You know what they say - 10 years in Bedlam is better than 10 days in denial (which, I believe, has crocodiles).

I'm pretty sure that calling a lady camel is an insult in most languages, unless it's a particularly attractive camel (toes notwithstanding).

after 900 and i don't know how many posts, you should really know by now that's not how it works : you have to supply the image, not just suggest it.

unless you are simply suggesting a *virtual* avatar, in which case you may consider it virtually adopted (you have to imagine what it looks like).

Here are the planned budget figure for the next 10 years. Yeah, it does resemble a random number table now that you mention it. (From the mid 1970s.)

Yeah, that all looks about right to me. It's "random number" appearance seems to me to be the usual way my budgets work out. I am outsourcing my accounting next year, Good Professor Wood. Please be sure to tender, as you seem suitably silly and quite up to the task of the complicated numerical physics involved. Also, I'm crap with numbers (especially number 2's).

Cheers,
Marc (pretty much every table of numbers looks random to me)

Okay! Today's the day! seventeen more posts and we can have 1000 on this thread alone. So let's get going and remember -- # 1000 goes to the Quen to announce which one she's gonna use.

(Nice little bit of pressurizing, there, eh, kid?)

When it happens, tell her I said "You are loved".

Marc, you'd also like Rowland Scherman's "Love Letters", an alphabet made of nude figures. Lovely. I want to buy a print.

In an interesting juxtaposition, he writes, "New York publishers were afraid that...the Z might offend someone."
