Aesop's Fable for Cast.Iron

According to Whom You Ask

A great city was besieged, and its inhabitants were called together to consider the best means of protecting it from the enemy.

A bricklayer earnestly recommended bricks as affording the best material for an effective resistance. A carpenter, with equal enthusiasm, proposed timber as a preferable method of defense. Then a currier stood up and said, “Sirs, I differ from you altogether: there is no material for resistance equal to a covering of hides; and nothing so good as leather.”


The leather salesmen from Flat.Earth are out banging the train drum again, see here.

  2. Eurostar: London to Paris in about 3 hours or less. FCC non-stop Cambridge to London 46 minutes. Guided bus Huntingdon to Cambridge Drummer Street 1 hour 06 minimum by Whippet service 5 (as it was before the Busway), 1 hour 07 by guided bus (not the 36 mins claimed by failed City Council candidate James Strachan...who may just have written this post).

    Now there's value for money from the Busway!!!

    Not sure which of us is really in the Flat.Earth camp...
