Beer Pong Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

dont_play_beer_pong_with_himIf you take away one thing from this blog post, let it be this: don’t play beer pong with this guy.

Last Friday night, an intense game of beer pong led to a fatal shooting at a home in Montgomery County.

Joseph Jimenez (pictured on the right) was playing beer pong with Scott Riley when an unknown rule infraction led to an argument. After the game ended, Jimeneze went out through the front door and Riley went out the back door. However, they soon met up in an adjacent alley and began hassling each other.

According to court documents, Jimenez claimed that Riley had said, “Shoot me! Shoot me! You guys ain’t got the b—-!”

Jimenez pulled a .40-caliber Taurus handgun from his waistband and shot Riley once in the neck, police said.

Jimenez left after he shot, but returned with his hands still covered in blood after police had arrived and told them that his gun could be found in a nearby garbage can. Riley, who went by the nickname ‘Fat Dude’, died at the scene of the crime.

Jimenez is now in custody and being charged with: first-degree murder, third-degree murder, carrying an unlicensed firearm, possessing insturments of crime, and false reports to a law enforcement officer.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
