MIT: Now Accepting Complete Idiots!

The Face of Stupidity
Meet Star Simpson. Star's a nineteen-year-old Electrical Engineering major at MIT -- so I guess that makes her smart or something.
Well, maybe not. From the AP:

BOSTON - Troopers arrested an MIT student at gunpoint Friday after she
walked into Logan International Airport wearing a computer circuit board and
wiring on her sweatshirt. Authorities call it a fake bomb; she called it art.

Ummm, yeah. "Art."

You know, if I were going to strap something that looks like a bomb to my chest and run my way through airport security, I'd make sure that I did it at the airport where two of the flights that were hijacked on 9/11 originated. Yeah. That makes sense.

Then again, isn't it nice to know that one of America's elite universities (allegedly) has such high admissions standards.
