Every night at 10 PM since the 1970s, students scream out their windows. Wikipedia is somewhat short on details.
First, I just think this is really cool in a primal sort of way. The communal nature of it makes it more acceptable. I love that one guy starts kinda faux-singing. It’s not super-pleasant to listen to, but it’s gotta be invigorating to do.
If I were a mystery novelist, this would give me a perfect opportunity to stage a fictional murder. Who’s going to come running to help a victim during the Flogsta scream?
