Unless I was having an equally deaf moment when he told me the story, and I don't think I was, then YES.




... I know. Keep in mind, this was the mid-90s. Bono was probably stoned and thought it was an arty thing to do.

And don't forget to mention it to U2 - increase your chances of being hired as setlist manager
A dream model railway will cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even just a small one can go into the thousands for the trains alone.

YOU MUST. This is not optional. At least, seasons 1-6 are not optional. The later ones I can live without. (One of the writers left and it got very stupid.)

There's another bit like that shortly after...

Cat: "I know! We can blast them with the laser cannons!"
Kryten: "Another excellent idea, sir, but for two more tiny drawbacks. We don't have any laser cannons, and we don't have any laser cannons. Now, I realise that is technically only one drawback, but it was such a big one that I thought it was worth mentioning twice."

DAMN. That's because you buy replicas and don't make your own yeah?

The only reason I could afford Warhammer was because I had above-average converting skills, meaning I could make a more expensive (when sold and not made) model from a cheaper model.

Let's hope YouTube can help me out.

Blimey.

He must still be smoking the wacky tabaccy, cos he seems to like snogging Adam and Edge onstage.

Friend of mine in Canberra is into model trains... I must remember to save the URL of the web page he's documenting things on. I'd ask him now but he just went to bed.

Which means I really should too...

Scratch-building model trains, especially the locomotives, is extremely difficult. Unless you have very specialised skills, you're going to have to buy the motor and wheels, and those don't come cheap.

Model railways are also extraordinarily large. In HO scale (1:87), the most common scale, a 4 foot by 8 foot layout is considered small. I would find it far too limiting. When I build a model railway, I will use an entire room. A very large room, like a garage or a basement. And I'll probably be modelling in TTn3/NZ120, which is 1:120.

I'll probably buy models of foreign trains and just do what I can to alter them to look close enough to the Kiwi ones I want.

G'night, Maj.!

I'd say the same to you, Ali, but I'm expecting you to hang around for another thirty minutes at least ...

But no love for Larry? I suppose he doesn't feel emotion. Except when he's listening to his Westlife CDs.

This is the thanks I get for trawling You Tube for you...

This isn't the funniest scene, but it's from the first episode....

I would imagine that Mr Mullen would whack him with a drumstick if he ever tried... Adam and Edge can't defend themselves so much.

Ah, that sounds cool, I'd certainly be interested in having a look.

And wow, it's past 12:30am. At least I don't have uni tomorrow. I'll have to send you an e-mail re: Thursday.
