You have to admit. This bell tower was begging for an eye. Smile

No suspect in sight for Eye of Sauron prank



A replica of the Eye of Sauron from the Lord of the Ring series hungs from beams on the McFarland Memorial Bell Tower early Sunday Morning.

Those responsible with positioning the Lord of the Ring's Eye of Sauron replica on the McFarland Memorial Bell Tower remain unknown, said Skip Frost, acting Assistant Chief of University Police.

"Apparently some big Lord of the Ring fans hoisted it up there," said Frost. "It's actually pretty cute." [[url=media.www.dailyillini.com/media/storage/paper736/news/2008/09/23/News/No.Suspect.In.Sight.For.Eye.Of.Sauron.Prank-3446743.shtml]link[/url]]

I'm guessing they just couldn't resist. Compelled you might say. But by what or whom? Smile

It's only a matter of time before the 9 who did it are found.

"hungs from beams"? Must be English majors.

How can you be so sure it's the eye of Sauron and NOT the eye of Jennron? Razz

I thought Jennron went bankrupt due to unethical accounting practices? Rolling Eyes

Besides...

Jennron's eyes have been seen. They are never that red.

But maybe she was really, really focused on something, like getting some ring of power back.

I love the prank. Well done!!

Perhaps true, more than ten years ago...but both laws and mores have changed.
Absent Visine, how red are they now?

Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.
