Re: “Party 2 Nite. R U Going?

As a graduate of Berkeley high in '04 who was very active in the party scene i have first hand experience with these kind of events. This article portrays a very tame depiction of party's that are "blown -up" (slang we used to describe a party consisting of mostly uninvited guests). now that i'm almost out of college i can assure you that these "blown-up" parties continue, and can be even more out of control with the "higher educated" students.
as annonymous jan-2-2008 stated " Much of their depictions of 'typical' Berkeley High parties were exaggerations.Parties tend to be much safer, as long as kids are smarter and more responsible." this scenario has a variable that is never controllable. party goers will do what they want, especially if they're drunk, and especially if they think it's cool.
i can give you countless incidents of house parties getting out of control where kids i was very close with were both victims a perpetrators. there were even a few parties i went to where almost all the items in the home were stolen: chairs, a microwave, computers, jewelery, and even stuff from the bathroom.
this is typical party behavior. isolated house parties may be manageable and fun. but parties with an unknown host are almost always like this.
