Unless someone out there besides Henry believes Henry is the only person that matters, I figure full agreement is less than likely.

Tower Bridge water feature bricked up because 'Londoners staring at phones could trip and fall in'

A distinctive water feature near Tower Bridge has been bricked up amid concerns that Londoners staring at smartphones could trip and fall in.

The Rill, a 260m channel flowing through limestone paving, has connected London Bridge station to the riverside as part of the More London complex for more than 15 years.

Over the past fortnight it has been fenced off, drained and bricked up, with signs stating “essential maintenance” is being carried out.

Broadgate Estates, which manages More London, declined to say why the Rill has been removed, but it is believed to be related to health and safety concerns.

Scores of Londoners have taken to Twitter to complain, with one blaming the “alarming number of people” who trip over the Rill while looking at their mobile phones.

Evening Standard


The UK is currently experiencing the clearance of a large chunk of spectrum from the top end of the UHF terrestrial TV band to allow for the expansion of 5G mobile phone/data services.
Just think of the benefits. Instead of sitting at home watching tripe on your 55" mega screen, you will be able to shamble along the High Street watching tripe on your small screen.
At least you will meet new people that way.



When you walk into them.

Not shown are the so many walking while only watching their smart phones. That threat did not exist 15 years ago.

That's pretty much Carruthers' entire post.

You wanna see a dog lose his mind?

Boil some hot dogs and let the pup have the water after it's cooled.

Friend. For. Life.

In the light of such a catastrophe, will KY qualify for Federal Aid?

If you take an illegal high you will end up illegally high. QED.

Man stuck up 32ft lamp-post in Birmingham

A man thought to have taken an illegal high became stuck at the top of a lamp-post and was rescued by firefighters.

The man somehow scaled the 32ft (10m) lamp-post in Birmingham and became stranded at the top for an hour.

Crews used a ladder from a hydraulic platform to get him down. A spokesman said they had no idea how he got there.

The fire service tweeted he had taken an "illegal high" and the incident could have "ended very differently."

West Midlands Ambulance Service said they were called to reports of a man in "a precarious position at the top of a lamppost" just before 22.00 BST on Saturday.

He was treated for a hand injury and taken to Sandwell Hospital.

And a West Midlands Police spokeswoman added: "We were called to reports of a man up a lamppost in Holly Road, Handsworth, at around 9.50pm.

He came down around an hour later and was taken to hospital."
