Exactly my argument too but to put it how one them put it:


Battleship=Dreadnought


And how could I forget:


Anything with an all big gun armament is a Dreadnought!

Come on tsenecal, we are not going to bite your head off, I知 was just explaining my story of my experience on my earlier debate on a Facebook page. The argument was petty and silly at times but everyone is entitled to their opinion and simply they didn稚 like my opinion.

  Surely the essence of a battle-cruiser was that it traded armour and guns (number and/or calibre) for speed. The Americans Iowa class, which had the speed of a battle-cruiser and the hitting power of a battleship, rather upsets this theory, though.

Well that was part of my understanding too and the argument I gave. I gave the information that in the end the fast battleship made the battlecruiser obsolete in this role which blurred the lines between battleship and battlecruiser but to no avail.

Any of us that work in a trade or profession run into in your experience from time to time Nick & to say it is insulting is putting a mild quote on it.  For 60 years of my life I have worked on British cars, mostly the sports models & I have found the world chock block full of experts that tell me on a regular basis that I don't know what I am talking about. ( I am just about  to start on my 201 first MGB engine build, I number each one & camshaft  specs too) that is not counting Lotus, Mercedes, Triumph, (lots) Ford, And on and on) Usually  I can stop them dead when I ask to see an example of their work(they have none , they read it in a book by so & so, so it must be right.This is one discussion or debate you have lost before you started.  I just now got off the phone with a customer who all of a sudden wants to use a  used Weber & manifold that he picked up somewhere to save money ( he has so far paid $4000.00)( 1275 bug eye & 5 speed) with me on account. He got a very flat No from me & not tactfully. I have stayed away from car forums as I don't have the time or patience to have a useless debate with an "Expert". I have much better things to do with my time than trying to straighten out the "experts" of this world with knowledge it has taken me a lifetime to learn. Mick B. (irishcarguy)

I tried facebook and de-registered for a number of reasons (poor security, and being bombarded with monstrous amounts of guff) and will never go back again.  I use it as a judgement of my friends since:  My real friends kept my phone number, street and E-mail address etc. and keep contact.  My "phony" friends (quite surprising with some of them) proved themselves when they switched to some form of private communication through facebook only and seem to have ignored any other form of communication ever since*.  I'm still somewhat ignorant these days as to why on earth a model forum exists on facebook when there's valid clubs and forums?

*Linkedin seems to be just as bad these days.

Each to their own I guess.  The worst thing these days is free speech and granting voting rights to the proles.  I don't believe Katie Hopkins or Donald Trump etc. have any right to post the offensive and fake words on-line that they do, but they do and much as they anger me, I don't reply or promulgate.  I must admit though, the older I get the more I learn to bite my tongue and try not to jump-in.

DesiderataMax Ehrmann
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.and STEER CLEAR OF FACEBOOK
