    I know this subject has come up in the past over various topics, but sometimes you have to just stop and say "what the...?"

    This day and age, with social media and interactive news sites, there is always public input on everything from raising kittens to the space program. Often times, the comments are so far out there, it's entertaining, yet frightening.

    I just got finished reading a "sponsored" page on facebook (typical clickbait for ad revenue) about "15 top secret Nazi projects" which was total crap...the comments however, were quite entertaining and needed to be shared!

    The following is just a small portion of that:

    There was quite an international cross-section going on, including the one from the UK that stated that the "Nazis never had jets..."

    But out of all of the comments, my absolute favorite, which was about the most factual of all, was this:
    "Luke You people really have no idea what the f**k you are even talking about."

    :lol:

    I bet they all found every word they wrote at some web site or other :)
    It's a downside to having a free internet, anyone can post whatever crap they want to, but in the end it's a price worth paying.
    Cheers

    No, I didn't, as I've heard a rumour (probably true) that Cameron will tax the use of tin foil for purposes other than roasting food.

    Did you at least get the chance to straighten them out Dave? I would really like a one on one with Bryce, get him to quote his sources......share his drugs.
