I do - it is a secret shame ! I'm fine on big planes, but in very small planes and on ships, I get seriously bulimic. On any kind of sea voyage, except in the Med (no waves) it is a given that I will toss my cookies at some point. I just get on with it, it's inevitable anyway, so get it over with and moveon.org. I always feel much better afterwards. I once spent 9 hours of a 10 hour evening crossing between Plymouth and Roscoff, wedged in a corner out on deck in a howling gale, soaking wet, just so I could be outside and look at the horizon (that helps, btw) - I was never so happy to see France in my life !

Don't mind rough seas at all, prefer hitting the waves straight on though because it's easier to walk if your not going from side to side all the time! I think the worst crossing I've been on was from Plymouth to Roscoff, 10ft (20ft) waves hitting us side on and a force 8-9 gale just to top it all off.

Bulbous ?! I'm young and beautiful and thin and gorgeous, I'll have you know. I am cursed with a finely tuned sense of balance, and so anything unbalanced (such as yourself, Kirk !) causes me accute intestinal distress. It's is the price one pays for being so damn fabulous, I guess.

But you'll notice now that all the ferries departing Pudding Island for Civilisation are now all owned by European companies (Stena, Britanny Ferries etc) - we can cut you off any time we like bwwuuAAHHAHA ! So watch it, moosh.

Tony Blair is set to announce that 3000 British troops are to be brough back from Iraq to stand guard at the UK entrance to the Tunnel. All trains are suspended. Any Europeans walking through the tunnel are to be terminated on site
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Re: JGPH1A, there's a tunnel now, you know. I was always conviced it was a mistake to build that thing.
Yes, but don't worry, it's sorted - we can always have the French farmers and truckers to block it in protest - happens all the time Besides, we need the tunnel to send all our illegal immigrants through to England.
Banco - re the airports - we have our secret weapon for that too. French ATC. You might be able to get to Europe, but it will take a VERY long time (provided they're not on strike !).

Come now, Banco - the UK loves immigrants, you get to mock them on TV and co-opt their cuisine as your own, all part of the rich multi-cultural fabric of the UK. Blimey, you let Kirkie stay, so your standards can't be THAT high
