YouTube user raepmykipz has been wreaking havoc on a UK Christian TV show by pranking a regular segment where they read viewer emails aloud. While a little off topic for this site, these videos are really funny.
Those crazy MIT hackers have struck again with a new hack on the Great Dome. This time the pranksters attached the first seven notes of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up,” essentially Rick Rolling all of Cambridge.
Of course there is a rich history of “hacking” at MIT and you can read about all the old classics at hacks.mit.edu. The Great Dome is a popular target– the R2D2 and police car hacks are among my favorites from the past.
There’s a great book documenting all of the best MIT hacks (which by the way is the campus term for pranks).
