There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

With those kinds of population numbers and tiny towns what else is there to do besides have sex?

I find it hard to imagine a town with lower population than the building complex where I work.

LOL, the Board censored your link Jayhawk.

Bones liked it there a lot, there's a picture around of him. And they now make a lager called "Hell". They might want to twin with the town mentioned in the initial link...

LOL. A link to Wikipedia, even. biggrin

Apparently, the board software is a cultural chauvinist, disrespecting a perfectly normal name for a peacefull village. smile

Maybe (hopefully) Bones posts that picture.


LOL, Google Maps doesn't work, either. biggrin

Geez. Who knew that an old Saxon word could be both so funny and controversial? wink

Ice Cold in Alex or Eating in ...
On the way to my house we pass a sign to a place called Cut Hill, while in English it if perfectly fine, in Flemish it has a whole other meaning with cut = a four letter word for the female genital area. When driving past it my youngest daughter burst out laughing and said "Look they even know how boring it is here"

She has never been enamoured with the UK, and she can be very blunt about it too smile
