30 Episodes?

Made to watch 30 episodes of Dr Who with their head clamped in a vice ?

This sounds more like the Ipcress File or 1984, they probably came out completely bonkers.

Hollerithevo; possibly the pen name of Vladimir Putin, to judge by the sentiments expressed. I really LOLd at the "allow the Yanks...etc.", considering continental Europe was begging the Yanks on at least two occasions to come over and help. And where's the gratitude for that? Pphhht.

It was rumoured that HMS Warrior was to be towed to the South Atlantic as a decoy for the Exocets in 1982, since it's composite hull (whose uneconomic scrapping allowed it to survive so long) is practically impenetrable to modern weapons. Enable a large heat/radar signature and suck up all the Exocets.

I don't understand why Hasham is recieving so many down votes; his/her references to what appear to be irrational double-standards by Adam Yauch are entirely valid.
