Maaannn... I'm sure we still stands there in subway.. What a job, a?

He is there whole day, no lanch, no.... something else. So, I'm impressed.

Have you stood there ALL day and watched him? I think not. We have a fellow here in Portland, OR that does the same thing. If he knows you are watching, he won't move a muscle. The minute you turn away, he will shift his position. If he didn't, it would get extremely painful after awhile.

They do take nature breaks, most likely during lulls in the crowd.

Please, forgive me if I sounded like sneering or something. Believe me, I didn't mean to. Moreover, I've done something like he is doing at the photo, long time ago. I was playing as an actor in theatres and done that kind of tricks. And I feel nothing but respect.

There is nothing but a friendly joke. I'm really enraptured and deeply impressed. I can delete the photo if you find it a sneer, guys. Please, let me know what you think.

No, don't delete it. I like the photo. You did a great job. I was merely pointing out that the people who do this are extremely talented but they are also human. To maintain a "frozen" position for long periods can be very painful. Also, the bladder and anus can be very powerful motivators! :mad:

Keep up the good work.

Oh yes. And he makes those machine-like sounds just by his mouth.. moving like a robot. All people around are amazed.:?Terrific, really talented.

Hi there;

The best I've seen of this genre were in New Orleans. One, a comic figure walking an invisible dog, was frozen in mid stride. Another, a construction worker, was poised (lumber, tools and all) half way up an unsupported ladder. Sorry, no shots to share.
