two facing pages from La Razon that caught my eye while I was in Granada, Spain in 2005. Does this gesture with one hand over the face and one over the groin have some significance? Or is the guy on the right, who is presumably advertising a skin or fitness clinic, inadvertently mocking the tragedy of the poor geezer on the left.
I have looked around for some info on hand gestures. The wikipedia page has a catalogue of information, but nothing that corresponds to the two guys in the paper. Somewhere else I see somebody writing a thesis on "Detection and Analytsis (sic) of Hand over face gestures," but otherwise I'm just a tourist.
Graffiti village name change plan- BBC - 9 April
Vandals keep changing the letter 'L' to a 'C' on the village's signs
Residents living in a graffiti-plagued village in Merseyside are being asked to consider changing its name to tackle vandals who alter signs in the village. Lunt, which dates back to Medieval times, has been repeatedly targeted by vandals who change the "L" to a "C". (with photo)
