Nope, I’m not talking about rappers. MIT students successfully pulled off a prank against CalTech by smuggling a 2 ton CalTech cannon across the country to MIT.
A couple of quotes I liked:
People sometimes ask me, do I worry about the potential of our nation to produce technological leaders who can solve the difficult problems of tomorrow? And I proudly say, no, I do not. Because our science leaders-in-training can steal two-ton cannons and smuggle them across country just for the fun of it.
. . .
How did they transport a cannon cross country without getting caught? Homeland security!
My guess is that if they start throwing M.I.T. students into Gitmo, it would be like putting MacGyver into Alcatraz. Figure 48 hours before the explosions and the screaming and the running and, g’hoygen, the MONKEYS!!! Will not end well…
(Sorry, I frinked out there for a second.)
