Hi everyone.

My name's Murk, I am new round these parts. Please be gentle.

Well, alright then, don't. It's ok.

Hello Murk, may I call you Murky?! It's so much more informal...

(In case you're not yet aware, I'm the doyen of all the incoherent ramblers that pervade this forum). But now I must sleep. I bid you a good night sir (or madame).

Hello Murk. Only two rules that you need to remember.

1. The moderators are always right.

2. See rule one.

Enjoy and always blame France. ;)

Hi Murk,

We are divided into 2 camps here...

Neocon capitalists and tree-hugging pinkoes.

Which one are you?:)

Hi Murk.

Rule 1. Don't go posting questions on the R&N forum. There is a very nasty chappie named 'Rainboe' who might 'chew' your ass if you post silly questions.

Rule 2 Don't reply to PMs from pilots offering you the chance to sit on their knee. It never works out well and families get involved.:ooh:

Welcome, Murks,

If you can hold your ground or at least come back here after pouting in the corner, you'll do fine here. And don't engage Airship....unless you're into posts that will drive you to drink. Then you'll just end up like him. :p

(xx Airship....how are the kitties, luv?)

Welcome aboard Murk. We'll get on just fine


......except there are technical forums at the front which were meant for professional pilots. They get overrun with rodents who seem to think they are included and completely take it over. If you don't know what you're talking about, best keep out and confine queries to better places. Also, try and remember because you may have a keyboard and computer, you are not automatically a newly qualified aircraft accident investigator tasked with solving every serious aviation incident (like about 200 idiots who frequent the wrong sections). You will not be the one to reach the staggering solution before the real investigators, so please don't try.

Be nice to Draper, he's funny, and completely accurate in all he says.

Don't listen to the others, they were brought up wild by polecats.

Keep out of the technical sections unless you know what you are talking about (and you can produce professional certificates).

If you read the Guardian or are a socialist/Labour voter, go away!

Welcome

Dang, you guys are giving all my secrets away. :(

Pay no attention to Rainboe unless it is about a technical issue, then he is mostly correct. I've seen strong men crawl away whimpering after challenging him, not a pretty sight.


Say Murk, I forgot to ask you, do you like Scotch?

Ooooooh ... Rainboe's gonna get you for that one, Flightster!! :uhoh: Run!!!

Yeah ... look, we can't have that sort of thing around here, we have a reputation to live down to. Notices Rainboe looking over shoulder ... Err, I mean, "We have a reputation to which we have to live down."

Welcome Murk ... and good luck if you do try to sit on Con's lap, he's about eight feet tall so it will be quite a climb. :E

Yes, welcome murk.

When you watch the East Anglian Boy video, please bear in mind that the picture of the in-breed with big ears is actually of a Seth Effrican - so the image portrayed of East Anglia is obviously grossly unfair.

And that Rainboe chappy is actually quite clever. He sits at the front of one of those diamonds in the sky you see leaving a white line behind them.

Murk there is also a polite, erudite and witty group in the Dunnunda environment.
(Or so it is said - the evidence points, sadly, in another direction)

Me; I go to "End the sentence " or "last two letters form new word", or (better sometimes than Jet Blast ) your actual Nostalgia section.

Basically, have a good look around at all the Fora (and Flauna) and settle where you feel comfortable.

And welcome!!:D

Welcome Murk,

Where matters of spelling and grammer are concerned I think most PPRUNERS refer the Guardian Style Guide, and as quoted here, Kingsley Amis.

berks and wankers
Kingsley Amis identified two principal groups in the debate over use of language: "Berks are careless, coarse, crass, gross and of what anybody would agree is a lower social class than one's own; wankers are prissy, fussy, priggish, prim and of what they would probably misrepresent as a higher social class than one's own"

This must be one of the longest-running threads (2 pages and counting...) ever here on JB welcoming a newcomer.

Murky (if I might call you that, I did ask politely and you didn't raise an objection which to me means 'go ahead') must be someone very special.

