Really enjoyed that. Modern Health & Safety is often mocked, but I bet fewer workers would die if that bridge was built today.

With the introduction of the new interactive 404 screen for Chrome today, I thought these other 404 splashes were a bit of fun.

And some entertainment while you wait ...

A bit Spark-Geek, but interesting reading {for electricians} .. Tenacity with intermittent faults pays off.

Interesting piece about our city that doesn't mention Rangers/Celtic, 'No Mean City' or refer to the Underground as the C*******k O****e. Perhaps we really have changed.
Is there anything that the writer missed?
