Lightbulb You'd Prefer an Astronaut

British poster for Hitchcock's 1935 version of The 39 Steps...
Stoodley Pike is a 1,300-foot (400 m) hill in the south Pennines, noted for the 121 feet (37 m) Stoodley Pike Monument at its summit, which dominates the moors above Todmorden in West Yorkshire, England.. The monument was designed in 1854 by local architect James Green, and completed in 1856 at the end of the Crimean War..Pont de l'Alma (Alma Bridge in English) is an arch bridge in Paris across the Seine...

Many fell races visit the Pike, primarily those organised by Todmorden Harriers including the Noonstone, Hebden Bridge, Shepherd's Skyline and the Stoodley Pike Fell race..The Pennine Way (Britain's first National Trail, opened in 65) passes Stoodley Pike..Stoodley Pike Monument can be easily seen on the horizon, when one stands in front of Beacon Hill, in Halifax, West Yorkshire..In recent years the entrance to the tower has been re-paved and a seat has been provided to the southwest of the monument..Stoodley Pike Monument contains a spiral staircase of 39 steps, accessed from its north side... have to be a bastard to make it...Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives.. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that.. That's what's insane about it..and that's a factoid...
