Ugly is in the eye of the beholder.  I actually liked the design, but then again, I liked the look of the BV-141... ::)

Yes, as a matter of fact, a few days ago I became "teenager-less" when my daughter turned 20. The last day of her being 19 was celebrated by mutual yelling of "You don't understand me" and "Go to your room!". It was our last time to have a father-teenager event, we laughed for a good five minutes afterward!

Just got back from seeing "Monty Python Live (Mostly)".  A sort-of-live/delayed simulcast from London of the new Monty Python stage show.   That was one of the songs in the show and it's still damned good, even today.    It was fun to see all the old sketches redone, live and despite the occasional fumble such as Eric Idle's moustache coming off in the Nudge, nudgle, wink, wink, sketch (which he handled very well, by simply pausing and fully removing it before continuing).  However what struck was how much they have all aged and in some ways how sad it was that they were still doing the same stuff they'd been doing 25+ years ago.   If you're a fan, its worth seeing, if nothing more for the ad libs.   8)
