I know it's a bit of a cop-out to google stuff on this game - but honestly... Weather-related X's??? :?: :?:

So just to get the game rolling again (while I am procrastinating on doing something I should be doing):
So a bit of nerdy geeky stuff helpfully conveyed by Ms Google :geek: :mrgreen:

XBT
Abbreviation for expendable bathythermograph.

X-Rays
Very energetic electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths intermediate between 0.01 and 10 nanometers (0.1-100 Angstroms) or between gamma rays and ultraviolet radiation. Essentially all X-Rays from space are absorbed in the Earth's upper atmosphere.

If anyone has anything that is not google'd - I bow low :lol:

Ahh Trojan - ahemm - this is very important where I live. I used to wonder why people collected snow from cabin roofs (where there is no running water or electricity) - to melt for water. There was a nasty incident where 2 dog-sled teams had parked outside one of these open cabins... In heavy snowfall. Then the next weekend people (not in the know..) unsuspectingly melted snow right outside the cabin. 6 people with upset stomachs in a cabin with no water, electricity - and an outside toilet you have to dig through snow to get to - errr.... I think that's one of these things you only ever do once :roll:

Good one, Swordie - you get the honours of the next game now ;)?
