    I think I peaked with the boy from the Flight of the Navigator question to be honest. Everything else is going to feel like a step down. I may just retire on top.

    Your Karate Kid one from the other week put the tune of "You're The Best Around" in my head, such that when it turned out I had an Amazon credit for a free MP3 I downloaded the song and proceeded to sing it to myself non-stop this weekend!

    No idea with yours - I think khans got something to do with mental hospitals always being on a corner or something like that.

    Bedlam (Bethlehem) hospital..?

    Possibly it was round a bend in the river Thames...

    @LB:
    You can't have a sonar pod too close to the rudder as it would be useless...That's why the Dallas hides behind the October's rudder as they're deaf to that general area...

    Though it does have that caterpillar thing that could give a use to the sonar thing...

    I'll give it to you Acid.

    I was specifically referring to the Crazy Ivan move the Red October pulls - you wouldn't need to clear your baffles if you have a towed sonar array. The other time in the film is when Ryan is discussing the caterpillar drive with the sub expert and asks if it could be a towed sonar array (answer: 'no, too close to the screws') which is an odd question when you can already see the sub has one elsewhere.

    Your turn.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Right, errr...I don't have a question :)

    Also, I'm going home now so I wouldn't be able to check to see who's right...Some other time...

    Good enough. It's the Moccasin Bend nut house here in Chattanooga.
  • Deleted user 4 March 2013 17:15:32
    I'll go, then.

    What year was the first recorded use of the acronym "OMG"?

    1970s, when they released their first album.

    Erm, have you got a source for this?
    I've done a google search for 'round the bend origin' and none of the first few results suggest it has anything to do with Chattanooga.
    If anything, I'm inclined to believe that no one really knows the origin...!

    This was on QI the other day - did Winston Churchill first use it? In the 1920's?

    It was some letter they've found from the 20s, wasn't it?

    Edit: Misinformed as Deckard

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Not that early.

    1920s was reasonably close.

    Was it just before WW I when Archduke Franz Ferdinand was shot and heard to declare, "OMG, they 've fucking done for me, Charlie"?
  • Deleted user 4 March 2013 18:53:29
    I guess we're close enough. It was 1917, in a letter from Admiral John Fisher.

    I hear that a new order of Knighthood is on the tapis—O.M.G. (Oh! My God!)—Shower it on the Admiralty!
