Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
Could be too late for some of the Firebox team…but not for you, internet travellers…
Julie Dickinson, June 2012
The wait is over. And the verdict is finally in. The winner of our Iconic London June Architecture Challenge is @rapidandi with his sublime image of two of London’s truly iconic pieces of architecture, one old and one new, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Millennium Bridge. Some detailed editing reveals the clarity of St Paul’s against a blurred backdrop of the financial centre, as if a beacon shining through time and through politics - especially resonant given the recent events around the Cathedral. All set against a beautiful pinky blue sky. But what we also liked about this image is that it also included another important element in London’s life: people. So huge congratulations to And(i)y! And a big well-done also to all the finalists and indeed to everyone who tagged. It was such a difficult task picking the finalists given the really high standard of entries. And thanks again to @firebox for their kind prize donation which Andy will be enjoying very soon! Thanks to @rugfoot who did a wonderful job with this contest! (Taken with Instagram)

We like these Game of Thrones political parody ads - above is our favourite; “Joffrey Baratheon: What a BASTARD!”
Fans of the show: why not endulge in a little shopping over your lunch break and snap up one of our Replica Iron Thrones for just £20K? (We pride ourselves on our low, low prices)
Look at this human-scale giant Hot Wheels double loop track. There are stunts and there are STUNTS. This stunt is actually happening on June 30 at this year’s X Games event in LA next week.
All the guy needs to do is keep his speed precisely at 52 mph. Too slow - the car will drop, upside down smashing to smithereens on the track floor. Too fast - the driver will pass out then the car will drop, upside down smashing to smithereens on the track floor. This guy couldn’t even do it on a skateboard for pity’s sake.
Anyone familiar with Sid Meier’s glorious Civilization games will know how life-sappingly addictive they can be. But one-man has taken this dedication to a whole new level, with an ongoing 10-year plunder.
More alarmingly, it sounds like the world in the game could be a realistic portrayal of things to come. Come the year 3991 AD there are just 3 remaining superpowers;The Americans (predictable), The Celts (Braveheart spirit gets you everywhere) and The Vikings (ok, maybe they’re a bit out of place) and the world has descended in to an inhabitable swampland contested over via near-constant pixelated nuclear warfare.
Here at Firebox towers we’ve been taking notes as we start our plan for world domination.
