In the middle of this picture is the totem pole. A woman climbing it dislodged a rock which crushed her partner's skull. She hauled him up to a ledge and secured him, abseiled down, swam to the bottom of the sheer 200m cliff, free climbed up to where the picture was taken, and ran a tough 7km to raise the alarm. He survived, with brain damage and paraplegia, but went on to complete the climb several years later (with aids).

Digging ditches up Tobin's track.
Nasty new phone scam.
First, a voice synth call saying Spark technical support have detected hacking on my internet connection. Dial 1 to talk to support.
Then another call from "Peter Wilson", with subcontinental accent. Says he's from Spark, but
hangs up when asked for a number to call him back.
That feeling when a recursive function works first time. 🎆
Soggy blossom, boys.
I am a man of constant sorrow.
