Re: watching the lemming at abbey road

Was just taking a look. People really are stupid. I can just imagine some of the swearing that goes on in some of the cars/trucks.

Just saw one guy walk out in front of a truck and stand stock still. The truck stopped and the guy just stood there. Truck started moving again and the guy scarpered real fast

Beatles fans; they stand still because they are trying to recreate the scene from the album cover - see picture

OK, I am old enough (as in I know who the Beatles are) to have figured that out. But stepping out in front of a truck and then just standing there????

About "OK, I am old enough (as in I know who the Beatles are) to have figured that out." Just checking

About "But stepping out in front of a truck and then just standing there???" Sometimes good to gave those genes removed from the gene pool (see Darwin awards)

Re: watching the lemming at abbey road

The zebra crossing isn't even in the same place any more AFAIK. Plonkers.

What next? Nirvana fans throwing their babies into the local lido?

Re: watching the lemming at abbey road

Someone posted this webcam link a few months ago, with a similar meaning thread title.

Hard to believe what folks seek out, on the internet - twice in a few months.

I preferred the live version, when I was living just up the road - always fun approaching the crossing with a twitchy accelerator pedal.

I once lived near there too, but years before the Abbey Road album was released.
