Eye Contact

Buses. People. Eye contact. Bizarre clothes and odd behaviour.
have I got your attention yet?
Let me paint you a picture. It's a late-evening post rush hour bus, and everyone is doing what London people always do - zone out the rest of the world and pretend it doesn't exist. our basic ostrich mode.
Something happens ... an argument, a person with a tall orange hat, an orang-utan wearing bullet bandoliers, a pith helmet and a ukelele. Doesn't matter what, but OBSERVE...
I've heard of crimes committed in broad daylight to a teenager standing in the middle of a crowded bus, and not a voice says boo. I have prsonally got onto a bus in armour,wearing so many swords , daggers and whatnot they were banging on the seats as I went past ... not a comment. Not a sqeak.

God bless the suburban London public, we're all doomed.

lol we should be very afraid, this happens incredibly often in major cities! I think it's called the observer effect or something, there's a scientific name to it

Well to be perfectly honest, if I saw some guy wearing armour with swords and daggers on a bus, I'm not so sure I would say anything either. As a matter of fact, I would go out of my way to not make eye contact as well. Something about that whole picture... Let's just say, I prefer my head and neck intact!
