Well now that these scale guys are successful flyers I need to either move on to another scale or come up with XMA's first proprietary craft. Thoughts?
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

Portugal yeah. I'm thinking a glider. Never done one before and like the sound of a challenge.

Since the moon is beyond our budgets best abilities, what landmark achievement are those of us involved in the XMA and supporting it in this great nation (praise the glorious leader Jubal) aiming for? :D

Good question. We need a viable goal.

I wish to point out, as usual, that our glorious leader is by definition the Basileus, currently Glaurung. I'm just the civil service. :P

Cue Yes, Minister reference. Does that make you the Sir Humphrey Appleby of Exilian? :)

Whilst perforce it would be perhaps, one might suggest, or at least one might humbly offer the possibility of suggesting, not entirely within the realms of precise scientific definition to make such an assertion as this, to whit, that the person, the humble functionary, to whom your present interlocutor is in the general habit of referring to by means of the perpendicular pronoun, should be compared to the figure that you mention in your previous missive, it must be noted - or at least known, if not noted in the definitive sense - that certain resemblances in the manner and articulation of the English language and indeed (one must hope) in the operational effectiveness of the two points of reference offered up for comparison may be worthy of full and proper consideration, as long as all the facts are duly taken into account and given the full and thorough enquiry they deserve. It would, however, be wrong to suggest a wholesale and direct comparison as accurate, not least as a result of the comparatively humble, one might say to put a finer spin on it agrarian, leanings and upbringing of a certain figure with the habits of pronoun usage aforementioned, not to mention a degree of commitment to certain ideas that the more well known character mentioned might have considered regrettable, or merely a source of amusement, such as democracy and indeed the dread term truth, the obfuscation of both of which may be considered the purpose of precisely one of these two characters and the antithesis of the purpose of the other, that is to say, the author of this humble missive.

I suggest, in short, that a full enquiry be set up into this matter.  :P

I don't think so. He's just channelling (very successfully!) the character Sir Humphrey Appleby from the 1980s British TV comedy Yes, Minister. It's essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand how the British Civil Service actually works.

I've been rewatching some Yes Minister recently. It's almost disconcerting how well it holds up considering the time that's passed!