Does that mean that everyone is extremely bored here? Or has been banned from contributing any further to the Gary Glitter thread (I'm not that disappointed - it appears that it's simply degenerated into the usual JB 'hang the ba$tards by the balls until they croak / toss them into a vat of boiling fat" etc. one-upmanship as has already been regularly displayed here in numerous threads concerning cyclists, for example..?! :p

I wish we could still post poll threads though. I'd like one that went:

Do you want airship here in JB anymore, Yes / No. Give it a week. And I'd go quietly.

In the meantime Murky, fancy a wild wander through some other forums here just to say hello? Great fun on a dreary winter's evening when we had mods with a sense of humour...?! Nah, forget it. Unless you go first...;)

Don't think you can have a noun as a middile name - (Notoriety). It just doesn't role of the tongue: Murk Notoriety Smith

You could have the adjective - (Notorious), that has far more flair: Murk Notorious Smith.

Small point I know but something tells me you are a stickler for detail.

Cron.

Mr. Murks,

Would you mind having a look at the fine Limerick thread here in Jet Blast. I seem to have injured it and am a bit worried as it was my only form of entertainment of late. Please try to revive if you have a spare moment. Cheers Mate. :ok:

Oh Come! Come! Cron! Tush! Tush! I thought better of you.

Let the man be Notoriety at will. Let him dare to depart the stodgy, the Duanes, the Dwaynes, the Duwayns, the Dwains, the Kyles, and other shudder-inducers. Better for him to recall the Parliamentarian Praise-God Barebone and of course his son Hath Christ Not Died for Thee Thou Wouldst be Damned Barebone. A tad flaky, I hear you say, and it is true that young Hath Christ Not Died for Thee Thou Wouldst be Damned rather lacked his old man’s firmness of character. He changed his name to Nicholas Barebone and started London’s first fire insurance company. I fear so. He became an insurance man. All the more reason for us to help young (for so I perceive him) Murk in his resolve.

One regrets, really, that the Barebone family had its links with London, not Glasgow. Had it been otherwise, one revels in Mrs Praise God Barebone leaning over the third-floor window of the tenement and addressing her wee yin at play in the street: "Haw Hath Christ Not Died for Thee Thou Wouldst be Damned! Son! C'moan up! Yur tea's ready!"

That is much worse than a banana



A propos bananas, con, after the war many hard aviators found their way into the aircraft industry, bringing experience in the air, in being shot out of it, and in walking home in hostile climate through hostile populace. The DSO, DFC, and DFM were commonplace. I was privileged to know several who feared, it would be fair to say, no man.

I worked for a conglomerate that had aircraft manufacturing interests. From time to time the Great Ones would arrive from Head Office to Inspect and Instruct. After one such visit the Great Ones departed in their iron bird, but while with us they had seen fit to criticise one former Group Captain, much decorated, in terms the victim thought unjust.

The former Gp Capt A was in my boss’s office warming his guns in his normal suave way when in waltzed boss’s secretary, middle-aged lady, product of the convent school, to announce that Mr X, the Very Greatest of the Great Ones, was on the phone, presented his compliments to Mr A, and would have Mr A come to the phone immediately.

Said former Gp Capt A: “Tell Mr X that Mr A presents his compliments to Mr X, and says that Mr X can go f*** himself with a frozen banana”.

Said lady secretary: “In those words?”

Gp Capt A: “In those words”.

Out she went, the door left open. We heard her lift the telephone and speak: “Mr A presents his compliments to Mr X, and says that Mr X can go f*** himself with a frozen banana”.

Monty Python, really, has nothing to compare in fiction with what life provides in reality.

Twere not just in times past offspring were handicapped by rather silly names.

The Chinese, especially in Hong Kong, frequently choose a "Western" name in addition to their original given names on the basis that it sounds nice. This leads to some bizarre monikers, eg, (and these are all real) Chlorophyll, Error B, Ranky, Carvan, Eulogius, Twainky and my ever favourite, self-descriptive, Miss Vagina Wong
