Now I assume you simply moved.Welcome back, Willy. https://bellgab.com/index.php?topic=9800.0

Quote from: Walks_At_Night on August 28, 2022, 07:47:03 PMThe UK's biggest warship has broken down off the south coast shortly after setting sail on what had been billed as a "landmark mission" to the United States.Imagine SV's embarrassment.
Quote from: SredniVashtar on September 01, 2022, 04:09:12 AMA mere setback. I have been email-bombing the Admiralty for several years about this, regarding my plan to settle accounts with your lousy country once and for all. It's good to see that they are finally heading over there and we can start using those big guns to blast the buggery out of you. This little 'mishap' was probably a diversionary tactic to delude you burger-chewing bastards into a false sense of security.

Quote from: K_Dubb on September 01, 2022, 03:19:39 PMHaha what a dumb boat looks like a floating skate parkI heard that it was on its way over here to refight Chesapeake v. Shannon with the Gerald R. Ford, was already penning a new broadside about the Pride of the Yankee Navy and thumping them and thumping them again and again.

Quote from: pate on September 02, 2022, 05:20:48 AMIndeed.We typically send out rescue missions after the naval engagement (if required) on our side of the pond.Naval traditions vary, I suppose.We have one of those traditions called a "Shakedown Cruise" that I always understood to have been borrowed (or retained, if you like) from y'all.Has the Great Anglish Navy abandoned this practique?You might try blaming NATO and the resultant close association to your French cousines and their naval traditions, Nautical Shore?Just trying to help.Cheers,-p

Quote from: SredniVashtar on September 02, 2022, 05:46:11 AMYou dim bastards obviously can't recognise a classic diversion tactic when you see one. It's a bit like a bird faking an injury to try and divert you from their young. We have this all under control, don't you worry. And you will be destroyed. I will be shortly going undercover to coordinate some of the initial mischief before we get out the big stick on y'all!*Message ends*

Quote from: albrecht on September 02, 2022, 07:53:52 PMIt is a bit nuts but I seem to recall some 'expert' with theories claiming Crisco was an artificiallly, failed lubricant for Naval operations (not for a sordid side) but also some kinda side-deal later for a 'soft-kill' population depop agenda. To use that over more traditional food cooking options, like lard, seut, etc Amazing. One notes in passing why 'rapeseed' was rebranded for US markets.

Quote from: SredniVashtar on September 03, 2022, 05:27:49 AMThere are all sorts of 'theories' going around, like KFC has some sort of agent that makes black people infertile. I usually stay off mentioning Crisco too much because it's K_Dubb's internet password for pretty much everything and the last thing we want is Mr Puniverse having all his bank accounts cleaned out and forced to live in an orange box in an especially insalubrious part of Seattle.
Quote from: Yorkshire pud on September 02, 2022, 08:12:54 PMThe two islands I was curious about, apparently it's a combination of the power output exhaust and a happy accident to separate aircraft management and ship management...but both islands can take over the full roles if either is damaged.
Quote from: K_Dubb on September 03, 2022, 09:39:30 AMHappy accident haha oh yes we know all about the Rile Nivey and love of superstructure, here is HMS Warspite at Jutland with a perfectly reasonable bridgeand here she is later with a gigantic office block installed for WWIIbuilt, no doubt, to house the Captain's chart room, the Admiral's dining salon, the Flag Leftenant's chart room, the first-class buggery parlor, second-class buggery parlor, several classes of messes since messes of the noble ranks cannot be combined with messes of the lower orders as they are an entirely different kind of mess, accommodations for the First Sea Lord and his retinue since by this time in the Empire's collapse you guys had more cocked hats than ships and you might as well have put to sea in them. To say nothing of the captain's gig, the Admiral's jolly-boat, pinnace and barge, and the Chief Steward's barca longa for haggling with the local fishermen over the fresh plaice His Nibs absolutely must have every supper or his tummy goes off.
