Hmm, if it's that, then it's OK. That's like saying "Don't care about the torpedos" but that doesn't sound so good. And "damn" doesn't mean what I thought.

"Fleas? Oh the fleas. Don't mind, I've made the soup now, want to taste it?"

Who is that Admiral Farraguts?

And about that word, I must first admit that I'm using a Danish/English/Danish dictionary, and it had the word "damn" but not a translation that fit the quote.

"The horses" George said looking "I'm taking care of them, and if you look over your right shoulder you'll see Incon just behind you. Can you feel her breath on your neck?"

"Enough of this," yelled Apollo, and he clapped his hands together making a thunderous noise.

The waters along the nearby riverbank soon began boil and churn, then heave about as the backs of large catfish broke the surface. The finny creatures flopped their way up the riverbank and right into the midst of the hundreds of wiggling worms. The worms were consumed, every last one. Then the catfish flopped their way back to the river's edge and disappeared beneath the water's surface.

"Well now," said Apollo, "Would anyone like to join me for a little soup?"

I don't know the exact story behind this admiral, but I think he made a Death or Glory decision, prob. in the US Civil War. I've always heard and used the expression as "Never mind what can go wrong, lets go for it..."

"I think I could do with a bit of lamb chowder, " Jayhawk mumbled

Fine, fine, lets bring a end to this debate about Admiral Farragut, heres his bio....

David Glasgow Farragut was born July 5, 1801, at Campbell's Station, a few miles southwest of Knoxville, Tenn. He
was the second of five children of Jorge Farragut who was born on the Spanish island of Minorca, and Elizabeth Shine
Farragut of North Carolina. Jorge was employed in the Caribbean merchant trade in 1776 when he decided to join the
American colonists in their fight for freedom against the British. The Spanish mariner served his adopted country throughout
the American Revolution where his heroic exploits earned him the special thanks of the governor of South Carolina.

Jorge joined the U.S. Navy in 1807 as a sailing master and fought the British
during the War of 1812. Farragut's mother died when he was seven, and his bereaved
father Jorge sent him to live with the family of a close friend and fellow naval officer,
David Porter. Porter adopted the young boy and two years later helped him receive an
appointment as a midshipman in the U.S. Navy. Farragut performed the duties of
captain's aide, prize master of the ship Alexander Barclay, quarter gunner and powder
boy during the next few years. Farragut's age of 12 precluded his promotion at the time.

During the course of his career, Farragut held various positions before his
distinctive service in the Civil War. Of the many notables, Farragut served as naval aide
to the American Minister to Tunis and later established Mare Island Navy Yard in
California. During that time he learned to speak French, Italian, Spanish and Arabic and
studied the social, economic and political history of the Mediterranean area)

The Civil War brought great credit to Farragut. During the famous 1862 Battle of
New Orleans, Farragut practiced the doctrine of today's Navy, "Forward ... From the
Sea" and also barked the now-famous expression which inspires Navy personnel even
today, "Damn the torpedoes! Full steam ahead!"

Farragut had been appointed commander of the West Coast Blockading
Squadron and was ordered to open the Mississippi to Union vessels and to attack New Orleans. He opened the Battle of
New Orleans, April 18, 1862, and 10 days later, Confederate forces surrendered. During the battle, Farragut had attacked
from the river and reduced the land-based Confederate forts to surrender, foreshadowing today's naval doctrine 134 years
ahead of its time. Farragut had also proved then-President Abraham Lincoln's trust in his selection by this smashing victory,
and Lincoln was the first to acknowledge it by submitting Farragut's name to the Congress for promotion. On Dec. 23, 1864,
Congress commissioned Farragut a vice admiral. On July 26, 1866, Farragut became the Navy's first four-star admiral,
making history as a Hispanic.

Having seen service during the War of 1812 and the Mexican War in addition to all his other achievements, Farragut
has been historically credited with unlimited self-confidence, that helped him overcome any obstacles placed in his way.
Gideon G. Wells, Lincoln's Secretary of the Navy, said of Farragut that he would willingly take greater risks to achieve
desired results than any other high-ranking officer in either the Army or the Navy.

Farragut was and is a role model for every Sailor, not just Hispanic Sailors. Embodying the many sought-after traits of
the professional Sailor and officer, Farragut brought new meaning to honor, courage and commitment. Farragut is a true naval
hero.

