Hey, I used to do janitorial in the HFAC as well. I never got to the roof, but all of the basements and sub-basements are pretty cool. That thing goes way lower than most people would ever guess.

And I'm not talking about the Kimball Tower, it's the other building. I can't remember the name of it for the life of me, but if you go all the way up one of the staircases you can go right past the top floor and find a locked doorway. There's a small window in the door, and you can see a bunch of darkly ominous equipment with a couple of blinking red lights. And I can confirm this, because this guy totally told me: that's Rex E. Lee's brain.

See, that's why janitorial and security jobs are the best. You get to go places that no one else gets to see.

Speaking of crazy jobs, I have a friend who is a professional stalker at the BYU bookstore. Not to blow his cover or anything...but he gets to wander the bookstore for hours and breathe down customers' necks.

I got to do a booksigning there and I had to laugh everytime he passed me, trying to pretend that he was browsing the bookstore...for hours...

Is he just looking for shoplifters? Or marriageable young ladies?

Maybe both... ;D

One of my roommates is a psychology major and she did an experiment on students in the library...she got into their personal space...and basically stalked them. She got some good reactions too.

Oh, and she has an awesome lab in the Kimball (well, I don't think it's her lab anymore, since she just finished the experiments), but she hooked students up to some sort of lie detector thing (I totally have to get the details), but they would actually watch them from the other room with a secret camera as they asked them questions. Now, I totally wished I could've been a victim in that case.

I got to go to the lab really late at night and work on editing my last book while she tallied the results of the experiment. We would leave like in three in the morning and see security guards and try to act casual...just in case we weren't supposed to be there.

I've got to visit some other labs there too (not in the Kimball, some science building). Anyhoo, tons of fun. Sure hope the BYU FEDS aren't monitoring this site.

and of course Kimball Tower.


Feigning ignorance I have to admit, I'm suprised that BYU felt compelled to name a tower after my cousin. Just don't let him know!;)

Well, THAT'S part of the conspiracy, see. Now, we're getting somewhere!

The only time we had to stop students was in the Benson building (they had to have their ID badges) and if they were rollerblading on campus. So you were probably OK. When I worked the graveyard shift (1-5am) there were people on campus at all hours of the night. Especially the couples camped out on the vent in front of the Kimball Tower.

Okay, so tell me what's going on? I was talking to my friend on my cell phone, and I was reaching into my cupboard to grab a can of soup, and then I rested it on the microwave and the microwave turned on!!! Wha?!!!

She told me to do it again, and I wouldn't for the longest time because if I died she would totally blame herself since she suggested it and then I talked about how it would be the perfect ending, blah, blah...and so then she rushed over and tried it while talking to me on the cell, and nothing happened. So, then emboldened, I tried the exact same set-up and nothing, hmmm? Then I looked like I was crazy.

And it's kinda funny, but I know when my cell is going to go off if it's on my desk, because then my alarm clock will go off a little bit (it's one of those radio things), and it sets the radio off a little.

Is this major radiation or what? I'm gonna die in about sixty years, I just know it!

Unless your like 12, dying in 60 years would make you average lifespan.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Just guess where I went????

Alright, I didn't think you could. I just went on a two hour tour of Provo City Towers. It is the most awesome place in the whole wide world! They still use it for electricity (but just to cap off the demand, since only about 2% of the electricity in Provo comes from there).

They mostly use the tower's height for cellular phones, and the weather station, AND voice mail and stuff like that. I just thought it was an awesome place AND I'm so glad that I finally went to see it. I'm definitely using it in my Prank Wars book, yup!
