Cities around the world have begun to make public seating uncomfortable – by design! The intent is not to annoy visitors to parks, trains stations and so on, but to discourage those who habitually use such seating for much longer than the usual few minutes.
Take the below , located in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro West Park. Built from stainless steel, the bench gets hot in summer and cold in winter. Its rounded, smooth surface is slippery and anti-ergonomic.
According to the local parks office, the benches are intended for short-term use and “people should take the utmost care when sitting on them.”

Sorry, I thought this was a discussion forum, not a church.

If you can't accept polite criticism, don't publicly brag on your artistic/crafts accomplishments.
Gord, you can't have it both ways. First you bitch, then you complain when someone bitches??

I expressed an alternative personal opinion; but never suggested that anyone (not sharing it) “shut up”.
I don’t think that replying to an “I like this” post, with an “I don’t” is a “bitch. I may be wronge.
Nor did I suggest that anyone had a “small mind”; a personal insult in my opinion (and, if so, not permitted here).

Hmmm . . . looks like it could be a section of mast from Maltese Falcon, with a built-in rake . . . oh, and look, a raker to go with it.
