About your smarts -- you ought to know that, statistically, Hackers
(like the ones on this list) have IQs between 135-170.  And I know that
a couple people here have PhD's in Mathematics and do research in Math
subjects that would make your head spin, so I don't recommend showing
off your l33t math skills.

And about your "popularity":

I'm in college, and we still have Toga parties, and we still yell 'Toga!
Toga!'  Sorry to bust your bubble.

Just an FYI.  In most states, violent trespassing can be met by the
property owner with violent force, so I don't recommend any violent
trespassing like you're dreaming.

Also, being that most of us are experienced hackers, we probably have
security systems setup so that you would be met with lights, alarms, and
cops before you could crap yourself.  This means you would go to jail.
We would know who you were.  And we would be the ones laughing.
