Last week's numbers magically transformed into a picture...
6 hour closure between 1am and 7am at Gatwick, Heathrow and London City due to that pesky volcano again
260 or so elephants turn up in London and only a handful of them seem to be London-themed
96 London locations that are on Twitter, lovingly mapped by Londonist
130 pounds weight in the old school diving suit worn by Lloyd Scott for the world's slowest marathon ever. On display at our Museum of the Month, the Maritime Galleries
22 staff and contractors were affected by the chemical incident at the Science Museum, which led to its evacuation and closure for the day
6 + 260 X 96 + 130 - 22 = 25,644 which is a beautifully composed view of the Millennium Bridge as taken by mad photos for the Londonist Flickr pool. Cool.
This Week In London’s History
Random London Quote Of The Week
A mighty mass of brick, and smoke, and shipping,
Dirty and dusty, but as wide as eye
Could reach, with here and there a sail just skipping
In sight, then lost amidst the forestry
Of masts; a wilderness of steeples peeping
On tiptoe through their sea-coal canopy;
A huge, dun cupola, like a foolscap crown
On a fool's head - and there is London Town.
Lord Byron, Don Juan
