This 'new breed' did not get along well with long-time established and local Davis homeless, who tend to avoid them. The new breed is noted to not pick up after themselves, leaving a large quantity of litter in the bench area and around bushes across the tracks along the Calori Property, in the east corner of the Davis Wye, and along the railroad side of 203 J Street and 210 I Street where they sometimes camp or rest. Some of the Amtrak crews have nicknamed this rotating cast of people "The Davis Mensa Society" (DMS). Some of the DMS have medium-sized dogs which appear to be pit-bull mixes. There was an incident in 2009 where a passenger got off a train and one of these dogs lunged at him. In another incident, a bicycle officer was bit. The dog was taken, but surprisingly was returned to its owner.<br> + <br> + The DMS tend to give an loud 'Good Morning' or other greetings, and sometimes are very rude and/or agressive if you do not respond.

The DMS at times sit on the eastern indent and use the next one to the west as a urinal, so it sometimes smells of urine. Many of the platform lights near the benches were busted out one-by-one over a period of time, though the powers-that-be replaced them recently so that end of the platform did not fall into total darkness.<br> + <br> + There are mixed reports on whether the police can site the DMS and others for loitering and drinking here under anti-public-drinking laws and/or a statute which allow removal of persons not holding tickets at the station. For long periods, the DMS seem to overwhelm police resources.

I've been a fan of SBC for awhile (not the company), and it was very popular in America in the 1800s, and there are SB houses in Europe that are currently standing that are over two hundred year olds. Plus a famous (among alternative building fans) town in Austrailia that is all straw bale and has been standing without problems for a long time (decades? 100 years? I can't recall, but it's commonly cited as an example). --["JabberWokky"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Straw Bale Benchhttp://daviswiki.org/Straw_Bale_Bench2006-08-10 10:22:32AlphaDog?? <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Straw Bale Bench<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 1: </td> <td> Line 1: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> This huge ["Benches" bench] is located at the ["Train Station"].
