rabble rousers in my town

1/2 these folks never heard of a flash mob till this
It is much more powerful to seek Truth for one's self.  Seeing and hearing that others seem to have found it can be a motivation.  With me, I was drawn because of much error and bad judgment on my part. Confronting one's own errors and bad judgment is a very life altering situation.  Confronting the errors and bad judgment of others is usually hypocrisy.

Wasn't there a recent case where the shoppers freaked out and the mall they were "flashing" got locked down or something?

Yeah, the same mall that had the huge fire a week or two before. But it wasn't the shoppers who freaked, it was the aw-thor-i-tees. Apparently, the group planning to do the flash mod Hallelujah Chorus announced it ahead of time, and by T minus 20 or so the food court was so overcrowded the aw-thor-i-tees ordered the mall evacuated. They later did the chorus in the parking lot.

I know of two, that I've seen on YouTube.  Is this the latest trend of the week?  One I can't disapprove of.  (Though, some YouTube comments are ugly.)

They did one of those deals over at Ohio State, even got Gordon Gee (the university president) involved.  Kind of a fun thing for people to do.

On the Youtube thing, it's one of my favorite sites, but I don't even mess withthe comments.  Idiots all the way...
