@RobPN 

Information overload for this old goat!

 

This one was a well named double roundabout confusion near to where we used to live. We've all seen worse and fine if you knew it, but a real puzzle if not.

Re: Just for fun

On the subject of insane roundabouts, I only remember this one because once I actually drove through it.

I wonder what the person or people were taking when they designed it. Also what the person was taking who signed it off, plus what backhander they had.

Ooh you are cynical @Alex 

I think it looks rather interesting m'self and certainly easy to understand but hey, let's not to worry about it. Lets leave that to the bus driver. 😉

Is it a BAC TSR2

It never happened. Dogged by technical problems, cost overruns, political infighting, and bureaucratic ineptitude, the TSR-2 was cancelled after two dozen test flights

So, we've all noticed them I'm sure, but why do the F and J keys on our computer keyboards have little bumps on them?

Feel free to check. 🙂
