Still the most noble form of transportation is to be carried around by others, walking yourself is for plebs. Show us your palanquins then!

It is better than walking yourself at any time. The ride quality improves the more bearers you got. The lowest you wanna go is two bearers, and that is already the budget option.
>>
>>1902721
The more bearers you got the better obviously. A good set is like 24 bearers for a smooth and efficient ride.

If you like extras like your spouse, a tv, minibar etc. you want more bearers, if you want to go for a sporty ride, get a single seater and a dozen bearers. Pic related is Queen Elisabeth II and Prince Phillip going for a stroll.

No you can have one, it's just a frame slung on a guy's back that you sit on.
Only works if the person being carried is small enough

i was at burningman early one morning when i saw this crew of fat, trashy juggalos on a shaded mattress on castor wheels being pulled by one other fat midwesterner on foot while the others were laughing and having a good time.

that was probably the most wholesome memorable burningman vehicle i saw

Palanquins only work well when the bearers are all the same height. Otherwise you're in for a fun time.

Since you had to reply to my comment from 4 months ago:
I was referring to the low level of grain and detail which is atypical for a 35mm film photograph from that time. >>1908687 is a lot more along the lines of what you would usually expect.

My theory is that it was shot on medium format film.

why does this trigger people?
>>
>>1960767
Palanquins in general is one of the most culturally-enshrined forms of transportation, and is inherently a status symbol that displays one being raised and transported by many others, with the assumption of social supremacy.
Why would it be unreasonable that playing with such a classic formula triggers a response?

(actually not sure if you're referring to just that image, which isn't that shocking compared to others in this thread)
