Walk a Mile Store

Walk a mile in my shoes...

A theme store where you can experience several hours of realistic recreations of some of the life experiences of your heroes. The store provides the actors and props, say for several famous lives each week. Admire Nelson Mandela? - sit for a while in a mock up of his cell, feel the koshes of the Boers tapping your skull...

Love Wylie E Coyote? Enter a series of cartoon walled rooms and be smashed in a series of zany situations...

(not a call for a list .. :)

       So... like Mr Benn, then?

       I was expecting an idea for a store where you have to walk a set path to get through, even if you know what you want and where it is, thus forcing you to walk a mile. Much like every IKEA I've ever been to.
Not what I was expecting, so [+].

       Very good, would be intersting to see part of Hitler's life, or Stalin's. People who we don't really admire as much.

       Or anyone who thinks their lot is the most difficult to exist with could submit their circumstances, to allow others to see how they'd cope in your shoes.   

       (based on that bumper sticker "you could never be me")

       +, but, I think it'd be hard to do....   

       "I wish that for just one time   

       You could stand inside my shoes   

       And just for that one moment   

       I could be you.   

       Yes I wish that for just one time   

       You could stand inside my shoes   

       You'd know what a drag it is   

       To see you."

       They say you cant judge a man Until you walked a mile in his shoes   

       So I stole your shoes And I walked a mile in them   

       And I still wont consider you a friend   

       The shoes were a pair of Nikes I do admit I liked these   

       White and navy blue Your'e a dick in pretty shoes   

       I must say your'e a dick in pretty shoes And I felt for the kid who had made them   

       Working his ass off for a loaf of bread And for all I know that kid just might be dead!   

       They say you can't judge a man Until you walked a mile in his shoes   

       Does that rule apply to a man who mostly walks barefoot?   

       Of all my old hippie friends There is one that I can't stand   

       So I stole his shoes And walked across the land   

       And now I'm gonna judge that man Cause your'e a dick! Thats your new title For a boy so idle For a boy so maginess   

       A hundred dollars and then You'd kiss yourself if you had lips   

       I may not be Tom Cruise But I've got a pair of pretty shoes And I aint giving them back to you! No I aint giving them back to you!   

       I'm keeping this pair of pretty shoes!

       What about the opposite? Admire Paris Hilton, dress up like her and make your own home movies!
