After discovering the latest omen of the world’s coming demise, the Clog encourages Berkeley students to put down their books and enjoy their short-lived time on Earth.

Call us old-fashioned or — if you really wanna go there — call us wussies, but we’re still kind of deeply frightened of Four Loko. Believe us, we like a good beer (or four) but something about the name, combined with the fact that Four Loko is essentially a giant can of death elixir sketches us out. Just a tad.

None of this means that we necessarily support or disagree with Ramapo College in New Jersey’s recent banning of the beverage, since, y’know, we’re mostly all adults here in college, and can make our own decisions, er, whatever.  But the stuff was reportedly involved in some of the 23 alcohol-related hospitalizations already this semester at Ramapo … so we don’t know.

We do know that humanity must not be in enough of a non-apocalyptic place to not put mass amounts of stimulants, depressants, sugar, carbonation, more sugar and gross artificial fruity after-taste in the same can. Know what we we’re saying?
