Could It Be? Mosh Pits Follow The Rules of Collective Motion

Based on research conducted by James Sethna, a professor of physics at Cornell and grad student Matt Bierbaum–people in mosh pits act like a flock of circling birds.

This actually confirms something most punks have known for a while–despite the intimidating nature–mosh pits do not succeed if people enter them just to randomly hit people (yes, I’m singling out all you jocks out there). At their core, the movement is not based on violence, but a harmony all its own. Kind of makes sense.

Long live hard core. (video above is not the best (for showing mosh pits), but I couldn’t resist the song. also, for extra bonus I threw in “cooking with fugazi,” below. chock full of helpful cooking tips.
