I'm most likely heading up around the 20th of August for Orientation, then classes start soon after that. Depends on whether or not I get into one the pre-freshman programs that they offer. As of right now I'm set on mechanical engineering, I'm looking to become an automotive engineer.

Right, I am sure a group of high school (guessing?) kids will not spend that kind of $$$ to rent a crane.. and also, that would be pretty obvious to the security, don't you think?! Hee hee..
My buddy has a boom truck, I think its good for 2000 pounds at full extension, and we wont be anywhere near full extension so we could use it but it would be loud and obvious to neighbours. Our school doesnt have security after school hours.

You have considered how much weight the roof could support haven't you? I doubt it would be so funny if the roof collapsed and killed someone.
Yes we have, we figured that a gutted car cant weigh more than 600 pounds, so it will be like 4 light people standing close together.


Anyways............this isnt a for sure deal yet so I cant promise pictures. I did go to a junkyard/pick N' pull today and had a look around but I think I should check out a scrap metal place.

Ha, grad school only, so not really qualified to give you advice on college stuff..

But just do stuff that you like and you will do well..

Remember to take 2.70

The Plan is off. One of our steps in gathering information was figuring out how much the roof can support, so one of my friends talked to a teacher about mounting his electricity class project, a windmill, on the roof and the teacher said you can damage the roof enough to make it leak just by walking on it.[]

this is where a lot of gum comes in. its as white as those light sensors. just walk around after class and block every sensor that will be in your way on the prank day. thats how I'd do it.

Its not that we cant break into the school bypassing the alarm system (there are door sensors too btw), its just that if we get caught doing that I can gaurantee charges will be pressed.

You could... lead a cow up the stairs. or put limberger in the heater, or let some snakes loose, or cover the building in a large jello blob.
