Oh, thank God, I can finally share my geographic 'your mom' joke.

Was at a bar waiting for my drink, and a subset of people next to me were arguing about vodka for some reason. One, evidently giving up, quips, "Your mom's from the Isle of Skye."

"Oh yeah?" I say, "Your mom's from the Isle of Man."

Many lulz were had.

I'd post a picture of Ling from Kung-Pow saying "Take me, man meat!" but I'm mobile Farking right now and that's far more work than I want to put into posting right now.

that's the main bridge where they all catch air?

i recall seeing a broadcast of the race and they wandered off into the woods and found Valentino Rossi watching the race - kinda cool.

not seen the video you speak of. if it's a "snuff flick" of the t.t. - i'll pass.
but if it's a bunch of 'holy shiat!!!' moments.. then i'm intrigued.

yes, i believe so - it's a tiny S-shaped, about 4m wide strip of country road by a tiny bridge.
also - YES, TT3D is absolutely, by far, one of THE best racing documentaries i have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. I watch it about once/twice a month and it never gets old. only fuels my desire to go there. ASAP.

Man some British words just don't sound right. If somebody takes a gun and shoots the place up, do they say, "It was an absolute abattoir in there".

Didn't realize they had a different term for slaughterhouse.

There is a bridge on the Isle of Man, that when you cross it, you have to say hello to the fairies*.

Coincidence?

*Or something like that. 20 years since I visited.

I've heard Americans use the term 'abattoir' before as well, but that's pretty rare. And 'British' term? I think 'abattoir' is French. Maybe even completely French, too, totally un-Anglicized.

Supposedly they decriminalized it in 1992. I have no idea on the general attitude and sense of tolerance, or lack thereof, though.
