Just like Brunel, without the top hat. ;)

Couple of BP guys. They thought it funny I knew who Brunel was.

I think people who watch Top Gear and/or Clarkson's non-Top Gear productions are a little predisposed to know about Ismbard Kingdom Brunel.

I must say, Brunel is one of my absolute favorites characters of the industrial revolution. I also have a "soft" spot for Joseph Bazelgette, the engineer behind the London suages. He was one of the first engineers to think about safety in any other way than "economic security". And it was still more dangerous to work on the suage than being a soldier at Waterloo, a lot more dangerous..

Sigh.. me and my fascination for mechanics.. :)

This, however, is in fact a facehugger (and is a quite old picture and was taken with a POS camera that ate batteries and sucked eggs in low light situations like that). Louis Tussaud's was museum in Grand Prairie, Texas.

This is from my crappy camera phone on an inter-island ferry. (I am saving up for a better camera)
