Bowdoin College first year Tola Stihs browned out last weekend. The following is a timeline of the evening’s events pieced together by friends and loved ones of the student.
10:31pm- First drink for Tola. Unbeknownst to him, this drink contains a lethal dose of industrial-grade laxative.
10:34pm- Tola’s friend, who happens to be at the pregame in his room, says she “um, [has] to go like right now”
10:35pm- Tola attempts to graze her arm in affection as she walks out, but misses and catches his arm in door.
10:42pm- Rumblings in Tola’s tummy begin. He attributes them to his “third fucking night of Thorne MAINE beef.”
11:03pm- Tola starts to doze off. His body provides a not-so-gentle reminder to excrete waste.
11:04pm- First bathroom explosions are heard by a fellow floor mate on his way to Baxter.
11:11pm- Tola’s first flush of the night.
11:12pm- While washing his hands, diarrhea strikes again. Tola sprints back to the stall.
11:12pm- Second explosion reported by group of girls heading to Lighthouse.
11:52pm- Third floor proctor sees Tola stumble out of the bathroom. Reports: “[Tola] looks like literal shit.”
12:01am- Pre-med student diagnoses Tola as having browned out. Calls Security NonEmergency.
12:12am- Tola gives EMT a nasty surprise during ambulance ride to the hospital.
7:30am- Tola wakes up in hospital and eats 6000 prunes. Browns out again.
