    York Floods - I love this photo, but ,,

    Northern Britain is well flooded at the moment and York have been under a good few feet of water , but is this photo possible ?


    Astonishing: A woman cleans the inside window of her wine bar as floodwaters rise halfway up the window in York after the the rivers Foss and Ouse burst their banks.

    Very unlikely. Usually door and window frames are not water proof. And the weight of the water would be a pressure on breaking those glass frames as well.

    Bollox, I believe that's a Upvc window without any openers, totally sealed.

    Edit, openers means opening frames/windows.

    under satefy regulations it probably needs to be able to stop neaderthal pissed up pommy cnuts breaking in during their demostrations of heredity stupidity , so thus being reinforced to a level such as that it could well be a true photo

    Aren't wine bars only for poofs, Tax? (Not that I'm judging)

    this way i get best of both worlds terry.

    you couldnt handle europe terry, your brain wouldnt cope. you would be flummoxed by the sophistication, the choices, the service, the value, the friendliness and the politeness. it really puts thailand to shame.

    you are happier and less challenged living amongst the simple and uncultured. a bowl of noodles, a bottle of beer, and a street lined with stalls selling tat. you are monosyllable man, a child in a country of children where watching ones back is a necessity.

    the atmosphere was more pub than wine bar. we had a good lunch there and would go there again.

    Surely if anyone opened a door on the same level as that window, the water would flood in?

    or a pub whatever. Business will not necessarily be normal but it will be OK.
    It is the way Brits handle an aberration.

    That's an Only Fools & Horses themed bar, it was on the news. It's called ''plonkers'' which sparked huge hilarity among the childish, immature Uk press/public who still giggle at boobs and the word ''sex''
