We have Tophatter, Tophatterliberal and now Tophat.

It will be real confusing as to which Top hat one is to doff his hat to! :tongue:

I am waiting for the day when there will be a Tomcat or a Topgun who will strike all in a high lo lo or a high lo high attack profile(like the aircrafts) and blow all out!

All the same, it appears that Tophatter is a great role model since right after his arrival at the WAB with his Tophat, we are being invaded by the Top tops, who are spinning in and spinning out, in a self exit or an assisted exit mode!

The only colonels that would have carried Brig.Ray sir's attache must have been the ones looking for a nice ACR (annual confidential report) from him, but I am sure they must had to prove their professional ability more than their dexterity at opening his staff car doors are carrying his attache.

However, the attache carrier is generally carried by a "Other Ranks" (soldier) from the Bde HQ or some one from his protective detail (if in an operational area).

...they just blew away everything. The local police department is overwhelmed. They're dead...all dead. At least those that haven't been infected with the C-Virus (Cheetobulus Infernus).

Right now, some freedom fighters have gathered in the heights above town. We've been shelling the town for some hours, trying to keep the zombies at the base of the ridge. But we're running out of ammo.

I just don't know how long we can keep this up.

Wait...oh sh*t...they're coming up the hill. [talks to comrade] C'mon man...let's go...go...go... [panting up the hill]

Cheetos discovery puts scientists on alert

18.01.2006

Pest control people in Masterton are playing a waiting game to see if the region is about to be invaded by the dreaded American Cheetos – ranked in snack food circles as one of the 100 worst invaders in the world. They have the potential to cause an ecological, social and economic disaster.
A high alert and intense watching brief has been issued around the country by organisations such as Forest and Bird, MAF's biosecurity division and individual Cheetos experts.

The closest confirmed existence of the Cheetos is at Petone, at Karori in Wellington and at Waikanae.

Originating in America, the Cheetos were first found in Auckland in 1990 and colonies have now been found as far south as Christchurch.





There have been no sign of them entering Wairarapa until yesterday when two Cheetos were handed in, not immediately recognised by the biosecurity team here and which had then running for their guns. They do not want to say where in Wairarapa they were found until it has been confirmed if they are the American species.
James Lambie, senior biosecurity officer, says they are certainly not the common Cheetos. They have been sent to Stephen Hartley at Victoria University's school of biological sciences for identification.

Dr Hartley has dedicated the past few years to the Cheetos and their potential disastrous affects on other snack foods and vertebrates, as well as the ecological and economic consequences.

The voracious little immigrant is slugged second to the world's worst Cheetos invader, the Red Fire Cheetos, not yet in New Zealand. It has been ranked by New Zealand experts as being as big a threat as Shania Twain and Celine Dion.

Dr Cas Vanerwoude, an internationally recognised Cheetos scientist (Cheetocologist), heads an Auckland company, Anti-Cheetos. He says the American Cheeto is a serious household and urban threat and could have a significant impact on the agricultural industry and natural environment.

The Cheetos nest in massive numbers and forage in a column five or six Cheetos wide. They establish large foraging trails into houses seeking food and water.

He has seen them devour humans to the bone in minutes.

Parihaka,

There’s a lull in the fighting, I can write at length.

I’ve got some bad news for you. We tipped our mortar shells with the W-Sauce Ordinance (WSO). It was successful in pushing the zombies out of town. However, it appears the zombies were only a precursor to the true machinations of Project Zed.

About three hours ago, Resistance Special Operations Team 5 (RSOT 5) raided an old quarry several miles to the north. They had noticed that the zombies were swarming around the place in a strange way. Upon inspection, it was clear that the quarry had tunnels deep under the surrounding hills. RSOT 5 infiltrated the base and recovered important documents detailing Project Zed.

In addition to recovering documents, RSOT 5 encountered human resistance. Guards in full body armor, and automatic weapons held the facility. As you will see, we were wrong to think we were only up against zombies. It appears there are deeper forces at play here.

