The forum should note this today, being the 75th anniversary:

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

The word association game has spoilt this funny and often thought provoking forum. Could we have a separate place for it so we can have our laughs back, please?

I couldn't agree more. It has been a bromide to the place where a varied array of postings brought humour and information, and yes, a few laughs as well.
