Ingenuity Vs The State

Two stories caught my eye this week and made me smile.They are both quintessentially British.

Robert Harrison a space enthusiast rigged up a camera to a balloon and managed to take some quite stunning pictures that clearly show the curvature of the earth and the thin blue line of atmosphere that keeps us alive. He did it all on a budget of £500 - Outstanding!

Another eccentric Brit Colin Furze has equipped his scooter with a flame thrower! Colin was fed up with other road users cutting him up, so he used a bit of ingenuity and made a bike James Bond would be proud to ride. Good drills!

Step Aside 007 You Have Competition

Two British chaps using ingenuity and a spoonful of eccentrics show the world what can be achieved with a little bit of dedication and some elbow grease.

It comes as little surprise this just will not do in Browns Britain and Colin Furze has been arrested the lazy fucking gestapo eagle eyed police spotted pictures of Colin riding his new toy and promptly arrested him for (wait for it...) suspicion of possessing an object converted into a firearm. Right Oh.


I'm sure Robert Harrison's ballooncam also breaks at least one of the 50 billion new laws NuLabour have created. So I imagine it'll not be long before his collar is felt too.

So there you have it. A little bit of fun is enough to get you nicked in Browns Britain - unless of course you are one of the Stormtroopers... In which case you can unload a clip into an electricians face with zero consequences. How did it get to this? Answers on a postcard please...
