    Schitzophrenics are people too - just more of them.

    You would think after all the trouble to make a good copy they would get the spelling correct?
    Wanted to write something witty and profound, but couldn’t be bothered.

    Spain* is inundated with 'Chinese shops' where you can buy almost anything, very cheaply. Some of it is OK, for example, a lump hammer for about a quid. Just be careful the head doesn't fly off while using it!

    But some is just crap. I needed a long 10mm tube or bar spanner. I found a lovely all in one chrome vanadium rod with a T handle and a 10m socket about 10 inches long - ideal! So I parted with my hard earned quid and took it home. Later, delving into the depths of my car's engine, used said 'tool' - it twisted like a twisty thing! Absolutely useless!

    * It seems they have a 'trading agreement' with the Government. In our very small town there are about 6 huge Chinese supermarkets!

    Submariners seldom cheat, and NEVER lie!

    Why is it acceptable to cry at a wedding but not to laugh at a funeral?

    Age and treachery will always overcome youth and fitness!

    I remember walking around Quingdao and seeing a variety of 'Starbocks' and 'McDonas' dotted about the place.

    The parent group of the company I used to work for had a massive intellectual property division who's job it was to scour the globe for fake watches and jewellery, they had a museum full of amazing tat, including a fake Ferrari that had been knocked up in Thailand.

    Some of the watches though were pretty much indistinguishable from the real thing and I'm talking 200 grand IWCs, not 6 grand Rolexs.
    One cannot begin to fathom the immensity of the **** I do not give.

    I had a good run there in 2000
    I'm a little crazy, I like to run ultra distances for fun.

    I thought it was a shit hole but we had a mega run there. I got chatted up in what I'm convinced was a honey trap, the bar next to the dockyard just happened to be full of very attractive girls who spoke perfect English.

    I told them the Seadarts were nukes and that we had a secret Harrier stashed in the hangar (on a stumpy 42).

    I also purchased a 3' long ceremonial AK bayonet from a department store.

    It was a hole but it's the runners. You knew most of them on Geordie Gun Boat. We also flew up to Beijing for the Great Wall of China Tour. That was a awesome 48 hours smashed out of our faces.

    Yeah we did that too, but if memory serves we went from Shanghai.

    Anyway, awesome runs, awesome ships.
