Very good posts....
When trying to gather an edge if you look like you are asleep, they could care less...

But if you look like you are setting up to do something interesting and are intense about it, curiousity will kill them every time.

When I fumble around with my leg hold traps checking the Springs, jaws etc( Like I wouldn't have em in good working order) .... people stop and wonder what I am up too....

Somedays if I am doing just straight street I will do my needle thru the balloon routine. Simple, visual and gets people to stop...

Once I got a few then I am off to the races...

Default chickening...

Alex, the puppeteer, came up with this word "chickening". This is the process of turning you back to the crowd and acting like you are doing something really important and not doing anything at all.

I have never seen somebody do so little while making it look like so much.
