Let's do it!

This is my favorite story of the week, if not the month! As I look outside my window at the first snow covering the rooftops around me, I have the added delight of coming across an absolutely wonderful story:
"i-Pod flashmobbers dance in their hundreds at station

Hundreds of people descended on Liverpool Street station for the biggest ever turnout for the latest internet craze - mobile clubbing.

Armed with MP3 players loaded with favourite tracks the "clubbers" arrived on the concourse just after 7pm last night. Students, business people and office workers danced in silence as they listened to their iPods among commuters listening to announcements about late trains.

Details of the time and venue were sent by email. The event is similar to the flash mobbing movement pioneered in New York which involved large numbers of people gathering to conduct bizarre activities.

One commuter said: "It was entertaining if strange to see all these people gyrating to their own beat. It was the Soul Train arriving at platform one."

Does it get any better than this??? Wonder if we could get this happening in Flinttown??

BTW, visibility due to the snow, is greatly impaired!

What a great day!
