Internet Cafes are Weird

Guy next to me seems to be switching between playing chess and imbibing hardcore porn (a bit like a more explicit version of The Thomas Crown Affair). I came in to the internet cafe this morning and did some stuff, went out, had lunch, watched a movie, posted a letter etc and came back, he's still here doing the same thing.

Do you think he's using the porn as a cover for playing chess, rather than the other way round?

Guy right next to me seems to be very keen on a site called Foot Worship. Well, he's gone now, I didn't want to write that while he was here because he could easily see my screen. Obviously the fact that I could see his screen didn't bother him one bit.

No reason why a man can't worship a foot. Come on, what happened to religious tolerance?

Excellent, Brother Baboon. In the First United Church of Dissensus, intolerance will not be tolerated!

"What kind of places do you go to? It sounds like some kind of bizarre netherworld."
Well, Dalston mainly.
Having said that they are weird though it seems that there is a depressing normality to the weirdness ie it's just lots of people looking at porn in public. Who was it that said how boring mad people are?

Well, I get the feeling that some of these places are effectively taking that role here although they shut at night. More like care in the community I guess.

The guy next to me is looking at a site called Men In Pain - his leg is practically touching mine and he's almost certainly got an erection right now.

Can he see that you're typing about him?

Kind of weird to look at a site like that in public ain't it?
