Sitting on the tube this morning, and I thought, with all the underground tunnels etc, why doesn’t the whole city just collapse into a big hole? Whats keeping it all upright? Pretty much every square mile over the city has tunnels running underneath it. Hmmm, interesting.
Yeah, ok I was bored & Metro wasn’t doing it for me this morning…or any morning for that matter.
Good point, I thnk thats the pressing concern for the day. Eejits, I don’t trust the post office to send stuff I sell on Fleabay, why some civil cervant thinks it’s ok to just bung a stamp on something like that beggars belief.Anyway, don’t they have these machines that can transfer data instantly…I think they are called computers :w00t:
Normally because foundations go around and far deeper than the tunnels or pipe-work.
I’ve always wondered why we don’t start building underground like the Japanese are starting to do, or why we don’t have a big dome over London so we’re not affected by bad weather. A bit like in 2000AD.
Frankly, if most of tower hamlets and the east end was swallowed up by a big hole, along with many of the crap buildings around waterloo to Victoria, I dont think anyone would bat an eyelid. Some of the buildings around that area are only fit for a bulldozer anyway.
Just how much of london would you like to bulldoze?? Me probably about 60% of it and start again. Get rid of all those post war system built jobbies and start from scratch!!
