Reporters write compelling article about making an invisibility cloak.

New York- Today, reporters at the city's most prestigious newspaper office kept working as usual as protestors from the Occupy Wall Street movement set up a base camp in their building.

A protestor who goes by Greg stated that he and a few of his friends just casually walked in the office just to use the restroom when they noticed not one journalist was looking out the window wondering what was going on within the city.

"It was strange," he said, "I would think thousands of people protesting would make bigger headlines than we are."

Slowly over the course of several days, Greg and his friends began hanging out in the newsroom, chatting up reporters, and seeing for themselves what they were all writing. In the process, they also started sleeping in the halls, using their cafeteria to have the lunches brought in by volunteers and borrowing a few of the computers so they could Photoshop more signs for the movement.

One protester we'll call "Sam" has gone beyond this, he has borrowed the office of the Head Editor and some of his clothing. No questions have been asked of him, however he has received several phone calls from Al Jazeera, who has actually interviewed him and several others.

However, despite all of this, the journalists came and went, stepping over protestors and shaking a few hands with the better dressed ones while on their way to cover breaking stories such as Christie deciding not to run for President, the Yankees ball game, the health benefits of eating sesame coconut bars, Joe Jonas becoming a man, the new iPhone, and a very strange animated fruit and how it's good for technology.

When asked, Greg said that they plan on staying in the newspaper office and setting up camp their until the reporters start noticing them and their movement.

"How they don't notice us is beyond me," Greg said, "Maybe once their heads are out of their own asses, they'll pay better attention to what really matters in the world."
