A connections game. Post the name of a person and the connection (no matter how tenuous or contrived) to the person in the previous post.

e.g. Gandhi

Gandalf because they both wore long, white frocks. Get it?

OK, first name is...

Pocohontas

No no no. This is obviously too complicated for you. You have to post a name with a connection to the name in the previous post. In this instance that would be David Beckham.

Connection is BUSH.

The Belgrano was sailing back to Argentina and out of the 200 miles
zone as far as I remember.
Something that is really ironic, The Belgrano was formerly a USS ship which survived the Pearl Harbour attack.

It wasnt a 2 mile zone, more like a 200 mile zone -- link now

200 miles is the standard distance of the exclusive economic zone of maritime countries (including uk and the us).

(btw -  the belgarano was not a battle cruiser but a heavy cruiser - not being picky or owt).

Ok I remembered it wrongly and it is something that I've tried to sort/edit.

Nelson Mandela

Freema has the word free at the front of her name and Nelson is Free and had a song written about him. "Free, Nelson Mandela."

What, is no one playing the game anymore or did I open a can of worms that will crawl all over this thread until they all become thread worms and then it will be the end of the world as we know it??
