Last part of 2020. I smoke the smoke, and have good expectations far ATS (North-California reskin). May the good year 2021 come in!

I've split discussion about the 2021 protests and riots in Washington DC from this to a separate topic.

England, its a bit cold at the moment with snow throughout the North.

a rather hair raising moment for a bus driver caught on camera, over in Halifax not too far from me; https://imgur.com/gallery/ii5VXQ7

Driver may have needed a clean pair of pants after that. Bus appears to have 0 on its rear display, which tends to mean a not in service bus, so no passengers to worry about at least

I so hope this rumour is true!
Apparently Rockstar may be working on remasters of Grand Theft Autos Vice City, GTA III & San Andreas. Would absolutely love that, would be amazing!

In Sweden, we have a TV commercial that has run uninterrupted since 2001, with a new "episode" every one or two weeks.

The commercial is for a Swedish grocery store chain called ICA. It's about the daily life in a regular ICA store in an unspecified city in Sweden. The manager, ICA-Stig, has been played by 3 actors including the newest one who joined just a week ago. In that sense, it's our own Doctor Who. :mrgreen:

One of the actors, his name is Paul Tilly, has played the same character in these ads since the very beginning. That's dedication!

He should be on a stamp! I'll notify the postal company immediately.

It's great that you post here, DrWho42, but even in the Thread of Randomness we do appreciate a tiny bit of context. When you just post a photo with no caption or explanation, it is difficult for others to engage. It would be great if you could include a short explanation, or a question, or similar to your photos. :)

So its snowed a bit in the UK, especially in parts of Scotland.

Apparently snow brings out the idiots of the country, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland- ... l-55950942
Who on earth thinks this is a safe way to drive a car?!

We've had a fair bit of snow in Stockholm, more than most winters, and I have never been happier that my car is parked in a garage. The temperature is also above 0 in the garage, so any snow I may pick up whilst outside will have melted away by the time I drive out again. It's the best type of posh! :mrgreen:

Yes, yes it has. There’s a road here somewhere, and a garden here somewhere too...

It was also -23 degrees C down the road in Braemar the other night, the coldest in over 10 years and the coldest night in February since the 1980s. Here it was a slightly milder -13!

Enjoy real snowy and frosty winter. This is very rare these days. I am personally delighted every time it is freezing and snowing outside. Without this, winter seems fake.
