    So on Tuesday I was cycling down Tates Avenue towards Boucher when I noticed on the hill in front (is that Black Mountain? I have no idea) was a big letter 'M' in white, you know where the 'No Bush' thing was written? Then on Saturday I was cycling down there again and this time it was a big 'I'.

    Does anybody know what this is all about?

    ive noticed that too!! you can see them from millfield tech too. ive missed a few days but when they started the letters were:

    I - Day 1
    M - Day 2

    A - Day 4

    bit of a drawn out way to communicate....

    He's spelling out "Imagine" as a tribute to John Lennon (or somethiing).

    He'll be on Nolan tomorrow mornign to explain himself.

    If that's possible.

    That sounds like something Doc would do.

    It's E now, so he must be finishing.

    I thought it was gonna be Votáil Sinn Féin.

    these are literally above my house on the mountain as i live in ballygomartin area. i often wondered what these are. i know the 'quaker house'as its known is only a few hundred yards from the location of the letters. wonder if they are to do with it, but cant imagine that.

    really i am clueless to what they are. id like to know but.
    all i know is its a cunt to get freeview because of said mountain lol something big white letters wont help

    the writing's been there for months! when george bush came over there was some obligitory anti-bush message on it (can't remember what it was though), but apart from that it's always just one letter at a time.

    we tried to drive up to it once in the summer, but ended up getting incredibly lost so we've just looked at it from afar!
  14. avatar Chi-Lite
    Nah, it only started the other week.

    Sorry, I should have said. Oh dear, that's a bit of an abomination.

    There was writing up there last year also but I could never make it out.
  18. avatar Chi-Lite
    There's been writing put up there every so often for years.

    I believe the first occurence was a big giant "Votáil Sinn Féin", many years ago. After about a week some public-spirited citizen changed it to "Free the Weed".
    A priest from Corpus Christi went up and made a big giant crucifix for Easter week last year.

    Even local defunct West-Belfast band "The Weight" stuck their name up there one time some years back. I think someone changed that fairly promptly to "the Cock" or something similar.

    In short, it's not a new phenomenon. This is the first time I've seen someone spell out a word one letter at a time though. Makes it more difficult for people to work out what it's supposed to say, I'd imagine. why didn't he just write "Imagine" all at once? Maybe he just didn't have enough big white sheets.

    Didn't see one yesterday but today's was an A. What does that make it so far?
  20. avatar pauldoherty
    maybe he is spelling out.... THEY ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT THIS ON FASTFUDE :lol: :lol: :lol:
  21. avatar fastfude
    I wonder if he spelled ot some swearwords one letter at a time, would it count as some kind of public disorder offence?

    When Bush came over here a while ago wasnt there something up there as well?!
  24. avatar Chi-Lite
    Flip me, are people just moseying on and commenting on this without reading it?

    Yes. Yes there was. There was loads of other stuff there as well. Look.
  25. avatar JTM
    So far reading through the thread we have IMAGAVA
    If the V was meant to be a Y:


    IM A GAY A


    JTM is now taking bets on the next two letters being S's. Odds start at 3-1 on, roll up!

    Which in turn is a tad gay... etc
  27. avatar The enfant terrible

    Yeah it's an 'I' today.

    getting really sick of these letters now
  32. avatar Baronation
    And now it's an F.

    Does anybody care anymore?
  33. avatar The enfant terrible
    It was an O yesterday. If you look earlier in the thread it's spelling out what I said it was.
  34. avatar Baronation
    And it's an equals sign today.

    I see what he/she did there.
