*slowly drinks*
so, no one will take me on?

Take you on, eh? What can you do, wee snippet? You call yourself "Aerial Musketeer" but can you tie a bowline, can you reef and rig, can you fend off boarders?

On the Airship New Gael, we all must perform the functions of Able Airman and more, or we will never be able to take on the forces of The Order.

If you think you have the gears, report to First Mate O'Shaunessy and tell him that you are to assigned to the Rigging Crew as per my orders. Please don't make me regret this decision.

(If the Engineer appointment on Captain Martin's DoodleBug-class Airship doesn't pan out, of course.)

Good Long Thinks are for the Philosophers. If you want to join the New Gael, we depart at 0-7:00. DESTINATION: The Badlands west of New Odessa. A Klanker of the ORDER has been spotted by the Quahadi Brotherhood and we aim to make sure it does not reach El Paso. Time and tide, m'dear . . . time 'n' tide.

What's really funny here is that the person who posted the above apparently
1. Has not seen the movie that inspired it, and thus knows nothing about it,
2. Didn't pay any real attention when they did watch it, or
3. Watched it and paid attention to it, but failed to retain any accurate memories of the experience.


Watched the movie on a number of occasions
Fully aware of the details
I understood the plot (T'ent that complicated),
 Enjoyed it BUT also found the teeshirt(Commercially available not my design) mildly amusing and even though it doesn't tie in to the movie details that well, the banjo picking ,tune at least, has become a vernacular in the UK for someone from a 'close knit' family.

Gimme 6 as they say in Norfolk.

I'm not sure what that sounds like in a Norfolk accent, but I'd only say "Gimme 6" in a (fake) Aucklander accent...   ;D

I see what you did there...

On the note of accents, I recently (by recently I mean 2 years ago) met someone with a godawful mashup accent made of Cockney and East Australian. Believe me when I say your picturing of it is inadequate :P

Well, of course, a proper gentlemen should limit his swearing to only the most extreme situations, and even then I believe that the only off-colour words to escape his lips should be 'blast' or 'dash'...

as in 'Dash it all'

or 'What the dash was that?'

 and I want all you Mother-dashers to remember that.

Blimey, by the time you've said that one you'll have missed the second train, unless you dashed off to the other platform.

Cursing doesn't make or break one's being a gentleman. It's how the cursing is done, as, to be completely frank, any word is a curse when uttered in such fashion.

I know some Polish builders that offer good work at a fair rate. Or maybe a basement bar?

I think it'll become more of a billiard room extension...

 An indoor range and or fencing salon/self defence dojo'ything for brushing up on ones technique?

I can't always make The Oxford based Linacre School of Defence and Mr Crawley's excellent Scottish school in Auld Reekie where he teaches Baritsu Fence and Fisticuffs is a tad too far from the Chilterns.

An Indoor range is a splendid idea! I cast my vote in favor of the Himalayas...

Although it would be convenient to have our own Himalayas nearby. If a chap wanted some Eastern-style enlightenment he could just nip up the hills to a Tibetan monastery, quickly get his third eye adjusted and be back at the Bar before nightfall -  one could be a kind of Daily Lama...
