About two weeks ago I was walking across campus at night and I looked up and saw this strange thing in the sky. That photo doesn’t even do it justice, but neither do my attempts at capturing it either.
I didn’t know what to make of this strange green laser coming from a building and going nowhere.
So I got down to some sleuthing and asked around about it. Someone told me it was trying to reach Mars, but I knew he was totally lying because I could clearly see where it ended. Someone else told me it was from a nightclub downtown, but I doubted that any club could afford to operate it night after night.
Anyway, exasperated by the answers I was getting, I took to saying “Man, I wish I knew what that strange green laser was” in highly populated areas. It worked!
Here’s the answer. It came from a security guard, pensively smoking a cigarette like a cowboy the other night.
I’d say that’s case closed. And it’s also pretty cool, too.
