Slava class gets it in the neck in the end.  A happy ending. 

With an 11 hex range I want to replace all the torpedo tubes on the Oi and Kitikami with these!

I have informed the relevant authorities. Expect a letter from our lawyers




P.S. Has anyone seen the angry comments on the Daily Mail website because Chris Evans got a flight on the Lancaster? Sometimes I despair for the state of this country.

What's baffling you? The Daily Mail is a Brit newspaper that basically seems to hate everything. Slightly xenophobic, possibly racist, definitely anti-Europe, I think the only thing they do like is pre 1950s Britain. They tell the middle-class of Britain what they should be outraged at/scared of this week.

Chris Evans is a DJ on Radio 2 who does the Breakfast Show, as part of the 70th anniversary he spoke to some of the BBMF guys and flew on the Lancaster for his show yesterday. Rather predictably the DM are angry about this and so are a lot of the people on the website. "He only got to fly on the Lanc because he's rich and famous" "he shouldn't be getting paid for flying on the Lanc" and "there are more deserving people than him, a normal person should have done it" seem to be the common themes.

He flew on the Lancaster because the BBC were doing a show about the Dambusters and he does the Breakfast Show.
He was getting paid for it because he's on a salary for doing the Breakfast Show which is why he was flying on the Lanc
There probably are more deserving people than him. And I bet that most of the complainers put themselves in that category. If you let one 'normal' person fly on her then everyone will expect to be able to.


I'm in a bad mood today and I feel terrible, so my patience is thin. Sorry for the rant

Agreed. I thought I had the best job ever at my last stint at the Defense College, when I was getting paid to buy and evaluate commercial computer war games to see if they had potential to be used in the training/education. I think Dixies job beats that, though

Hard to figure why people get so uppity about nothing. I didn't understand the cultural reference and thought there may have been a decent reason. Apparently, nothing doing.

You, sir, just are letting your fame (being highly photographed on the tarmac) go to your head. Next you'll be wearing sunglasses, a beret and pissily refusing us your autograph.

Pettiness and fear are two of the prime character traits required to be a Daily Mail reader.

I celebrated turning 46 yesterday by riding my bike 45 miles today in the Tour de Cure. Raised $560 to help fight diabetes and had a fantastic time.
