Lipstick ?

There once was a lad from Poole,
Who had a red ring round his tool,
He went to the clinic,'
The Doctor, a cynic,
Said Wash it, it's lipstick you fool.

Re: Pearl Harbor 78th anniversary

Didn't I once see some Pathe Gazette Newsreel about American bombers being pushed across the border to Canada before Pearl Harbour, 'cos Roosevelt wanted to help fight the war but couldn't be seen to be "delivering" aircraft. RAF Ferrry pilots then took them to England ? Tales of Churchill having so...

New Zealand also has Rules about not driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, maximum speed limits when driving, not strangling young british female visitors whilst indu...

Re: New Terrorist Attack

And whilst you're at it, remember to always carry your own bomb on board when flying. Safest way to travel as there is no recorded incident of there ever being two bombs on board any aircraft.

You just have to persuade the TSA.( or similar.)

Re: A professional pilots view on Erebus accident. He had also done that flight

The fact is that the pilot probably believed he knew where he was and descended based on that erroneous belief. From what I've read " Impact Erebus" by Gordon Vette, and "The Erebus Papers", a 735 page tome of documents, statements and the like from the era, it seems that he was convinced he was in...
