ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
The London Underground workers made a funny.

I think it’s probably from here http://twitter.com/binny_uk/status/248824180395614208/photo/1 originally
London Overground, not London Underground
just doesn’t have the same ring to it
It does if you’re Wombling free.
That means nothing to anyone who is not a Brit around in the 1970s.
Sure it does. All you have to is remember, remember, remember …
i thought this knowledge would be quite common by now. we should make good use of this data.
I am strongly in favour of renaming Tramlink to “Wombling Free” just so trains stopping at Wimbledon station can say “Change here for Underground, Overground, Wombling Free”
Not just Brit as the Wombles was also broadcasted in Australia.

someone should alert the fire service, or at least an ambulance, that’s a pretty serious burn.
You’ll need the map, because the trains are screwed……again
For people who have upgraded and find the built-in Maps unusable (like me, since they don’t include bus information for Quebec City), the web version of Google Maps works quite well.
…and that’s the rub:
Excellent, but shouldn’t it be:
AND USE GOOGLE MAPS
(or AND CARRY ON WITH GOOGLE MAPS)
Master of trolls.
Apple solves the Senkaku crisis
I think it will turn out to be close to the real solution. Since the islands themselves don’t matter,only the Exclusive Economic zones that extend from these islands, Japan gets one virtual Senkaku archipelago, China gets the other virtual archipelago, and sea floor gets divided as if there were two island chains: Japan gets half, China gets the other half, which is essentially where we started.
It’s at Hackney Wick London Overground station.
One London transport staff member makes a funny and chuckles to himself, boss at Apple bangs fist on table and smashes it to bits. “Remove that station from the Universe, NOW!”
Squads of Geniuses march out in perfect synchronisation, karate chopping the air a lot.
This. Needs a theme song, though.
It’s always highly enjoyable to see that users are actually willing to give apple some time to improve.
