I'm certain that it was the grilled onions...they always attract 8 yr old zombies.  Luckily he must have fed recently as he apparently did not try to bite you.  Or perhaps he was simply awestuck to near speechlessness by seeing his doctor actually consuming something.  Weirdness....

I recognize those boys. British 2nd, US 32nd ID, King's African Rifles (- Idi), sorghum havesters, Humbers, Wolverines. Those are the boys from Port Hedrand!


Amazing to me the LYB's are still able to fight after sustaining at least a month of daily 400-600 casulaties/disruptions by air. Even worse, there is a mortar platoon of some unit cutting off their suppries that might trickle in from Broome

Manado (Mah...nah...doh or Mah..nay..doh): Something goes wrong from the start. Washington does not arrive at night (possibly some idiot has left the "Remain on Station" switch on..investigation pending).

When the sun comes up the 5 flyable Corsairs from Ternate arrive overhead..along with a couple of P-39's who's pilots had too many Wheaties for breakfast.

Then the B-24's from Saumlaki, 25 sorties in two packets. Moderate efficacy. All the bombers at Manado are gone..which is sort of the point..and to protect the transports due over Sidate in a fe hours.

[:D] Given the statement in parenthesis, the pronunciation of the place name must put the emphasis on the last syllable - i.e. Mah-nah- DOH! - always followed by a headslap for punctuation.

Apparently

The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye gave the film five out of five, calling the film "a fantastic combination of 007 meets Bourne meets Spooks meets Home Alone".

Home Alone?

My favourite railway station in the world. It has always brought me home.

In the Harry Plopper films they called it Kings Cross, which is a dump.

Well, you can go into St. Pancras and walk inside to Kings Cross -- close enough for moviemakers! FWIW, I agree that St. Pancras is at least one of the finest in the world (definitely best in the UK, but I haven't seen much of the rest of the world, yet).

If it is the terminus for the Eurostar from Gare du Nord, I've been there.

There was perfectly harmless looking fellow with no luggage going down the hall with me and my kids. He was surrounded immediately by 3 uniformed officers. Seemed kind of unsporting to me. He could best be described as a 4th rotor, B-37, 3rd from bottom.

Beautiful indeed. Nice blend of Victorian and sleek modern sights that somehow compliment each other. Amazing what you can accomplish with a little $800 Million reno.

This AAR is instructive in the ways of man and the game.

Allow me to return the favor and suggest a learning tool for your medical staff: STD cakes. Plus you get to eat them afterwards! I'm getting hungry already.

Cap Mandrake -> RE: Robusto Havana (10/16/2012 3:35:58 PM)

I may have told this story already...but...what the Hell.

At Harbor General in Torrance (an LA County Hospital that was at least a step or two above Killer King) there was an infection control nurse by the name of Chancre.[:)]

Technically, I never met her, but she was paged overhead a thousand times...."Nurse Chancre to the STD clinic please". It may have been a gag, but it lasted for 3 years, which would make it an epic effort. I was in the camp which believed she really existed and was fantastically attractive, the mere sight of her causing insatiable sexual desire in the victim, leading almost unalterably to a tragic outcome, like a 20th Century Siren. One resident offered to lash himself to a support beam and page her to the cafeteria. Tragically she never showed and he was mistaken for an escaped psych patient.
