Rotation 2019

Blacker Hovse always has a variety of experiences in store for prefrosh, from extra cold drinks to spooling to promotional material from Blacker Industries. If none of those words made sense to you, fear not! Read on. Then things might make more sense. At least as much sense as they can make to anyone.

I have 5 things. ONE!

Secondly, extra cold drinks are available at every Rotation dinner. If you make a drink order from a student waiter and ask for it “extra cold”, they’ll add LN2 (liquid nitrogen) to it! Other ways we use LN2 are to make ice cream (and dippin’ dots). You can tell a drink is extra cold because it looks something like this:

Thirdly, the below picture may help you understand what spooling is:

Yes, it is walking on a giant spool. Oliver demonstrates this excellent mode of transportation. OK, well actually they’re just standing on the spool. But you get the idea.

Fourthly, Blacker Industries once again decides to advertise during our dinner announcements. Beloved mole and Blacker Industries exec Chainsaw (left, cowboy hat) and his lovely assistant demonstrate the latest and greatest way to eat cereal! Hint: it involves power tools.

And here, Gracie holds up the Super-Spreader! Spreads butter faster than ever before!

Fifthly, even though I’m not a math major, this is too many numbers so I’m going to stop counting. Here are some more lovely images and explanations of our shenanigans:

FAIR WARNING! 3… 2… 1.. BOOM! Our potato cannon fires potatoes… or pretty much any potato-shaped object you put in it.

gdbg – we can explain what that means later – appears on Ali’s oscilloscope!

Ice blocking! This excited prefrosh slides down the ramp AT HALF THE SPEED OF SOUND on a giant block of ice.

(Don’t worry – pictured below, the couch at the end makes for a soft landing)

Many of these activities (and MORE) will happen again next Rotation – and we’re excited to share them with you if you decide to come to Tech!
