As most of you know I'm a college student, and I have been on campus pretty much every day for the past three years. Today, for the first time, I noticed that the library clock tower plays the theme from Star Wars at noon on Thursdays. Three years and I've never noticed!

Thought the rest of you Star Wars fans would get a kick out of that.

I smell a college hack. I don't think it would eb that difficult to do if one was a bel to get direct access. It is not like clocks are designed with security features.

A very understandable oversight.
I was never out of bed that early when I was a student. [Wink]

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Actually the music department handles the songs the clock plays, it usually plays showtunes like "If I Were a Rich Man" or "Cabaret". The song choice is also a little more random than I thought and it plays Star Wars every other Thursday or so. (I talked to the library folk.)
