Yes LiB...she just comes and sit on me. That makes complete sense
Anyways, thanks for derailing a perfectly functioning thread. Can we please get back on topic and direct our attention away from Porsch's wishful desires.

Re: Continental European Spatial Awarness

I like this thread!

First to LIB:

Since I moved to Barça, I found that my shoulders don't hurt anymore! (Not kidding)

To Porsch: What do you complain about? I am a magnet for people to sit next to me!

When did I complain! I was just informing LiB that the more brown you are the less likely one is to encounter said spatial awareness problem.

That's nonsense and only feeds your perceived sense of racial prejudice...all I'm saying, that they don't sit next to you, because there is no space next, in front or besides you.

Damn, I thought it was just my super-manly wide shoulders. I have to pre-emptively swerve all the time in this country.

Wait...I'm insulting Switzerland and LiB is defending it?

I never had such experiences in Glasgow (of all places) or any other place for that matter.

There is more than enough leg room for someone to sit in front of me and as I explained the seat diagonal to me is free of any porsch1909 matter.

Re: Continental European Spatial Awarness

What's kind of funny is when you're at a London airport and you try to adopt to the "walk on the left" policy but you end up bumping into all the darn Europeans then.

Re: Continental European Spatial Awarness

Please proceed.. it's been a very long day, time for a smile

I'm phobic in crowds and dislike being brushed up against.
In Europe it really does happen much more than in the States
More often than not, a train ride or flight turns into a long conversation as people usually start chatting.. don't mind that part, quite nice actually
Pay no attention to color though.. it's the eyes and smile that spark a contact regardless of gender or ethnicity.
As long as I don't get stepped on.

Interestingly enough, there was a study (must find it for y'all) regarding touch and response.
It seems that it depends on the culture. What is acceptable in some countries is considered disrespectful in others.
