Whoa, Man, Lights!

Dubbed the "Hippie Trap," a net-shaped set of LED light strips has been hung 10 feet above a sidewalk on Ashbury just south of Haight Street, with the express purpose of hypnotizing and capturing hippies wandering nearby. The project's creator, of bubble-stroller fame, claims that trapped hippies are then released in Mendocino to "forage for marijuana in their natural environment." Naturally, there's a webcam.
