I know we have had this sort of topic before, but it usually has been about WW2-ish planes and has generally been won by one of the French bombers from the late 20s/early 30s.

So what I want to know is whether there has ever been a plane that is so ugly it makes this

The Amiot 143 would be hard to beat: http://aircraft-list...b/Amiot_143/22/

Not sure if I think the Sturgeon is truly ugly or just strange and weird. It looks to me like it was built from parts of about 3 or 4 different planes, any of which may have been quite reasonable looking on its own. It's the sort of thing I'd expect if someone mixed up the plans of different aircraft as a joke and nobody noticed. Mind you, I also think that's how the rules of cricket must have been developed, so my judgement may be suspect.

Cricket is bizarre! Only the English could come up with a game you play for a whole week and still end up in a draw.

I might be on thin ice here- the Scots invented golf, a crazy, masochistic test of endurance, patience and skill guaranteed to ruin any decent walk.

That probably sums up the cultural difference between the two nations in a nutshell, really. ;)

Perhaps a legacy of the chief designer's Romulan ancestry?

Or maybe it was just an early Cylon

And don't forget that it is the sport of choice for the taliban.

You can play it fully clothed, wearing a beard - and there is great scope for betting
