  12. This site has the 99 bottles of beer song written in 1500 different programming languages. I particularly like the JavaScript and Perl obfuscated versions. The PHP version makes sense, the Java version seems over the top and the COBOL version makes sense but I think the beer would be a long time warm by now.

  15. Air Ministry, 15 November 1940.

    The KING has been graciously pleased to confer the Victoria Cross on the undermentioned officer in recognition of most conspicuous bravery : —

    Flight Lieutenant James Brindley NICOLSON (39329) — No. 249 Squadron.
    During an engagement with the enemy near Southampton on 16th August 1940, Flight Lieutenant Nicolson’s aircraft was hit by four cannon shells, two of which wounded him whilst another set fire to the gravity tank. When about to abandon his aircraft owing to flames in the cockpit he sighted an enemy fighter. This he attacked and shot down, although as a result of staying in his burning aircraft he sustained serious burns to his hands, face, neck and legs. Flight Lieutenant Nicolson has always displayed great enthusiasm for air fighting and this incident shows that he possesses courage and determination of a high order. By continuing to engage the enemy after he had been wounded and his aircraft set on fire, he displayed exceptional gallantry and disregard
    for the safety of his own life.
