“Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana” -- Groucho Marx

Humour A missed opportunity in our year of culture would have been the opportunity to recreate the Grand Central Station dance sequence from The Fisher King on the concourse at Lime Street. It lacks context sure but how impressive would it have been? There will be a Viennese Ball at St George's Hall which should be picturesque but not quite as -- post-modern.

Back at the Grand Central, a group of volunteers have staged the opposite. Two hundred and seven of them infiltrated the crowds then stopped still altogether in whatever position they were in at a predetermined time. Predictably the reactions of the crowd are the best bit of this video, although watch out for the frozen girl eating the banana whose willpower is clearly stronger than most humans. How's it possible to stand with a smell such as that just inches from your nose for five minutes?
