There is a white ghost bike near me where someone was killed recently, quite a prominent location :(
I have put some flowers on it several times

I remember the tragic case quite well (some years ago now!) - I live not far from where it happened.

What's not often reported, is that Marie was on her way to a peaceful protest in Brighton - against the arms trade. I think she would have approved, and been proud to have taken part in what is happening today.
Suppose that this room is a lift. The support breaks and down we go with ever-increasing velocity.
Let us pass the time by performing physical experiments...
