Name readings? Fire Trucks!

MITIn other news from Cambridge, Bwog recently became aware of a most excellent method of commemorating the heroes of September 11th. How are MIT geeks so wonderful? Why is the Low Dome never graced by random objects? And how, how did they do it?

  • prankster says:

    @prankster I’m the one who took the picture :). Pranking is tough at CU because there is no space to prepare your works. Getting them on the dome is easy. If any of you know a large space where construction can happen easily, email

  • According to CBS says:

    @According to CBS “The students are the ones who put the prank up, but the school is in charge of taking the annual props down. This year, MIT police received a 15-page instruction pamphlet on how to take apart the fire truck.”

    This would perhaps explain how they got it up there.

      @MIT Hacks are legendary. and awesome.

  • stuff like this says:

    @stuff like this can happen at MIT, but never at columbia because MIT doesn’t have 4 security guards for every acre of campus

  • we're columbia! says:

    @we're columbia! let’s one-up MIT in the best way we know how — hold a protest. On the roof of Low.

  • ken says:

    @ken we need to bring back ken hechtman, master of uranium, last seen captured by the taliban, who was the last known mortal to ascend to the rounded heights of low.

      @actually Mariel did it just last year : )

      1. yep says:

        @yep True that. And Alex, I believe.
        Incidentally, Bwog posted a picture taken from the roof area sometime last year. That wasn’t Mariel, that wasn’t Alex, and that wasn’t a telephoto lens; nobody knows where it came from.

    @John K. The Low dome would collapse. That would be ironic.

    What should Bwog's new tagline be?
