    I love the whole idea of flash mobs, particularly when they're harmless and they appear to be completely pointless. I always smile when I see one (on YouTube or whatever).

    Same here! I think it's a fantastic cultural meme. We need a certain amount of collective Dadism. For one, it's hilarious, and it brings people from all walks of life together.

    I've been an unwitting bystander at several smaller-scale flashmob events, and it was like a sudden, giant social icebreaker. People who wouldn't have said a word to each other otherwise were suddenly talking and laughing about what had just happened.

    I'd love to be in on one :D

    They were blocking up the aisles in the super market, that would piss me off.

    Same here. If they were somewhere open where they didn't get in the way, then so be it.

    there is a national one coming up this weekend for Avatar

    the deal is if you are going, bring a fake paper camcorder into the theater. it's like an anti-anti-pirate prank. i've heard that the theater managers use nightvision cameras to spot cammers. sounds kinda big brother. anyway, im going to do it.
