Getting them used to going places for no reason could be beneficial to the military.

I can support conditioning like that.

200 people and nobody knew who organized it or what the plan was? Businesses should use this in lieu of conventional advertising. "Okay everbody, meet up at to the Lauderhill Mall food court and order Big Macs! EPIC!1!"

Or terrorists who want to avoid security at crowded venues could just tell a teen flashmob to gather 'round their pile o' pressure cookers. A crowd of 200 suggestible people provides so much potential for abuse!

Meatsim1: Little known fact: your right to assembly refers only to DIY furniture

On private property your rights change depending on the will of the property owner. If I go to steamworks with only a leather jockstrap and bacon flavored condoms pay my entry fee and go work out with the free weights nobody will have a problem, if I do the same thing at planet fitness the cops will be called

I imagine the employees at the mall watching the teenagers arriving like crows landing in the playground behind Tippi Hedren.

ParagonComplex: I wonder if I could encourage people via social media to give me copious amounts of cash for no apparent reason? That'd be pretty great. Don't steal my idea. Actually, I'm not greedy, let's pool our collective social engineering skills, coupled with the power of Fark, and get even more money.

They already invented Kickstarter.
