Latest MIT hack...stealing Cal Tech's cannon.

According to the Cal Tech Cannon, MIT students posing as a moving company called Howe & Ser (get it? howitzer?) socially engineered their way past security and moved it to their campus with the addition of a giant machine-tooled version of their class ring, the Brass Rat, slid over the barrel. Absolutely brilliant. See their site for more images. See the Slashdot comments on this here.

Thanks to redhotwheels on Digg for pointing out that I can't spell for shit and had Cannon spelled wrong. It has since been corrected.

  • Stealing the canons of Cal Tech would certainly be even more impressive.

    Well, maybe not. If the theft was just IP theft, then it'd just be a debate over which school was better again. If they somehow deprived Cal Tech of the use of its canons, however, I would be greatly amused.
