Friday Brain Teaser (3)

An interesting sight - the panorama that is Bristol's Watershed, and in the background, the new Radisson Hotel.

For today's Brain teaser, however, a simple question:

Yes, the photo is awful... but, is it just us, or is there something amiss with this view?

(Comments about cycle lanes will be deleted as they only inspire the BEP to heights of journalistic expertise not generally seen outside London or New York).

The window of the Vauxhall makes a very good mirror for checking out creases on shirts

Adam said...

Is the guy looking in the window a wayward youth casing the car for celebrity endorsed mobile phone, wearing one of those hoodies that dissappear when photographed, a bit like the lycra that dissappears in photos, particularly photos taken by the Daily Mail with the caption Lycra Lout?

SteveL said...

Are the people on the pavement in fact lycra louts, and only a trick of the lighting hiding the fact that they are cycling on the pavement?

Jon Rogers said...

Where should I start?

A green light with a cycle on it? Is it right that the council should be funding such blatant political messages?

A bollard, red tarmac and some sort of segregation with a traffic light on it reducing what could be an excellent piece of dual carriageway that could be speeding cars towards Park Street.

And finally the red car pauses, puzzled and asks a local resident whether he agrees that, yet again, Cycling City has gone too far?

SteveL said...

How about the car R140GDV is in fact a prototype unmanned vehicle in an urban environment; however its software team forgot that some bike lanes have bollards in them, so it is paused while it tries to decide what to do now?

"Shouldn't the double yellow lines be joined-up?

Otherwise you could easily squeeze in a Smart Car."

I like the fact the car has different coloured wing mirrors. Obviously the driver has done this before and someone has taken umbridge and knocked off the old one, LOL!!!

I know whats wrong - the car isn't parked close enough to the bollard.
