In a TV clip that got picked up by New York magazine’s website (and was also featured on BuzzFeed), a young man whom NBC 10 reporter Alison Bologna identified as a Brown student expressed his skepticism over the existence of Hurricane Sandy (Cohen). The student, who was hanging out at the Fox Point Hurricane Barrier, offered this possible explanation for the inclement weather: “I know the government wants us to think that [there’s a hurricane], but think about it, the earth rotates very quickly.” Before you all freak out, we got in contact with this student and, as you may have guessed, HE WAS JOKING. Anyone who has recently checked out the absolutely terrible Eyed @ Brown might know that Brown students will jump at any chance they can to engage in trolling activities. And let’s be real, is there an easier target than local news?
