Wargaming.net is seen laughing at you from Mother Russia, raising a glass of 5,000 Dollar Aged Vodak in your honor, suckers.

FlashHarry: i believe somebody already beat you to the burma-shave punch, latetothepartymitter.


I believe the follow-up tag indicates that this is an homage to the earlier headline.

I always thought Mission of Burma was overrated anyway.

Sadly, they were probably turned into beer cans long ago.

Subby: Not sure "meter" is really the correct word for this, but you need to work on it nonetheless.

The Spit fire plane - a better shaped wooden prop - but military were slow to adopt - and production eventually stopped - Burma shave

Why bother looking for those pieces of junk? The Spitfire had nothing on the Fairey Fulmar.

And of course the Principal Investigator wants the site to be wrong, and try elsewhere before the project concludes. A report with negative findings don't make for great publishing.

"But I've tried and I believe its better to have tried and failed than not to have tried at all."

Aah, the ole' swan song of failures throughout the ages.

They'd call me Spitfire

Woah woah woah, how come the BBC gets to call it Burma when American media tells us they have to call it Myanmar?
 
2013-01-18 01:19:15 PM
Because they used to own it, and really don't give a fark about a bunch of tinpot generals.

I hate the word Myanmar.

It should be Marandi. Pet peeve.

I love how it highlighted the elliptical wing, whilst showing a later version that no longer used the elliptical wing.

Nah, they were dug up years ago by gramps and his buddy Rolph. Chopped 'em up and sold 'em in parts.
