This is a service for people who have items that require that they be polished with an indefinite time constraint.
There are several treatments available. With most generic treatment, the item is placed in a conspicuous place - the center of a square, the base of a statue, the entrance to a university
building. Rumors are spread to tourists that "the locals believe that thing gives good luck when you rub it - bonus luck if you apply a little bit of wax or use a chamois".
For the finest shine, the item is placed in a cavern and tourists are informed that it is a natural treasure of immense age and rarity. They are warned not to touch it or it will be ruined forever.
||You seem to have a depressingly realistic view of human nature ...
||This doesnt really require clownsourcing to
achieve the outcome. The object to be smoothed
could be placed into rush hour in the crux of a
citys most congested underground line, on a
handrail which goes from floor to ceiling of a busy
train on a very busy route.
||During the busiest times therell always be some
thoughtless lazy cunt who thinks that a handrail
which is designed to easily allow about five or
more people to simultaneously hold on and achieve
a purchase (p&p extra) is perfectly fine as a
leaning post for that one particular arrogant
useless twat. The rubbing of that thoughtless
bastard usually increases proportionally to the
realisation that theyre being an arsehole, as if to
bed themselves in. This occurrence is fairly
predictable and regular, so that after a fairly short
interval of time, the object will be polished
adequately by bastards who should fucking go
home and go back to bed if theyre that tired.
||Thanks [IT] for the commentary on mob rule, I think it serves to illustrate something.
||[-] Spotty at best and not anything that could be done with a 100W polisher for 10 minutes.
