  1. It's really quite something how quickly these things can become outdated isn't it? It's not even 30 years old and yet it blends in more with the architecture of the 40 years preceding it rather than the 20 years following it. The plot of land itself has had quite the history of relatively noteworthy buildings, I'll be interested to see what they end up doing with it.
  2. Yeah I'm really not convinced the barrier should be collapsing in like that. I get that barriers are designed to withstand a certain level of impact but what's happened here is very similar to what happened to Francois Cevert decades ago - part of the barrier has failed and part of it has survived. Unfortunately in the case of Cevert it essentially meant he was cut in half - and a similar fate would have happened to Grosjean had it not been for the staggering strength of the halo. Another oddity is the fire itself which you very rarely see from an impact these days. Engine blow-outs were
  3. If our government was known for investing in the social system, healthcare, education, etc and not just giving it to their mates, then yes that's exactly where I'd want it to go. Wealth desperately needs a fairer distribution.
  4. People probably got on fine too before running water was a thing - doesn't mean it's not a good idea. I'm not sure how you come to your final conclusion when this is specifically about how billionaires and big corporations are actively avoiding contributing what they should - especially when that total exceeds the total avoided at the 'bottom of the heap' many many times over.
  5. I'm not really sure why. The money lost through what you've said will be a fraction of the amount that is dodged/avoided by large corporations and billionaires like SL. I think we'd do better to focus our attention on the real issues rather than what the tabloids would have you believe. Don't get me wrong, people who work hard and innovate like SL deserve to be filthy rich, it's absolutely earned. But there's rich and then there's super rich. The difference between a millionaire and a billionaire is night and day, and when you have people like Jeff Bezos who could in theory solve world hu
  6. The website itself is amazing. Loads of old photos and satellite imagery going back to 1946. There's a version for Somerset and South Gloucestershire as well. Similarly, if you download Google Earth on a desktop machine, it can take you back to the centre of Bristol back to the late 90's.
  7. The game is rapid. I buy it every year and I've become a bit disillusioned with it recently, but this year is definitely a very good version. Would definitely recommend - nothing major or groundbreaking but it just feels smoother and more fun.
  8. Sproule v GJ anybody? Tomlin v everyone?
  9. They are fast becoming my second-favourite team.
  10. I get your point but that doesn't really make sense here, as most people got the name wrong even before it was called Elizabeth Tower! It's just one that people always got wrong. I actually had to Google to find out the previous name of the Tower bit.
  11. Yeah it will change over time, just not very quickly. Not a huge fan of the name personally, but let's face it it needed to be changed.
  12. Not to be rude mate but it's psychology that disagrees with you, not just me. We've all seen someone share something fake on Facebook through motivated reasoning. That gives it every chance that we ourselves have done it too.
  13. Unfortunately mate, that is pure complacency. We really, really can't. You'd be absolutely amazed at how easily influenced you or I could be.
