Godlike (8/8)



  1. Hmmm... Ants, Beefolk, Scarabfolk, Murder Hornet, even Mr Pinchy. Reaper seem to be channelling Adrian Tchaikovsky. Dare we hope for a Mantis Assassin?
  2. Interesting to see how many contributors to this forum have worked out the most likely answer to the Fermi Paradox.
  3. Get ready for an argument about Q.61, ManvsMini 😉
  4. Achieving a "Best in show" award at a small painting competition which was voted for by members of the public.
  5. Jill Tweedie, my History teacher for my last 3 years of secondary school. Only 5'3", but fierce enough to keep any class in order. She didn't teach me mere facts. She taught me how to study, and then get what I had learnt down in a coherent form on paper. How to construct an argument so that you will convince your reader. (And thus how to demolish an opponents case.) This made me a complete pain in the behind to my other teachers as I practised showing up the fallacies in whatever they were teaching, But it won me several debating prizes in my last year, and a rapt audience whenever I got up to speak. I still miss this lad: And my wife was so cut up at his passing that she refuses to consider a replacement.
  6. Not locked down, just blacked out for 2 days by Storm Eunice.
  7. Douglas Adams, P.G. Wodehouse and Terry Pratchett. Oh and ManvsMini: You'd better lay in a good supply of food, Prince Otto is reputed to have had a gargantuan appetite.
