Im in Las Vegas a work thing. Words fail me about this place. Think Hunter S completely nailed it. Must be 1000 times worse now. Thousands of fat people shuffling up and down the strip with plastic vases full of alcholic smoothies.

If he has I’ll be in the Bolton Arms (Redmire) tonight looking for him the dirty bastard.

I’ll be in there about 930 big_smile

As Shaggy would say,  "wasn't me......"

Lovely area though.  The Mrs is seriously talking about buying a place up there which would suit me down to the ground. 

I say this without an ounce of irony,  we actually went to visit two places one in Booze the other in Blades (I kid you not)

Re: Where are you now......

Not now but earlier today, couldn't type at the time due to some vague childhood trauma. That motorway under a motorway at the side of Meadowhall. Avoided it like the plague for years but unexpectedly got channelled on to it today.
Don't quote me but I think years ago an earthquake flattened a load of people in a similar place abroad somewhere, remember seeing it on The News, next day My Dad was driving us under the Motorway near Sheffield, only young at the time but remember holding my head under a coat on the back seat, half expecting a million tonnes of concrete to turn us in to pancakes.

Not even googling it, today was bad enough.

Thanks Lads that's the big lump of nightmare inducing concrete. Glad I wasn't driving under it when they dropped those Salt & Pepper pot cooling towers I would have needed some new undies, trousers, somebody with specialist car valeting skills and the name of a psychiatrist.

I drive under that tomb lid most days.   Not a clue why it was designed like that.

Can easily be avoided be going through Meadowhall approach roads.

Not now but yesterday I had a minor calamity at 6:00am on The Oldham Road in Manchester, on lifting my arse cheek I proceded to omit a routine trump into the Manchester air but instead of the satisfying relief of the exiting fruity gas to my horror I felt the unmistakenable warmth of a severely problematic liquid!!

Made for an interesting start to the day.

It was built that way because it's Sheffield, and we do what we bloody well like. If you don't like it, stay in that there West Yorkshire. smile

Just done a bit of research and the design (by Ward and Abbishaw of Rothwell) was second choice.  First choice, which was ultimately deemed unworkable, was a huge car slingshot.  Both ideas commissioned by West Yorkshire philanthropists hell bent on making sure noone had to spend a second longer than necessary in the North Midlands when on their way back from taking money off southerners.

Not a lot of people know that and if you tell them they don't believe you.
