    Just hearing this on the radio, apparently small businesses in the area have been complaining that this has also been scorching doorways and carpets setting on fire xD*
    * admittedly I wouldn't be so amused if it were my business/car/etc

    As I write this there's a guy who's phoned in.. Tiles cracking, paint literally bubbling, carpets smoldering.. This is a hair salon by the sounds of it, he mentions how the 'smell of burning hair' isn't good for business xD

    Edit: Apparently, the accidental-parabolic-mirror is throwing all this light onto pretty much the same spot the Great Fire of London started.

    Maybe it'll sort out the hipster plague?

    Nothing short of Nuclear Fallout will do that..
    Which makes me think.. Could the Brotherhood of Steel be counted as hipsters, since they're all over pre-war tech?

    How? Tell them all that location will be 'cool' when the building is sorted out?

    What a wonderful game! So so many nights multiplayer lost to this! (not as many as total annihilation though!)

    You buggers, I've just completed RA3 - might have to fire up RA2 tonight!

    This story makes me laugh though, I wonder what bright spark architect thought that up.

    Unbelievable... thing is, I can't think of a way they can fix it without taking the curve out of the glass, which would be a major overhaul at this point...

    Better to just fit it with a series of mirrors and use it to provide free sun tans to Essex (though I suspect the economy might collapse with all those dried up sales of fake tan and tanning beds)

    I'd suggest seeing how big of a marshmallow we can make and carting it down there
