@9 It matters because you claim "everyone knows". You have no grounds or a legitimate interest in saying that. "Weird" is an insufficient word to describe your interest in our local politics and level of commentary that might mislead locals.

@9 "Everyone knows" doesn't make sense from your perspective. You have no standing to say that.

Thanks, @67 and @68 and @69.

The fact is, humanity at this point can easily trample the entire world, and these parks are a cursory defense of it. Banksy is absolutely relevant, and your diction does not dismiss that point at all.

Authoritarians can't figure out why undermining press credibility is a problem. News at 11!
