``All tech men carry batteries'' is a classic line that originated with a previous, failed, attempt to hack the Harvard-Yale football game. MIT students burried primer cord underneath the Harvard field in an attempt to burn MIT into the field during half-time. Unbeknownst to the hackers, the cord was discovered by a groundsman before the game. During the game the pranksters, wearing trench-coats lined with batteries on a fair-weather day, were apprehended while searching for the cord they had left in place. In the aftermath, while pleading that the evidence against them was purely circumstantial, it was asserted that all tech men carry batteries.

This escapade is detailed on page 103 of The Journal of IHTFP.
