    They’re introducing a new pound coin later this year and it’s likely that these are going to break shopping trolleys

      Fear not! I have sent you salvation on April 16th. At least sth that’ll work in continental Europe (that’s the place with the breakfast in case you didn’t know).

    It’s going to cost £20 million to change all the trolleys, parking meters etc so they take the new coins 🙂

  • stripygoose says:

    “The shopping trolley is one of the most successful marketing inventions of the 20th century. It came into existence in 1937 as a by-product of a new kind of shopping experience popularised in the 1920s: the supermarket.”

    “British shoppers made do with a primitive wooden frame on wheels that could support two baskets, until the shopping trolley arrived in the UK in 1950 at Sainsbury in Croydon. Since then, trolleys have changed very little.”

    Thus confirming our theory that all knowledge can flow from being involved in mailart.
