Oh, the time machine was unplugged?

Wish i could post pics from work and had the photoshopped version of the Liberty Tower design in the shape of the middle finger.

FTA:  Using a mobile phone, users can manipulate the lights on the spire and antennae, and even add sparkles or pulses of light to the iconic midtown buildings.

Yeah, no problems with that.

FTA: Online, he has described it as "a democratic and philanthropic call to action on the New York City skyline." The project is still in development, and users can join only if they receive an invite from a current user.

...a democratic call to power, by invitation only. Hmmm.

I was gonna say, all the speculation about how they'll make something inappropriate out of this... it's simple: they'll Morse-code dirty words.

Dittybopper's already on it I bet.
