The Anti-Sit

The wonderful architecture blog Transfer is the home of The Anti-Sit Archives, an astonishing collection of, well, urban ass-deflecting devices. [thanks to iconomy]

I haven't looked at the Anti-sit archives. But I will. I saw it posted in MeCha but....time gets away. Transfer is cool, yes.

I won't flag it. There's linky goodness there. Maybe others can post other helicopter or aerial photo sites huh?

Doh! is right. I won't mind if this gets deleted as long as someone reposts the Anti-Sit collection. Deal?

Flag away.

Yeah, mediareport, we're all in danger of being a step behind peacay when it comes to this type of thing. I think it's because he's halfway around the world.

I'm loving the anti-sit archive. How painstakingly comprehensive. As a companion site, I'd like to see photos of the various contraptions used to booby-trap benches so they can't be slept on.

[I edited the post to be an anti-sit post, let me know if it looks okay. carry on.]

Sorry, jessamyn, I'm seeing a rogue comma in there after "Transfer." Oh, and the tags may need some adjustment.

Why is there such organized action against my bottom? Are building owners and architects so cruel and inhumane that they view sitting a crime? Does that mean that simply by parking it in an area of contention that my ass might become a symbol of resistance?

I think it's more to do with keeping riff-raff away no? 'They' don't want to encourage or invite or allow those who don't have seats in their very own homes to down cheeks and loiter.

This one is brilliant in its simplicity.

I was more worried that it'd fall through the cracks because of the recent "MeFi's stealing from us!" silliness at Metachat, and then guess I got a little too excited at the Mexican photography. Anyway, thanks for the fix, Jessamyn. If you can, killing tags #1, 2 and 4 is probably a good idea, too.

We sincerely regret the inconvenience.

No they don't. If they did, they'd have some sort of temporary solution for sudden spikes in hits to their pages.

Oh and double doh! for not realizing we can kill our own tags.
