Remember flash mobs—that trend circa 2003 in which hordes of people gather in public, do something absurd, then vanish as quickly as they appeared? The Daily Nebraskan recently infiltrated the Lincoln Underground Flash Mob and writes all about it.
The mob's "Hungry Crowd" gathering, in which members, clad in black with Zorro-type masks, gathered on the steps of the University of Nebraska student union and "attacked" one member dressed in white, quickly turned to romantic clichés: One member asked another to marry him.
Finding a flash mob in the middle of Nebraska? Weird. Proposing to your girlfriend in the middle of it? Even weirder. —Christina Mueller
