""..and that's what Sir Edmund Hilary climbed 100 years ago. Doesn't seem so impressive."

Oh, but there's much more below the surface.

Climate change proved to be a hoax after polar ice cap is spotted.

You've all done Very Well, but I was surprised to note that Hoskin's Round Out did not put in an appearance; the opportunities latent in "Fix", "Pin-point" and "Spot Height" were overlooked, and the old L&H: "This is another fine mess you've gotten me into !" went by the board. But what an open goal was missed with "♫...."There's a Hole in my Bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza...♫"

To business,

Honorable Mentions:

Great! Now we're stuck! Did I, or did I not, tell you that water bombing is pointless in the Arctic?

Take it away, Sammy !

Nice one Sammy.

Danny, I think with over 33k responses, I'm happy with the way things are. I've often had a very different opinion to the judge but I think that's all just a part of the charm. Also, I think it would slow down the whole process.

Quot Homines, Tot Sententiae !

No, no, Buster, my idea would apply only to the latest Picture. For example, the troops would only have to choose from 51 submissions for this last one, and then (say) Post "387" for your latest gem.

But then (I've just realised !), This Thread gets 138 "hits" per Post ! I might get a thousand "votes" to have to wade through to establish the winner !

BAD IDEA - Let's forget it !
Thank you, Buster - (will take down the original suggestion).

Danny.

Thank you all for the kind words.

Please append your pleasuring prose appropriately:



Tip #1: "Look Ma, no hands!" is too obvious

Enjoy

Apparently, the Chinese were not the first to have a "manned drone"...

The Chinese were not first with the "armed" drone, either.
