There's tidy!

Yes, I know I'm playing straight into the hands of the advertisers by promoting a viral video, but this one is too good not to share:

Now, if only Wales can show some of the same flair against Ireland tomorrow...

Brilliant Noise

Having been rather busy over the past fortnight, there's not a lot to add. Save, that is, for the sun and everything under it.
I found this to be rather remarkable and, in its own way, even quite moving. It's the sun, as seen in raw data from countless satellite images, with the sound supplied by the shifting energies of the sun itself. In the great scheme of things we really are quite puny and insignificant...

Apropos nowt in particular

Nothing to do with buildings, but I offer this as received from a friend. It made me chuckle:

Apparently, everyone's favourite knuckledragging halfwits, the British National Party, have launched a campaign to return Eastern Europeans back whence they came rather than 'taking all our jobs' here.
They illustrated their posters with a stirring, patriotic image of a Supermarine Spitfire. The machine, Romeo Delta Foxtrot, had an illustrious career with the fabled 303 Squadron.
You can see what's coming next...
303 was a Squadron of Polish pilots.

More here, including the picture the BNP seems to have half-inched.
