My name translates to ‘Crack’ in english, so the first captain I flew with when I was based in Liverpool wanted to confirm with me if I really wanted to be introduced like this?  :2funny:

We stayed on topic for almost 6 pages.  That's a good run for Grogheads!

^  I'd call that a flat-out miracle!  ;D 




This thread took a WEIRD turn.

Eh, par for the course.  If threads around here *don't* take a weird turn, something has gone wrong.  :P

Yeah, it's kinda like watching NASCAR around here.  You know sooner or later somebody's gonna do something to cause a complete multi-car smash-up to occur. Just don't when.  ::)

Usually, the threads that last the longest are the ones that go off-topic. It's fun to go back and see the exact post that took it off topic. Also, it's interesting to see how far the thread wanders off of the original topic. Some just wander off a little and others get to a point where the original topic is unrecognizable.

Some wander off-topic, then some go there Warp 8. Meanwhile, back to Yskonyn's Crack...
