Enjoy the comdey gold as I demonstrate the problems in the new cycle shelters which the local Cycling forum did not seek, and are unimpressed with. Where money might have been invested in improving routes and access the misguided thoughts were by adding these metal monsters that cyclists would feel better about coming to town. it is almost as if those proposing it have no real experience of Cycling

Wowsers - now they seem to be a dumb design.

The Fantastic Four reboot is quietly creeping in the back of the room determined to avoid people staring too much; and I think thats a shame because whilst it suffers from too many bad experiences in the past I think this new version has learned how to reboot, remodel and renew for today audience; they even avoid the cliches within the trailer; and good for them.  After Ultron and before Star Wars I am genuinely looking forward to this.

The first time I heard of UKIP was the first time I walked into a voting booth, I thought they were some sort of joke party. If there was one party I wouldn't vote for it would be these guys.

Nerdist , reposting Reddit Content since a few weeks after reddit began ? 
On behalf of the entire Nerdist.com organization I wholeheartedly apologize for what you just witnessed. We just couldn't be alone in seeing this 1988 video by The Shamen a, bear with us here, "Scottish psychedelic-influenced electronic dance music band from Aberdeen, Scotland." Because you know, that was apparently a thing at some point. The important, and perhaps only, takeaway from this is a young go-go dancer by the name of Jason Statham. The...

So this is a new installation in the Carfax and it looks like people are already humping it just like other bollards in the Carfax. Maybe it could do with being less camouflaged.

To be honest this is the hotel that makes a Disney stay feel like a Disney holiday. It helps that the staff are very French in their approach to service in a hotel.
