Yet Another Unscientific Poll!

I'll explain this in a follow-up post, but for now, I need you folks to just answer a couple of questions. It'll only take a few seconds and it won't hurt a bit, I promise. :)

Poll #1407843 Squirrels!

What college {did you attend|are you attending}?

{Does|Did} your college have a "quad" or other park-like area on which students congregate{d} for various purposes when the weather {is|was} cooperative?

Yes
23(95.8%)
No
1(4.2%)

Regardless of your answer to #2, have you ever heard of "killer squirrels" (or something similar involving squirrels) associated with your school and/or its quad/park-like area?

Yes
6(25.0%)
No
18(75.0%)


Thanks. You've been a big (if cryptic) help. :)

I may have skewed your research. UMB is an urban campus, which is really one large building on an old garbage dump at the edge of the harbor. It has a space between the buildings, but it's a wind-blasted, crumbling and collapsing cement wasteland that's scurried over as fast as possible, without tripping on the shattered pavers. Rats are more than likely; squirrels not so much.

Is UMB located in the middle of a Quake III level?

Our squirrels were rumored to carry switchblades.

UNC squirrels (not the school I filled out the poll for) are fat, lazy bastards. Though I once saw a squirrel deliberately knock over a student's drink after tasting it with a paw. Musta been diet.

now there were squirrels EVERYWHERE. I saw more squirrels on campus than I ever did in Coker (and we were in the country). But I never heard them as killer squirrels. A few times the power was out, and it was due to some poor suicidal squirrel.

I've heard of "killer rabbits", but squirrels? Nope.

Once again, I'm beginning to suspect that my tertiary education was sorely lacking some important things. Of course, I fear no squirrel, so I'm not a good one to ask anyway. Gulls, on the other hand...

We had more problems with Canada Geese at my college. Darn poop machines.

I feel like we might have had a low level running joke about the squirrels in one area of campus that had a lot of trees, since there were a few times of year, you couldn't walk through without getting whacked on the head by acorn husks, but I don't think there was any real killer squirrels thing there.

There is a silly web comic called Candi that has a whole sentient killer squirrel thing going on it it.

Our Squirrels Threw Acorns at Us...
When we would walk through The Grove, the squirrels would try to block the paths, they'd attempt to steal food, and they'd throw things at you.
