Bloody brilliant Boaty. Spectacular dis-embarking!

Did you notice how his nose was permanently bent back by the water pressure from his diving.

LOL... he'd love Acapulco..
Dive's about the same height give or take a foot.. that bridge decks well higher (2-3 times) than the 10m boards I used to compete off..

Found this dated Oct. 28 2009, said ship pilot Ze Piexe was 82 years old at that time. Video included, but in Portuguese.
Jeezus.

Preliminary report of some kind of explosion near Manchester, UK early this morning.

Believed by police to have been an "industrial firework" - blew the butt off a little Fiat Punto (euro rollerskate-looking thingy) apparently.

Bruvver needs to try a bit harder innit
