$11 an issue only if you get a cashier who is smart enough to figure out that the 3.95 next to the barcode is in Euros and go looking for the price in dollars...

Ha! I missed that the first time 'round. Re-watched it, and Jezza's comments make a lot more sense now. Sad.... After having burned down TG's sets two years ago, they've now been reduced to writing sarcastic letters. I wonder if there will be a reaction when FG comes back on?


Amusingly, life once again imitates art:

You'd be surprised at how well electrical systems hold up in total submergence. Hydrolock, maybe. Hard to tell from the editing, but I don't think the hood was every totally submerged, save for that initial washover when they first exited the landing craft. Depending on the location of the inlet to the airbox, I can see it working. Traction might be an issue...

Still, it's TV. If Top Gear did somehow fudge the landing, would it make the video any less fun?

All before I got to watch it darnit.
It's back up.


All in all, one of the best episodes in a long, long time. Utterly Epic.

Nobody really has a problem with somebody who has been a lurking member for an extended period of time bringing up their post count to post in the classifieds... but bringing up a 4week old thread (or several) to do so is pretty lame. I'm sure you could have managed to find 10 useful things to say in posts that are at least on the first page of a forum. It's not so much about what you did, it's how you did it... bad karma.

Pretty sure that was directed to a project rally guy. Looks like the post was removed.
