The Stealth Hippopotamus: Or some kids where having some fun with rockets.Lord know we did.
Gonad the Ballbarian: Well on a side note, the library in the background is slowly sinking into the ground because the designers failed to factor in the weight of the books into the plans.../it's true//it's on the 'net
Rivethead: You should always wear a gas mask when looking at a downed drone visiting a California college campus. ALWAYS.

Ed Finnerty: I'm guessing an remote-controlled device with a camera that was attempting surveillance of the women's showers. Porky's 2012, if you will.

Herbie555: sidgates: General Atomics is about three miles from UCSD.Not even that far, there's a small research reactor almost literally across the street from the north end of campus. (Across the street, then part of the GA campus, so maybe 800 yards away?)CSB: I've seen that reactor spike and scram, in person. (They do it to impress the HS kids touring the facility)That said: This story is relatively minor on the scale of "Art Projects slash Hoaxes" that have managed to seriously piss off people on the UCSD campus.The guy who posed a perfectly-constructed construction project sign (mimicking the style of signs all over campus that showed an artist's rendering of some new research building under contstruction, etc.) of the "Giant Glass Pyramid" that was going to be constructed over the Sungod statue managed to REALLY upset people. It made some of the local talk-radio News stations before word got out that it was a hoax.
