That's the weekly Tuesday scream at Lappis, the student housing area by Stockholm University's main campus.

I figured it's the Prince Wilheim scream.

My first thought was "college town". Glad to see I was right.

1. Swedes=werewolves, obviously.
2. That would be a great time to murder someone.

Are we starting a screaming Swedes meme to replace the screaming sheep? Not sure how I'd feel about that.

We used to do that in my college dorm in Canada, too. Particularly during exam weeks, people would open their windows at 10pm and scream into the courtyard.

The same thing happens in the Flogsta neighbourhood in Uppsala. I think it used to be every night there, but I'm not sure anymore.

Great Scott! That brings back memories. Easily bleats more recent cartoons.

So, it's a bad place to be mugged.

So what happens if someone screams on Thursday?

We screamed every night during finals week at Georgia Tech, and streaked friend's finals, but all that seems pretty typical I think. Doing so every Tuesday sounds hardcore.

This thing is more entertaining when you think it's what happens in any neighborhood in Stockholm.

Never catch some sensible Finns doing that shit.

What's the meaning of Stonehenge?
Ylvis is Norwegian, but the Swedes love em' too.

Used to happen in my Uni in Wales as well, but typically during the run up to exams.

Yeah, in Lund, too. I don't remember it being particular to a certain day of the week.

It was a tradition at UCLA the first night of finals. We called it Midnight Yell.
