It was once thought that if an infinite number of monkeys were given an infinite number of typewriters they would eventually come up with the complete works of Shakespeare. Thanks to the invention of Wikipedia, we now know that this is not the case.
Now here's a funny thing. I posted a comment on the Daily Mail website, pointing out that the pic of the Germans was a fake. The next day it had disappeared. So I posted it again. It disappeared again. However, now the picture itself has gone. Who would have thought the Daily Mail would behave like that? There is this, from the story about Harry P:

Of course, after five years in East Anglia I quite took a liking to the natives (except that one lorry driver who spat out his window at me when he saw I was wearing US camo driving home one day after work!) . Not too mention profound respect for those who serve(d) their country. You hate to see national treasures go. I remember the interview of him shortly before he passed. I'm not sure if I was shocked at the fact that any were still alive (before he passed) or the fact that they were all gone afterwards. Humble chap he was.
Anyways, I figured the majority knew it was a few years old, but since I save pdf's of noteworthy news items I figured it was a good opportunity to put one of my files to use.
Come on, I know at least a few of you saved the pdf .
