Time travel in Singapore


How come they have it and we don't?

That's my question.

Long story by Shibani Mahtani in yesterday's Wall Street Journal short: "A street artist known as 'Sticker Lady' has mounted a challenge to this city-state's obsession with order. In her portfolio: stickers pasted onto traffic-signal buttons with messages such as 'Press to Time Travel' or 'Press to Stop Time.'"

"Hey, if you think really hard, maybe we can stop this rain."

Must've been a flashback, what?

I digress.

Below, a video that accompanied the WSJ article.

Becs, you're pretty amazing: that post about the gum wall (http://www.bookofjoe.com/2010/08/seattle-gum-wall.html; pictured below) was from nearly two years ago and indeed it's in Seattle.

Hm. Just recently watched "A Town Like Alice". The only reason the refugees wanted to get to Singapore was so they could go home to England...oh - and get away from the Japanese who imprisoned them.

Just think what the Singapore courts would do with that (ew) chewing gum wall (Seattle? Portland?) or some ad agency that painted penguins on the sidewalk.
