Hmm, you seem to be the anomaly then, since you're the only one with a possessive in your name... what's up with that?

There is no lingerie in space...

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming... Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

The next time I have a hellish time in an airport I shall have to be careful what I say (especially on Twitter) :

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/2010/01/18/2010-01-18_man_get_arrested_after_making_bomb_jokes_on_twitter.html

While it's not a good idea to shout "fire" in a public place the guy was clearly joking and venting his anger, to his friends on a public interweb forum.

I wonder what would happen if a comedian on a satirical television or radio show said the exact same words?

"Chamber’s Twitter post was removed, and his laptop, home computer and cell phone were taken away. He was also banned from Robin Hood Airport for life and suspended from his job indefinitely."

Damn, I wonder why they haven't castrated him also, sheesh! Poor guy.

Wait, there's a Robin Hood Airport?  Isn't that the bigger story, at least for us Yanks?

Yeah it made me do a double take too.

An airport named after a legendary proto-communist terrorist, who'd have thunk it?

Come to think of it Baader-Meinhof Airport sounds more convincing.

I could kind of understand it if it was the airport for Nottingham but it's Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield?????

What has Robin Hood got to do with Doncaster or Sheffield which are two separate places anyway?

And to make it even wierder it not in Doncaster or Sheffield it's in Finningley.

What's Finningley got to do with Robin Hood?

It's a bit like having a Song Jiang Airport Bridgeport Hartford and building it in Boise.

Congress is apparently passing/passed/trying to pass a law to prevent loud commercials.  I think it's silly the federal gov't needs to be involved with commerical volume... but if it makes it go away...

IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!

"[George Lucas] rebooted the franchise in 1997 without telling anyone." -skyjedi2005

"Yeah, well, George says a lot of things..." a young 1997 xhonzi on RASSM

"They're my movies." -George Lucas. 19 people won oscars for their work on Star Wars (1977) and George Lucas wasn't one of them.

Rewrite the Prequels!

I've heard that too. Doesn't seem to have worked. They started making TVs that made all the volume one level too. Dunno how effective they were.

drama with funny moments.  It stars an actor by the name of Leo McKern.   He's very good.

I'm always open to seeing more British television. Maybe I'll check it out sometime. Another one I'd like to see more of is Jeeves and Wooster. (and maybe A Bit of Fry & Laurie, too) I've seen a few episodes and really liked it. The books would be good too, of course.
