Errors

I went for a walk at lunch time yesterday. Within the space of a few minutes I saw some firemen sawing some branches off a tree (and then leaving the massive branches on the pavement for everyone to walk around). It wasn’t entirely clear why they did this, but they seemed to enjoy themselves. Then I saw two yoofs negotiating with a goose that was very keen to wander into the road instead of getting back into the river. They were having a discussion about whether they should drop the goose back into the water, at which point the goose hopped off the wall and wandered into the road again. They then tried to herd it back to the side of the road. I left them to deal with their quandary. Geese can be vicious creatures.

Just to, once again, demonstrate that I am total geek… I e-mailed the London Transport Museum last night to point out an error in one of their displays. They had managed to miss a station off and so I sent them a polite e-mail pointing out their error…

You corrected the LT Museum? I am very impressed! What did they get wrong?

CoatMan - they have an electronic map showing how the underground system evolved year by year (all the lines and stations appear in a sped up graphic). They managed to totally miss out a station, as it never appears on the map. So I e-mailed them to tell them...

Which station did they omit?

Yoof?????

CoatMan *taps nose in knowing way* It was a station very near where I live, hence why I noticed.

Kahless - a youth!

Kahless - at me talking street lingo like? (Because I am sure that is how all the cool people talk...)
