Just to clarify matters, I didn't misunderstand NARSES2's use of time notation, it was more that I suspected he may have made a typo and put 'Friday' instead of 'Saturday'.

I get it.
Chris lives within the Croydon vortex where normal temporal flow is distorted by the presence of the large tachyon sump* buried deep under what was British Rail's Southern House.
This plasticises time meaning what we call a week can last anything up to 3 years depending on ones distance from the epicentre.
I used to work in Southern House and can attest that it felt like it took years to get the simplest task done...


*where else would you dump all that waste time generated by 49 years of late running & delays?

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I believe NASA has a team looking at British Rail's legacy now, the idea being that the radical decoupling of distance travelled and time taken that they seemed to achieve might contain within it the seeds of a faster-than-light drive.

BR's Advanced Project Division, the bit I worked for, wasn't called 'Advanced' for nothing you know.  ;D

Remember this, mentioned more than once before on here?

The Charles Frederick mentioned in the last line was in APD too............  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