RSOT 5 prepared the following summary. It appears our friend ‘TopHatter’ has been very busy. I warn you, what you are about the read is very disturbing.

I - The History of Project Zed as Project 2501

Project Zed originated within the United States Department of Defense. It was known at that point only as Project 2501. This Project apparently came together under the auspices of the most secretive biochemical warfare programs of the DoD. We are not sure, but 2501 may have been initiated as early as 1991.

It appears that 2501 was conceived as the new edge in biochemical warfare. If the estimate of the date (1991) is right, then the weapon may have been engineered as an asset against the Soviet Union. However, the concomitant fall of the USSR ruled this out.

With the emergence of a uni-polar world in 1991, Project 2501 was reassigned to another secret office with the DoD. We are unsure, but it appears that this place was located in southern Florida. It was identified only as Lab 83. There, the DoD’s top epidemiologists and biochemical engineers worked to perfect 2501. We do not know the intent of the product. It could have been for use against nation-states hostile to the U.S. or it could have been intended for some other strategic purpose.

In any case, 2501 eventually passed out of DoD control. In 1995, a CIA agent leaked the operation. Although it never surfaced in the papers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) pressured Congress to close down the operation. A secret hearing in the Senate closed down Project 2501 and Lab 83.

However, certain parts of the government were unwilling to let 2501 be shut down. On October 5th, 1995, as Lab 83 was being decommissioned by CDC and FBI officials, a group of paramilitaries stormed the Lab. They were able to overpower the FBI agents at the Lab within ten minutes. The CDC personnel were chased off the premises, and the paramilitary group escaped into the southern Florida bog.

The American government has since denied any involvement in the incident.

The CIA and FBI tracked the paramilitary group. Apparently, they were Zeta Epsilon Delta Force (ZED). They were formerly used by the Drug Enforcement Agency and the FBI to do dirty work in Colombia. Somehow, the DEA let the ZED force out of their sight for several months. It is not known if why ZED knew where Lab 83 was, or why they specifically attacked the location of 2501. It is very possible that an insider in the U.S. government used ZED to try to take control of Project 2501.

II - The Virus

Project 2501, renamed Project Zed after 6 October 1995, was essentially an extremely infectious and injurious virus. Its original scientific name was Filoviridae Intensivirus. It is extremely unconventional and was engineered completely within a lab. The epidemiologists of Project 2501 took existing viruses and bred them together to create one of the most lethal weapons on Earth.

The Intensivirus works by attacking first the central nervous system. It invades the pre-frontal cortex and alters consciousness, inducing the ‘zombie-like’ behavior that we’ve noticed here in the battle zone. Meanwhile, autolysis speeds up, creating a condition of continuous, but non-lethal, skin decay. The cell spreads from the CNS down into the muscle fibers. Paradoxically, the Intensivirus briefly adds to muscle strength as the muscular fibers attempt to grow more to counteract the autolysis of surrounding tissues.
This gives the victims their bizarre, zombie strength.

The Intensivirus continues to wreak havoc throughout the human body. As the digestive system fails, victims become pathologically hungry and thirsty, causing them to rove like madmen in search of nutrients. Coupled with their reduced mental state, and briefly powerful limbs, the victims of Intensivirus incredibly dangerous.

Victims will die naturally after 23-27 days. The virus is simply too destructive to last very long. The DoD designed it for maximum decimation ability (about 95 % fatality we’ve seen), so fortunately, it doesn’t last that long. Unfortunately, the disease is equally infectious, spreading throughout a dense population in mere hours.

III - The Birth of Project Zed

The U.S. government reacted with utmost alarm to the disaster. On 6 October 1995, a day after the abduction of 2501, the CDC called it the greatest epidemiological disaster of the 20th century. After what we’ve seen here, I have to agree with them.
ZED disappeared from CIA and FBI tracking in 1999. The last reported incident involving Project Zed, or the ZED force itself, involved the apprehension of several ZED soldiers at Plano, Texas. Apparently they had been casing the Cheetos division of Frito-Lay for some months. These soldiers, identified only as BaseballHatter and CowboyHatter, are currently held in a secret, undisclosed location. They have not revealed anything except the identity of their leader, who they only refer to as the ‘Top H.’

