This is a brilliant blog with shots of people who go shopping in Walmart, in the US.
Nothing unusual about folks going shopping, you might think. And you’d be wrong. These people are just unbelievable. Surely one of them owns a mirror? Other shoppers (we assume with a degree of taste) see these people and decide that what they’re wearing is so fabulous that a picture has to be sent to the site.
And there are some that defy belief.
It’s like a US version of Asda. Which it is. Not only do many of them look like muppets, but they are so inappropriately dressed it’s not true. Like this picture below.

I can’t belive that she thinks that this hoody is OK. She’s standing right in front of two black guys who don’t look like you should mess with them. I hope they saw what she was wearing. See the site in all its glory here.
Almost as funny as the pictures are the comments underneath.
You should definitely read the About Us section of the site. It lets you realise that Americans find the same sort of stuff funny that we do.

The Forth Road Bridge is an amazing engineering feat. It runs from South Queensferry on the Edinburgh side to North Queensferry on the Fife side. It was built in 1964 and was the fourth longest suspension brisdge in the world at the time, and the longest outside the US of A. It also looks great, as you can see below.

But that’s not what’s made me write about it. It stands in the shadow of its more famous neighbour, the Forth Bridge. The Forth Bridge is the cantilever rail bridge and is one of Scotland’s most recognisable landmarks.
The Road Bridge enjoyed a little bit of the limelight as it celebrated its 45th birthday at the beginning of September and they released a film as a way of marking the anniversary. It’s mostly the usual fare of shots of the structure, some shots of it being constructed and traffic moving across. But there are a couple of amazing sequences. At about 1 minute 13 seconds in and then again at about 1 minute 30 seconds in you can see the amount the bridge moves vertically as the wind and the traffic volume alter the very aspects of the bridge. It’s really amazing to see just how far it moves. You can see it by clicking here.
Those of you of a nervous disposition or anyone who’s not too keen on travelling across bridges should probably give it a miss.
