Burning shop + first youtube!

leave a comment »

Yesterday night I walked past a shop where a tea light started a fire! What do you do nowadays in these situations? You make a video!! Exactly. See below.

It’s interesting to see how quickly such fire spread. First it started with a napkin, then some weird white chipmunk/squirrel/bunny decoration, then the floor (because the poor chipmunk dropped on the floor and continued burning there). Within 3-4 minutes the whole store was pitch black from smoke.

So here’s my first youtube video. I don’t know why I made it that short!

Moving, Nido, etc!

Hey, I just moved into my new place! I have quite a big mess at the moment but that’ll settle 🙂

Here are some pics (from my new blackberry which has a terribly bad camera built in!):

One of the many markets directly in front of the house:

The close-by Gherkin seen through some ugly council buildings beside the flat:

And the new, massive Nido spitalfields student village house is built very close beside me.

Tomorrow morning/afternoon I’ll be moving to my new flat close to brick lane! Tonight I’m going to collect the keys. Oh oh, hopefully it’s going to be good :). I’ll post pictures of it soon.

How Stuff Works: Modified Recess Mech Loading

leave a comment »

Did you ever wonder how these hand towel machines in toilets do their unrolling-magic ?

I did and I found out how today, as I walked past an open hand towel machine. Inside was a diagram describing its new, perhaps illegally modified, version of its modified recess mech loading technique. Now, when looking at the diagram please remember that it’s only a sketch, as pointed out in the title of the graphic. A sketch, it’s not how it works in reality! Haha .. it’s not a fucking turbo jet engine, it’s unrolling a cotton towel!

Also North is up.

Anyway, here the sketch:
