Innsbruck is a small sleepy airport in summer and copes just fine. In winter the number of flights explodes as it is the major airport for a large part of The German Ski-ing Area. In years past they just said "Fuck it" and didn't care how busy it got or how terrible the baggage handing was...

What passes for journalism at the BBC. (Not devolution)

This page seems to involve the public telling the BBC what "Americanisms" are creeping into UK english. The BBC then publish them without checking anything. Off the top of my head: 1, 6, 34, 40, 42, 48 and 49 are expressions I have heard all my life, generally things I was strongly warned...

Offhand I can't remember the details but there were various treaties which allowed NATO and WarPact Forces to observe each other's manouvers. In theory each had free reign to roam anywhere, in practice they were closely followed and monitored. I used to work with a guy who had been in the BAOR and i...

The Daily Mail

Is a newspaper (and I use the term loosely) that is fixated with a variety of Little Englander topics primarily immigrants and house prices. For light relief they jump on any medical story to show how everyday items and foods either cause or cure (or occassionally cause and cure) cancer. Someone is ...

View from a train window.

My daily commute involves a train journey from Edinburgh to Dunfermline: through the city centre, past Murrayfield, into the countryside, past the airport, over the Bridge, back into the countryside. All in all half a dozen stops then mine. A typical journey involves the usual collective in our carr...

One of the people that turned me on to Americal F'tbawl. Back in the 1970s we might have got highlights of the Superbowl but nothing more. In our local library I found the book "Mad Ducks and Bears" and a couple of others and that was me hooked.
