Possibly, it depends on the tone. If there is a hint of gurgle it is more likely to be a shart.

Well, that's just my guess. One can understand the difficulty in both description and interpretation of such delicate nuances over the 'net.








Besides, I'm really not qualified to diagnose.

<picks up pipe and glass of fine cognac>

Indeed, the Brownian motion creates the singular that is Brownian sound.

.... Unless of course you are being crass....

It may seem harsh but I really do think assaulting the hijacked ships despite the possiblity of hostages being killed or injured is the answer.
At the very least after the first few incidents they will stop attacking UK ships or crews because it won't be worth it and go attack somebody else.
The government has to make sure it holds to this and carries it out so there is no question of surviving a hostage taking of our folk to make it unattractive.
It may hurt some of our folk in the short term but the long term makes it better for the majority.
Plus I still don't understand why ships are forced to have armed troops aboard and/or convoy them through. 50 ships with one warship escorting them is impossible to hijack from a small boat...........
