Remember when the NYU/Stevens student threw away their heat pump in a trash can at Stevens Park and the ATF had to come with the bomb robot?

Do you have a list of funny things to reference by topic, and then every time something’s posted on 411 you go to that list, find the funniest thing and then post about it?
