The Millennium Dome

 
Today, I give you what would happen if you pulled up the Eiffel Tower and jammed it upside-down through a pudding basin - The Millenium Dome. Surely everyone in the world heard somehting about the shennanigans surrounding the building the dome? Here is some more info and and arial photo of it. Ultimatly, I'm pleased that it was built, even though nobidy seems to be able to find a real use for it at the moment. One of the funniest stories has to be the failed Diamond Robbery in November 2000. Never mind the reporting, just think Keysone Cops.

The Dome will ultimately be remembered for more, but right now here in the UK it is still considered a White Elephant designed by committee.

I like the way it's been shot from the car. It's probably how most people "visit" it.

Yes, you are right. Despite its similarity to an alien spacecraft, it is tucked away from easy access so peole largely ignore it. Ah yes, also, there IS no reason to visit.....
