Five things to do today - 22 January

  • Comment
Free drink - plane sailing - snitch - London mime - new bike

Free drink
Londoners can visit the South Bank with added interest this month, more accurately with vouchers for free drinkies. You have to join the Southbank Centre website and they'll email you a set of print-outable vouchers.

Plane sailing
There's this coastguard video on YouTube of the miraculous evacuation of that US Airways plane in the Hudson with people on the wings and the first ferries arriving. You can imagine what the people on the port wing thought when the first ferry started picking up passengers from the starboard wing.

There could be a patch of silver lining for architectural redundantees. Snitch to the Business Software Alliance about your former practice being a bit lax about software licensing, lurk inconspicuously in the street and watch the vanload of heavies break in the former office doors. And buy a coffee with the thirty pieces of silver.

London mime
This is London's second week for mime – surely the minimalists' fave form of theatre.

New bike
Don't know how electric motor-assisted pushbikes sit with the Green fraternity but can I suggest that it is ageist to object to them. Now we have the aptly named Tailwind from bike manufacturer Schwinn. Shown at the giant consumer electronics show, CES, earlier this month it is due in Europe in the spring.
