Myths? Britain's Got Talent.

John Lukic was in the Munich air crash 

The one about the lad giving his girlfriend one up the wrong un on the white sofa and her having an accident then blaming it on the dog to his parents so they got the dog put down. 

At uni there was always a storey about a lad who knobbed about 20 women in freshers week, but nobody ever knew who it was

And a lad who blew all his loan in the first couple of weeks then spent the rest of the term eating potatoes and ended up in hospital, but nobody ever knew who it was

As a kid we were told on good authority that a mound on the north side of the A6 between Four lane Ends and Chequerbent had the remains of thousands of animals buried under it from the last outbreak of foot and mouth or summat.

Highly illegal for the obvious reasons of pollution, disease etc but this has gone on probably still does on the more remote farms and it causes all manner of problems when the skeletons are unearthed.

There was a works at the intersection of Weston Street, Crescent Road and Bradford Road - diagonal from the foundry opposite and still intact on that old aerial photo of Burnden on the 'model' thread.

Anyhow the story goes that the subterranean floors are still intact, the area has never been developed as they're full to the brim with arsenic and all sorts of other toxic industrial shit.

Growing up we were told The Brooklyn was the home of the Walkers, and Walkers Institute (Southfields) was the home of the family who owned the aforementioned foundry.

Dunno who lived in Lever Grange, probably an idiot son of Lord Lever.

The big spooky house, now with horrid white UPVC windows next to Southfields was the home of the heiress to Johnston's Paints, she was a bonafide ragged recluse, Howard Hughes style.

Watched the Eminem vid and thought it was a full blown half pounder with the works plus grits being a southern boy.
