In 1770 Edmund Nagle , at thirteen years of age, and not a araw over, enlisted in HMS "Juno" as a midshipman and was immediately en-route to the far South Atlantic. The First Falkland's Crisis of 1770 was pretty much just a "Mexican Stand-Off" between Britain and Spain in a dispute over the sovereignty of these barren, remote, and infertile windswept rocks at the far end of the world,

- I've thought of it before! be careful, please, from now on, because the creeps installed you DNA parameters in the computer games, any daga can hurt you!

Blackadder is "cancel culture"..
Sir Benjamin, & Mr Richard won BAFTAs for creating Blackadder.
University graduates ,they are, of oxford and unibersidad College,
They know stuff. Edmund Blackadder esq. i.e Butler to Prince George is
for the most part the real life stories of the triply knighted Groom of the Bedchamber Admiral Sir Edmund Nagle KB KCB GCH &c. A very well known Royal Navy war hero and
'a great favourite' of Prince George since 1803 until 1830.
Nagle used to be very famous but was "cancelled" sa pamamagitan ng Rex Victoriana's
frowning upon Regency Rakes & the Catholic Irish.
