Ok, the class ring thread got me wondering if other schools do this...

At Texas A&M, your class ring is something very special. When you get it, tradition requires you to "dunk" it. That means to put it in a pitcher of beer and drink the entire pitcher in the number of seconds you grad. in.

For example, I grad. in '03, had to drink the pitcher in 103 seconds. But I did it in 36! I'm the little guy in the middle and I beat the shit out of my roommates at our ring dunking party

ETA: edit for the grammar nazi

I worked with a couple of Aggie Engineers when I was in Texarkana, great guys. They were both very proud of dunking their class rings. I'd never heard of it until working with these gents. There seems to be good tradition at Texas A&M.

Those of you outside of Texas:

Aggies do inexplicable things. Some are of the "sordid" nature, unfortunately. This is one of the tamer examples.

They're the loudmouth uncle that shows up at holidays that you just learn to tolerate.

I assumed it was for liability. A lot of people puked every time I went there, and when I dunked my ring. One gal nearby was every guy's dream girl because she chugged that pitcher like a man. She pulled the ring out of her mouth and prompty replaced the beer into the pitcher. I was still impressed.

Yep. Sooner or later they'll figure out that funnels can be used for beer down there.

ETA: who couldn't drink a pitcher in 1:03? I mean, come on, that's long enough to drink half, go pee, come back and finish.

My Father was Texas A&M, Class of '49.

Would have been Class of '45, but he had a job to do in the South Pacific that kept him and most of his fellow Aggies busy for several years.

The 'loudmouth uncle' who shows up at holidays is likely a tea-sipping TU grad.

Whoooooop! I have and I always do.
Don't hate me, hate the stupid tradition. Heck, if not hate the tradition, hate the people who put that thing up. If they're inadequate at building something like that, it's THEIR fault that it went down.

So, don't "asshole" me for pointing out yall's flaws. Don't hate the messenger. We're just tea-sipping TU students.

Again, your spite is pointed in the wrong direction. It's the people who built it that are at fault. Any person with logic would know to equate the tragedy with that.
And I wasn't making fun of the tragedy as much as I was pointing out how stupid the tradition is.

You're comparing apples to oranges here. The sniper wanted to cause harm. The ag's didn't. They were just incompetent at what they were doing. Again, it IS a tragedy.
It was a tragedy that could have been prevented if that dumb tradition wasn't in existence; since it is, they should have been more knowledgable in building such massive bonfires.

It's a tragedy that shouldn't have happened at all. People's lives were WASTED because of the inadequacy of the builders, and because of the illogic of the whole tradition.

I have a few friends that go there and i like ut. I dont care for austin as a city with their liberal views but the school is a good school. I honestly dont like when my fellow ags talk down on ut for no reason, other than they think its the aggie thing to do. I think ut and A&M should unite against OU, the REAL enemy. TX needs to stick together.
