OT Story

  1. Technicians at Roll Royce built a gun specifically to
    launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners,
    and military jets , all travelling at maximum velocity.
    The idea was to simulate the frequent incidents of
    collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the
    windshields.

    American engineers heard about the gun and were eager
    to test it on the windshields of their new high speed
    trains. Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to
    the American engineers.

    When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hit
    the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through
    the
    control console snapped the engineer's back-rest
    in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin,
    like an arrow shot from a bow.

    The horrified Yanks sent Rolls Royce the disastrous
    results of the experiment, along with the designs of
    the windshield and begged the British scientists for suggestions.

    Rolls Royce responded with a one-line memo:



    "Defrost the chicken."

  2. Glad you let me know Alan. Try typing in my address rather than cut and
    pasting it maybe? If it still fails I'm off to speak with my server.
