    Safie, Safie, easy mate! What a sad picture you paint :( :( . Like being a mercenary in a war?? No way, mate, it's a game, fun, and very, very rewarding if you remember the rules of be nice to each other. Keeps you young, too! :D :D

    I'd like to reach third childhood before enjoying it (what's second childhood like?) I've still to leave first childhood actually!

    Hey and being a merc CAN be fun too (they tell me, he adds hastily)!

    When I was stationed in Berlin, in my youth, I was assigned to lead a unit exchange with a company of the Queen's Own stationed nearby. I decided the Brits had a much better style of garrisoning troops, as both the Officers' and Enlisted's mess were wet. It was only courtesy to drink a toast to the Queen, US President, Prime Minister, President again (it's a dual office in the US system), Foreign Minister, Secretary of State, Defense Minister, Secretary of Defense, etc. One had to be polite. :D

    George, there are no seatbelts for when "SLAMMING" as in pic #1:D & I want the "airbags" removed from the hub of the steering wheel (modern car steering wheels on boats are a No No:D:D:D:D::p

    Thanks for the "fun"...... I think it is one of those "ejector seats" is there a hatch above it?:D

    I would think that the seat is at least equal to a large semi-truck seat, in that it may absorb some of the vertical motion - I can see a hinge-like thing on it.

    Easy-in, would have the seat rotate 90 degrees, but I'm not sure how they do it here.

    These boats look like they can take on heavy seas, I'm not messing with the design, just asking what you fellows see.

    That house may belong to Snowballs (S. Noballs), got them stuck on the wall because he plastered that area mid winter & they stuck there????

    The "warmed device" looks like the army style field "piss'o'phone", one would look rather silly with the meat stuck to the device, waiting for wifey to stop laughing & photographing to thaw out the frozen-ness:D:D:D:D

    Yanks seem to build some strange houses, where are some of your efforts?
