"Can't remember where I read it, but: "Not one German bomb dropped on Stoke-on-Trent in World War Two. This, apparently, was because a group of high-ranking Luftwaffe officers, grouped around a table and studying aerial reconnaissance photographs of the area, concluded it had already been bombed".

This was in the Guardian's Notes and Queries today.Made me laugh.A colleague of mine at the UAB is from Stoke.Hope I bump into him before class tomorrow.:hilarious:

Damn the word m e l t seems to now be banned,best i find a new fav word.

could always follow the lead of HM forces during the Falklands conflict

When the British soldiers arrived to liberate the islands, they nicknamed the islanders 'Bennies' after Benny, the simple soul in Crossroads. But this caused so much upset that the soldiers were banned from using the term, and instead nicknamed them 'Still' - as in 'Still a Benny'.
