Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Too bad now I cannot delete it any more. Press the ... I guess it is meant to be a pencil? ... icon to edit the post ; delete as much of the content as you want, just leaving "I didn't say that". Actually, there is also a delete icon - maybe it disappears when the message gets a reply?

Normal summer weather.
That means: Yes, you did do your swimming proficiency test in the middle of the high street in the normal summer downpour?
Can't cross the road without it. Or a boat.

I misread the rules and did my cycling proficiency test at the bottom of the swimming pool.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_EXPIRED_CERTIFICATE
The certificate is down again. At least, just now it was. Does someone have the remote reboot stick, or shall I launch the thermonuclear reset?

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Let's have 5 examples of sci-fi "terrorist-like" attacks, regardless if they succeeded or not, i.e. defused, or abandoned. You know the drill, one per "universe"/author, books, games, movies, series, or other media. One of the current Star Trek Reboot series starts off with a &q...

Not so cute, but maybe John Cooper Clarke's poem " (I Married A) Monster From Outer Space " might count? I fell in love with an alien being Whose skin was jelly – whose teeth were green She had the big bug eyes and the death-ray glare Feet like water wings – purple hair I was over the moo...

Re: Quote of the week!

I now have visions of a Black Monks Gunship landing on the Old Trafford pitch and causing chaos! During the Krikket World Cup, final over? I'm not sure I'm quite up to speed on these various ball games. The aim is to hide the ball inside one of the players, isn't it? In which case, the solution in ...

The Premier League is to bring in a new owners' charter to stop future attempts to join a breakaway Super League.
Wasn't the Premier League itself a breakaway league?
Can't we just put out a contract on them with the Black Monks?

Re: Spaceship Found in a Car Boot Sale

There's already a Serenity somewhere in the OXPs, Is that in Staer9's "Shipset" OXP? No, it's an old-style OXP which doesn't work through the OXP manager. Box (where the OXP is stored) is playing up. Or maybe Staer9's account / files have gone? From Staer9's profile page : Last active : 2...
