In 1201 John of England puts an embargo on wheat exported to Flanders in an attempt to force an allegiance between the states. He also puts a levy of a fifteenth on the value of cargo exported to France, and disallows the export of wool to France without a special license. The levies are enforced in each port by at least six men, including one churchman and one knight. John also affirms this year that judgments made by the court of Westminster are as valid as those made "before the king himself or his chief justice".

1200 out of 1200 is the score you get for that comeback...  ;)

Also we are back on par, the post count now matches the number. What I thought was a clanger by Pax was actually a carefully considered plan that has at last brought balance to the Force.

The force is strong in you, Padawan... :tu:

The Behringer XENYX 1202 Is one of the best instrumental pre-amps you can buy. I know - I use one. (But it doesn't improve my playing, dammit!)

In 1205 Anjou is conquered by Philip II of France. Fearing a French invasion of England itself, John of England requires every English male over 12 to enter an association "for the general defense of the realm and the preservation of peace".

U-boat U-1206 was sunk - BY IT'S OWN TOILET!!! (I just couldn't let this snippet pass by!)

U-1206 was one of the late model boats fitted with a new high-pressure toilet allowing the toilet to be used at greater depths than before.  On 14 April 1945, the boat was quietly cruising at a depth of 200ft only 8-10 miles off Peterhead, Scotland, when the commander, Kptlt. Schlitt (I kid you not), decided to use the toilet without consulting a rating trained in its operation (the procedure was complicated). Something went wrong, and when the specialist arrived he misunderstood the situation and opened the wrong valve, which resulted in large quantities of seawater entering the boat. The water reached the batteries directly under the toilet, causing the production of chlorine gas, and the boat was forced to surface immediately; unfortunately right underneath an enemy aircraft. The crew managed to clear the gas by blowing clean air into the boat, but were at the same time bombed by the aircraft, causing extensive damage which left U-1206 unable to dive. Considering the hopeless situation, Schlitt had no choice but to destroy the secret material and order Abandon Ship to save his crew.

The good ol' Kapitanlieutnant really found himself in the 'Schlitt'! (In more ways than one.)

1211 is a collection of artists, songwriters, and performers that God brought together at Gateway Church (South Campus, in Austin, Texas), who share a love for music and a past of brokenness. What began as a weeknight life group, a platform for tackling hard questions of spiritual doubt, frustration, and healing, quickly evolved into a dynamic community of 15 singularly creative friends with a deep passion for praising God through worship.
