Flash Mob Robs a 7-Eleven

According to CNN, "A 'flash mob' believed to have been organized on the Internet robbed a Maryland convenience store in less than a minute, police said Tuesday, and now authorities are using the same tool to identify participants in the crime."

This is kind of brilliant if you ask me. Yes, the Internet. Look there.

My dream in high school was to get a bunch of people together in khaki pants and blue polo shirts and just walk around Best Buy. I know, I know. PEOPLE SAY I'M A DREAMER. But it never occurred to me that we could have just walked out with TVs and washing machines.

What are you guys doing today at, say, 6:27PM?
