On top of the world

Boston Globe:

...MIT students had much better luck with their version [of the 1903 Wright Flyer], which mysteriously appeared yesterday morning 150 feet in the air, atop the institute's Great Dome. The wood-and-canvas plane, with a 45-foot wingspan, was the latest in the storied history of "hacks" -- ingenious, harmless pranks -- carried out by mischievous and brainy students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

F'IN AWSOME !!!!!!!!!!

As I scrolled down and saw something ontop of the dome at MIT I new exactly what it was and were.
That is the best thing I have seen on this web site all year.
Many people did not even know what yesterday was, thats a shame, hell many did not even recognise Dec 7th. guess they are just not into the history of this country/the world.

I remember seeing a photo many years ago were the student had put a MIT security car up there. No one could figure out how they did it.
