the last couple days have taught me a thing or two...
-Monique wants me dead (and has been training ziggy to kill)
-Neil is a poofy mexican who wears socks in his climbing shoes
-Simon takes pretty good photos!
-It is unlikely that a route Fantini graded 15 in 1972 will be a nice afternoon stroll. 20m of absolute brilliance, amongst 4 pitches of runouts, choss, shrubbery.... should have taken the crampons
-One cannot expect to climb well after being awake for roughly 60 hours and being very hungover. but it is still pretty fun to try!
-issue #5 of CRUX, the first photo annual, is getting me very excited... it is shaping up verrrrry sweet.

...and mousey is good at choosing the shitest routes at a crag. I sat their wondering why we were cllmbing vertical dirt when there was perfectly good 5 star routes just around the corner. At least we got benighted which is always a highlight.

Not mousey's nonsense but nonsense none the less.
"A group of 18 professional and amateur British cricketers are trying to set a world record for holding the world's highest match at the foot of Mount Everest."
Note they are taking 40 spare balls but I assume they will be red ones cause the white ones would go missing every time.

Whole story here:

It doesn't always go their way ...

Here is some old news (myth?), I came across, to cheer you up.

~ Two British traffic patrol officers from North Berwick were involved in an unusual incident while checking for speeding motorists on the A1 Great North Road. One of the officers used a hand-held radar device to check the speed of a vehicle approaching over the crest of a hill, and was surprised when the speed was recorded at over 300 mph. Their radar suddenly stopped working and the officers were not able to reset it.

Just then a deafening roar over the treetops revealed that the radar had in fact latched on to a NATO Tornado fighter jet which was engaged in a low-flying exercise over the Border district, approaching from the North Sea.

Back at police headquarters the chief constable fired off a stiff complaint to the RAF Liaison office.

Back came the reply in true laconic RAF style:

"Thank you for your message, which allows us to complete the file on this incident. You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the Tornado had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked onto, your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it. Furthermore, an air-to-ground missile aboard the fully-armed aircraft had also automatically locked onto your equipment. Fortunately the pilot flying the Tornado recognized the situation for what it was, quickly responded to the missile systems alert status, and was able to override the automated defence system before the missile was launched and your hostile radar installation was destroyed.

Good Day..." ~

Some statistical trivia for you Mousey.

Same for same re time for 1st 800 posts to your thread vs havachatwithhexy ...

Yours 248 days. Hextrolls 116 days.

At about 50 % he'd prolly say your young and still learning to 'lead'; though others may say he is more full of verbal 'nonsense' ...

Heh, heh, uhuh?
