Interesting how modern flatted estates look like  Russian flatted estates but with more colours. Many a town and village had this experience when the railways and canals were being constructed, so nothing new there.

I once used a public loo in Somerset(?) that played classical music at occupants. 
I'd love that - and wait until the movement ends!

We met the Bristol 'Flat Earther' concerned his views could put him in danger

"Programmed" - that's a funny way to pronounce "educated that the earth is, based on current observations, an oblate spheroid".

Besides, if the earth was flat, cats would have pushed everything off it by now.  :demon:

I don't know how anyone from Bristol can think the earth is flat...
