From Gold to Golders Green - it's only logical

You may remember that a few months ago I reported on a competition being run by the Royal Society of Chemistry for the best science-based solution to the problematic situation in which Michael Caine and his chums find themselves at the end of the film The Italian Job.

Well, now they've found a winner, and I must say his solution is rather neat.

The runner-up came up with a solution best described as "Don't knock it, it works (probably)". Must be an engineer. Or possibly an arsonist.

Thinking of heavy weights being counterbalanced by people leads inevitably to thoughts of Gerard Hoffnung. Or if it doesn't, you really should listen to this.
