A man stands on top of Stonehenge as the sun rises over Salisbury Plain on June 21, 2006 in Amesbury, England. Police estimated around 17,000 people traveled to watch the sun rise over the 5,000 year old stone circle to start the longest day of the year. The all-night party to celebrate the Summer Solstice passed with only four arrests being made.

Do you suppose the photographers egg these guys on? "Psst, hey, buddy, go stand on the top."
