  1. wow, i can’t believe we even have that kind of equipment.

    also, i feel like this could potentially be an easy case. have any new recording studios shown up in dc lately?

  2. Someone is obviously pretty damn “stealthy” because that is a LOT of heavy equipment.

  3. In case you were thinking about it, I’ll save you the time–none of this stuff has turned up yet on Craigslist.

  4. I wonder if that will be made up for in increased lab fees or some other form of ridiculous charges on our tuition bills.

  5. i can’t imagine this could have happened without some sort of inside agreement. maybe a massive conspiracy involving a hefty payoff to the late-night security guards?

  6. Wow, that’s a lot of stuff to carry AND be stealthy. I hope this video can help you guys find your equipment.
