Fortuitiously rare occurance

My rear inner-tube decided to give up the ghost on the way home this evening. Fortunately only on Riverside so it was under a mile to home, but still a pain. No evident alien bodies in either the tyre or tube, but userinfoclaroscuro reckoned that the tube was generally in a bad way.

Haven't replaced a tube for about 2 years, since one went on the way into Milton on the way to work (that one was a ½" screw through the tyre and tube), but it wasn't too painful. Pumped userinfoclaroscuro's tyres up too.
