    Weird. He looks like someone I used to know in school.
    I can`t remember the guys name though.

    Still pretty interesting.

    That was really would all of that happen all like that? I call bull-poo to the relatively chilling part and guess what hypothetically I could find his address easy and blow his brains out...but im not.

    That is kinda chilling, to think you could be working on some pots and then suddenly come out to find a mob of people outside and then be killed.

    Ausitnjay you are aware that earlier this year in england someone stupidly posted their parents house adress on a public facebook page and announced there was going to be a party in a few hours, they attempted to remove the post but the damage had already been done. Several hundred people turned up and wrecked the house killed the pet goldfish, urinted on the floors and got into fights until the cops turned up.

    That *hypothetical* story starting to sound a bit less like *bullpoo* as you put it now???

    There`s currently a thread on /b/ with a link to this video saying "Make this happen". It`s already too late.

    yeah.... sorry, but people being people I don`t think that has a real chance of happening; instant global communication or not. Not impossible, but so highly unlikely that in terms of the "being no-one" to "being killed" POV of the woman, this hypothetic tale doesn`t mean anything and is merely a tale of randomness.

    I find this entirely plausible, if rather unlikely. It is a string of random occurrences, but each occurrence (excepting flash mobs turning into deadly riots)happens many times a day. Videos go viral, people post public info and /b/ just IS.

    I`m not sure why people are calling this impossible, bullpoo or anything else...unless they are entirely out of touch with reality.

    Had he said that this was a true story, I wouldn`t be surprised at the least.

    Flash Mobs are real, and while this was portrayed as an accident, imagine what you could do on purpose?

    People are missing the point. That didn`t REALLY happen, he was just pointing out that it could. I feel cheated, I thought it was real right up until he admitted it.

    He`s not saying this is likely to happen, only that it can, and couldn`t 5 years ago, and is more likely to happen now than 2 years ago. It`s supposed to make you think and appreciate, not judge.

    That was incredibly stupid. I understand the point, but his scenario was stupid. 4chan and the like have done a lot of big movements, and almost none of them have resulted in a bunch of people showing up. He assumes that 6 million people are just going to show up to her house, who dont know the area? Stupid. This kind of thing would take massive organization.

    he`s assuming that thousands of people are spontaneous enough, not lazy enough, and have enough free time to randomly go to the house of some random chick from the internet....

    i`ll admit i am an avid internet user...but if i found out that something like this was happening within five miles...i prolly still wouldn`t...i`m just too lazy...
