    I had a beat to **** couch on my front porch on campus ave. Cant tell you how many people slept on that thing during the night. Passed out/slept, whatever you want to call it. It was an amazing social tool. Women instinctively flocked to it like the salmon of Capistrano. Seriously, this couch did what we could not. Loved that couch. I do think we got some heat for having it out there and were told to remove it several times.

    I guess they have trouble with couches being burned during post game celebrations...

    I live on Welch Ave. and we've had a couch on our front porch and side porch all year. We've burned couches in the past too.

    Sticking it to the man. Don't trust anyone over 30

    It's illegal, but its never enforced. As I posted earlier, we have couches on both of our porches. Nothing has ever happened.

    Some of the laws in Ames are just DUMB! The town seems to hate it's students, if it wasn't for us, Ames would be a grain mill in the middle of nowhere!
