What I wonder is how do they get the time to do stuff like this? Perhaps they aren't actually as busy as they would have us all to believe.

When you are 19, this is an incredibly funny lark. Unfortunately, you do not appreciated the consequences.

Once upon a time, we thought it was a great idea to move a Senior Staff Member's Mini into the Main Lobby of the Faculty. Unfortunately we knocked over a rather valuable Bust in the process. They had a pretty good idea who had done it but never managed to prove anything.

Much the same thing

Wee Eddie. Following up on your story, many years ago a neighbour always left his motorbike in his front garden and the bike was a mess, never cleaned, loads of minor repairs needed etc. One weekend when he was away we put it in our back yard & spent 2 days making it look like new then wheeled it back. We never said a word and he never found out what had happened but he cleaned it every week after that.

This just makes me sad. But it certainly is possible, it's not like students are studying all day. Might as well put their knowledge to some use.
