Police boxes started to appear in 1880. “Modern” police boxes, like the one in Doctor Who started to appear in 1920. A police box was a telephone for the use of members of the police. Police boxes were before two-way radios.
Police boxes have a telephone that is linked directly to the local police station, allowing officers to keep in contact with the station, reporting anything unusual, requesting help, or to detain prisoners until a vehicle could be sent. This was a time when the officers walked or rode bicycles rather than use a car.
There is light on the top of the box, which would flash to alert an officer that he should contact the station.
Members of the public could also use the phone, which was on the outside of the box, to call for help.
"Quick use the police box to call for help"
A British time machine that malfunctions at every level of performance.
Given all the trouble that Doctor Who has controlling the Tardis' destinations, they should have called it the reTardis.
|3.||Little Blue Box|
the "Little Blue Box" is used to refer to the TARDIS, the Doctor's time-traveling spaceship in the BBC show "Doctor Who". The show, the longest running television show, is one of the most popular shows in the United Kingdom, and is also popular world wide. TARDIS, or Time And Relative Dimensions In Space, is how the Doctor is able to travel through the universe. To people who do not know of the Doctor and see TARDIS, since it is disguised as a police box, call it a "little blue box".
Donna: You really believe in all that stuff, don't you?
Grand dad: It's all over the place these days. If I wait here long enough . . .
Donna: I don't suppose you've seen a little blue box?
Grand dad: Is that slang for something?
Donna: No, I mean it. If you ever see a little blue box flying out there in the sky, you shout for me Gramps. Oh, you just shout.

The inner-city Birmingham of the early Eighties was a tough place for a young black man to grow up. Racial tension exploded in vicious race riots in 1981 and again in 1985. The West Midlands police were regularly accused of over-zealous and heavy-handed behaviour, particularly when it came to the random stop-searching of black youths. There was also an ever-present threat from the far right.more...
It was in this climate that some of the city’s young men began to band together for self-protection. Meeting up in a fast-food restaurant in the Lozells district, the loose-knit group planned to carry out vigilante patrols to protect the community and fight the injustices being overlooked.
One of the founders of this fledgling organisation was fork-lift truck driver Arthur ‘Super D’ Ellis. A good-looking man with the gift of the gab, he had fathered two sons—Nathaniel and Marcus—by the age of 19. His relationship with their mother had ended and by the time Arthur began hanging around with what had been dubbed the Johnson Crew he had moved on to pastures new. His relationship with a pretty girl named Beverley Thomas would also come to an end, but not before she had given him three more children—twins, Charlene and Sophie, and a son, Michael.
As the Johnson Crew grew, so the threat from the far right began to recede. And with unemployment in inner-city Birmingham running at 20 per cent, moving into crime became a way to make a living.
The gang members were very close-knit...
Airsoft can be considered a sport or a hobby. People play in operations (OPs) that can be from 20 players to in the hundreds. Also people can play in scrimishes, which tend to not be as organized. Airsoft guns can be operated by spring (air cocking), gas (hfc134a, hfc22/green gas, co2), AEGs or "Automatic Electric Guns" (battery, 7.2-12 volt). The guns are based off of real guns, and in airsoft real guns are called "Real steel".more...
Hobby airsofters normally collect guns for the close replication of their real steel counterparts, and the normally the only time you can tell the difference is material. Airsoft guns tend to use the real gun trademarks along with the manufactor trademarks.
Operations are military simulation, or mil-sim. Airsofters love airsoft because it is really realistic and why we don't play with markers (a.k.a. hairdryers with a CO2 tank and a hopper). One reason why airsofters don't join the army is when you are hit in the head with a bb, you call yourself out. If you are hit in the head in the army, you don't call anything. You're dead.
Airsoft guns can be relativly cheap if bought at Wal-Mart or a sporting good store, but those guns are of low quality and reffered to as "LPEGs" or "Low Powered/Priced Electric Gun". There are medium quality guns that or normally clones of
|7.||GameFAQs Message Boards|
Let's start with a basic description of the GameFAQs Message Boards and the moderators. The mods are basically like a certain group in history that tried to kill anyone that they did not like. I will put these guys into simple catergories for easier reading.more...
Users - These guys could either be the civilians that snitch on people in hiding for cash(which, in this case, is karma)or these guys could be the short-lived rebellion. Within the rebellion group, we have the sub-catergories. We've got the defensive ones that don't do anything unless they are provoked into doing so and then you've got the offensive guys, who will try to strike first. The defensive guys are basically the users that usually do good enough to not get any moderations, but when they get a moderation for something silly, that's when they cuss out people, thus resulting in more heat from the mods. The offensive guys, are the guys that intentionally get themselves modded, as a symbol of defiance. Most of these guys are the trolls(who are explained later) and the account suiciders. These guys, ironically, are the only reason to even step near the message boards. They are so entertaining, that even the suckiest troll/account suicide topics are hilarious in some way.
Then you've got the snitches. The guys that are the "I never do anything wrong!" type of guys. They mark messages here and there, thinking that they are doing anything of significance. These guys have hopes of becoming moderators(as weird as t...
