SO...MANY...

DALEKS! A mass gathering of the monstrous, Machiavellian, metallic machines took place in Manchester recently, in an attempt to create a new world record (a world record of awesomeness, that is).

Seriously though, the BBC has a small article here, and this Flickr user has tons of great photos. Personally, one of the most interesting aspects to the Daleks is how little the design has evolved over the past 45 years. In fact, the 2005 season introduced the first major change to the overall design, and it's still quite minor in the grand scheme of things. I'm impressed with the restraint the Doctor Who design team has shown.

Now, if only the designer of the new AT&T logo had taken a cue from them...

Classic - the guy with the "exterminate me" sign pinned to his back. Now what about some more monkeys??? Can we have some more monkeys please?
