This one deserves a golf clap.
Our recent shock revelations of HP's apparent desire to bury our beloved home planet under the maximum packaging possible have attracted much reader feedback regarding just how the world's biggest consumer of cardboard and bubblewrap intends to destroy Mother Earth. Mysterious object spotted <p>on Google Until now, however …
Peterborough is a city that requires special permission from six archbishops before you build anything over one metre tall in case it blocks someone's view of the cathedral. While this thankfully limits the number of high-rises to one, it also makes the entire city crap.
Proud to have escaped.
As a Peterboroughian (or 'Scum' as we're sometimes known) I can confirm that this package has been there for some time. Geoff Capes originally tried to deliver it when he was working for the Royal Mail in Peterborough, but the intended recipient not being at home, he tossed it over the fence into next door's garden. Unfortunately the Google maps resolution isn't high enough to see the multitude of red rubber bands he also left at the scene.
Nowt like a bit of a PlayMobil humour first thing on't near-to-xmas-monday morn!
Very apt, I thought, when someone above labelled this as a 'Post Modern Revisionist Nativity Play' as its the closest thing I've come to a nativity play in about 30 years.
Factual too, not unlike recent Top Gear review factual-ness.
Optimus (Mr) Prime RULES!
glad to see that there's as much work being done in El Reg Towers on xmas week as there is in my office here
i hope you haven't gone to all this effort in the hope that it will placate us for the rest of the week so you can knock off early for xmas - we're expecting a playmobile story tomorrow and wednesday now
All HP boxes have HP tape and I see none (Don't tell me they don't I have ordered from them for years never once have they not used their HP branded clear tape)? Where is the HP sticker on the ram? This obviously is not sent by HP but someone who has received the box and recycled it by sending it on.
Well, it would be round here. I'm typing less than a mile away, and the box blocks most of the Tesco depot out. How we love them, with their fridge engines running 24 hours a day, the crazed Polish HGV drivers hammering up and down the local roads, and the hordes of Lithuanian fork lift drivers banging in and out of the trailers. Other amenities nearby include the local traveller site, with its picturesque rubbish moraine, and further afield the McCains factory emits its exciting aromas of chip fat and boiled sewage. Nature has its place with the abandoned brickpits and the River Nene to the south, out of which are dredged cars, sometimes containing the occupants, and on one occasion a horsebox, still containing its occupant. Bright spots include the "Argos Cenotaphs", set up to commemorate those too drunk to steer, swim, or breathe under water.
Peterborough, so good they named it once.
I miss out on some of the references being a Merkin and all, but still choked on my coffee at some of the images. St. Nick just delivered some playmobile figures for my kids and we just got a new digital camera, so I might have to put something together for the folks here across the pond...Wal*Mart+iPhone maybe...
DIMM is in fact a direct Japanese translation for 'object requiring substantial over packaging, thus rendering its appearance larger than it is’. This has led to a range of DIMM underpants being created in Japan, which have proved exceedingly popular amongst Japanese men.
Isn't everything on the web true?
