|Now This is the Kind of People I Could Watch!|
I made a joke earlier today about the concept of people watching (implying that the only time I watch people is at strip clubs.) Personally, I find the idea of people watching as an actual pastime rather galling. Sure, most anthropological & behavioral research is essentially people watching, but that’s done under controlled conditions or with a rather specific and educated focus.
Wouldn’t it be funny, or at least just weird, if some insane people watcher decided the people around him were just too boring and took to engineering situations so that what he watched would be more entertaining?
