How many people can you get in a bed....or to be more precise, in a bunk? That is what students in two American colleges have been trying to find out. Virginia Technical College managed to squeeze in 65, but in New York, students of Columbia University have now set up a new record. And it seems a new craze - known as "bunk stuffing" - may have begun, following previous exploits in overcrowded telephone booths and old cars....
Thanks to careful planning, the New York students loaded their bunk with 68 bodies. And with an average weight of 10 stone per man, this compressed lump of suffering humanity must have weighted over 4 tons, if our arithmetic is right. Not a comfortable way of going to bed, and not much good for the bunk either!
