Boston

Boston.

The ferry we took to see the USS Constitution. (part of the freedom trail, basically a history line that takes you through to city ending at Boston Harbor)


MIT, the reason we went to Boston. We took a tour of MIT to give Clint an idea of as far as grad. school goes. Super cool, campus runs right along the Charles River.

Stata building on MIT campus. They call this the Dr. Seuss building, it's huge.

The dome building on MIT campus. This is where most of the 'hacks' are done. (hacking=pranks, MIT started 'hacking' before it ever became a computer term) One of the best hacks was a group of MIT students took an MIT police car apart, somehow got it on top of this dome and then rebuilt it...all in one night. If you watch any news, the Hubble telescope has been a big deal lately with it's last launch and everything. A week and a half ago students built a replica of the Hubble and put it on top of the dome. Other years it has been covered in black with cut outs of eyes and a mouth. Kinda cool, even cooler that the school encourages students to do hacks. ( as long as it doesn't hurt property or people)
