Easy...

Loz is an old school nickname, derived from my Swiss surname. 2286 is the cubic capacity of classic 4 cylinder petrol Land Rovers that I enjoy restoring and driving around in. (Bit anoraky I know).
A bit anoraky???? :D

Err...Loz, old chap. If Alan H thinks it may be anaraky, you know you've got a problem. I, on the other hand, am wondering what unit you are measuring the cubic capacity with...and there's nothing anaraky about me! :D

Look Nick. There's a clue there. Loz says he has a Swiss surname. I therefore deduce the units are likely to be metric and almost certainly cubic centimeters.

2286 cubic centimeters!! :shock: Gracious! You'd never be able to get in it!


Aaah! But he has a Swiss surname... Maybe he's a cuckoo... :D



Just joshing, Loz. :wink: You are most welcome :D

Yes cubic centimetres...only the Yanks measure engine capacities in cubic inches!

Messing about with cars keeps me out of the pub... and I have to have something on a Sunday to fill my life.

As I said elsewhere, 'bob' has always already been taken any time I try to use it, so I just add the extra b from my surname.

However, it's also the way the Rowan Atkinson pronounces 'Bob' in the Blackadder episode with the cross-dresser.

I hate to admit this but I really ought not to be ashamed. After all, it's not my fault I was born over here but I haven't watched Blackadder before. Dave B, that skit was quite amusing.

omgods, rowan atkinson is hot....with that beard...oh my!

Calm down, Marian. I mean, you do know, I hope, that Rowan Atkinson is also Mr Bean?!

Yes, I do and maybe that's why he's so hot in the Blackadder series because he is the exact opposite in the Mr Bean stuff. For some reason, Mr Bean is a lot more popular over here. You can pick up any of those videos at the local outlet but nothing is available for Blackadder. What a shame!

Oh yeah, why are you telling me to calm down? I rarely get excited about television/movies. :wink:

Blackadder?
Is it a new series or a film or what?

Sorry, Gottard, it's another TV series from the BBC that you would nat be able to access - except for whatever bits they put on Youtube.

It was a comic series of serieses with the same two characters over history, the generations of Blackadder and his faithful (but dirty, smelly and thick) manservant, Baldric. I found them hilarious.

There are BBC DVDs on Amazon if you get addicted!
