A bill from 1957 I got as change.

Very fascinating information, but the salt at the end isn't nice

That's not just a bill. That's a silver certificate. It's not worth much more than the face value, but it's still really cool.

That’s #Mildy Ineresting ok I’ll show myself out now

Occasionally I’ve rec’d (I think pre 1962) quarters that are silver - you can hear the difference when they jingle - and they’re worth way more than a quarter

Kids are assholes. I’d be too worried someone would destroy it.

DIY Coffee Cup Clock in Hospital Staff Room

I made one of these for our coffee pots years ago. Housekeeping kept throwing it out :(

Did you write “do not discard” on it?

Until some inconsiderate fucknut uses those cups instead of opening a new sleeve. Fuck you Steve, I know it was you.

This explains why they are where they are-Damn that is smart!

The way these trees were planted

More about the tiles around the trees than the way the trees were planted, but it's a cool effect.

I thought the tile was snow at first

The seeming randomness of the tree placement, though, really enhances the appeal. It is a marvelous hybrid of greenspace and art installation.

I thought it was snow until I read your comment!

Over the years, the floor in the line to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower has been ground smooth.

They should probably sort that out

I was more worried about people slipping

Lots of kids dragging their feet cause they just wanted to do something cool but parents are making them look at buildings and climb.

Not a problem. That piece isn't very loaded compared to its size and the thickness of it isn't reduced much by this. If anything, it might slightly improve the fatigue strength of this particular area as a polished surface has less crack initiators than a rough surface.

This building caught fire and this is what it looked like after the fire was put out in below zero temperatures.

It caught on ice.

It was a cake factory, and they got carried away with the icing

Without barriers the British still know how to queue!

Without barriers the British still know how to queue!

Being British, and rarely travelling alone, I had never never really noticed how other countries aren't that fond of queueing until this year. I was flying to Cairo and had a stop over in Frankfurt, and when I came to boarding everyone just stood around, in like 5 different lines, pushing to get to the front. I literally didn't know what to do, so I just stood quietly to the side and waited for it to die down. After about five minutes there were about 10 other people behind me, all looking over in a mixture of confusion and disgust. Turns out I'm so British I had started a queue of other British people without realising. Obviously, being British, I didn't actually speak to them to find out, but I overheard a few 'cheers' that confirmed my suspicions.

It's like a national super power.

When a brit stands still, they form a queue of one.
