1.     Colonial people were just short AF

2.     Giving mid-wipe high fives was commonplace during the 18th century

3.     Some conversations were simply too important to be interrupted by natural human behaviors, like peeing

4.     The Great Wood Shortage of 1693

5.     James Blair was afraid of going to the bathroom alone

6.     The TJ statue isn’t the only ~Peeping Tom~ on campus

7.     Funding for bathroom doors went directly to the business school

8.     FYE wanted freshmen to be able to make new friends AT ALL TIMES

9.     The founders wanted to weed shy bladder out of the W&M community/natural selection

10.  TWAMPs are awkward, might as well make their bathroom experiences awkward
