Whackademia Quote: America's Best and Brightest?

     Two math majors at Reed College in Portland, Oregon lost control of a massive snowball that rolled into a dormitory, knocking in part of a wall. There were no injuries…but it will cost $2,000 to $3,000 to repair the building. The incident happened February 8, 2014 after a rare trio of snowstorms in Portland.

     Students started building the giant snowball on a campus quad near the dorm. Urged by a crowd, the math majors tried to make the snowball as big as possible by rolling it down the sidewalk that goes past the dorm. But it got away….
