I shall certainly miss you
running down my cheeks.
Cooling towers are such beautiful roadside attractions generally.
"most people, just not you" though, right?
Also: the most beautiful industrial sight I have ever seen is this weird tower outside Middlesborough which is red and a flame is coming out of it, I have no idea what it is or what its called or for or what but its absolutely stunning.
because he'd be dead. But somewhere near there. Middlesbrough skews your idea of beauty, though.
It's on telly and everything.
How boring is that section of the M1 going to be now? Dead boring is how. I want my big fuck off towers to look at.
sheffield now has absolutely no identifying landmarks.
to put a slide round the outside of them, they'd have made great helter skelters
to get out of your car on the motorway and jump from the bridge onto the side of the chimney?
actually maybe it's for the best that they've gone.
I never really felt as though I had passed that festival of mediocrity otherwise known as The Midlands until they appeared.
but the news ticker on bbc2 at 4am said something about a cockup? one of the towers failed to fall? Clearly checking the bbc website is far too difficult so i thought i'd put it to you ninnies.
i think it was part of the right tower refused to fall so they've had to knock it down with machinery. It meant the motorways had to be closed for longer.
dibnage would have got it right first time.
