The Future of The Underground...


Dear Reader of the Underground,
As you can probably imagine, the Underground is somewhat short staffed due to the lose of a number of its writers/editors. To help fill these vacancies and insure the vitality of the Underground for future generations, the Underground is holding an open contest this summer. The contest will be used to pick students to fill the vacant membership positions within the Underground, including the position of Editor-in-Chief. Any current or incoming student and/or facility member at CCHS is welcome to compete.
So what is this grand sword-in-the-stone competition you ask? Quite simple really. Prospects are asked to convey to the Underground what they believe to be the greatest contribution to humankind. We, however, do not want any essays, paragraphs, or other standard CSAP-esque responses. Instead, you are asked to convey your thoughts via the contents of either a package of volume equal to or less than 0.125 cubic feet or an envelope of area equal to or less than 0.5625 square feet. Entries should be delivered to:

Submission Deadline Passed

Entries must be postmarked or dropped off by Wednesday, July 1st. In the event of a tie, however, preference will be given to the first received entry. Entries will be evaluated based upon their creativity, hilarity, ridiculousness, philosophical merit, religious upheaval, cult following, and/or weight. All entires will be evaluated by at least three departing members of the Underground. Entries should include contact information so that we may reach you if you are selected. We encourage everyone to enter. Have a good summer, send us your thought, and good luck.

By the numbers...

Please enjoy a timed sequence of this mornings events, if you weren't there to see it in person. But first, some figures:

200 Sq Ft of black cotton fabric
120 Yds white Duck tape
80 Yds black Duck tape
3 hours to assemble
45 minutes to deploy atop the library... at 2:00 in the morning
4.5 seconds to unfold when fishing wire trigger lines were pulled at 7:00 this morning

And now...

Giant Pirate Flag!

A message from our sister agency,
The Walrus and Carpenter Hacking Co.:

Hope you enjoyed the flag.

The spray paint was not our work. We encourage everyone to try to dissuade such crass "pranks", as they are not very funny but are highly destructive. Take it up a notch or stay home.

Also, anyone with pictures of the flag, please feel free to post them here or e-mail them to hackit.usu@gmail.com. No pictures of graffiti please.

USU Summer Reading!

Dear Loyal Friends and Persistent Enemies,

The USU is proud to announce the release of Issue 6. Go to http://groups.google.com/group/UnionStreetUnderground/files?upload=1 and print your copies. Kindly enjoy it while completing your finals this year, as well as during the warm days of the forthcoming summer. A few notes to consider with this issue:
  • As the Seniors are no longer in a position to help print and distribute the USU, this grand task falls to you. Not to sound like a broken record, but the exposure of the Underground is completely dependent on the benevolence of our readers in their efforts to print and distribute copies. Get as many printed and distributed as you can before we break for the summer. Thank you and good luck.
  • Pay special attention to the USU summer contest (Page 6, Issue 6), as this will be used to choose next year’s USU members. Be awesome, have fun.

Thank you all for an excellent year. We hope you have a good summer and we look forward to working with you again next year. Also, stay tuned to the Blog/Facebook for updates and articles throughout the summer. Keep up the Underground lifestyle, and considering overthrowing a small underdeveloped government. Peace.
