Sometimes you find yourself surrounded, nay, invaded, by amorphous blobs (read 'other people') who flagrantly disregard you, your personal space, your companions, your conversation. Generally, YOU. And that's something I find annoying. Maybe I'm the only one? I don't know.
Then at other times you get totally surrounded by shitloads of naked people, cycling about, making all sorts of noise, and generally being TOTALLY NAKED with all their bits out on display. Right there. And the weird thing about that isn't the nakedness or the being surrounded by a whole bunch of nakedness. It's the fact that it's, well, more normal (and natural) than anything else and yet paradoxically totally abnormal to see that sort of thing because of the 'rules' that our society dumps upon us and the embarrassment factor that makes it so weird and great and celebratory.
So to conclude, more nakedness please! And I don't mean that in a dodgy way, I just think, you know, that it's a good thing. Personal freedom, expressiveness, a distinct lack of twattishness... It's all good stuff.
The moral of this story is that open-minded people are great (although if they play the bongos and sing really badly, yet obviously think their singing is THE BEST, then they don't count), and close-minded yobbish thugs (essentially the stereotypical flag-waving van-driving Sun-reading British male - it's only a stereotype because it fucking exists!) can go swivel. Although whoops! Silly me! I'm not being very inclusive here. Let's also include every person who makes no effort whatsoever to move even slightly out of your way while walking along the pavement, even forcing you to walk into the path of oncoming traffic, such is their disregard. And let us not forget practically every smoker ever, who without fail, WITHOUT FAIL, will always flick their fag butt into the street, and drop the foil and wrapper from their packet of smokes on to the ground despite there being a bin conveniently placed about 2 feet from them. AND any person who while walking along stops dead in their tracks to have a look around and have a sandwich/insert anything you like here frankly, then acts surprised that you nearly walked through their sandwich and had to make a frantic avoidance manoeuvre and ended up in a pile in the gutter as a result. They're crap too.
This one could go on and on, so I'll save more for next time. If anybody feels like having a cathartic moan or alternatively a big old celebration about nakedness in the comments then be my guest.
FYI - The nakedness was all to do with World Naked Bike Ride Day. Check the relevant link for all the info. Nakedness + Good Cause = perfect for Brighton. Although I'm still not 100% sure exactly what being naked has to do with anything, but still, MORE NAKEDNESS!
