What famous rock band invented a revolutionary farming contraption in 1701?

The Movie was on TV last week.

Scuttled by its captain (Peter Finch) in the mouth of the River Plate, Montevideo.

Correct.

I've never seen the film (Battle of the River plate isn't it?), is it any good? It's a great story for starters.

Special effects were not the same in the 1950s but even so, this was clearly done on the cheap. The ships looked like old Airfix models, probably because they were. But it's not a bad yarn.

You'll be wanting a question.

Who was the last Hapsburg king of Spain, who was so inbred (his parents were an uncle and niece) the poor bugger couldn't chew his food properly because of a grotesquely misshapen jaw, and was so infirm he couldn't possibly perform his husbandly duties? No surprises the line petered out after his death, which gave rise to the war of the Spanish Succession.

Mmm. Little bit of hedging there, methinks.

Yes it was Carlos the Second, also known as Carlos the Bewitched. Poor bastard. I blame the parents. And the grandparents. Who were occasionally the same people.

They were a wierd lot those Hapsburgs.

Gi's a question.
