I remember on a visit to Scotland my brother showed me a roundabout with some weird lane marking which had appeared near Dunblane. The locals quickly christened it 'the SAS Roundabout' - as in 'Who Dares, Wins' :lol:

Re: On Scotsmen ....

An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman went into a pub, and the barmaid said "What is this, some kind of a joke?" :hide:

Re: Dave Maltby site down?

I see on flightsim.com this morning, two files for FSX updating the DM Comets 4 and 4b. While Dave and Rick Piper are mentioned by name, I saw no mention of permission being sought or granted for these modifications. Usually the readme would include that info, and the original developer's readme. Do...

Re: Online Jigsaw Puzzles

Re: He really kept cool

I remember back in the 60s, when payroll hijacks were in fashion, an attempt was made on a shipyard payroll delivery in Newcastle. BBC TV North made the national news with the story, and their reporter told us " A security guard foiled the hijackers by turning the armoured car into a gasworks&q...

Re: Disillusioned with the top layer

Concerned only with advantage, having neither the will nor the ability to tell right from wrong, and representing themselves first, their faction second, their party third and their electorate purely by chance; in a word, psychopaths.

Re: The collection grows a bit more. "into the bargain"

What really gets me is the way the CC sharks will not treat an overseas purchase as one transaction. They break it down to three pieces and charge overseas purchase fees plus currency conversion fees plus authorising bank fees, on the item cost, any sales taxes, and the postage and packing. These da...
