What is this? This is awesomely insane! Does this happen every year? Is it organized or is it spontaneous? Would it be okay to have one in Santa Cruz, CA. The pillow fight seems so wonderful and I would like to know more about it!

There'd have to be something REALLY weird in the water to compel hundreds of people to spontaneously grab their pillows and rush to Union Square.

Boycott the Lion's Den. They are racist and inhospitable.

thanks for your interest in the pillow fight! :) it was amazing and unforgettable :)

we are investigating a material that will catch wind like feathers do and we think we can probably make a fun, cruelty-free event using large quantities of bubbles.

yay new york pillow fight :)

Can't think of many things I'd rather do than a bubble fight.

Damn Paul, you got some skills.

And who pays to cleanup this mess in the already filthy Union Square Park? NYC taxpayers?. How nice.

Wow. The people complaining about feathers making a mess must:

A) Not leave the house very much, at least not in NYC.
B) Need some real problems to complain about.

For those that might actually not be scared of having fun, there are some photos here.

Have you seen this before? It's a number guessing game: http://www.amblesideprimary.com/ambleweb/mentalmaths/guessthenumber.html. I guessed 40428, and it got it right! Pretty neat.

The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.

Posted by Amy | November 8, 2010 3:07 AM

From that you would get angry with your friends, we can conclude you still care about the friendship between you.

Only till my natural death.could I tell which of what I have been doing is right or wrong, so now I have to try to do well in everything, and then wait to die a natural death.

L'andouille de Guemene et l'andouillette bretonne sont des charcuteries bretonnes creees a partir de la ventree de porc : le gros intestin, les menus, l'estomac et le tout, sans adjonction de gras supplementaire ni de liants, mais du sel, du poivre, des epices et aromates sont ajoutes par la suite.

Great pics. That's a strange way for pillow fight. In the streets? LOL! Hope I can experience this someday.
