15. When I was in grad school they tried to ban alcohol in the undergrad dorms.

They had a hard time with the idea of a rule saying that those over 21 couldn't have alcohol in their rooms, so the rule came out something like "no alcohol in the halls or other common areas."

There were two responses.

1. Some students took up brewing their own beer ... in their rooms.

2. Some students found that a rope out the dorm window to the walkway below was sufficient for hoisting kegs into their dorm room without violating the policy.

Rule + Bright kids + Bright kids' desire to get around rule = functional equivalent of no rule
