This is too good not to share.


Found via Fuse Magazine. I couldn't resist passing this one along. Apparently the Mayor of London is considering closing the Westminster bridge in the early afternoon on sunny days, due to the.....er......phenomenon shown in the photo above.

I'm with the writer of the original article I stole this photo from. You'd think they would have noticed this when the bridge was opened in freakin' 1862.

Southerngirl: Apparently the Mayor doesn't. (Good grief, to consider CLOSING the bridge for something like this? The British really can be quite exasperating sometimes).

The amount of times I've crossed that bridge and never noticed.
Methinks half of my fellow cityfolk haven't either xD
(That and yes, there's the constant cloud...)
The mayor can consider as he likes, but I think Londoners themselves would just be highly amused and tell him to leave it be.
If after the odd 140 years no one really paid attention, I don't see why we should now :)

And trust me, Westminister Bridge being next to Parliament and being the one of the main bridges to the south of London being closed for something like this would leave Londoners feeling fairly homicdal...

But thanks for the post, now I gotta enlghten a few peeps back home :p

Mystique: I wondered if I would hear from any Brits about this one. So far you're the first. :)

I guess the frequent clouds WOULD be a reason they hadn't noticed anything before now!
