If the links from airports to city centres are good (and my recollection is that Berlin's are) then airports don't need to be downtown. It is a shame though.

And it wasn't the first civilian airport, Croydon opened in 1920.

"I am Spartacus."

And the film I'm looking for isn't Spartacus.

Happy Halloween to all.

And this which kicked off five minutes ago could be the most violent thing you have seen this year; or most other years come to that.

May I ask that we once more support our noble Tongan brothers, this time against those Samoan scum.

If the U-17 Women's World Cup wasn't important then Eurosport wouldn't be showing every game.

Wins for Canada and Germany so far, US up later today. Or possibly tomorrow I can never remember if it is yesterday or tomorrow in Kiwiland.

And you need an assistant for age restricted items. I use the normal checkouts and if they suggest using the automatic ones I ask what discount I get for cutting their staff costs.

Shame we can't get him over here.

I haven't checked any of the Connor threads but it might be interesting to compare them with the knobhead whose name escapes me for the moment who has been banned at least four times and always let back.

Hmm, I seem to remember a long aproach over water for JFK but not scary. Concorde used to land there so it can't be too bad. Barra isn't bad at all, it is huge for the type of aircraft that land there. Don't know what rural airports in the US or Canada are like in winter but Scandewegian ones are ju...

Romania was the name of the crusader state installed in Constantinople in 1204. I think the same name may be used for something else these days though :-) Ah, that Romania; I should have realised but we always call it the Latin Empire. I thought you were referring to one of the other "Black Da...

I'm ok with the Ottomans but can't forgive the Venetians for 1204.

Damn Ataturk, Istanbul is a fine, fine city; but how good would it be if there were still Sultans?
