    LOL. I've been training the kids here at work for years. They stalk the halls, head down, apparently counting the carpet squares. A loud "GOOD MORNING!" will often cause them to jump suddenly and walk into a wall. The old geezers you learn to leave alone as they often will soil themselves.

    It is fun to play Phone-Zombie pinball too. See a zombie (head buried in cell-phone, earbuds jammed in, etc.) walking along in the hall, take his lane. His/her peripheral vision will cause him/her to make a mindless avoidance correction. If you time it just right, they'll move right into the path of someone else. You get 10 pts. for a collision, 5 pts for banking one off a wall and 1pt for a stumble. Loss of points if they actually look up.

    I was in London once. Stopped into a pub for a bite and pint. The very nice young lady who took my order spoke to me. I couldn't understand a word she said.

    She had red hair, so I suspect she was from Ireland. i tried speaking Japanese to her but she just looked at me as though I was speaking French or something.

    I finally resorted to writing on a napkin. She in turn wrote down her phone number. At least I think it was her phone number.

    what good was that going to do if I couldn't understand a word she said.

    But I decided that Londoners are very friendly.

    doesn't that entirely depend upon whether the participants happen to include a Dane?
