    Now I might be mistaken, but I'm fairly sure they were talking about 'selling' the Royal Mail, not taking it for a jaunt in a boat.
    But, apparently, they have ditched their plans for the Royal Mail 'Sail'...

    The tickers on the 24 hour news channels are usually the worst. Spell check has ruined the ability of editors to catch mistakes. At least "sail" is correctly SPELLED. :D

    + I was watching something on FNC the other day that had an -INNG ending instead of -ING... They took it down quickly though.

    When you're in hyperspace you're not even going that fast.

    I have CC on 24/7 on my screen in my room and I always see distorted text and misspelled words but nothing like that!

    Man, I would be happy with traveling slightly below the speed of light. I guess the shuttle just performs better in fantasy news-land.

    I think for live broadcasts (which I'm guessing this is, since it's a news broadcast) they use speech recognition systems rather than typists, but I guess it misunderstood "evacuating" which I assume is the word that's supposed to be there ;)

    I guess the Shuttle Enterprise did break warp speed when they dropped it from the 747.

    Is that BBC one recent? I've noticed in the past week or so that they've really been slipping on BBC News 24.
