The World United As I Played Mass Effect 2

On Sunday, May 2, at 11am Eastern Time, I was playing Mass Effect 2. My wife took a photo. At the same time, around the world, more than 10,000 of other people snapped photos too. This is what they were doing:

In Hawley, Pennsylvania, one person was solving a Lost jigsaw puzzle:

In Las Vegas, Nevada, a homeless man stood with his possessions:

In Santa Barbara, people prepared a makeshift beach memorial for American soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan:

In Hanoi, Vietnam, men were breakdancing:

In Kaski, Nepal, a Toyota SUV went on sale:
