    We've all seen the ones that float around the internet, but I thought I would share this one with you... it makes me titter every time I see it :LOL:

    A couple of years ago I was on holiday in Florida with a couple of mates. One day on the freeway we saw something that didn't seem quite right. I took this photo of a lorry that was driving at 70mph at the time. :eek:

    Come on, that's a call to contribute your own if ever I heard one!

    Got this one of Mousehole Public Toilets in the mid 90's.....

    Sorry the quality is poor - It's a print from a print from a scratched neg. Then it has been photographed itself to be uploaded. Anyway, you get the idea.....

    I'm not doing well on the photos, but whenever I'm in the States I drive through a town with a very big boundary sign saying 'Seaford - Voted 29th Best Small Town in America' - That always tickles me too, for some reason.

    Nah, Do Badgers read the meters out there?

    She is shallow draught I believe, flat bottomed some may say... Not too deep in St Mary's?
    Scillonian Link
    Had eventful round trip in an older model ( Scill' II ) back in '75 .... Loose cargo in the hold, one Range Rover, watched some clever stuff as the crew dodged in and out, to tie the bu##er down, only working as the ship was moving upward, their lookout calling them out just before the bows plunged .. sea sickness prevailed.. best to remain upwind ;)

    Glorious place, the Islands, I shall hopefully return one day... 30 miles of sometimes -- bad sea !

    The boat is a 'must do' for the possible hell of it... Will be a smashing trip, one way or another.

    From Bristol Airport. (originating Manchester I think)
    Fixed wing 'Twotter' .. note the twin part ;) Also note, will never have problem lowering fixed, tricycle undercarriage !

    Iffy about copters.. Seen some unpleasant residuals thanks.

    Need as many engines as pos, preferably with a fair expanse of wing to glide on.

    Depends on the chopper. I wouldn't go on a radial-engine one, but I would with a turbine-powered one.

    I have two chopper-flying friends. One flies Apaches in the army (lucky s*d), and he has vowed never to go in the chopper of the second guy (one of those small radial-engine ones). This is a guy prepared to fly a gunship into battle, perform crazy manoeuvers and risk life and limb, but he won't go in a petrol-powered helicopter. If he won't, I'm not about to!!! :LOL:

    Stub wings are always a bonus too, aeroplane-style landings.
