Re: I miss this sort of behaviour...

a) This doesn't mean the govt doesn't want to create a culture of fear, mind. They try. Not necessarily with the big T, but also with "your kids won't be safe" and like hysteria.

b) Around people.

No, wait, that was someone else...

c) It's not everywhere - just almost. Besides, if it takes them more than a month to review all the tapes and figure out what went on *now*, what would adding more cameras do?

Admittedly that's not an argument that appears to hold much weight in the current political climate - but then, politics is a pile of bollocks anyway .

Bread and circuses. Bread and circuses. *sigh*

d) having bins doesn't create a climate of *using* them. Oddly enough, despite there being bins outside the tube stations in sarf lunnen, people still drop rubbish all over the streets.

*cough* that's probably enough bile, again, tho....

Re: I miss this sort of behaviour...

I feel guilty if I drop something in the street and don't pick it up.

I always blamed my Mum* for that but apparently it's a cultural thing. you, being a kiwi in London, probably have a clearer idea of how we get trained not to litter.

*My Mum is pom in NZ, so she got her training there. Weird.

So, um, what's the technical solution to aikidoka who drink a lot and therefore have a pungent and tangy miasma when they sweat?

Also, slippery wrists. Yick. Please fix with tech.

The slip factor is secondary to the ick factor. I suppose chalk would work.

Thinking ok, tech solution to how one requests that another person chalk their wrists so I don't have to feel their ickiness?
