Manchester has a history of attacks attributed to Irish Republicans, including the Manchester Martyrs of 1867, arson in 1920, a series of explosions in 1939, and two bombs in 1992. On Saturday 15 June 1996, the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) carried out the 1996 Manchester bombing, the detonation of a large bomb next to a department store in the city centre. The largest to be detonated on British soil, the bomb injured over 200 people, heavily damaged nearby buildings, and broke windows half a mile away. The cost of the immediate damage was initially estimated at £50 million, but this was quickly revised upwards.[45] The final insurance payout was over £400 million; many affected businesses never recovered from the loss of trade.[46]

Spurred by the investment after the 1996 bomb, and aided by the XVII Commonwealth Games, Manchester's city centre has undergone extensive regeneration.[44] New and renovated complexes such as The Printworks and The Triangle have become popular shopping and entertainment destinations. The Manchester Arndale is the UK's largest city centre shopping mall.[47]

Large sections of the city dating from the 1960s have been either demolished and re-developed or modernised with the use of glass and steel. Old mills have been converted into modern apartments, Hulme has undergone extensive regeneration programmes, and million-pound lofthouse apartments have since been developed. The 169-metre tall, 47-storey Beetham Tower, completed in 2006, is the tallest building in the UK outside London and when finished was the highest residential accommodation in Europe.[48] In January 2007, the independent Casino Advisory Panel awarded Manchester a licence to build the only supercasino in the UK,[49] however plans were officially abandoned in February 2008.[50]

Since around the turn of the 21st century, Manchester has been regarded by sections of the international press,[51] British public,[52] and government ministers[53] as being the second city of the United Kingdom.[54] The BBC reports that redevelopment of recent years has heightened claims that Manchester is the second city of the UK.[55] Manchester and Birmingham have traditionally been considered for this unofficial title.[55]

It's not funny unless one word is rebelliously un-capitalized

this is kind of irrelevant, but isn't it weird how "rang" became a word? Before the telephone, if you would have asked the question, "you rang?" to someone, they'd think you were weird as **** , and now it's an official word in the English language. It kind of puts in perspective how easily a language can change.
i think i should be a linguist

tl;dr Not related at all, enjoy the rest of your day.
