111 Anniversary of Jiao Tong University

Today is the 111th anniversary of Jiao Tong University. Congratulations!

Design Change (Error) of the 100 Anniversary Monument

Talking about the anniversary, it reminds me of the 100th Anniversary Monument. Look at the monument in the middle of this picture:

If you look closely enough (well, not on this picture), on the surface of the monument, there are a lot of small stairs around it. On the back, the introduction on the stone said: “The 100 stairs reflects the 100 year history of the university”.

Well. Next time, if you want to, count how many stairs yourself. The reality is, there are only 75 stairs on the monument!

What a major bug of this monument! I suspect at the very beginning, the design was a monument like a square. Then the shape changed to triangle, but the design change was not reflected to the stairs, so….

Anyway, happy anniversary.
