Some of you may know 'Spaghetti Junction' - if not Google it. It is a major highway intersection in Birmingham, UK. Beneath it are a network of cycle paths, canals, drainage culverts and the homes of dossers, druggies, pimps and whores. So where better to spin some wire wool? Foreground is the canal, overhead is the M6 motorway being held up by the big pillar on the right. The footbridge crosses the canal. The white stripe coming in from the right is the bus going past! My mate AJ is spinning on the bridge - that's me in the lower spiral. Look closely and you can see the sparks bouncing off me! I'm now sporting a bald patch where my hair caught fire and my cheapo fleece jacket melted onto my neck. Oh, and I burnt my finger - badly! Great fun though!!
