Most haven't a clue. We do have a number of British ex-pats around here though. Not sure what they will think of it.

I'm still surprised it got through Virginia DMV. I read an newspaper article where they have a team that supposedly vets potentially off colour plate requests. All they had to do was google the word and they would have cracked it. Nice to know though that jobsworths are as worthless here as they are in the UK.

BTW Rupert, how would you know that your girlfriend's parent's car which they let you drive is quick?

Rupert, choose one or more of the following as to how you know the Magnum is quick. There are some incorrect responses here.

a) Ben told me

b) I read a test report

c) The cops couldn't catch me

d) Awesome - 200 feet of nine inch wide black stripes on Ditchley Drive.

Quote:
"Bollocks" is a word of Anglo Saxon origin, meaning "testicles" in British English and in Hiberno-English. The word is often used figuratively, as a noun to mean "nonsense" or conversely to mean "top quality" or "perfection", an expletive following a minor accident or misfortune, and an adjective to mean "poor quality" or "useless". The common phrase "Bollocks to that!" expresses a distaste for a certain task or subject; "the dog's bollocks" expresses the opposite, namely admiration or pleasure.

Perhaps the best-known use of the term is in the title of a punk rock album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols. Testimony in a resulting prosecution over the "obscene" term demonstrated that in Old English the word referred to a priest, and could also be used to mean "nonsense".

OR this

Bollix is a word game based on a possibly familiar real-life game. Find as many words as possible on a 4x4 board of random letters in three minutes. Longer words award more points.

At the moment, Bollix is a one- or two-player game. I don't have much confidence in the networking code yet, which is why I consider this version to be “alpha.” Ultimately I'd like to have network games with an arbitrary number of players.

I'll take a, b and err d) from when you were showing us how fast it was! Oh and as its pretty much an AMG Estate with the Hemi, then it's not going to be slow.
