Given that there are people on here that believe crash helmets and hi vis are dangerous these kinds of posts don't surprise me.

I think the question has frustrated people because there is little chance of anyone recognising the building.It not famous like Taj Mahal.ts like a forum member posting a photo of a friend taken when they went to school and saying
Who is this?
There is little chance of getting answer right and hence people feel cheated.I would like to know the purpose of it.

well this sort of thing is a game, if it was me I would be tempted to construct some thing to see how long before it was rumbled or not. or to choose some thing that looks so false but is true to wait for the responses. all just a bit of fun. stop taking your self so seriously :wink:
