No Urinating Here

Discussion in 'Street, Documentary, and Portrait' started by Robert Watcher, May 23, 2019.

  1. El Salvador has started cracking down on garbage being thrown onto the streets, with warning signs being posted all over the countryside. Apparently they are taking a similar approach to Urinating on the Streets (No Orinar Aqui) —- the Penalty for both being $114.29 USD.

    Although I think I laughed more at the specific amount of the fine than anything. One local concluded that they had the fine amount figured out in the old Salvadoran colón (replaced by the U.S. dollar in 2001) —— and just did a conversion from it to USD. That is about the only explanation that makes sense.

    We recently had a lady walking near the courthouse in Seattle who a bag of urine dropped from the Yesler overpass above her. Would this action be exempt from the fine? Inquisitive minds want to know.

    Urine, assaults have jurors avoiding

    According to this it seems like it hit the sidewalk, might have splashed her. From the article you can see the joy we have getting to court these days.

    Could do with a sign or two here. The French have no decorum at all when it comes to splashing out.

    This is Seattle you know, its pissing here all the time ...

    I wonder if that is a function of all the micro-breweries we have around here?

    (oh, my, what the heck kind of place have I run into? You people are worse than I am ... )
