Mayday Mayday Mayday! We have a Hun-sized problem...

[Wikipedia: The Mayday procedure word was originated in 1923, by a senior radio officer at Croydon Airport in London. The officer, Frederick Stanley Mockford, was asked to think of a word that would indicate distress and would easily be understood by all pilots and ground staff in an emergency. Since much of the traffic at the time was between Croydon and Le Bourget Airport in Paris, he proposed the word "Mayday" from the French "m'aider", a shortened version of "venez m'aider" (meaning "come and help me").
[Before the voice call "Mayday", SOS was the Morse code equivalent of the Mayday call. In 1927, the International Radiotelegraph Convention of Washington adopted the voice call Mayday as the radiotelephone distress call in place of the SOS radiotelegraph (Morse code) call.]

    Boo! No baton fight? The protestors are now a bunch of cowards and losers. I guess, I just have to watch the old youtube clips for some action.
