Fear of America

Not me – other people, always other people…

It’s been interesting talking to people here (mostly those who aren’t active online social networkers) about the trip.

Firstly they perceive the risk of the trip as a whole to be much greater – it’s clear that those of us who live a lot of our lives online get that everything’s going to be alright.  If you’re not used to it, it does seem a bit risky and scary.

But what else comes out, I think, is just a British fear of America.  I’ve been variously told that I will end up being shot, chopped up in pieces in someone’s basement in Arkansas or wake up dressed in a gimp suit and ball gag and abused in unspeakable ways. 

Thanks Hollywood!
