Latest MIT hack is pretty darn good.

Thanks to my good friend (and MIT alum) Pat for rubbing this one in my face. For those of you who aren't that familiar with MIT hacks, MIT has a long tradition of pulling elaborate pranks (known as "hacks") each year which usually feature some display of cunning engineering prowess and occasionally use Harvard as a target.

The big fuss in the video game world right now is the new game "Halo 3" being released, so in honor of the game MIT went to its favorite hacking target (the precious John Harvard statue) and suited him up like the Halo 3 main character "Master Chief."

I have to admit, this one was pretty good -- better than when they welded an MIT class ring onto his finger.
