Killer bees? No. Apparently there have been several incidents where crowds of teenagers swarm suburban parties in Australia. Using SMS to communicate, the swarms can sometimes consist of over a hundred people. A teenager died as a result of one of these incidents. On another occasion, police were the target of bottle and rock throwing by hundreds of gatecrashers. Parents are taking this threat seriously by hiring bouncers to keep out the uninvited. The Queensland Police Service has some helpful hints on how to throw a safe party.

My only question: What’s a Schoolie?
