The legend of Mr Gorsky was introduced to PPRuNe by no other than oneself in the earlier snippets of information thread, which in truth contained more snippets then this one,though it only ran to 500 posts if one recals correctly, and offered a prize for the most uselless snippet.
The winner was about a Mona Lisa made from toast, picked by oneself of course, as it was ones thread after all.
One cannot recal who the winner was which made no great difference as the offer of a prize was just a ruse anyway.

Gainsey - I used to get in there when Andy was running it - remember talking to you about airshows one time.

When I finish this glass of orange, I'll have drunk 1L of fresh orange all day...oh and 50CL of orange flavoured Fanta.

I received 4 joke / funny emails today. They all made me smile one way or another.

I've not bumped into many women though

actually thats probably a good thing, even I'll admit I'm looking rough today. May not shave again tomorrow to perfect the art of looking like a wayward tramp

You know, if I were a virus or a germ, and I wanted to be left in peace to reproduce infect other bods and such I would produce some syptoms that made the host feel feckin great.

"How are you today"?
"I have a real bad dose of Splurge, I feel absolutely marvelous, thank you"


Silly feckers, If I can think of this ploy why cant they?

Singaporegirl, how unenterprising and unimaginative those chaps are: here one goes straight for the "pneumonia".

Ah, but you're a lawyer, Mr Davaar - well used to milking something for everything it's worth (and more).

That ship is definatly not a Liberty ship, looks like a fifties built Fleet auxilary, much like our own OLNA, or the Oh Lord Never Again as she was known among Tynside seafarers,
She is a fine looking vessel with some character, not like these souless tin box container fecking boats they churn out now, one will not grace them with the title of ship.
Dunno why they didn't send her to Greece those buggas would get another forty years out of her.

Send Clowns - it is your God given right to eat Beaver on a Friday!
The Capybara has also made its home in the Norfolk Broads in recent years.
Reports of sightings still filter in from time to time even after the initial
"Oh my god they are destroying the habitat!" scare in the early 80's.
They haven't cleared them off yet.

One has discussed the prospect of new charters for "Canopus" and "Caloosahatchee" with one's Greek agent, Stavros Niarchosis but like most shipping buggas - he drives a hard bargain. Payment would be in Euro's - so matters of principal preclude further trade.

Maybe a few geese could be displaced from small lake in Newcastle and a they could be found a more permanent mooring.

Foreign Johnnies a tad unreliable in my opinion.

I think this thread is turning into more of a chatroom than a collection of RRBATPSOI. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing.

Over to the thread starter for his view on this observation.....

More like the back of the door in a public toilet TC, one sits and pencils ones thought thereon.
One recals the one that seemed to grace all of these establishments,

"If you are reading this you are sitting at a angle of 45 degrees"

One is reliably informed that that has been found chiseled in latin on the walls of the roman ablutions at Housteads on the Roman Wall,just think somebody somewhere sometime thought that up.

This is more of a question in search of a RRBATPSOI

Why are rulers 30cm?











They look taller on TV

One perceives RRBATPSOI more as a languid café rather than a lavatory door. An atmosphere of relaxed good humour, aperitifs and jewels of information crossing a firmament of laughter. The lavatory door conjures up more sinister metaphors, some deeply embedded in olfactory distress.

One shudders at the thought of needing an inclinometer - to muse.

I am very tired...someone kept me on the phone and left me with thoughts that refused to allow sleep. So if I go quiet later on...it's because I'm

On the drive in this morning I spotted 2 Eddie Stobart lorries. The first was named 'Esther', the second was 'Josephine-Helen'. I was surprised that Josephines cab was Blue, not the usual racing green that Eddie's trucks are usually painted up in.

Crikey Biggles, some memory you have! That was at least four years ago, as I've not been in there since at least then.

Gales tonight apparently, more bloody leaves to pick up.

There are (is..?) close to seven lines of page numbers at bottom of page. Wouldn't it be germane and economical for space to zip them into lots of ten?
. . . memo to Mod Squad. . . for next collective meeting. . .

'Café-style' forum does lend a certain dapper clannishness to the quips and pontifacting, although one's experiences in youth/travel hostels brings to mind the laissez-faire-esque atmosphere which dominated the travellers' transient lifestyle. And one's approach to the fleeting and intangible social contacts.

There's a certain cyber parlellism in the discontinuity, the fractured themes, the macro-plots, the sub-plots, the quasi-contignation, the weft and warp of discordant and concordant intellects contrasting distinct cultures, that insinuate theyselves into the overall colour and flux which exemplifies the dynamism generated in any multi-faceted social clique.

But I can't seem to find the words.

singaporegirl,

FYI, one uses both the OED and the Nuttall's ( not a pawn shop) "Standard Dictionary of The English Language", ( as edited and revised by Lawrence H. Dawson. ... with an article on pronunciation of foreign words - under the direction of - Daniel Jones M.A. D. Phil. ). . .. 1st edition 1863, later reprints up to 1956.
By-the-by, Latin genus is 'Hydrochoerus capibara'.

One is always amazed to learn new things.

nurse? I have a headache. ..
