Not so zippy - Alan is , Chuck not - think of kids TV (well adults if you're as old as me) It's not rocket science

Alan (Shepherd)
Virgil (Grissom)
John (Glenn)
Malcolm (Carpenter)

As Express has not 'marked' my answer and Dustin gave a different answer to me I did a google search on the first Americans in space.

I discover that it is a myth that the Thunderbirds Tracy sons were named after the first American in space.

Gordon was the sixth, not the fifth. Presumably Walter was not thought of as a good name for a puppet hero.

Who was the only player to have scored past Pat Jennings in his bare feet?

Scott Carpenter, Virgil Grissom, Alan Shepard, Gordon Cooper and John Glenn from the Mercury flights were the first Americans in space and Thunderbirds characters were named after them. I think I remember that Gerry Anderson wrote to them all sometime and sent them signed photos of the characters.

So Express, both Dustin and I are wrong.

Even after I admitted my mistake in believing in the Thunderbirds myth.

This page is also wrong This_is_the_wrong_answer

Only 2 lakes in the Lake District

Basenthwaite and a.n. other?

The rest are either -waters or -meres

That looks like a dodgy site to me. Much better to stick to a Thunderbirds website, much more entertaining. Moral, never ask a question from memory when others have access to Google. One nil to you both or is that two nil in total ?

It wasn't a matter of scoring points. I was beginning to wonder whether I was the only one who could see my posts.

I gave the thunderbirds answer at 17:41 yesterday, at 21:06 you were still giving clues, at 22:50 Dustin effectively says that I gave the wrong answer after which I conceded that I was in error. You then repeated my original answer this afternoon.

Therefore you can probably understand my confusion over my posts.

Express, - didn't notice your correct answer to the Lakes question in my haste to show off with the wrong response.
Wish I'd been more observant now :0(
