A site,
encountered while doing some internet research, is asking, as confirmation of you being a human rather than a computer, "what aircraft type is largely known as the most famous in world war II ";

now, what would you say?

I'd say steer clear of a website that asks a subjective question to prove you are not a robot. That is ridiculous.

Yes, it does! Maybe we should have all Forum members take a test to prove they are/are not a bot.

You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?

Mind you, you think that is bad. I tried to log in to a website recently to get some OOB info on the French Army in World War I and the spambot filter was really tough:

With specific reference to À la recherche du temps perdu, how does Marcel Proust's world of books and poetry differ from the "real" world? Is he disappointed by the "real" world? Discuss.

Hey, that's an idea. Let's have everyone here ask their spouses or significant others and report back here. I could use a good laugh.


I know this will sound like me just being a disgruntled ex, but believe me its true.

I doubt the woman could even tell you where WWII was fought.

Go ahead and ask me the next question. The one about my mother.

OK - "How many men did your mother 'know' before she had you?"

Actually, I think it'll also do nicely as my new desktop wallpaper. My partner was only complaining the other day about how she's sick of seeing military images when she uses my PC.

Those of you with spouses that are apathetic to your wargaming pastimes will appreciate this response from my wife:

Me: What was the most famous plane of the Second World War?

Her: The B-52?

I was torn between explaining just how very wrong that choice was-at the molecular level-versus being a good husband, nodding and saying 'thank you'. I made the wrong choice. I picked the former.


OMG - my wife is more "ignorant" than yours. She also said B-52, because that was the plane that George H.W. Bush flew !!!
