Feb 17th, 2019: Fabric of Society

Quote:
The fabric of a society or system is its basic structure, with all the customs and beliefs that make it work successfully.
Poppycock, the fabric of society is cloth (woven fibers), which covers the seats on Public transportation, ie buses and trains.



Some will choose off the rack, stock material, while others will have their own design produced, depending on resources and clout.



But who decides, who chooses what will smack your eyeballs every morning when you wake up half way to work?



I think the people, the paying riders, should at least have a vote on what caresses their butts so often. Patterns to the people!!



What say you, are you ready to wrest the power to chose what greets your ass from "the man".



You can't just overthrow the powers that be without planning your strategy for change before you get there, or you won't be there long.
So what colors, patterns, designs would you choose. After you decide, only then to the pitchforks and torches.

Look at the balls on Madrid! Nearly all white. I guess....

The stains in Spain stay mainly on the planes.

Those blue seats with the old person image on them to show that they are reserved are smart.

On the DC metro, there are signs up by the ceiling that say those seats are reserved. Pedestrians do not read signs that are above their heads. I have always thought they should put the reserved signs on the seats themselves.

Similarly, the most effective ads I have seen in metro were big stickers stuck to the of the stations. People who walk tend to look where they are walking. Put the signs there.

The latest series of Great British Railway Journeys is currently being shown.
The presenter, Michael Portillo, has a somewhat 'unusual' taste in fashion.
His favourite jacket at the moment appears to be made from the seat fabric used in London Underground trains some years ago.

I might be wrong as I haven't been to London for decades (can't stand the place) but that pattern looks awfully familiar.

Some more up to date designs: Link

Why is train-seat fabric so ugly?

Get your own train-seat fabric from the London Transport Museum:

The furniture at the LT Museum site is pretty unremarkable and, aside from that, it's grossly overpriced!

I shall not be beating a path to their door.

However, thanks for posting the link, sexobon.

They choose something that won't show the dirt.
