Maybe it refers to the chucking I asked about in foot's thousand points of cut thread?

All I know is, I want the Grilled Cheese Experience, and I want it NOW!

We have this one intersection nearby that lets you cross diagonally every other cycle. All cars stop for 30 seconds or so.

Can you cross normally, as well as cross diagonally, on those cycles? I suppose they tell you which cycle is up next.

They have walk signals pointed diagonally, in addition to the regular ones.

As you can see, few people cross diagonally. It just goes against their instincts.

Oxford Circus, London.

I've no experience of this junction but, given the layout, I suspect that it operates in a broadly similar manner to yours, glatt.

The whole thing looks an absolute horror. See it from ground level here. Street View.

Google seem to have sent their camera car along Oxford Street very early on a Sunday morning. I can't think why....

When the pedestrians outnumber cars about 20 to 1 it makes sense to have these.

Ah! Swindon's 'Magic Roundabout'.

Not for the faint hearted. There's a similar horror at Hemel Hempstead.

Yesterday I visited one of the museums. If I go infrequently enough, they sometimes have new stuff on display.

That song pops into my head every time I think of this thread.

Here are a couple I took around a week ago and never got around to posting.

I'm not sure what happened. Somebody went when they weren't supposed to.
