Now that the urban legend of the "faulty door latch on the beer truck" has been verified, let us all CR4 engineers put away the past and smile; and be happy!

I thought it was, but couldn't remember how to spell it...or that it was Dutch (oops)

But the Germans are mourning this tragic loss (I know I am!) and also many Brits (especially the Army)

That's why, when you enter a pub, you must search and seize the ugliest, nastiest dirty broad, cause that's the one you're ending up with when you leave all drunk.
