A story I just heard on the news, there is a new skyscraper building in the financial district (The City) of London, England, which, because of the curvature of its design is causing intense heat in certain parking spots which is melting cars. It acts just like a magnifying glass by reflecting intense heat onto the road.
A man claimed his Jaguar was damaged and since then several more people have come forward to report problems. A you can see from this picture, in the sun it is absolutely blazing. It is known as the Walkie Talkie building, I have no idea why. The article also has a picture of the melted car.
I am not sure how much blogging I will be doing over the next few days. So if I’m not around, see ya later. We actually leave on Friday but I will be a tad busy today.
Just reading the ingredients I liked the sound of this. Won’t be trying it til I come home again of course.
