so they would use song titles as their answers to interview questions? that's pretty cool, being able to come up with that stuff off the top of their head, like whose line is it anyway

The American version is poor next to the British program.

I saw a section of a program about the England football (or soccer) team fitting as many song titles as they could into their interviews during the '98 world cup


Interesting, football players are rarely regarded as being the brightest crayons in the box and far from intellectual beacons of the countries they represent lol

They didn't use just song titles, but the challenge was to get as many titles in as they could:

When asked about training facilities: "It's hardly Club Tropicana"
When prompted to try and glean team news: "You won't be getting any Careless Whispers from me."
After beating Columbia: "We're not exactly dancing on the ceiling."
When asked if there was a wager for the team to get song titles into interviews: "It's not true, it's just your imagination, Ray." (Paraphrase of "Just My Imagination")

@JSR: Well, football players don't have to be total geniuses - they just need to be quick on their feet.

I could make some comments about GW Bush not being the sharpest knife in the drawer, and as leader of the "most powerful nation on earth" that's not a good thing:
- "Rarely is the question asked: Ar...Is our children learning?"
- "I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully."
- "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."
- Dead Ringers sketch

Yea, that's definitely going to get you at least a tazer.

yeah my new gun that i'm making is a 1" same basic design and i tried it with no hose and with a hose about the same length and there isn't really an appreciable difference that I can see it is noticeable but i like it with the hose cause I can put that valve right where i want it and it makes it feel more like a trigger instead of hanging offf the gun all goofy like

that little bit on't make much of a difference, and as I've said before, if you're happy with 95% performance from a comfortable gun as opposed to 100% with an awkward gun then well and good.

So I just built a new barrel for this gun, it's a 2.5" Tennis Ball Barrel, and i'm waiting for the epoxy to set at the moment but it goes down to 1.5" threads and i'm not giving any of the inside info away on how that sucker is put together cause it was a huge pain in the ass.
