I generally don’t like crowds.
I hate the press of people and how everyone is in your way when you want to get somewhere. I’m usually pretty good about getting through crowds with a minimum of delay, but, I have to admit, until I saw the article “Walk Through Crowds” on the Wired.com How-To Wiki, I hadn’t ever thought about describing the methods I use to someone. And, since they’ve done such a good job of it there, I won’t try. Besides, they’ve got some ideas there that hadn’t actually occurred to me. Granted I may do some of them unconsciously, but, well, the entry describes a sort of “best practices” for getting from one side to the other of a crowd.
In any case, while it is actually useful information, it seemed just silly enough for a Friday Fun Post.
