An obvious connection. Biscuits and, erm, eyesight to the blind.

I had Gary Gilmore's Eyes as an earworm for days afterwards, too. Biscuits were nice, though.

Not really one for the gratuitous cat thread, on account of how terrifying our moggies have become:

It's not the black cats that are scary, it's the sheer spooky spacey sterile whiteness.  :o

Genuine gendarme's boots. There was a course for flics at our hotel and the place was crawling with them.
I dare eat all that may become a man.

But hold the oysters.

I don't suppose we'll have a thread for TV masts:

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.

And I now have The Thunderbirds music as my Earworm clarrers  ;D



This chap was as excited as a little boy looking at the waterfall the other day, and his delight was quite infectious.

Not surprising it messes your head. Unless girl is suspended in mid-air, her shadow should be between her body and the water...

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)



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).

I had one of those once.  A friend decided to prove how butch she was by turning out the contents of her handbag.
