Could we use this to play "Ă–sti, oder?"? For any random picture (which seems to be how that first link resolves), guess which side of the Wall the subject resided.

I say this as someone who was frequently asked for directions in East Berlin, so I intend no snooty fashion high ground. (Though for all my crimes, I never wore jeans with round pockets).

And this is pretty poignant on many levels.

On November 9, 2009, Berlin will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with a "Festival of Freedom", during which over 1,000 foam domino tiles over 8 feet tall will be stacked along the former route of the wall in the city center and toppled. - Wikipedia
