You have to marvel at his ability
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

Omg I've worked it out after seeing the Martian yeti. Yeti/Sasquatch/Bigfoot are all aliens they have a kind of stealth camouflage suit that even when it is malfunctioning or switched off still causes any photographs to come out blurry and hard to prove veracity! If I suddenly stop posting it is because they are also pTerry fans and they have abducted or killed me to keep their secret safe, especially as I've just worked out that they also control several high ranking people including

I don't know any self respecting man that wouldn't want a fridge with pull out shelving. :lol:

I'd invite people over just so I can wait for them to ask for a drink so I can tell them, "It's in the fridge, help yourself" then watch the reaction. :lol:

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I remember one cruise I was working on where there was a high mortality rate amongst the passengers (it was a frequent occurrence for a couple of guests to die as many of the holiday makers were elderly or frail back then). Unfortunately, this time, there were too many bodies for the ship's morgue to hold so they ended up storing the surplus in one of the fridges in the ship's kitchen. Even more unfortunately, they forgot to mention this little detail to the chef who had to be treated for shock after he found out the hard way. :lol:

He's maybe been sworn to secrecy and was really a secret agent using the cover of a croupier, after all he is really good with a camera. ;) ;) :whistle:

I didn't actually work for a shipping line as such but for Casinos Austria, one of the concessionaires. The ship I was talking about was the Oceanos, made famous by sinking a few years later of the coast of Africa and where the captain and crew abandoned ship leaving the passengers and entertainment staff behind. The entertainment staff conducted the rescue operations aboard ship. The full details can be found HERE on the website.
