After 47 years I've started to wonder why it's always me that steps off the pavement and what would happen if I stood my ground sometimes (especially when it's a younger person - what happened to manners?!) For American visitors, Google translate tells me that 'pavement' translates to sidewalk in American English.

Here in America I've found it best to step off the sidewalk. Concealed handguns are legal here and irritating someone can lead to sudden death....

Good grief - pavement rage, eh? Thankfully here in Britain we're still pretty polite and the 'clash' scenario is rare; bad language and gestures really only happen from within the security of a car.

Here's the trick Peahen,.. when you realise they're on a collision course with you, don't step off the pavement, just stand still.

They have no choice then because otherwise they walk into you.

Nice diagrams - can you explain the off-side rule now?

nice strategy, I'll try that tomorrow.

No, it's my firm belief that anyone who can explain the offside rule is bluffing, secure in the knowledge that no-one else can explain it either.

If you want something truly baffling, look into cricket's Duckworth-Lewis method.

On the first frame, is that you at the back Peahen with pink hair?

in my dreams... I would love hair that pink. With reference to the previous episode, I hope you can appreciate the care I took to make sure all ethnic, social, age, sexual preference and gender groups are represented equally in my crowd scene.

The crowd scene is good..though you overlooked transgender mulatto people with male pattern baldness. But I can ignore it for now....

Hahaha! My uncles were like your red arrows. There used to an intersection in my town where they put a flashing light for safety, because it was hard to see vehicles coming in the other directions.

One day, one of my uncles was approaching the light and saw another vehicle coming from the side. Red arrow as he was, he kept going, positive that the other driver would stop, because everyone always stopped for him, right?

Well, this one happened to be ANOTHER red arrow and didn't stop. The vehicles crashed in the intersection, and my uncle got out of his truck, really upset, wanting to knock the other driver's teeth out, when he suddenly saw who the other driver was. It was his own brother! My other uncle. They looked at each other, and ended up laughing, exchanging some perfunctory, friendly profanities, like they always used to, shook hands and left.

This was a staple of family gatherings, but none of them learned anything from the experience. If anything, it made them both feel empowered in their red arrowness.
