Brexit is about anti-globalist nationalism. The EU was supposed to prevent another European war. Its turned into a morass of centralized un-elected beureaucrats run amok. Globalism run amok. Now the media is telling you the sky is falling because the UK left. The Queen of England was caught on-mic saying there would be a European war if England did not leave, or because of this coming war it SHOULD leave. The people of the UK did not want an unfettered influx of mainly male "refugees" who were war fighting age entering their country.

Icelands football fans chant is incredibly powerfull, reminds me of their "pots n pans" revolution , maybe a key factor in their victories, so maybe if england fans had the pooeyflute going they would have had more chance?

By the way, I don't think I have told you guys how Schlammpeitziger is pronounced:

Schlam - As in Scamp
Pei - As in Pie
Tziger - As in Cigarette

So basically it's like saying 'Scamp-Pie-Cigarette'

Trust me. I did a German introductory course in 1998.
  9:46am NotarealDoctor:

Spidermank, I think that this is probably true. Just imagine, 10,000 Englishmen and women, almost united in playing Rule Britania, what a beautiful site. They could never lose!

To put the duration of Neil Young's song in perspective one could have played during its duration:

- 1/3 of Wagner's Nibelung opera
- 74 shittyflute songs
- 2 King Crimson songs
- 120 Jokerfan songs
- 1042 Nihilsm Spasm soundbites

And to what end, the cones?
  11:22am fϾfϾ (:

1) Put the cones upside down,

4) Put them back on the street

The cones are meant to prevent people from blocking the entire WFMU parking lot. But now the cones have come to symbolize much much more.

I know-get some Wabo Gel Adhesive Epoxy for building construction, and epoxy the cones to the street...this only works if the street is concrete, not asphalt. And then coat them dig poop. Then put a very very thin coating of shellac over the dog poo so they don't smell, but one touch and oops, dog poo and shellac splinters!

No poo. Take the high ground, but lean in. Let 'em smell your breath, so to speak.

Another idea to keep people away from the cones:

1) Put little radio speakers on each cone.
2) Play WFMU music through them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:30am coelacanth:

...and under the cone place a walkman tape player playing the theme to the godfather.
Avatar Ken's Hellraiser 2023 Swag For Life Member 11:31am AnAnonymousParty:

Nothing will draw the attention away from the insanity of nailing rubber cones to the pavement faster than the spectacle of smearing them with dog poop and then painting them with shellac. Nope, nothing unusual about that.

Nail your scrotum to the street to protest and challenge the authorities just like the Russian artist Petr Pavlensky did.

Pavlensky suffered under alternate side of the street parking rules, which we don't have here in Jersey City.
Avatar Ken's Hellraiser 2023 Swag For Life Member 11:34am Ken From Hyde Park:

Inside each cone, a proximity sensor and the sound of"Hey!" or something when a person draws near.
Avatar 11:34am βrian:

And shouldn't there be a bundle of helium-filled balloons attached to each cone?
Avatar 11:35am Wild Neil:

Seriously, I think if you used something like Tapcon screws it might be easier on your hands, although you have to hammer drill a pilot hole then drive it in using a hammer drill or regular drill. Nails are probably the simplest although maybe not the easiest solution...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36am coelacanth:

you could rig up some of those confetti explosion party toys to detonate when the cone is tampered with.
Avatar Ken's Hellraiser 2023 Swag For Life Member 11:36am Ken From Hyde Park:

They may have discovered a new source of helium in Tanzania, so we can afford a few balloons for the cones now.
