'Sometimes I'm a huge panda, floating lazily down the stream of life, and sometimes I'm just a nasty old leek rotting between the couch cushions.' --John Stott

This morning I found Kibo's Virtual Reality Tour of Traffic Cones

"These "safety" cones are designed to be highly visible, but because of their ubiquity and meaninglessness, we've been ignoring them. And while we've been ignoring them they've been taking over the world."

I'm all for world domination. Hurrah for orange reflective traffic cones.

In Glasgow there's a tradition involving traffic cones and the statue of St. George. Basically, someone played a prank many years ago and put cones on his head and head of his horse. At first everyone was outraged, but every time someone took them down they were put back up. Eventually it became a tour highlight. Now, there is never a time when the statue is not wearing traffic cones. When famous businessmen and celebrities take tours of the city they are always taken to the statue since its supposed to promote some sort of culture.

I find it to be rather strange myself.

Welcome to the blogging world. :)

I do believe that's the same site that Eb pointed out at the beginning of the summer in the alien Wittenberg Floor debate. He said that the aliens probably looked like those cones.
Oh, and you're blog subtitle . . . oh dear . . .

Actually, Ryan emailed the cone documentary link to many of us Catacombians last spring, and I merely saw fit to bring it back into the spotlight last summer. I first read it at about 4 in the morning in Fcluster, and I laughed so hard that I think I scared some people. Speaking of which, isn't it 'phlegm'?
