For years, the Mines community has wondered who is the person responsible for the beautiful bell-ringing coming from Guggenheim. Cynics have claimed that the bell sounds are fake and electronic and until now no one has known what to believe. Upon sending a freshman writer to climb Guggenheim one evening, The Oredigger has discovered that the bell tower is indeed authentic, and has also found the identity of the bell-ringer: Jake Larson.
“Rock Paper Scissors” (RPS) is a classic free-to-play multiplayer strategy game with no anti-piracy restrictions. There are sites and applications available that allow players to game against a set program of moves or an AI, but the full version of the game can be downloaded for free off of any site where one can find instructions or off of any other player who already owns the game. The game was first created and released by some unknown indie developers in Asia during the Hang Dynasty, where it was called “Shoushiling,” which translates roughly to “hand command.” Eventually, as with many games from Asia, it grew in popularity with the Western crowd, who managed to import the game to their countries, translating it into many languages. The English translation was eventually retitled as “Rock Paper Scissors.”
Larry’s Place: good luck finding it, but it is definitely worth it. This is the kind of place that has no sign or address, so you have to keep an ear out for a braying donkey when walking in downtown Golden between 2:31–2:38 am. Locating the origin of the donkey won’t grant you access, just a one time redeemable ticket printed on a fruit roll-up. DO NOT EAT THE FRUIT ROLL UP. Instead, fold it in half with a plastic toothpick in the middle, and toss it in Clear Creek EXACTLY 11 minutes after you receive it. If the timing is right, you’ll see a small hunchback with nub left arm climb out from under the bridge near 13th Street. This is Gary. Gary will then burp a five-digit code three times; remember this code BUT DO NOT WRITE IT DOWN. Enter this code into the orange lock box that restricts entry into Larry’s Place. Once you get in, be sure to whisper the Pledge of Allegiance to the bouncer (he likes that). So, simple as that, you’re in.