It is quite possible, in fact almost certain, that this ‘Top H’ refers to our TopHatter. This link would finally reveal the extreme threat that TopHatter poses. There should be no doubt now that TopHatter plans to carry out the bizarre and profane goals of the ZED.

For six years, ZED laid silent. Officials in the U.S. government were worried about their lost Project, but there was little they could do to apprehend Project Zed. The CDC was pleased that the Intensivirus did not surface on the world market after the terrorist attacks of 9/11. It seems that ZED was not interested in the black market possibilities of the virus. Nonetheless, the intelligence agencies of America were aware that Project Zed was waiting in the wings.

IV - The Cheeto Plot and the Reemergence of Project Zed

In late 2005, ZED activity picked up again. Plano, Texas was again the focus of their activity. On December 2nd, 2005, eight ZED operatives under the leaders FedoraHatter and SombreroHatter, broke into the Frito-Lay Cheeto division. According to security camera records, the ZED spent several hours within the dormant facility, stealing records and equipment, including several Frito-Lay employee outfits.

Other ZED operatives, or signs of their tampering, were seen at Cheeto plants around the country. Convenience store reported strange activity late at night, and many employees saw shadowy figures

This was the sum of ZED activity until the most recent activity.

At 08:00 EST, January 18th, 2006, the plot was evident. In Titusville, NJ, a Cheetos truck overturned at the Route 29 intersection. Rescuers noticed that the driver had a sickly skin condition, and he was barely conscious. The local EMT brought the man to the local firehouse for immediate care.

Cheetos are the spread vector for the disease.

Within hours, the EMT staff and the entire firefighter squad was infected with the Intensivirus, now renamed the Cheetorae Intensivirus II.

By 15:00, almost the entire town of Titusville has been consumed in a virus-induced zombie wave.

Hmmm, let's not be so hasty here, a quality Scotch stockpile is not to be sneezed at, and a 4 year old girl in full tanty is a weapon anyone in their right mind would respect. Perhaps Sir, we might come to an understanding. Double agent status is a time honoured tradition...... :) :redface:

I can't believe you! You have betrayed the resistance...

...our base here is being overrun. I can't hold out. The C-Virus will spread, and Project Zed will run wild.

We have to pull out. We're relocating operations to sector 6.

The only whisky allowed to call itself "The Glenlivet" is historically the most famous Speyside malt. The appelation "The Glenlivet" is restricted even further in that it appears on only the "official" bottlings from the owning company of the distillery, Seagram. These are branded as The Glenlivet with the legend "Distilled by George & J.G. Smith" in small type at the bottom of the label, referring to the company set up by a father and son that originally founded the distillery.

The independant bottlers Gordon and MacPhail have made something of a speciality of older and vintage-dated examples, in a variety of alcoholic strengths, from the same distillery and these are identified as George & J.G. Smith's Glenlivet Whisky. This range changes according to availability.

The glen of the Livet is also the home of two other malt distilleries, the unconnected Tamnavulin and Braes of Glenlivet, which is owned by Seagram. In the adjoining Avon valley the Tomintoul distillery is also generally regarded as belonging ot the Livet district . It is, indeed in the parish of Glenlivet. All of these distilleries use the sub-title Glenlivet on their labels as an appellation of district. So, stretching a point do about a dozen from other parts of Speyside. This practice, now in decline dates from the glen's pioneering position in commercial whisky production. Merchants in the cities wanted whisky "from Glenlivet" because that was the first specific producing district that they knew by name.

The glen of the Livet has clean spring water that makes especially delicate whiskies. Among the distilling districts it is the one most deeply set into the mountains. Its water rises from granite and frequently flows underground for many miles. The mountain setting also provides for the weather that whisky-distillers like. When distilling is in progress the condensers work most effectively if they are cooled by very cold water, and in a climate to match.

