Scrapyard

Ghostly Face Photographed at a Birmingham Scrapyard.

While taking routine photographs for his uncle’s company website, a man named Wesley Topham captured what appears to be a ghostly face looking out a window of the company building located in Aston, Birmingham, England. Chris Ward, the company manager and Wesley’s uncle, says there have been strange occurrences over the years.

I’d think twice about going up there at night and one guy refused to go up there at all.” Chris told the Birmingham Mail. “One customer came out absolutely white-faced. He claimed something had come out of the wall.

When speaking about the photo, Chris says there’s something going on in room where the ghost was looking out of. “There’s definitely something going on. You go up there and the temperature drops so much you have to catch your breath. We’ve been here six years and when the previous owner visited, their first question was, ‘Have you seen the ghost?’.

The room the ghost was photographed is used to store car parts. Workers, who are admittedly scared to enter the room, have reported that documents have mysteriously moved. Unexplained loud bangs have also emanated from the room and the temperature reportedly plunges for no reason.

One medium, Julie Topham, commented on the company’s Facebook page, saying she believes the spirit of a little boy haunts the building. “It’s a boy, such a sad soul.” She wrote. “He was very hungry and left to fend for himself. He got trapped and burned in a fire.” It’s also said that the spirit of a woman haunts the store room inside the Victorian era building.

One could argue that the face is merely a reflection in the window. However, due to the buildings old age, one could also argue that a spirit could’ve become attached to the property at some point in time. 

Personally, I’m leaning a bit more towards this being a reflection, but I can’t say for sure if that what it truly is. What do you think? Does this image show an actual spirit? Or is there a conventional explanation for this mysterious figure?

So Chrissie’s back on the Thursday 17th at the latest as that’s her court day. Robert’s obviously gonna be around and there’s no mention of Aaron so he’s probably still away (as expected).

Find it funny that Adam arranges an emergency baptism for his (not) kid and Aaron’s not gonna be there. I don’t understand why they didn’t just have Adam fall out with Aaron over the affair because they have literally zero to do with each other anymore. Tbh they should of let the scrapyard shut down too. Just cut all ties because they obviously have no interest in having them involved with each other unless it’s for the sake of it.

Two weeks away for Aaron at least, please tell me he’s back the week after! Danny’s gone on his holiday today so Aaron’s gonna probably be off-screen again for a bit at some point at the end of October/early November. So if it’s any later he’s gonna be back for a matter of a few weeks then gone again (although nothing is to say Danny’s holiday means Aaron’s off screen for long as they film out of sequence but still.)

I’m happy for Danny to be getting a well deserved break but I’ll be happy when he’s on screen for weeks on end again!

A group of enterprising employees at a scrapyard in Jinan City, China are using salvaged materials from their own facility to create an awesome army of giant Transformers. It all started back in 2010 when one ambitious part-time employee at the scrapyard created a towering recycled replica of Optimus Prime (previously featured here):

“The PR and marketing student said he wanted to make something ‘eye-catching’ using discarded parts. “I thought if people could see something spectacular made from junk, it would highlight what we do here and we could get more customers,” he said. Li was right. The robot became immensely popular, winning a lot of praise from locals.”

That first scrap metal Autobot received so much press and attention from passers-by that Li decided to build a second one. After that other workers decided to get involved and keep the effort going. In the space of just 4 months they’d built over 40 Transformers whatever materials they could get their hands on at work, such as parts from old cars and motorcycles. And they aren’t simply stationary figures - all of the mechanical limbs are posable.

They start off by downloading an animated image from the internet. “Before starting the robot manufacturing, we do not delineate our drawings,” said Guojun Long, one of the craftsmen. A large amount of what we do depends on our imagination, because each robot looks different and the same parts cannot be used.”

Each recycled robot is for sale, priced around 100,000 yuan ($16,000 USD). And just in case you’re worried that the yard might sell out of giant scrap-bots before you can get over there yourself, don’t worry, they workers are still making more.
