Cable car to nowhere: You Rodney!: Half a brain: Big clothes peg: "Schimpf-los": and a Big lollipop.



Stonking amounts of lack of temperature at the Castle this morn, even the liquid metal gauge is wilting, and as I sit here naked on the sofa his Maj is giving me strange looks...
Just got back from the stale bread, gruel and his Maj’s food run dahn Tesco and tried to purchase some go juice on the way out, of twenty pumps only eight were working, two of those were out of unleaded and they have started charging lots of loot for air and water at the tyre thingy.





It seems that the £44 million Emirates Air Line cable car doo-dah over the Thames didn’t like the “Summer” weather and decided to go on strike leaving more than 60 passengers, including young children, the elderly and tourists, suspended in mid-air after Britain's first urban cable car system broke down in the midday sun.
After 40 long minutes hanging about some passengers refused to board again amid fears another incident could occur, others demanded a refund for their £16 entry fee.
While some workers claimed a key generator had overheated, apologetic officials said the earlier inquiries suggested the “technical fault” was down to a faulty sensor, Transport for London launched an investigation to establish what caused the fault but denied witness claims that it had broken down because of the heat.


Wonder if it will work when it gets cold-on Friday.....





An underage drinker was made to look a plonker as he tried to get into a pub using fake ID… under the name of Only Fools And Horses chump Rodney Trotter.
Doormen got suspicious when they saw the address on the novelty driving licence was 23 Nelson Mandela House, Peckham, and it had his date of birth as 1960.
Then they noticed the picture was of actor Nicholas Lyndhurst, who played Rodders in the TV comedy.
The pub boss in Newquay, Cornwall, said yesterday: “I haven’t seen a celebrity ID used like that.
"We put it through the scanner as a joke… then confiscated it.”
The town is plagued by teen boozers and ID scanners were brought in at bars.
“Rodney” fled before police arrived but Insp Ian Drummond-Smith said the fake ID could have got him jailed.
He said: “A forged licence can get you two years. People should think very hard about the consequences.”
 

Should have gorn to Tesco...




Do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?
If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
knowing
acknowledges
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies
practical
safe

RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
uses feeling
"big picture" oriented
imagination rules
symbols and images

Present and future
philosophy & religion
can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
believes
appreciates
spatial perception
knows object function
fantasy based
presents possibilities
impetuous
risk taking


Clockwise for me-always knew I only had half a brain....




Built for the Festival of the Five Seasons in Chaudfontaine Park, which lies on the outskirts of Liege, Belgium, a giant clothespin sculpture appears to be holding on to a mound of dirt and grass.
Designed by Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal, a professor of art at the Middle East Technical University, the giant sculpture is just one piece in a string of Uysal works that rely on flawless illusion.


What the bleedin hell is “illusionary” about a great big lump of wood?




Two German entrepreneurs have devised a way for passive-aggressive citizens to blow off some steam - dial a telephone number and give the person on the other end a verbal lashing.
The swearing hotline, known as "Schimpf-los" ("swear away") in German, has operators standing by seven days a week for frustrated individuals to jeer at and taunt using the most unsavoury language they can muster
The service costs 1.49 Euros per minute - a figure Schulte feels is completely justified. "For getting everything off your chest, it's a bargain."
Don’t need it-I’ve got a blog-but the number is in the pic if you feel the need....
 

And finally:
 


A confectionery company in the US created the world's largest lollipop.
The massive 7,000-pound chocolate lolly, made by Sees Candies, has been on display at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco.
The sweet feat was certified by Guinness World Records' adjudicator Amanda Mochan and it beats the previous largest sweet, which was held by Ashrita Furman for a 6,514 pound effort.


Just a normal bit of “candy” for some then.....




And today’s thought:
Now, where is U-Turn Cam sitting Olympics#2?

The Rodney Trotter one was excellent.

Anti-clockwise for me every time. I suppose that's my creativity out the window - no wonder I don't like climate science.

Angus said...

Only fools and horses James:)

But at least you can understand logic, facts, words, language, math and science AK:)

It does explain why my blog is so piss poor though......

It was anti-clock as I scrolled darn the page - but once I included the foot rising from the floor it appeared clockwise. The foot made all the difference.
Perhaps I have a foot fetish?
Cheers..Bernard the baking!

Baking 'ot as in your castle furnace; nothing to do with bread & yeast!