There was much illicit production in the days when commercial distilling was banned and is a significant reason for the renown of the glen. There are said to have been a couple of hundred illicit stills in the wild, mountain country around the Livet in the late 1700s and early 1800s. The district was also a haven for whisky-smugglers on their way over the mountains to the bigger cities and ports, in the Midlands and south of Scotland.

At that time, partly because of grain shortages but also for reasons of political vindictiveness the Highlanders were permitted to distill only on a domestic scale. The modern distilling industry began after the Duke of Gordon proposed more accomodating legislation. One of his tenants Geoge Gow or Smith, already an established illegal distiller was the first to apply for a new licence in 1824. It has over the years been thought that the family had supported Bonnie Prince Charlie but recent research suggests that this was not the case. George Smith founded the distillery that became The Glenlivet. His son John Gordon Smith assisted and succeeded him.

After distilling on two other sites nearby, the Smiths moved in 1858 to the present location. In 1880 the exclusive designation "The Glenlivet" was granted in a test case to distinguish it from the 18 or so other distilleries which at one time or another appended the name to their own. The company remained independant until 1935, merged with Glen Grant in 1952 and was acquired by Seagram in 1977.

Not far from the hamlet of Glenlivet, the distillery stands at a point where the grassy valley is already beginning to steepen toward the mountains. Some original buildings remain and the offices occupy a handsome 1920s house

Actually, I'm seeing him trying to avoid my #1 Daughter from throwing up on him by drinking too much chocolate milk.

I've got to tell you guys this. She made this Combat Engineer proud, annoyed but proud. She knows she's not allowed anymore chocolate milk (has not put two and two together - she drinks too much chocolate milk, she gets tummy aches and it comes out of her nose). She'll take the time out but she will do the crime. So, Daddy has been wrestling the chocolate milk away from her (and followed by the inevitable temper tantrum). Even the cat runs away.

She tried grabbing the milk and running to her room but not fast enough. One time, I tripped over one of her toys and that gave her an idea.

She placed all sorts of obstacles including on the stairs. She knew where she put things. And she grabbed her chocolate milk before my eyes and made a dash for her room.

I tripped, stumbled, hit my foot, and since I was only wearing socks, stabbed myself quite a few times. By the time I reached her room, she already down half a cartoon and I grabbed the rest away from her.

Temper tantrum.

And then to make matter worst, Daddy broke a few of her toys. More temper tantrums.

My wife tried to soothe her but she felt her burp coming and gave her to me ... and yep, she threw up on Daddy.

This doesn't seem to be the case with your #1 daughter. If omitting chocolate milk from your grocery list is not an option, you're going to have to get down and dirty in the parenthood manual with the chocolate milk issue.

My advice is to tell her what she is going to look like if she keeps guzzling the chocolate milk, then show her a picture of a 300 lb. woman. :biggrin:

You could always buy it in those little cartons instead of a larger milk jug. That way she at least has to come up for air while opening another carton. The have these little child lock things that I have threatened to put on the refrigerator many times. Then I figured that in a week she'd have figured out how to unlock it and I would still have locked myself out of the fridge.

Last week she was getting in trouble and to avoid sitting in time out she used the "I have to go potty" excuse. So as I was waiting for her to get done so she could sit in time out, she locked herself in the bathroom and I could not get in. This made me pretty mad at the time so there was no way she was going to willingly open that door for me then. Talking to my ex I told him I was going to buy a handle without a lock to prevent this again, he suggested I turn the handle around so the lock is on the outside (I did this with her bed room door handle to keep her from locking me out of her bedroom while she took out every toy she owns). I had this vision of her locking myself and guests in the bathroom (I have been locked in her room once already, I don't go in alone anymore when she is home and mad @ me).

Kids are rotten evil little barbaric creatures. The thing is that when I was little, I was the good kid - the one everyone wished they had. I was quiet, could play alone for hours, did not talk back or get in trouble, did not talk to strangers and would absolutely not let go of my moms hand when we were in a store...then I went to Kindergarten and that all changed.

