00041 Bamboo bike

Ad mittedly I haven't posted up here for a week or so, but that's just because nothing has happened - I'm dormant.
But just then, Pikey sent us this link to a superb page with details of a bike constructed using bamboo as the tubeset. look out carbon composites. Now my life is complete again

I've got to try this at home. 360 panorama, into photoshop, change the coords from rectangular to polar and bish, bash, bosh.
The set of polar adjusted composites is fantastic.

0039 Tube

I was reminded of an episode from about 15 years ago on the Jubilee line when I came across these snippets of tannoi announcements. My experience sounded like this:
"Wakey, wakey, rise & shine this is the end of the Jubilee Line, I'll say it again, though it may sound strange. If you will, please, all change."

00038 And and and ...

I was reminded by nothing at all to post this, which makes it all the more certain that it is trivia of the most trivial.
From Danny Baker again, and again quite an old one.
A sign painter was asked to adjust the lettering on the outside of a pub when the landlord noticed that there was "too much space between the 'Coach' and 'and' and 'and' and 'horses'".
Just repeat it to yourself a couple of times. Nice

00037 Martello Tower

Forgot to post this up. It's from about two weeks ago and not much to write home about, but would have been so much better if the RC rig I took it from worked in the vertical (looking downwards) position. It was the first outing for my new (but second hand) Pentax Optio S4, with a Gentled - an IR led which clips right into an RC rig and activates the camera remotely. Shame, it was a good day.

Unreal robot mower madness. I can't believe that we'are seriously considering buying an automated lawnmower. But just one look at the video convinced me that this was ludicrous enough to buy.

00035 Must see pano

Stumbled across the most unusual pano of Paris from a hot air baloon. Bonkers. And, yes, that is the Eiffel Tower directly beneath the baloon. Double bonkers.

00034 Flyin'

Well, took out the 11m Strike2 and whooooeeeeeeeeeee, just flew down the beach. It was a mild wind day, but that didn't stop me from flying up and off. Body dragging in the sea's next. Wetsuit obligatory (as well as small cajones, judging by the temparature of the sea these days).

And here it is. It is possible that if I find myself travelling through darkness towards a bright light, I will look up and see that it is this that is providing the propulsion.
