How many students does it take to change a light bulb at MIT?
Five – one to design a nuclear-powered bulb that never needs changing, one to figure out how to power the rest of Boston using that nuked light bulb, two to install it, and one to write the computer program that controls the wall switch.

MIT is a campus obsessed by brains. If you do not relish the odd academic challenge and the daily competition that springs from being surrounded by America’s brightest – this is not the place for you.