Personal I hate milk...it doesn't sit well in my stomach.

Milk is a good source of calcium, and if a child doesn't like milk (or anything for that matter), I wouldn't make them drink or eat it. There are substitutes they can have to get the same amount of vitamin you are seeking.

Most juices now are full of calcium -- and there are chewable calcium tablets children can take that taste good.

Why do children have to drink milk? Personal I hate milk...it doesn't sit well in my stomach.

Milk is a good source of calcium, and if a child doesn't like milk (or anything for that matter), I wouldn't make them drink or eat it. There are substitutes they can have to get the same amount of vitamin you are seeking.

Most juices now are full of calcium -- and there are chewable calcium tablets children can take that taste good.
My child is a fussy eater. Making her eat her meals is a 1 hr exercise.

Mackenzie has a whole list of things she won't eat:

Anything green (even green apples, unless I can cut the skin off before she sees it). She even questions mint choc chip ice cream.
Including anything that little pieces of green it in like some noodles have parsley pieces cut up in it - she will pull out all the little green pieces.
Most vegetables (sometimes she will eat corn...sometimes).
Anything that looks as though it might resemble a bean - even bean shaped candy.
Anything that has been cooked over fire and has a little bit of "black" on it (tortillas she loves as long as there are no black marks).
Solid red food (tomatoes, peppers, etc.).
Spaghetti O's without meatballs.
Pork roast unless I can get it cut up quick enough and convince her it is chicken. She is starting to catch on to this, though.
Meat loaf unless I put it on bread and call it a hamburger.

There is more, but I would be here all day. :rolleyes:

Mutton? Is that lamb? That is an exotic meat to me and I don't do exotic meat. Lamb, venison - cannot eat it. There is some goofy overpriced restaurant over here that serves all sorts of weird things - buffalo burgers, ostrich meat...no thank you. I will take a nice medium rare cow steak with some A1 anyday over anything found roaming the great white plains. :)

Mutton for us is goat meat. The beef available is buffalo meat, we do not cow meat as the animal is sacred for the Hindus and it not (legally) killed. I eat steak once in while.

Being in what was a predominantly anglo-saxon country mutton to you (THL) is probably mature sheep, as opposed to lamb or kid or goat. Anyway, they're all YUMMY, and go especially well with Worcestershire sauce. Never have tried buffalo but I'm keen. Did I mention rare? so the blood is still dripping out? MMMmmmmmmmmm.......

Colonel sir, is right. BM have you forgotten what is a buffalo for India? ;) Besides cows and buffalos belong to the family of ungulates (those that have hoves). Just like a cat is not a tiger but a tiger belongs to the cat family. Similarly cows and buffalos of (different types) belong are milch animals, but are quite different from each other.

ermm?? Matured lamb is not mutton, atleast in India. The pic THL posted is goat and normally goat meat is mutton, which is served through out India.

Goat leg soup and blood curry is my fave.

here and in England mutton is a sheep
Cambridge dictionaries

mutton
noun [U]
the meat from an adult sheep eaten as food
hence that lovely old expression we have about old people dressing young,
"mutton dressed as lamb"

In Bengal and Kerela, one is allowed to slaughter cows. It was so even before the Communist govts came to power in these states.

However, Indian beef is not worth eating since these are cattle put to pasture and not reared for its meat as is done in other countries.

Beef or buffalo is eaten by not only the Moslems of India, but also by the some of the subcastes amongst the Scheduled Castes.

With exposure to western nations and cultures many Indians of all religious hues are also eating beef or what is passed as beef. Beef is the cheapest meat product in India.

Buffalo in India is water buffalo and not a bison.

These taboos are on the wane and none really cares as to what one is eating!

Thanks for your enquiry which is rather kind of you.

Not to worry, I am still breathing and alive :)

I wish it were that I could be on a holiday.

My computer totally packed up and so I had to buy everything except the cabinet and the hard disks.

I am still to organise the computer and the software, but first I have to get a glitch rectified for which an expert is supposed to come any minute now.
