does anyone know where this statement comes from?
i cant understand how this would get made up?
when pilots would have to go to the toilet mid-air,they'd just lean over.
sometimes it hit the rotar,damaging it,and flinging it all over the shop
one's a gunner,the other,main pilot.
the one who needed to shit would go to gunner posistion,then strap himself in,and posistion himself with his arse out,but his torso in.
jeez,get up to speed
i dont remember there being planes that advanced then
that and wet play
let's hear it for WET PLAY
you're a LOT older than i thought!
Most of these had a 7.7mm vickers machine gund or something synchronised (which is obviously a lot safer and easier)
I don't think it's funny. It'll be all the rage this time next year. I'm ahead of my time.
THIS is my perfect, moment, with you.
thought the words to that were "This is my birthday...". Sing it with those lyrics to yourself. Go on.
Sounds like something Catriona would wear...
"The expression [the shit hits the fan] is related to, and may well derive from, an old joke. A man in a crowded bar needed to defecate but couldn't find a bathroom, so he went upstairs and used a hole in the floor. Returning, he found everyone had gone except the bartender, who was cowering behind the bar. When the man asked what had happened, the bartender replied, 'Where were you when the shit hit the fan?' "

Farming Institute tried to introduce in 1938 to quicken up muck spreading. However, due to the onset of WWII, all fans were needed to cool engines down so the practice never took off, but the saying stuck.
i'm enjoying these
The phrase actually started off as “When the ship hit the fan” after a catastrophic accident when an indoor sailing boat was sucked into a giant fan during a sailing competition held at the municipal baths in Derby. Bits of boat flew everywhere.
The incident was picked up by the Chinese Olympic Institute as a possible new sport they could excel in at the Beijing Olympics. Sadly, because of the whisper system in China, what actually came out was “When the shit hit the fan”.
as making up shit stories about shit, society might be a better place.
i think your emplyer could do with as little input as possible from you
make something up instead
It's about Royal Engineers being given a penalty in the 1892 FA Cup Final. Unfortunately the pitch was horrifically muddy, and the taker, a Mr Hubert J Poolump, slipped on the quagmire as he ran up to take the kick. The fans behind the goal laughed heartily, prompting Mr Poolump, nicknamed 'The Shit', to take off to the makeshift stands and lamp the first unfortunate fan he could reach, which prompted a mass riot and the eventual abandoning of the game. Everyone at the game referred to the incident afterwards by asking those not there 'Where were you when The Shit hit the fan?'.
