“Doctor Who” Fans Hack Road Sign

This comes from my home state of Colorado, where some intrepid Doctor Who fans in Boulder seem to have hacked a digital road sign to display that drivers should look out for Daleks. It’s a good bit of advice, though I don’t think the Colorado Department of Transportation is specifically too happy about it. If you know about or have ever been to Boulder, you can pretty much bet this stunt was fueled by boredom and herbal narcotics. Still, it’s good to know Whovians are everywhere. You can read the full article from the Boulder Daily Camera here. Thanks a lot to my friend Ryan Grassmeyer for sending me this picture.

    from what i’ve heard, all it takes to hack these is to break the lock on the box containing the controle panel and just typing in the new message

    I accidentally went to Boulder on 4/20 one year. Completely forgot about 4/20, and as I approached it in my car, I just saw this huge cloud of smoke rising from the city.

  3. I knew that there had to be a logical reason for all the traffic delays and detours here in Colorado. This makes perfect sense to me.

    Didn’t something like this happen in Texas a few years ago? Someone hacked a sign warning people of zombies and that they (the living, not the mobile deceased) should head for colder climates. Someone’s been reading “World War Z.”
