The Window Washing competition of the Darwin Award Olympics

Wednesday, January 25, 2012
Master Cleaners Ltd has a post How Not To Clean A Window that shows numerous nincompoops endangering themselves to wash a window. I've only swiped a couple of their pictures for this post -- there are more, as well as free quotes if you happen to live in London and need your house or pub cleaned, at the Master Cleaners site.

Update: by the way, I just noticed that this is post number 5,000 at Flares.

Wow - 5,000. I should start posting again.

Yea you should.

You're showing up on our list of contributors. I wonder what happened? Looking at the control panel there is an editor listed without either a name or an email -- I'm guessing that was you.

You must have gotten glitched. Drop me a note through the contact button or email ambisinistral at gmail dot com and I'll straighten it out.

Yes, congratulations. Life (and intellect and interests) are not leaving me the time I used to devote to trying to cook up posts but the few times I've wanted to develop something I've been reminded that I no longer seem to have access to posting at Flares. Then, rather than doing something about that I just carry on with whatever.

You were a wierd situation in that you were listed as an admin twice -- one with email and one without.

I deleted the Knucklehead without an email. see if you can login now. If not shoot me an email and I'll delete the other one and re-invite you. It may have something to do with blogger profiles getting mixed up or some such snafu.

Very interesting blog post, I read it on my old computer, but despite this fact, I enjoyed reading it.
