Some strange sights

As some of you might know, I live in a flat. When I look out of my window, the first thing I see are steel bars that should prevent people from falling down when they walk on the man-wide ledge just in front of the window (made so you can clean your window etc).

Living in a city, we got pidgeons, lots of these flying rats like to poop, and I don't know if this is pidgeon poop, but this sure looks like bird poop to me, at the moment,stiffly frozen:

Another sight that I saw today (the poop's been there for a month..yeah I'm to lazy to scrape it off the bar) was a bit of a MAJOR crack in my shoe sole.
I've had these shoes since July, shortly before I went to Rome because after I sprained my ankle the docs ensured me I would need good shoes, so I got a pair. The right-footed shoe has since been repaired because the sole let loose a bit and it's holding up fine. The left-footed shoe was having the same problem lately, so I was ready to get it fixed today untill I saw this other problem:
Torn shoe
Yes, the entire sole's been torn across the width. I think I need a new one.

Did the sole freeze on the shoe and snap?

to be honest, I really don't know. It could be, because it's been freezing cold here the last couple of days. It's quite a deep kinda clean tear.

I'd say you might need two new shoes.. (unless they sell just one shoe at the time at the shops where you live?!) ;)
