    Health warning: Bring sunglasses

    by JayGatsby951 Written Oct 30, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Marlow, as in London, for some reason English men consider it the height of fashion to wear bright pink shirts...every day. Please bring a good pair of sunglasses if walking along the High Street; it's not worth risking damage to your precious eyesight if you're not used to seeing this remarkably bright apparel.

    Driving conditions in Marlow

    If you drive a sports car and value your car's suspension (and your spine), try to steer clear of Marlow- The roads are terribly rough- amazing for a town with so many wealthy residents etc.

    Marlow is full of surprises- as is England in general.

    Marlow High Street

    by Elodie_Caroline Written Jun 22, 2006


    It doesn't matter what time of day or night that you come down here, it is always full of cars! You see all the 4x4's and everyone else in their cars nudging in to the smallest space possible, or holding up the rest of the traffic in hope that someone might actually move their car out. It wouldn't be so bad, but there are actually quite a few car parks very near to the High Street, but obviously they are all too lazy to walk a few yards or more.

    It's dangerous - checkout the first aid bus!

    First Aid for rowing boats???

    Judging by the size of the first aid bus, Marlow must be a very dangerous place! I have neever seen a first aid bus this big!

    it was actually on hand for the rowers in case anyone needed urgent attention for instance after falling in, crushing fingers between boat and oar, damaging a back etc. But it looks like they could get a rower and their boat inside if needs be!

    A more normal first aid bus is ambulance size (the size of a transit van).

    Parking your wheelchair????

    Parking your wheelchair???

    I have to admit, I have never ever seen a sign like this before, and it leaves me truly puzzled!

    If you don't think too carefully, this may not sound such a bad idea, having a place to park your wheelchair - after all few other places are kind enough to think of this...

    But then what??? You get a miracle cure and wander round the town under your own steam??? Somehow I think somebody hasn't really thought this one through properly... Needless to say when I saw this sign, the space in front of it was empty.

    If you push someone in, well what happens next???

    Hold tight...

    If you push one of your mates into the stream and they are soaking wet from head to toe, well what do you think is likelyt to happen next???

    They won't think twice about jumping back into the water to make sure you get the return soaking, especially if you are still stuck on the end of a rope that is hanging out over the water.

    However if you took my earlier advice and were sat on the stick, they may find it tough to dislodge you!

    However you still have to jump in the water to get back on the bank, as you won't be getting any help, that's for sure!

    Going, going...

    Please enlarge this picture!!!

    You could see this coming, couldn't you...

    Well sure enough, once they realised that they couldn't get back to dry land as the rope had stopped swinging, they then thought they could ask their mates to help pull them in...

    Well of course no assistance was given. At this point they started to push and shove eachother to see if they could dislodge the other into the water.

    Well who was likely to win that one???

    If you swing...

    Swinging out over water...

    If you decide to swing on a rope over a stream, then it is a wise idea to sit on the stick that has been tied to the bottom of the rope. If you don't, there is a good chance you may fall off. And if you do, you may get wet...

    Also, if you swing out over water, and the rope is tied right over the top of the water, don't keep swinging until the rope stops swinging. If you do, you may not be able to get back to dry land...

    Also... If you push you mater into the water, well just remember that by the time he falls off, he will be wet already, and you will be a sitting duck...

    Note:- The guy on the right is sat on a stick, the guy on the left is just hanging on...

    Now see the next tips...
