger balm and other menthol products on my temples, and I feel like this would be similar! So excited to get some burts beez mint and do this right

  2. Beezin is real and its like nothing you’ve ever experienced. I know that there are a lot of people on campus who think they do hard shit, but everyone of them is a pussy until they’ve beezed.

  6. Everyone around here does it at parties more or less as just a joke. Definitely wouldn’t refer to this as something you can be “addicted” to.
