When we were in Venice recently we came across four brilliant pieces of graffiti with a mysterious logo attached to each one. I uploaded the images to Flickr in the following order: 1, 2, 3, 4. Almost as soon as I uploaded the last picture my Flickr contact Simon Crubellier from London recognised the pictures as the work of a stencil graffiti artist called C215. Simon added the tag c215 to the picture and within minutes C215 had asked me to add the pictures to his group on Flicker devoted to his art.
The video shows C215 giving London the same treatment: simply amazing!

Three quotes relevant to the current economic crisis:
"There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers." Richard Feynman.It seems history really does repeat itself...
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies." Thomas Jefferson.
"Blessed are the young for they shall inherit the national debt." Herbert Hoover.
