He comes over and turns off the steaming water that has now COVERED my bedroom floor. Before he gets here it was a bit of a scramble to get the gecko cage outta there and move all the books and clothes and shit off the floor.... What a morning...and I just woke up.....

    wanna go swimming?

    When I was a freshman in college, the same thing happened to a friend of mine just down the hall. The heater in his room would not shut off and maintenence didn't consider it a priority to fix. So even though it was 0 degrees outside, he had to leave his window open to keep the room at the right temp. Early one morning the entire dorm woke up to a fire alarm going off. I step out of my room assuming it was a drill and saw a thick wall of steam in front of me with water pouring out of his room. The radiator had burst and the ultrahot water hitting the cold air by his window made enough steam to trigger the fire alarms.

    School ended up cleaning all of his clothes and buying him a new computer, TV, and stereo which were destroyed. He also got a new radiator.

    crank the heat on the college's dime and have a pool party. I did it in my dorm freshman year with a blow up kiddy pool in the middle of winter. Best party EVER.

    It's all water under the bridge, and we do enter the next round-robin. Am I wrong?

    wanna go swimming?

    My apartment has an ancient radiator/steam heating system...

    It SUCKS. I took a photo of the boiler at one point cause it has this intricate cast company logo on it. Let's just say the copyright date is not in this century or the last.

    I can't imagine the maintenance issues at a college that has an old system.

    Ours has broken like 3x this month, we are always trying to debug it..

    - Burst drain pipe that caused the furnace to drain it's water onto the floor - pretty easy fix actually

    - Burner just randomly stopped and all it required was hitting the emergency restart switch?

    - Constant messing with it due to the water level inside the furnace having to be just right

    - Radiator release vents shooting rust/water mix, into the living room...

    A Cold shower right now sucks REALLY bad when the temperature in your place is already down into the 50s. (I.e. wake up and it's not working and you have to get to work early)

    If the house was mine I'd have it ripped out ASAP and put something modern in...

    Probably the motivating factor that will get me to get into my own house/condo next fall.

    Man, that sucks..

    The final straw for me to buy my house was when I was sitting in the "living room" of my last rental in the middle of winter and the wind outside blew the mail off the coffee table....

    Of course, you will be making a claim for all of those spendy consumer electronics that were ruined, right???
