And They Said It Changes When the Sun Goes Down Around Here

See that last picture? Yes, those are public urinals. In an effort to crack down on "anti social behaviour" (not to mention wicked smells of piss throughout the city), portable urinals have been installed throughout city centre and are removed at the end of the weekend.

Walking through city centre on Saturday night, Paul said that it felt and looked like the Apocalypse: men pissing in the street, women teetering on 6 inch heels and falling down in between puking sessions, a plethora of police navigating through the swarm of underage drinkers, ambulances and police sirens to be heard on the periphery.

Just another Saturday night in Glasgow.

A friend of mine just got back from Triere, and he said the whole north side of the Cathedral has been made into a pissoir. Seems they simply bowed to centuries of public usage.

I try to avoid Glasgow city centre on Saturday nights because of all the madness. I'm all for the public urinals though.
