UW Bulletin announced today that there have been several incidents where students have been disappearing within the Mathematics and Computer building on campus. According to the UW Campus Police, by the time the Police arrived at the scene, students have disappered from the location without a trace. However, they were able to obtain some important clues that might give them a lead to the investigation.
All students who went missing were students of School of Computer Science and Software Engineering program, and it appeared that, at the time of the incident, they have been working on the User Interface assignment #2. In this assignment, a combination of two words ("TAs", "rock", in this order) was to unlock a button on the interface that students could click on. Upon a closer look at this assignment, however, before students went missing, they were able to unlock a secret button with the combinations of words that formed the sentence, "You'll never get your midterms back! Muahahaha!".
UW Police was able to talk to a TA (who wished to remain anonymous) about these incidents. "I've heard about this legend that existed forever in the Computer Graphics Lab... There has always been some kind of secret way of unlocking a portal to an alien world. I suspect this assignment was the key to this portal, and smart students found this key."
According to this TA, the portal connects our world with the alien world of far, far away, which has been known as "Planet Gnimmel". Aliens in this world, called "Gninnies", are suspected to have come through this portal, and abducted students for secret experiments involving digging holes on the ground, running into walls and madly dashing towards the exits.
The staff of the Computer Graphics Lab were not available for any comments.
