    Blackadder on Wales: "It's a ghastly place. Huge gangs of tough, sinewy men roam the Valleys, terrorizing people with their close-harmony singing. You need half a pint of phlegm in your throat just to pronounce the place names. Never ask for directions in Wales, Baldrick. You'll be washing spit out of your hair for a fortnight".

    As Blackadder said so cruelly about Wales .....

    Great minds think alike @Thrasos :))

    Did it at the same time! That's the effect Blackadder has on people.

    Sir Thomas Urquhart's translation of Rabelais introduced me to the magnificent word "metagrobolized".

    A clear example of "Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness" or “the use of a lot of unnecessarily long words,” especially when speaking.

    Reminds me of how once in work talking with a manager about another co-worker I said something like " He's very erudite " , He looked at me and said he'd never heard anyone use that word before. I knew reading all those thrillers would pay off some day ;)

    Take this ranking for what it's worth. But I really enjoyed seeing some Bond photos on this page that I hadn't seen before. And Pierce, I hope that finger ain't loaded.

    I was looking at that article just yesterday! I agree with a couple of the rankings but I always take these rankings with a pinch of salt. I agree, I love the (unseen?) images.

    Yeah those rankings seem a bit random at times but those are some cool images I don't remember seeing before. I like the one of Roger in the speedboat.

    :)) it is screen Rant.

    Meaning we rant at our computer or phone screens when we read their articles? I suppose the clue's in the title! :))

    Its’ always interesting to read what other people have to say about Bond. From the twitter feed: “Super70s Sports” – which has become very popular over the past year or so. One of today’s entries concerns “Who Is the Best Bond?” For the author it is Connery, but all five of the other Bonds receive positive mentions in the responses - responses that are very similar to those here.

    It's also quite impressive to illustrate their no.1 choice with a photo which is of something else :D
