as always the best things come from the UK!!! BSE, VX, Modern map of the
wordl, World Chaos, etc. etc. however I don not think DB2 came from the UK
or was there a UK developer on board "back then"...

VX nerve agent is a nasty product and its use is banned. It was not
used in WWII, however. It was developed, in the UK, in the early 1950s.

Walter,

That is why you should keep German clean and not let all those English
phrases and words slip in. My father would be most upset if you said
Dee Bee Two Nein instead of Deh Beh Zwei Neun.

VX is often referred to as VX gas. It was World War II chemical agent
that is quite unpleasant and nowadays illegal.

Best

Jorg
