    No. Far too fidgety.

    Nor do I contribute to them (musicians though...yes, sometimes).

    No, I'd be rubbish.

    Acc to an article in the DT today they earn about £30 a day after deducting the cost of the spray paint that costs £7.99.

    I couldn't keep still for that long.

    The one in the T'graph can keep his eyes open for 30 minutes at a time!

    Do they suffer from fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva?

    Have seen them in La Rambla in Barcelona.

    £30 isn't much for spraying yourself and keeping still all day, I bet Aphrodite is cold.

    Maybe it's my perception but the paint always looks wet to me, painting yourself metallic? I couldn't do it for that reason - and I fidget far too much - and I get bored doing nothing.

    Dunno about that but the one the DT interviewed said that the spray paint made his skin go wrinkly and his hair fall out.

    And I've seen them in Circular Quay in Sydney. Shall we pinpoint their whereabouts?

    I saw them first in Barcelona too. Now they're everywhere, even in our nearest town/city. I would get cramps of various sorts and be sobbing in agony before very long I'm sure. Plus being very chilly at this time of year.

    Maybe in the summer when the weather is kinder to the joints and the temperature is higher. But the fidgets would be a problem.

    I am subject to intermittent muscular tremors so probably not
  16. Lascarina

    I get spasms- are they similar to tremors?

    Could be lascarina. I wouldn't know though

    I saw them in Glasgow first. No, I wouldn't like to do it. They must be sitting or leaning on something, though. Why can't I see it?

    No. Nor would I want to be.

    I don't see the art in it myself.

    I suppose they keep the spray-paint industry in customers but I'd rather they learned an instrument or danced or did something entertaining.

    I think shiny paint is now commonplace as several early "performers" caused some distress to passing people (especially the young and the old) when they used a matt stone finish.
