    Pretty much! Brought back memories of uni days when we'd go for long walks at absurd hours with no-one else out and about, the town, campus, hospital and student neighbourhoods eerily quiet save for occasional birdsong, seemingly abandoned.

    Thousands of protesters have called for a giant helium balloon shaped like Donald Trump as a baby to be flown over the capital during the President's visit to the UK.

    The six metre tall balloon has been crowdfunded by members of the public and is expected to be a focal point during protests against the trip.

    Mr Trump will make a three-day visit to the UK that will begin on July 13.

    Around 53,000 people are planning to attend the official protest against Mr Trump's visit to the UK.

    Among them will be the organisers behind the giant inflatable balloon Trump Baby.

    Almost £8,000 has been raised to fly the balloon over the protests in Parliament Square.

    This makes me think of a 28 Days Later; walking around empty streets during the "day".

    Build a Bear is a store/company that allows you to design, build and stuff your own personalized "bear". They do other things like pokemon, my little pony, star wars, etc. But the bears are the draw. Most options start in the $30 range, and addons can run purchases into the hundreds.
    Pay you Age was exactly that. Allowing you to get $40 bears stuffed for as a little as a $1.


    It turned into total fucking anarchy. But my kids got their bears (actually a unicorn, Beast, and a dragon) and a story to pass around. A picture similar to what I took up above was shared via the news with us dead center in it.
