Spike Away

Yesterday I posted about Paris metro etiquette rules, and then, by chance, I came across this. It's the "Spike Away" from artist Siew Ming Cheng who writes:

Trains are usually crowded during peak hours. Everybody will push each other to try and get onto the train. How can I protect my personal space? The idea was then conceived. "What if I wear a vest that is full of spikes?"

That's an unusual train of thought! (pun, unfortunately, intended). More details at CNet.

Paris Metro Etiquette Rules

The Parisian public transit authority has issued an illustrated etiquette handbook [PDF] for riders of the metro system. Nice idea, but I'm guessing that it'll only be seen by those who don't need to read it. [Globe and Mail]


Keep your armpits to yourself


No loud music


Don't hold the train up as you say goodbye


Don't shout into your cellphone
