    Clowns. Just, Clowns.

    So apparently there's some thing going on where everyone is dressing up as clowns and some killing people and threatening schools and such. Now it's cool to run around in clown masks. Stupidest fad ever, and some city police have an "arrest on site, find a reason later" policy for anyone in a clown mask. Then today, there were not one, but THREE guys in clown costumes running around my college campus. One of them was unarmed, and pretty harmless, and was just letting people walk by. Then he noticed my friend was scared, and RUSHED her until she threw up and started crying (and he's an athlete, so all he'll get is a slap on the wrist). Seriously, how did this become a thing? This is such an embarrassment to the US that I would literally vote for Trump if it meant the clown thing would stop.

    I have been seeing this happen in the news(Mostly Google) and it is one of the stupidest things I have seen in quite a while. People are just so freaking lemming like to be believed.

    As far as I know no one has been killed,BUT ya never know if perhaps a Cop might shoot first and check under the mask later. Clowns be warned.(also might be frightened people shooting a clown)

    Sort of reminds me of the bunnyman stories and fads that go in cycles with that.

    Re: Clowns. Just, Clowns.

    Had an interesting experience last year in NYC. I lived in the Bronx and the girl I was dating lived just outside of Queens on Long Island. So I would have a long ass subway ride to get to Queens then have to get on the LIRR. Anyways, I had come out there and we spent the night watching "It". After the movie was over I had to get back to the Bronx as I had work in the morning. When I got on the train to Manhattan in Jamaica, Queens I shit you not the only other person in the car with me was a clown. In Queens. At midnight. After watching "It".

    I was maybe just a little concerned.

    I know that Jamaica train station - they're all clowns there! LOL That must have been really wild after watching "It"!!

    In the mid-80's, my friend and I were having lunch and there was a kid's b-day party in the restaurant. They had a clown making balloon animals, and he took a liking to my friend, and came to our table a couple of times, gave her an animal, etc. By the time we were leaving he asked for her #. He called, and they got along, and made a date. It was pretty funny since we had absolutely no clue what he looked like without the makeup! They went out a few times and then stuff got weird. Creepy weird. So she ditched him, and that was the end of clowns.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    I heard this morning that this is in anticipation of the remake of Stephen King's It, and the return of Pennywise. Whatever the reason, someone is going to get injured, or even killed.

    Re: Clowns. Just, Clowns.

    It's actually interesting you mentioned that, Medusa. It seems that when the original movie came out, kids were reporting sightings of clowns everywhere (and their parents would report the kid's story to the cops, which seems to be what most of today's outbreak is). There's a remake coming out this year, so maybe that's what's responsible for the resurgence? As for the particular clowns in our school, they won't prosecute, but security has said that they'll allow just about anything short of a firearm for self defense, so half the school carries mace. They're not going to be stupid enough to do it again.

    Side note- the only thing more ridiculous than people running around as clowns is the way American colleges treat their athletics departments.
