  • Ex SAS John 'Captain Price' McAleese Dies

    Ex-SAS soldier John McAleese, who led the raid that ended the 1980 siege at Iran's embassy in London, has died. Fair to say he was without doubt a great inspiration for the COD character 'Captain Price'.

    Ladies! If a man says he'll fix something - he will. He doesn't need reminding about it every six months, OK?

    RIP
    My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?
