Now in Vilnius. It’s very pretty. I thoroughly recommend it.

First British train breaks the 200 mph barrier

30 July 2003

Wow. Fast trains in Britain? What next?

I find this news strangely disturbing. The fact we’ve been restrictred to slower trains than the continent for so long and the general decrepit state of our railways these days, it seems quite frightening that we have actually now got a rail line as fast as our European friends have.

This could be the start of a high-speed revolution in British railways that finally overturns the supremacy of the car…well, maybe not.

Those good folks at Coca-Cola

27 July 2003

A Coca-Cola plant has been depleting local farmers of their water supply. In an attempt to appease them they’ve been giving the waste sludge from the plant to the farmers to use as fertiliser. A kind-hearted attempt at compensation to the community? You might think so, until you find out that tests revealed the material was useless as a fertiliser and contained a number of toxic metals, including cadmium and lead.
