Kerb" is the 2nd single from EchoBelly..Released 23rd October 1995...
Curb is the edge where a raised pavement/sidewalk/footpath, road median/central reservation, or road shoulder/hard shoulder meets an unraised street or other roadway..A series of Paving Acts from the House of Commons of Great Britain during the 18th century, especially the 1766 Paving & Lighting Act, authorized the City of London Corporation to create foot-ways along all the streets of London, to pave them with Purbeck stone (the thoroughfare in the middle was generally cobblestone) and to raise them above the street level with curbs forming the separation..Curbs may fulfill any or several of a number of functions.. They separate the road from the roadside, and discourage drivers from parking or driving on sidewalks and lawns. They also provide structural support to the pavement edge. Curbs can be used to channel runoff water from rain or melted snow and ice into storm drains...Most curb extends down into the ground below the pavement surface. The total height, including the buried portion, is often 16 inches (410 mm)..To facilitate street sweeping, the internal and external curvatures of the extended curb section are moderately graduated..Selena... have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won't have it! Is that clear? You think you've merely stopped a business deal. That is not the case! The Arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country, and now they must put it back! It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity! It is ecological balance! You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of dollars. Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, reichmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today.. That is the atomic and subatomic and galactic structure of things today!..
