    I thought MIT students were supposed to be smart?

    They're also known for pranks. Some people, it would seem, just don't have the knack for it... :roll:

    Where did you get the idea that this was a prank?

    Security is at fault because they arrested here. It's only art right?

    But think about if they let her go through. She would be complaining about the bad security and how someone with something that looked so much like a bomb could get through.

    I think she was setting Logan up for failure no matter what the outcome was.

    They could of shot her to prevent her from reaching the detonation button when they first saw the setup. I guess things could of been worse huh.

    ALSO,

    By conducting her little prank she may just have distracted security long enough for a real threat to present itself.

    WTF is wrong with people?

    Yeah, it would have been even funnier if she was in a burqua and shouting alluha ahkbar as she went through security at the airport, huh?

    Still not sure where you guys are getting the report that she tried to go through security. Also, what makes this different from a kid's light-up shoes?

    I guess nothing. I never really thought about that before. Now I see. Yes, the men with submachine guns should definitely "light" up the 5 year old kids with light-up shoes.

    Career day. TFG I was home this week and not in Boston.
    Too bad nobody got to play Terry Tate on her ass.
    MIT students also like to sleep on benches using their text books as pillows in the middle of the day.

    She claims it was "art", yet there was certainly some mischievous intent. It sounds to me like it was an attempt at being funny and/or clever which failed miserably.

    This instance IMO is the same as the SCOTUS ruling regarding someone yelling "Fire" in a crowded theatre.

    How do you know there was mischievous intent? If she was going to pick up her friend like she claims, why not show off her most recently completed project? I just don't really understand why anyone would think this is "funny and/or clever," so I don't understand the prank angle. I would understand her not being familiar with Boston's ridiculousness (Just starting her second year in college away from Hawaii) and wanting to show off. Maybe she's just stupid, but I find intent hard to swallow.


    EDIT:

    no this is what MIT students do for fun... much less "panic" inducing, and very entertaining...

    mit hacks

    or the blackjack team, who by the way are pema-banned from just about any casino.

    The trooper, joined by others with submachine guns, confronted her at a traffic island in front of the terminal. :roll:
