    Currently enjoying being on two wheels in Copenhagen. I suspect there are a lot more bikes than people here.
    This is (part of) the bike rack at one the railway stations.

    Here's (part of) the one at the main station. Check out the double decker system.

    anyone here have any training in leadership psychology? you know, like having your hand twisted so theirs is uppermost during a handshake, that sort of thing.

    i've noticed a few senior blokes at work seem to have a poor sense of personal space. like standing just inside that edge of too close etc. are they copying each other? is it trained and it's part of a repertoire of non verbal assertiveness? or is it that their alpha/type a personality is just oblivious to it?

    or maybe its in my head :dunno:lol3

    i'm interested to hear if this stuff is in a handbook somewhere of how to be a prick

    Bugger. That won't be cheap. But look on the bright side its (probably) more stable than it was before.

    Beware the quick answer as its usually "No"

    Stuff has a close up picture showing some beehives teetering on the edge of oblivion...you can see them in that photo as well. I mentioned to my Bride the area will be swarming with tourists, she said I don't think so honey :D
