Friends of ours had a baby in late December 1999, the part of the country they live in is famous for witty nicknames so they tried to play it safe by calling the baby Enda.
The first visitor that called to the hospital  said to baby "Hello, end da millennium" :) :)

If I was guessing (which I do a lot with various degrees of success :-X ) I would suspect that there is a bloody great stake driven in at the tow-bar end possibly with a tow ball on top to hitch to. It would make a hell of a hover mower :P

So why dont the laws of physics apply? Monster engine with "substantial revs and blade angle" = SO little thrust that a couple of chocks suffice, including safety factor?! The blades look correct and even though perhaps chopped down, they should propel that vertically, never mind two chock blocks at 45degs. I watched a Merlin doing the same and was equally baffled.  ::)

Archaeology jokes ? Time to dig out this old one :)


Scottish scientists at a local ten meter deep archeological dig, found traces of copper wire that dates back over one hundred years. They concluded that their ancestors already had a telephone network, more than 100 years before Alexander Graham Bell supposedly invented the phone! Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, English scientists dug down to a depth of twenty meters, and shortly thereafter, newspaper headlines read, “English archaeologists locate traces of two hundred year old copper wire”. The Brits concluded that their ancestors had an advanced high-tech communications network, at least one hundred years earlier than the Scots.
Then, one week later, ‘The Kerryman’, an Irish version of The Northern Star, reported the following, “After digging thirty meters into a peat bog near Tralee,  Paddy Ryan, a self-taught local archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing”. Irish scientists have therefore concluded that Ireland had already gone wireless, well over 300 years ago.
