High Wycombe gets less boring

I got this e mail this morning from a friend who lives in the sleepy English town of High Wycombe:


A house got raided a few streets away from our place this morning and two brothers arrested in connection with the airplane bomb plot! There are police everywhere and choppers in the skies. A guy with a gun was standing outside our place. They raided some other places nearby and there's rumours they found explosives stored in the woods. Scary. It feels like we're at war.

You guys should visit!


At least Aido can't complain about how boring High Wycombe is now.

The town's previous claim to fame was as the place where the cover photo for Motorhead's Ace of Spades album was taken. The band members had never visited America and wanted to have a look, so they dressed up as cowboy gunslingers and demanded to be flown to the Wild West for the album cover photoshoot. Their record label looked at its expenses account and drove them to a sand quarry on the outskirts of High Wycombe instead...

Well, 'Aido' should be ashamed of himself for treating a combat situation like fun and games...

'Aido' would like to object to the spurious elaborations on his email. Man with gun outside indeed.

Actually there were choppers in the sky, but I wasn't around to see it. And you forgot to mention they closed the station due to a 'suspicious package'.

And 'Big Rig Down Under'? Surely it can't be a coincidence that the most popular book in the Rosehill College reading room is commenting here.
