They're watching in NYC

After some research and reading for a project, I had a lot on my mind and couldn't get to sleep. So I went for a drive, ended up washing my car and getting a Slurpee. As I'm walking out of 7-11, I notice a high school age kid, war walking with a laptop. Mind you, this was around midnight in a mixed zoning area (residential and commerical). I just stared, as he wandered down the block - I swear I could hear the pings of Kismet.
