Hackers placed a Guy Fawkes mask, worn by the character V from V for Vendetta, over the blank face of the Alchemist statue early Saturday morning. The fifth of November is commemorated in Britain for the failure of the Gunpowder Plot led by Guy Fawkes to blow up Parliament, but took on a new meaning of anti-tyranny in the movie and comic.

Hackers hung a banner on the inside of Lobby 7 commemorating the fifth of November. The Latin is five words beginning with the letter V, meaning, “By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe” — a reference to the movie V for Vendetta.

An inflatable plastic ball — the Zorb — maneuvered by a person inside, rolled around Lobby 7 Wednesday evening. Mechanical engineering professor Alex Slocum ’82 said he brought out the Zorb, which was emblazoned with MIT’s logo, for fun.
