    ^^^ I agree - but from a very long distance away here in the Antipodes and because these legendary folk are just words on a page - I have this mental image of RT staff being somewhat like the comic book superheros (I'm told that the PC term nowadays is "graphic novels") that were the stuff of my youth -now many years ago.

    I can't confirm for certain, but I strongly suspect that each office @ R's HQ has its own phone-box. Employers come to work each day dressed in their "civies" - but once in their offices, they enter the phone box and don their super hero costumes -complete with underpants on the outside (my apology for leaving readers with that particular mental image).

    Once garbed in the appropriate superhero cloths they fearlessly continue the never-ending fight for goodness and niceness - and against badness and evil!!

    hmm....... perhaps it's time for more lithium?

    ^^^ Jack: to butcher a popular cultural idiom from a guitarist that I happen to consider to be a semi-god (Nigel Tufnel from Spinal Tap ) - the "Amp" is already turned-up all the way to 11

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    No, I didn't mean it like that at all. I meant for all of the info she passes on so freely.

    This reminds me of an article I saw last month.
    According to Brent Spiner (aka Data), Star Trek TNG, and in particular Patrick Stewart and Gene Roddenberry, may be responsible for a widespread change in the way Americans pronounce the word "data".

    https://gizmodo.com/patrick-stewart-...say-1837242931
    Before the pilot for Star Trek: TNG was even filmed, the show’s cast, as well as Gene Rodenberry, Rick Berman, and other crew members all gathered at the Sheraton Hotel in Hollywood to do a table read of the script for the episode Encounter at Farpoint. When Patrick Stewart’s character Jean-Luc Picard first addresses Brent Spiner’s Data, his pronunciation of the word differed to Spiner’s. To settle the dādə versus dadə debate, Gene Rodenberry created a new rule for the show, on the spot, that whoever says a name first decides how it’s pronounced from then on. So after seven seasons and 178 episodes of Star Trek: TNG, Stewart’s pronunciation of data, a product of growing up in Yorkshire, England, has slowly but surely replaced the way Spiner and millions of other Americans were first taught to pronounce the word.
    Apparently I should put something witty or profound in here.....
