Edit: hope just the sunglasses emoji doesn't look insensitive. Just back that graffiti massively.

Didn't Fuel have that massive piece as you come into Paddington station a few years back? Might have been Fume.

Quite impressive how they pulled it off. I'm guessing they walked the length of the line from White City as the trains were off?

Met most of them back in the 90s. Most of my illegal days spent with the people i grew up with Rench who went on to setup HA with Aroe. Some train missions with Nema, Morn Heal TPG back in the day. I stopped all that though in the UK around the noughties as got into fair bit of trouble and they started handing out harsh prison sentences.

This evening at 20:48 GMT, NASA's Mars 2020 mission will break the atmosphere of the red planet, and will touch down on the Martian surface at 20:55 GMT. The mission's payloads are the Perseverance rover, the twin of the Curiosity rover that touched down with the 2012 Mars Science Laboratory mission, and a helicopter called Ingenuity. They're being dropped in the Jezero Crater, the site of an ancient Martian lake, to investigate the possibility of life on Mars, and to conduct the first ever powered atmospheric flight on the surface of another planet.

“When I told my mum I had been classed in the clinically obese category, she said: ‘Well perhaps this is the wake-up call you need’.” Laughing out loud

My Nike run app was showing truly impressive levels of calorie burning on runs and I eventually realised when I set it up I put my weight as 35 stone Oops

Jokers.

When brands or sites use 'imported' is annoying, and actually suggests to me they contract out a load of sweatshops and might not even know where it's made.
