I used to sift through images of meaningful graffiti and this images would always come up. I have seen it in various eddited and none eddited forms and I think this is an edited version. For a long time I would disregard this image as I didn't understand it's meaning, you may think it's blatent but the other week I finally figured out what it really means. The graffiti is advising us, advising us to simply question what we are told because we beleive the mojority of things we are told with no quarry. Do you not find that strange? Here in England if you are caught peeing in a bush in a local park or something you are subject to a penalty of the law in the form of a fine. One of the most basic principles of human life, excreation is to some degree illegal. I find this truly disgusting especially when there are people out there forcing shit we don't need down our throat, but it's illegal to let that stuff out of your body if you are in a public place. The graffiti is telling us to question everything we are told and come to our own conclusions, because not enough people do. They obey the law, they pay their extortionate taxes and they work their shitty job just so they can be in a position where they can buy the crap being sold to them inbetween tv shows. Think about this for a second, for every 15 mins of television you watch 3-5 mins of that someone will be trying to sell you something. How did it come to this?

  2. I generally agree with you, but I'd rather not see everyone pissing in the streets. It's quite disgusting. I'd understand if it's an emergency, but generally we should keep our piss of the street.

  3. Yeah but I wasn't talking about the street, I'd say peeing on someones property probably should stay illegal but in a bush, in a park late at night when your staggering home from a night out, it's a victimless crime and the idea that you can face a penalty for that is pure stupidity

  4. its just cultural norms brah, for example spitting isn't considered 'nice', and for example, ejaculating is a basic principle of human life, does this mean i should be able to wack off at the bus stop? I mean come on

  8. Hiphop Rising: True but the majority of these social norms have been established by religion and when you look at them today are rather unjustified by todays standards. I mean why can't I wack off in a bus station, because it's disgusting? Well disgusting isn't a fact it is an opion so why are there laws based on some dudes opion? Perhaps thats a bad example, or perhaps I explained it badly but hopefully you'll see where I'm coming from

  9. really most social norms came around when people were beginning to form larger societies and that was when the main source of stress switched from survival to social stresses. Religion is actually the embodiment of those specific regions dealing with these stresses to maintain these social norms even with groups of people moving between regions.

  25. This is an awesome picture. I've done this before, not in that size, but in places people don't normally realise. Like on the Checkout at Walmart or somewhere. They only realise if they look close enough.
