CheshireCatCO writes "Pranksters at Carleton College in Northfield, Minn., turned Goodsell Observatory on campus into R2D2 overnight Wednesday. In the morning, the observatory played droid sounds and moved its 'head' back and forth, a la R2."

  • I only wish I could see it in person.
    • Sadly, the administration took it down fairly quickly. It was up for several hours (minimum, 2-3, since that's how long I saw it up). But it's just a fun memory now.

      • So, they didn't appreciate the decoration? I'd feel insulted if I were the artist who'd worked so hard on it.
        • More likely, they didn't appreciate the insurance liability of not at least appearing to disapprove of such shenanigans. Students getting up onto roofs, for example, probably makes insurers have fits.

Are you having fun yet?
