Black out rage gallon

A “borg,” or a “black out rage gallon,” could easily be spotted at UMass Amherst over the weekend, as wasted students carried their own plastic gallon containers that were jam packed with booze. 

Leading up to St. Patrick’s Day, Boston University warned students about the dangers of drinking borgs during annual festivities.

“Borgs,” or “blackout rage gallons,” are jugs of water mixed with flavorings, like electrolytes or drink mixes, and alcohol, Boston University Student Health Services explained on Facebook. Some borg recipes call for the equivalent of 17 shots of liquor, “enough alcohol to cause an emergency,” the college said.
