The surveillance footage of a young couple kissing in Shanghai’s metro (complete with mocking commentary) made the rounds on several video-sharing websites in early January. Its unwitting stars announced plans to sue and Shanghai’s metro authority responded by firing one of three employees responsible for leaking the footage (the other two employees were no longer with the company when the scandal broke).

Last time I checked, the subway is a public place, so if you choose to do something amorous, or even an activity as mundane as picking your nose, you do so at your own risk.

In order to prevent people from invading my personal space, I drafted this post in the privacy of a toilet cubicle. But wait! It’s a public toilet.
