I <3 New York

Today, as I was walking back from lunch, a Little Person in an automated wheelchair zoomed by on a busy thoroughfare. Sticking up from the back of his wheelchair was a post with two violently waving flags: the American flag on top, the Puerto Rican flag underneath.

Where else?

Only on a ship at sea, strangely enough. The upper flag is the owner's country of origin (I think), while the lower flag is the country where the ship is registered.

So if the wheelchair person were at sea, observers would know that he was an American, but that the chair was registered in Puerto Rico.

Of course, if he was at sea in a wheelchair, the meaning of his flags would likely be the last thing occupying his thoughts...

Living in any big city will net you a few odd sights. I think my favorite memory of odd was a guy with the most gorgeous mohawk done in graduated shades of blue to green...with a business suit.
