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).

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

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.

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

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

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:

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!

I thought the greys were dangerous for the reds.