Farragut's statue at Farragut Square in Washington, D.C., will be rededicated Oct. 1, 1997, with a ceremony
sponsored by the Navy Order of the United States and the addition of a U.S. Park Service wayside marker honoring
Farragut's many accomplishments.

Anyone want to verify it?

"Let's see," said Civis Romanus. "I want one beef taco, one cheese enchilada, one chicken burrito enchilada style, refried beans, spanish rice, a tostada, a sweet corn patte' and Coca Cola on the side." Stunned and nearly speechless, they all turned around and stared at Civis.

It was Tim The Great who spoke first. "Civis Romanus, by all of the gods, what in the world is 'Coca Cola'?"

"Gentlebeings, angelics (and godlets) remember the 23573280th Commandment: Thou shalt not advertise on a public website."

The crowd was stunned.
"Can I have some tea?"Jayhawk asked as the skies dimmed again. "Herbal, please."

Thanks Legion
One of Hollands naval heros, no notde Ruyter, Hein, or even Doorman, but this chap named "van Speyk" has a 'famous'quote.
"Dan liever de lucht in" which translates to:
"I'd rather be blown sky-high"
According to legend he said so as he fired the powder hold when Belgian troops attacked his beeche dvessel. Rumpur has it, the Belgian troops were a bunch of drunks and van Speyk's 'bravery' was morelike foolishness...

Suddenly thundered rumbered from above, in the heavens.

"Now What?!" Screamed someone from the crowd.

No answer.
The person spoke up again. "I Said--!" He was cut off buy another rumbling of the clouds. Suddenly a small figure apeared before, and above them. They could hear it screaming, and yelling its guts out. It was falling. Slowly the figure grew. It got bigger in size, and louder in noise. IT was falling straight at them.
"Aaaaaaaaaaaah!"

Crash!

The figure landed on the table that they were sitting around, he smashed right through, taking the nice white tablecloth with him. They all looked through the hole in the table, to see a man, in ...purple robes, covered in food and drink. Titanicus looked (sheepishly) up.

"Emmm....hi...Ouch." He then fell back into a macaroni casorole. Which looked surprisingly fitting as it oozed around his head...

"Ye gods!" Incon cried, dropping her can of Peps-- er, Schmepsi - "that poor man's drowning in macaroni cheese!" She quickly pulled Titanic Guy out of the goo.

"Just keep that fowl carbonated stuff away from me," he muttered, before fainting.

Meanwhile, Pepsi Girl/Man/Boy/Drinker/Individual said "Lift your glasses and drink deeply!"

"We don't have to drink your awful muck! It's our choice!" Civis cried.

"Yes!" Pepsi Person nodded its head. "And it's the choice of a New Generation..."

Suddenly, the clouds parted (yawn, once again) to reveal...

A big bright light. Out of the light came a voice. "Hey, George, that Pepsi girl is a sort of market lady, get her!"

George immediately started running against the Pepsi Girl. In the last second she saw him and made a fast take off, leaving George with a piece of her dress in his mouth.

A big hand came out off the sky grasping the Pepsi Girl and the voice were heard again saying: "Didn't you hear me, no advertising at these forums."

...just as Titanicus woke up, to find himself sitting up. "Wha...?" He asked. Startled by the loud noise. The whole group was sitting around him, just staring...."We got bored," exclaimed Civis, "You trashed our delicious meal...so what else are we to do? Talk... ah-hah! We've about wored that out..." Titanicus nodded. and looked around the group. Suddenly he sawded the smiling face of a lion. "AAAACK!" He yelped, and fell back, onthe chair, He looked around to see some tigers or a bear...but nope. Just a Angel..with a beard... This was all to much for Titanicus. He moaned and fell back, (more like to the side...he was on a high backed chair...major feat! fainting sidewayz) this time into a platter of Green Jel--emmm Shmell-O...

Incon once again pulled out her hanky, dipped it in the river water and began cleaning up the face of the young man who had just dropped in. "First it's macaroni and cheese, then its green slime schmello...I suppose he want's dessert next. Well, you're on your own for that!" Big Tusky trumpeted. "See, even BT says enough is enough."

Titanicus opened one eye and then the other. "Where am I?" he asked.

Thank you for your cooperation."
