A fire which swept through the famous 19th Century ship Cutty Sark may have been started deliberately, police say.

I used to go past that with my family whenever we went to London when I was little.

I loved it. I just don’t get why someone would want to burn it down.

Most of the times I visited it, it was closed for renovation anyway.
But I did get to look around it once.


It’s a thing of beauty, certain individuals need to be castrated.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

She was/is a beauty.
However, luckily she was in drydock undergoing restauration and her masts were removed along with evrything else loose on deck and most of the planking. I saw on BBC World last night a guy from the project and he said that it looked far worse then it appears now after a first inspection. It will take longer (and more money) to finish the restauration, but she

I’ve been on the Cutty Sark many times.  Always leaves me with vicious hangover.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

I would be more surprised if the Cutty Sark was set ablaze by a Cutty Sark Molitov Cocktail o.O
