On a public forum, anyone posting runs that risk.

Holy shit, that was an extremely bullshit thread to read. Didn't make it to page two.

Seriously. Way worse things than being fat. Dead, cancer, prison, loveless life, unable to eat garlic. I could name kajillions of things.

People disappoint me sometimes. I expect so much more.

Seriously, I don't.

I have few friends, but they are dear friends. I believe most people think the way that thread reads. I can do and manage to live and be happy with the few that I think to know are true.

It can and is a sad state of affairs out there and seems to worsen by the day.



Any hoots.

Hey McGorgeous.

Heh.

Hey, let's jump up and down. We're both fatties, maybe we can jolt some sense and perspective into people through a little earth shaking? There's a thought.

Hey McGorgeous.
Yup!
This place has hidden dimensions. I try and give credit, but am sometimes blown away when my perspective is tweaked. I don't know why it still surprises me. I have not been trained to be jaded? Moral of story, though, those are just words.

...London businessman Martin Lindsay's Jaguar just happened to be parked right where the rays were focused last Thursday. He returned to the Jag, the BBC says, to find "parts of his car — including the wing mirror and badge — had melted." City A.M. says panels along the side of the car were warped by the heat.

Other vehicles parked near the Walkie-Talkie have also been damaged, according to local news outlets. What's more, a "beam of hot light set the carpet of a nearby barber shop on fire," City A.M. adds. (The publication, by the way, has taken to calling the building the "Walkie Scorchie.")

"Land Securities, which is developing the tower with the Canary Wharf Group, says it is working on a solution and has taken the emergency measure of suspending the parking bays beneath the glare," the BBC writes. "They have described the problem as a phenomenon caused by the current elevation of the sun in the sky. It is thought it can last for two hours a day and might only be a problem for the next two or three weeks."

This isn't the first time that a building designed by architect Rafael Vinoly has been the focus of such heated attention. In 2010 there were reports of melted cups, singed hair and other unusual events near the Vdara Hotel in Las Vegas — another Vinoly building. Local news outlets took to calling it the "death ray." Film added to the building's windows reportedly eased the problem.


Believe it or not, this is not a joke.



London Walkie Talkie Owners Probe Tower’s Car-Melting Beam

The owner
Quote:
s of the 37-story tower known as the Walkie Talkie in the City of London financial district are investigating a light beam cast by the building that’s so intense it melted parked cars.

Land Securities Group Plc and Canary Wharf Group Plc are examining the phenomenon and, along with the City of London, have blocked three parking spaces around the building at 20 Fenchurch Street that may be affected, the companies said in a statement after the market closed yesterday. The glare from the skyscraper, whose nickname derives from its tapering rectangular design that is also responsible for the beam, has melted parts of vehicles, City AM newspaper reported yesterday.

“We are taking the issue of light reflecting from 20 Fenchurch Street seriously and are looking into the matter as a priority,” Land Securities and Canary Wharf Group said in the statement.

The light beam, which depends on the sun’s elevation in the sky, lasts about two hours a day at this time of the year, the companies said. Preliminary modeling indicates it will be present for two to three weeks.

“We are consulting with local businesses and the City to address the issue in the short term while also evaluating longer-term solutions to ensure the issue cannot recur,” the companies said.

Diffused Light
The developers may have to apply a finish to the outside of the glass that diffuses light rather than reflecting it at full intensity, said Koen Steemers, head of Cambridge University’s department of architecture.

“It probably wouldn’t affect the transparency of the glass, but would slightly scatter the reflected solar radiation,” he said.

The Walkie Talkie, designed by Uruguayan architect Rafael Vinoly, is due to be completed next year. Tenants have signed up to occupy 52 percent of the building and contracts for a further 4 percent of the space are awaiting legal confirmation, Land Securities said on July 17.

The building is popular with tenants from the insurance industry because it’s close to the Lloyds of London building. Markel Corp., Ascot Underwriting Inc and Kiln Group Ltd. have signed deals as tenants.

ok...
i get it.
don't go near the walkie talkie...

lotta tread worn off this subject's thread-tires...

unless there's political conspiracy afoot?
or aliens?
or....
or even druids?

does that beam
aim at some odd minister's office
at precisely noon on the equinox????

will it render one party or the other
temporarily impotent?

is it a modern day walkie talkie-henge?

i get it.
the building melts cars.
it fucking should;
as much trouble as it's causing!
