Title: Just Because (Unclassifiable Photos)
Post by: clarion on June 13, 2013, 03:49:24 pm
I occasionally have a photo I want to share, which doesn't fit in an existing thread, and isn't a subject all of its own, but I haven't had anywhere to put them.  So here's one, taken with my phone on a commuter train in londonton (it made me smile, at least):

Hope that helps.

You are probably right.  Thanks for the advice.

I may well find myself too lazy to get rid of this thread anyway ;D

Me too. "Can I be bothered? Really? Nahhh."

My pooter died at work yesterday, so have been bereft. Now have a nearly-new imac 24" screen one 3.06 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo ("bum, bum-bum-bum-bum-BUM"). So am back online! A lot of money poorer now, but what you gonna do!!?

Oddly (or perhaps not so oddly), one of the first stupid things I did when we moved to Brummingham was ride up Barr Beacon, in search of this:

I may have *cough* *wheeze* cycled up various other bastard hills to visit well-known TV masts, too.  Though conspicuously not Emley Moor.  Really must get round to that at some point.  And Holme Moss, which I've only visited by car.

It is, just there above the feet of the microphone stand.

The big shadow in the foreground is obviously from an out-of-shot flagpole.

Makes sense, thanks!

Must be a very long flagpole as shadows are extremely short here.

I think your head has been messed with Hellymedic.

The shadows are long not extremely short.  The sun must be low down (guess: 60 degrees)

(http://www.thepoke.co.uk/wp-content/gallery/something-is-wrong/5.jpg)

There's a shadow of a flag and flag pole on the sand.  The flag and pole are probably 20 feet behind the camera).

There's a woman speaking, stood on a wooden board on the sand, I'm guessing 12 feet further away than the flag shadow.

The shadow of the woman and microphone is also long but not obvious (except for a small bit of the mic you can just see).

A couple of years ago, we were speculating about the purpose of this structure, on Three Howes Rigg (above Castleton in the North Yorks Moors):

Sheep shelter? Over-engineered bus stop? The outward protrusion of an underground fallout bunker?

Anyway, it seems the mystery has been solved:

Apparently it's a reaction to ex-F-i-L's statement that "if you're in marketing it doesn't matter whether you're selling helicopters or potatoes".  Ex-B-i-L is in marketing.  Selling helicopters helichopter-drone-things.

Correct. The lampshade was only new in 1998.

Curious:

(http://www.pbase.com/image/165960687.jpg)

The legend on the manhole cover reads "Kanalisation Weissenburg" but the manhole is in the French town of Wissembourg.  This means that the cover dates from the German occupation of Alsace between 1870 and 1918 - unless it dates from WW2, although it's highly unlikely that foundry capacity would have been given over to city furniture in time of war.

Because Donald TЯump they were looking for them in Nambia, though.  Easy mistake to make, especially after a night on the covfefe.

This needs a little explanation. It's a poster in Tel Aviv airport. The writing, in hebrew says "I'm also a Duty Freak", with "Duty Freak" transliterated into the hebrew. Only. In hebrew, there are frequently no vowels, as here. Also, an "F" sound turns into a "P" sound with the addition of one of those dots that aren't there. So, in an alternative universe this poster has the (hipster?) proclaiming "I, too, am a Duty Prick"

I saw this building in a field on the Avon Cycleway audax yesterday and stopped to investigate. Unfortunately I couldn't get any closer without trampling on the maize. I'm not sure if it used to be a windmill or maybe a storage of some sort or what. There is a a rectangular single-storey building completely enveloped in bushes behind it and at some point the tower has had an electricity connection.

That's not aliens, that's spiders.  They'll be hiding in the rain gauge, plotting[1].


[1] Phase 1 of their devious plans would appear to involve luring the humans outside in the erroneous belief that it isn't raining, through tactical webbing-up of the mechanism.

The Muur van Geeraardsbergen and view over Flanders.  For all the fuss made of it, it's quite a short hill even from the middle of the town.  It gets a biit steep and I'd not fancy it on a front wheel drive recumbent in the wet and nasty.
