    Excellent factual proof of the efficacy of vaccination. This should be made compulsory to stop those bugs returning. They’re all still out there waiting…

    Personally, I find it fascinating that five people in St. Petersburg died from falling icicles in a single year.

    Christopher: We have had near-deaths in Oslo, Norway. The thing is, icicles form on the ledges of buildings – snow lands on roofs and are heated by them, flow downwards and gradually build up on the ledges – and when the temperature rises, they fall down like giant spears. It’s pretty lethal.
