London Eye done gone broked.

I do hope nobody was riding, though aren't its carriages all posh and stocked with food and stuff?

I hope power comes back soon.

Oh. I thought you were saying they were out of money.

Don't they have an emergency hand crank?

When'd this happen? I don't think I'd wanna "hand crank" that thing though..... ;)

Done gone broked??? My cousins in Flurrrda would say the real southern way to say it is "done broke".

BoT - Seems like "loss of power" are the rage right now. Cali seems to be the trendsetter.

No, there is no food, and they aren't really that posh. It's just a big glass pod with a bench in the middle to sit down on. If the pod is full, not everyone can sit down at the same time.

Do you have a link to a story?

I can't find a story that mentions the Eye, specifically, but MSNBC just showed some video of it while reporting on London's wannabe-like-new-york-city blackout.

Antuan -- hey, I tried. I'm from Long Island, so the whole southern belle thing is a bit of a stretch for me.

Before the blackout the London Eye was good for a more trivia headline today.

Check this picture of an artist balancing ontop of one of its gondolas for a whole round.

Wannabe New York? Hmm. OK.

Anyway, there are generators on the London Eye, and if they (or the motors) fail, it can also be pushed round manually.
