Hey, as they say in North America; "Shit happens!", ahahhahahahaaa. I think the real reason behind the victory was that enemies ships were really commercial ones, not navy, and also overloaded with port and champaigne to celebrate the victory ahead of time, ahahahaaaa. Common, common I am just kiddin', this was great victory by great admiral ! Please, don't aim your composite bow at me !

One eye, one arm, speechless crew, 22 different nationalities, and still won the battle.

I don't disagree , John, I am pretty familiar with specifics of sailor's psycology... I am just wondering ( and overly concerned ) whether they knew (without spoken a word ) where to shoot in full silence ? Maybe the victory would've been even more glorious if they shoot brandskoogelns in to enemy's ships as opposed to their owns :-( , :-) ?! Don't forget , it's tough to control the command if you have just one eye and buncha sppeachless sailors, ahahahahahhahaaaa. Hey, I am just teasing you, bud !

Eldar did you know that sailors on English warships were trained to fight whole battles without a word being spoken. (Digression over) My personal opinion these 18 were sight seeing time travellers. Which would explain their reluctance to be identified.

I am wondering how they managed to count them, as obviously these mysterious "18" did not know a word of English, Welsh, Irish or Scottish and likely served as ballast on the ships ?!

I am aware of my limitations and have learned to live with them.

The "no" was really short. The explanation was too long.
Dave Beedon26-Apr-2006 08:40
No. (That is the shortest sentence I can make.)
John Cooper10-Mar-2006 16:03
Dave, you, advocating shorter sentences, do my eyes decieve me ?
Dave Beedon26-Feb-2006 20:53
Wouldn't it make more sense to group those nationalities under one name that starts with a "B"? All those names use up so many words; shorter sentences would benefit mankind.
