Last month we ventured into the world f agpole stting and dance marathons. This onth here are two more punishing and badads...  Goldsh Swallowing How does something which only lastedtwo months come to symbolize the popularconcept of a fad? Simple - it exceeds all ap-preciable levels of ridiculousness! Such was the case with goldsh swallowing.Goldsh swallowing started as a fad in the spring of 1939 when Harvard freshmanLothrop Withington swallowed one whena classmate wagered that he wouldn’t. Theevent received vast coverage from the localmedia in Boston and soon college studentsthroughout the country were trying to tophis feat. Within weeks, students (mostly men) were sucking down ve, ten, twentyand even thirty sh at a sitting. At some point, adults began feeling thatthe fun-natured frolicking of college studentswas not really all that funny. Many townspassed ordinances making itillegal and a MassachusettsState Senator presented a billwhich attempted to protect the sh from “cruel and wan -ton consumption.” U.S. Pub-lic Health service warned that ingesting live goldsh could result in the swallower con-tracting anemia through tape- worms living in the sh. Fi -nally a professor at U.C.L.A.concluded that an adult malecould safely consume up to 150 sh, but warned against exceeding that amount.Before the 1970’s, the record of goldsh gluttony had gone beyond three hundred. Thankfully though, this was one fad that has nally passed. Phone Booth Stufng In taking part in this event, several col-lege students would squeeze themselves intoa telephone booth, one after another, until no one else could t in. Of course, the morepeople who could t in, the better, and uni -versities everywheresaw students skip-ping class in order totry and devise a planto set a record.The fad is oftenassociated with col-lege students fromthe west coast of theUnited States but itwas, in fact, startedin South Africa. Twenty-ve students there were able to pack in a booth and an-nounce that they had set a world record indoing so. Soon students in England, Canadaand the United States were attempting to topthat mark.Some students in England went on di-ets, and some at M.I.T. attempted to usedgeometry and calculus as a manner of de-termining the precise method to achieve the highest efciency for stufng. When they found themselves unable to pile more andmore friends into the booths, they beganchallenging other universities’ “credibility”because of supposed violations of “rules”which should have been adhered to. Someclaimed all participants must keep their en-tire bodies within the booth, while others specied that someone inside was required to place a call.The fad died out within a year in theUnited States (1959) but was reincarnated in the form of Volkswagen stufng a few years later.
