So nobody took the bait...


Room 10-105.5 is the Vannevar Shrubbery Room, located in Building 10 of the MIT campus, just off of the Infinite Corridor. (It should be noted that the Infinite Corridor has since been proven to be finite in length, width, height and volume, however it remains unbounded in time.)



This was originally the entrance to room 10-105, the Vannevar Bush Room.



In 2004, the Vannevar Bush Room room was remodeled, which included moving the entrance around the corner to the adjacent hallway. In its wake, a conspicuous alcove was left behind, walled off and empty.

This would not stand.

In keeping with MITs long tradition of clever hacks and trickery, a group of crafty students worked throughout the night of 14 Sep 2004, constructing a new wall and doorway flush with the main corridor wall.




The following morning, a new room existed where none had been before:








The concept of the shrubbery, as well as the oil painting of the masked knight, is an obvious allusion to Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail, in which one of the minor side-quests which King Arthur and his group embark upon is the search for a nice shrubbery to place outside the castle. (One that looks nice, but not too expensive.)





For those who don't know, Vannevar Bush was a highly influential engineer and academic of the early to mid 1900s. He worked on the Manhattan Project, founded Raytheon, and was an early pioneer in the field in interactive computing and informatics. In 1945, he published a paper describing a theoretical system called Memex, proposing many of the fundamental concepts which make up what we know today as the World Wide Web. In the 1930s, he served as both President of MIT, and Dean of the MIT School of Engineering. His theories were cited as highly influential by such inventors as Douglas Engelbart (creator of the mouse and member of the ARPANET project), Ted Nelson (creator of Hypertext, and the visionary behind the previously mentioned Xanadu project), and many others.

You should go to the J Edgar Hoover building in DC. FBI HQ. The basement corridors are pretty darn infinite.

I was really impressed by the basement of the Richard J Daley Library on the campus of of the University of Illinois, Chicago. I spent a day roaming around down there about a year ago- lots of interesting stuff.

For those in the area, it's easily accessible from downtown / Loop via the Blue line at the UIC-Halsted stop. The campus as a whole is fairly ordinary, but it does have a couple of neat places to see here and there.


Next time I'm in DC I will check out the JEH building. I've done a couple of jobs there, but always in the Georgetown area. The only time I ventured downtown it was just to the Capital Mall / Smithsonian region.

My car got featured in one of the local car mags. Although the mag hasn't come out to Oki yet, my friends up on mainland took this cell picture for me.

It's not often they feature Gaijin cars.
