And there was I expecting a thread on the art of getting voices to move with cinematic mouths.

The Italian way of getting dialogue on to film seems always to have been post-synching, that is, not recording the actors' voices on set but bringing them in later to voice their own lines. But their audiences appear to be perfectly breezy about having the spoken syllables only very approximately matching the movement of the lips, and having the actors recorded in a soundproof box, close-miked without reverb, whatever the visual environment.

But fine pinkish wool from a tup's scrotum (post 37212) is much more interesting.

What I want to know is, how dedicated a fly fisherman do you have to be to go and shave the aforesaid tup's scrotum?

Standing on top of a steeple fishing for swallows? That's a surreal image for you.

When I was at university people used to fish for seagulls off the roof.

Really.

Yes.

Another (less hideous) game was to throw bread dipped in gin to the ducks and watch them waddle about pissed.

I've done that as well - pissed ducks are very funny

Is it true that if you feed ducks bicarbonate of soda on bread they explode?
My old english teacher claimed he used to nail their feet (whatever you call them) to the floor so he could watch them explode.. I somehow doubt it.

My friends father (can it be more appocrophal) served on board HMS Vanguard (our last battleship), the sailors had a particular dislike of seagulls & had a little game involving three lengths of fishing line & some bits of bacon rind, tie the line together tie bacon to the ends of each of the lines, throw bacon to seagulls & wait for the lines to go taut

My dad tells a story that he used to fish for seagulls off the pier. It was sort of an amalgamation of the other stories here.

They used to pour bicarbonate of soda into bread, roll it up, stick it on a fishing line and throw it up in the air.

For my generations part, we did experiment with mustard and seagulls but all that ended with was a pier (even more than usually) covered in seagull poo.

My dad used to tell me how he used to make Nitrogen tri-iodide with iodine crystals and ammonia. He used to put it on sugarlumps and when a fly landed on it the fly was blown up.

Sounds like a great way to get rid of the wasps in my garden - until the armed police squad arrived to sort out the gun battle.

Sadly this subject didn't make it into the D series.
Shame I thought the discussion of wool from tups' scrotums would have been quite good.
