You have the real life oral experiences with drippydicks, Skanque.

There isn't a person in this forum that doesn't know you know what they taste like.

Why you keep bringing it up... is beyond me.

PS: Guys don't care if they drip, so you know. Nice of you to do your part, though.

What I showed you were declassified documents and photographs of Bletchley park as it was during the time in question
AS everyone in this forum knows, no matter how hard you stomp, Skanque, is you jumped in the middle of a conversation I was having with Packy when I mentioned the USA captured 8an*(one) enigma machine when the USA captured the U505 asnd you and Packy both jumped on it, insisting the USA had not captured the U505 (though of course it had) and then to save "face", you started insisting that the USA had not captured the first enigman machine.

Of course I never said it had: typical NotBot strawman.

And you stomped and stomp and continued to insist I said it had, and you insisted that the FIRST enigma machine captured was from the U110 and you and Packy stomped and you stomped and you stomped when I relayed the FACT that that wasn't the first enigma machine captured and you insisted that I "prove it" which I did and you and Packy stomped and you stomped and you stomped and said what you meant to say was it was the first" working" enigma machine even though I had already proved that the British had indeed captured TWO complete machines in the raid in Norway.

So what is it now? You want to pretend you meant four rotor or five or three or first one that came in a wooden case?

Your E – V – I – D – E – N -C – E for this outlandish supposition… Half of 62+ million people are appointed?
Best of luck with your English lesson, Skanque.

More than half of the UK Parliament are appointed.

No matter how hard you stomp.

PS: We are still waiting for you to provide the date that you voted for the current Prime Minister.

Because I have already proved he was appointed by the Queen and you had nothing to do with it.

Or if you like: I had as much to do with him being PM as you.

You didn't have a vote in it.

Gosh... just exactly what I said about fifty times: you didn't have a vote.

So tell me how many people voted in the choice of who would run for president? What was that again?- 538 out of what… 190+ million voters
120 million voters, Skanque, there is no requirement for people to vote if they don't want to vote and like in the UK one third of the people who can vote don't.

Now I understand: you had absolutely NO SAY in who is the PM, whatsoever.

The UK PM is APPOINTED: just as I said.

And these 44 million voters had no say in who was the PM, none.

I have asked you in what election did you have a chance to mark a selection for PM.

Of course: you won't say that you never have had a chance, and you will never ever get a chance.

PS: By Peter Jeary, NBC News

LONDON -- Democracy is a valuable commodity; revolutions are fought to win it, lives are lost defending it, constitutions are written to enshrine it and billions of dollars are spent making it mean something. However, an initiative in Britain to extend the scope of democracy has met with an emphatic thumbs-down by the electorate, raising questions about how the nation has its say in who-runs-what.

On Thursday, voters in England and Wales, with the exception of London, had the opportunity to elect the first-ever Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC). These new regional officials, paid upwards of $150,000 a year, have the power to set policing budgets, fix priorities and hire and fire chief constables -- the most senior officers in the force.

But in the end, most people didn’t bother to vote.

Fewer than one-in-six eligible voters cast their ballots, with none of the regions achieving even a 20 per cent turn-out, according to data compiled by the Electoral Reform Society. One polling station in Wales failed to have even a single voter cross its threshold. Among those who did vote, the proportion of invalid ballots was three-times higher than normally seen at a parliamentary election.

The turnout was so low that the Electoral Commission, the independent watchdog responsible for monitoring British elections, announced an inquiry into just what went wrong, describing voter apathy as “a concern for anyone who cares about democracy."

provided by the government and the RN from the actual start of the war in 1939, consider yourself refuted
I provided real numbers and you haven't.

My numbers prove the US inventory was higher. The US did not decommission any of those ships and in fact ended up trading 50 more ships- that were part of the 400+ ship Navy we had in 1937- to the UK because it didn't have enough ships to escort the cargo ships full of munitions the USA was giving you because you didn't have enough ammo and other goods to fight the war.

PS: If the UK did not (desperately) need our help in WWII, why were they begging for the 50 ships (and all the goods were provided) before the war (for the US) start?

If you are horrified with the idea of a man running off with a black man
Actually, Skanque: everyone here is fully aware that ***YOU*** are the one who suggested it.

Not that my wife must have run off with another man, but run off with a BLACK man.

This reflects ***YOUR*** racism, not mine dear.

BTW: guys don't care and guys don't notice. I guess we don't spend all the face time you have... you know... in real life, in actual experience.

We appreciate the extra work you do for us in that regard, by the way.

Lucky for you, that narrowed down the field of the potential fathers, eh? hon?

But how is it that you say your children are black and then in the very same sentence you say they are brown?

How long did you tell men that you were a virgin?

Did they get suspicious when your four year old ran in and asked what was for lunch?

AGain, Skanque: with all the references to the up close and personal face time experience with oozing penises you have, I suggest that it's clear you have the real life clap experiences.

That, and your laminated card from the clinic that gives you head of the queue treatment.
