Both pranks and hacking break the normal rules of order. If they turn out well, everyone, especially the creators, have a lot of fun. For years, the details will be recounted.
Yet, pranks and hacks can go very wrong. In our generation, those who crossed the line into illegal wound up in a courtroom. They could also wind up staying on the right side of law but dead. The same is happening with Millennials.
Paggi, as the New York Post reports, died while attempting to "hack the dome" at MIT. That has been a quest among many associated with that STEM-oriented institution of higher learning in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
They are smart and are on their way to or have already earned an elite academic credential. Since those degrees are associated with STEM, their value is way up. No question, the MIT-kinds of hacker perceive themselves as invulnerable.
Paggi's fatal accident during a hack won't be the end of fun. The takeaway, though, is that those who hell-bent on pulling one off should be aware of the risk. Fun doesn't insulate human beings from reality.
Of course, there will be those lobbying unofficially or officially to make any plan or actual attempt to "hack the dome" against the law. What Donald Trump got right is that there are already too many laws which don't make common sense. It's common sense that human beings require fun. Lots of it.
