I DO NOT Condone This!





It's not surprising that someone has figured out how to hack electronic roadside signs. But you have to admit, it's pretty ingenious--NOT TO MENTION DANGEROUS AND ILLEGAL!

Clever. Very clever, but stupid.

Eventually we're going to find out who did it and then they'll be in BIG trouble. Still, it was a good idea, but NOT something I would even consider doing!

That's hilarious! I never would have even thought of that. It's great. When's Oona gonna do it? It could be something she does in order to help the Irregulars escape from someone chasing them out of the city.

Oooh... I know what I would say!
"Panda power"
"Trenchcoats ahead"
"No newspapers"
"Turn off your cell phone"
"That means YOU"

The first thought in my head was, "I wish I could do that! Sweet!"

The second thought was, "I don't want to be arrested."

THE SYMBOL FOR I-Hacked.com IS ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE KIKI STRIKE SYMBOL!

I would make it say,
DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT.
To make people feel guilty about whatever they're thinking about. xD
Ah well... I'm not the type of person to do illegal things.

The website has instruction for building a hovercraft, if anyone is interested;; click misc (lowish down on the left side), and then random stuff. It's on the list.

This one guy at the local high school put a road sign like that that said "will you go to the prom with me shannon?" that's cute, but i like the zombie thing better. tell us if the people who did that are caught. i want to send them flowers!;)

This was done in Austin, TX over the weekend. The road sign in question was very close to BookPeople. This makes me wonder if it was one of my Austin Irregulars from camp last summer?

I too "Do Not Condone This!" But it makes me chuckle.

My boyfriend told me tonight that these were in town, and I immediately thought hm, funny, that was in Kirstin Miller's blog. Funnily enough, this is NOT one of the ones in Austin. While I'm definitely not condoning this either, I WOULD like to say that the one the boy saw was on a detour sign that's been up for, like, eight months.

I also suspect Irregulars.

I could just hug the person(s) that did this!

Of course chastising them afterwords for endangering public safety

Ha ha ha I read this a while ago before posting and I brought it up in class and I was like "Yeah, they're really easy to hack they have very easy wiring" and everyone looked at me weird (or just flat out stared at me) so I said "Not that I would ever do that or know anyone who would....*cough cough*" xD Everyone thinks I'm a hacker now....
