Explosion-proof is a general and imprecise, E-S. "Of an approved safe type" is a better specification. Please look at the nameplate of your engine room torch. Providing it has Ex e/Class I division II or 'better' type approval, shove it into your MYNAW or up your MBF52.

Both T and myself are great believers in the Queens English, no need for fancy flag hoists or morse code. Mr Morse, Baden Powell and Their Lordships lost the run of themselves in the last century with their codes etc. All Johnny Turk and H E Johnny Kaiser needed to know was "We are coming to get you". No code needed. QED.

Just in the interests of clarification, is that Queens' Belfast, or Queen's College London, English Language? They look similar when written down, but sound completely different when spoke proper like wot I writ 'ere.

Oh dear ES, one message and that one of destruction. Is that what our civilisation is reduced to?

What of the Táin Bó Cuailnge?
What of the Book of Kells?
What of Cú Chulainn?

All reduced to a dull clattering of spanners?

Aloha! All you lovely young ladies on the quay wishing to come aboard for a "going away" party. Please, welcome -- follow the duty officer (FJ) up to the pool deck and let the plastic stewards know what you would like to drink. Finger food to follow shortly. Here's to a lovely evening.

All food can be prepared with the artists only using their feet if you wish, gentlemen. I'm not sure I would tell the ladies.

My stewards are capable of many dextrous tricks, the training is long and arduous. By the way, isn't WD40 fish oil anyway?

Yes, dear -- you would like to try some of our poi ------ well we have apple poi, strawberry poi, blueberry poi, rhubarb poi, pecan poi, and, if you have a heartier appetite, steak and kidney poi. Other than the steak and kidney all are available with copious quantities of ice cream, or whipped cream, or yogurt.

I trust that is Maori or performing poi. Images of the edible (?) poi suggest it is a dish finished off in a lower bowel, the enduring feature of which is a roughage balance incompetently managed.

"poi can be known as "one-finger," "two-finger," or "three-finger" poi depending on the consistency, alluding to how many fingers are required ..."

Thank you, I think I will have to decline.

Don't want my fingers in too many... orifices.

Noted Sir William. I have posted a steward outside your suite, at your call when you re-awaken.

We should sail for Puerto Montt tomorrow -- we can always tele-transport Sir William back aboard when he's healthy again.
