Assuming we end up on contract for anything beyond a minimal make it run on w7 update I suspect making those substitutions will be an IA requirement we'll be expected to meet.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

I just read this on a forum, the guy is talking about a part of south London, the Elephant and Castle, E&C, its hysterical:
"Come on big Jim, its so rough down there that the Elephant and Castle has twinned with Damascus. I heard community policing down there is done via a helicopter and a bungee rope!!!!!! Even the police dogs need counselling.
I was in a rare pub down there years ago and an American tourist commented on the quaintness of 'Ye Olde English ' look with all the saw dust spread everywhere. "Quaintness" said the landlord , that's what's left of the furniture after a punch up last night.
Any straying tourist (like Kevin Spacey did one night)would get the impression dogs grow on trees in Burgess Park but it's pit bull terriers going through jaw strengthening routines hanging off branches by their teeth !!!!!
Again it's so rough there that 'Mothercare' in the shopping centre had to hire 'bouncers'.
Putin has a video of him walking down the Old Kent Road to the Heygate late at night on his own. But everyone knew is was faked as he aint that tough. "
Brilliant, utter genius!

I love the bit from QI (I think, might have been "Mock the Week) when they were discussing towns official catchphrases:
"Tower Hamlets: Lets..."
"Get Out Alive"?
