Texting with Decatur: An Exposé


Recently, we at the Thrill have been thinking a lot about our role on campus. What does it truly mean to be the blog face of this campus? That is why we made a call to Washington to begin a very tentative partnership with the NSA. Aren’t those the guys that are tapping phones and can read our email? Bluntly? Yes. The benefit though is posts like this one. We present to you D-Cats’s most intimate communications. Finally a little transparency on this campus!

Kenyon Mythbusters: Tunnel Under Middle Path?

This post was co-written by Thrill staff writers Matt Delbridge ’16 and Annaliese Milano ’16.

Being the graceful little swan that you are, you catch a toe and bite it—hard. Brushing off your dignity and plucking the gravel from your ass, you turn around to see what tripped you up. Ugh, of course, the little square that looks suspiciously like a trap door. Likeomigod it doesn’t even go here.
