Just a little hack… by Celena C. '12

You never know what you'll see on your way to class

Just a quick little footage of a hack I found this morning in Lobby 7. Sorry for the bad quality, I just took out my Blackberry and shot it!

    If only I had something like this in my university . . . These are the things that make MIT even more appealing to me.

    That sucker got ripped down so fast, by 11:00 it was toast.

  4. “The word hack at MIT usually refers to a clever, benign, and “ethical” prank or practical joke, which is both challenging for the perpetrators and amusing to the MIT community (and sometimes even the rest of the world!). Note that this has nothing to do with computer (or phone) hacking (which we call “cracking”).”
    Nice! At first, I didn’t understand what you MITians call ‘hack’. Then I found the IHTFP (Interesting Hacks To Fascinate People)website!!! Very Amusing!!!! Meet you at MIT soon!!!

    That’s a neat little hack. What does this have to do with ethical admissions though?
