Czech latent Discordians face jail for nuclear mindfuck

Possibly one of the most awesome mindfucks I have heard of in a while.

'Nuclear' TV hackers face trial

A group of Czech artists who inserted a nuclear explosion into a national weather broadcast have been told by a prosecutor they could be sent to jail.

The six hackers are accused of tampering with equipment during a live panoramic shot of mountains last June.

A flash of bright light could be seen followed by a fiery mushroom cloud on the horizon.

The group, who last month won an award from Prague's National Gallery, face charges of spreading false information.

Now, be honest with yourself...faking a nuclear explosion on live TV is pretty damn incredible. I hope these guys get off. Not least because I want detailed notes on exactly how they did it. Purely for research purposes, of course.

Awesome. I saw it on teh internet a while back, but didn't realize it was from a live news feed.

Yeah, its rather impressive. A few people on PD.com have been trying to figure out exactly how they did it, but since I have found their Myspace, I'll be able to ask them myself (assuming they're not all in prison and someone is answering the mail).
