Critical Mass on Friday employed flash mob tactics to take over the intersection in front of Flinders Street station at 6.12pm. Just as suddenly as it appeared, Critical Mass was reached and it proceeded as traffic on its regular tour of the city.

There are some cool pics of the mass on the intersection at Flinders Street; some well dressed and equipped cyclists complete with eSigns and a boombox; and of course the obligatory 'bike lifts'. Pity about the incident with the impatient motorist on Epsom Rd who nearly took out oncoming traffic as well as cyclists in the mass :-(
Oh well, he got what was coming to him when the accompanying bicycle police caught up with him...

I didn't take any unfortunately, as the instructions stated to blend in and not be obvious with a camera. I wanted to be in the mob so left the camera in the pocket. I did however get a great shot of the city as the sun was setting (even though it was from a cheap digital camera). Photo's at Sunset as SMS received and Sunset over Melbourne from St. Kilda Road

17:24 clicked over and out came the yellow gloves pointing upwards. Just amazing to see all the poor innocents crossing the intersection, seeing us on the steps and stopping dead in their tracks, mouths aghast at what was happening... And then by 17:25 all traces were gone.
Troy's already posted video of the event. The wonders of modern publishing technology...

This fascinating chapter written by Deborah Gordon in her book called
Ants At Work - How an Insect Society is Organized explains a lot about these intereesting creatures. An interesting little world down there in the ground...
Many thanks to Troy for helping with the night, and to everyone who came last night and thanks again for my lovely cards and gifts. I had a really great time :-)
Now, back to the kitchen to get another glass of water...

It seems that The dullest blog in the world is in danger of becoming too interesting...
It's been Yahoo site of the day, there's been a feature in the New York Times and we've had many thousands of extra visitors. But is all this attention in danger of making the the dullest blog in the World too interesting? [www.wibsite.com/wibblethorpe]
Stay tuned for further Brent rantings... :-)
