Flint -- I was speaking metaphorically -- it is a bad as the 1860's in London -- we just kill the children slowly with lead instead of quickly with Cholera. Long live john Snow.

Everything in SA goes better with a cup of tea.

As Ed so wonderful post points to the all consuming presence of iced Tea in the South -- terrible stuff, worse than the worst cup of tea stewed for 2 day and then strained through old socks. Everyone around me drinks it.
Of course most of it is Lipton's Never in the course of human history, has one man made so much money from losing.'

I finished the movie, actually it left me feeling upbeat. The boat scene was interesting - the only funny thing in the end was the slow take off speed -- that was rigged, the rest was suitably scary, although one must remember the boats had a hull speed of about 5 knots. Why the heck did they not borrow two unstayed boats, take 2 phone calls and a couple of quid?

I will watch it again -- I beleive it is the 75th anniverary of the SS Politician. Long live CM.
