Does he have a white cat with long fur that he strokes while he plots his world domination? I realise he has a white horse in his menage but I'd hate to try and sit that thing on my lap! I do like to have a visual picture of any evil madmen that might be in my area. Does he look like Odd Felt from James bond or the other guy with the bowler hat. Blow.... ooh I got their names muddled up how embarrassing...EEK!

No, more like a partially decayed body, like the crypt-keeper on the the HBO horror show of which I have forgotten the name. (Please note the correct usage of grammar in the previous sentence, it is so important if one wishes to seem refined.)

His cat is just a plain old diversionary Griffin.

Cat? CAT? Don't be daft. You've obviously not met my little doggies.

Here's 1 of them...


Here's another...


And 1 more for luck...


There are a few more, but I won't post pics of all of them. I think you should get the message.

Then it would not be wise for me to post the pictures you posted on this thread a while back, I guess.

If you are disclaiming any relations to these felines, then why does the title of the post include "Our," as well as also the sentence "We got him today.",  "This is Candy (our other cat).", and We had our pick of 4 kittens and chose..."

It just doesn't make the denial meaningful.

"Our" in the sense of he is part of the family (pfft!). "We got him" because Sandra & I went to collect him. "Our other..." in the same sense as my first reply. Etc, etc.

Someone help that man to the toilet.

I'm supposed to be working now but I'm doing the usual 'putting it off' stuff. This is the problem with being a freelancer, motivation is a tough thing. Another freelancer, my knight, Taff has joined the forum. Make sure you make him feel as welcome as you made me, in other words, declare war upon him, insult him and generally give him a hard time. He likes it. He'll probably toute for work for a while but it is only because he is passionate about what he does. I wish I had his enthusiasm. Got to write some advertising stuff for some make and take science I'm doing in the summer. Yawn! Like doing the workshops, hate the rest.

OK, Ok, you wish to carp about this. I shall thus redefine "We" to be used in the "royal" sense. If you, my good sir, wish to remain on the mentally deficient list, "We" will allow you to do so. May the goodness of the Ephemeral Powers show mercy on you for your decision.

Is Taff a nickname for your friend's daft personality? Or are you just dragging in the rubbish?

I thought you said that you were Welsh JimBob. Any man from Wales is called Taff once he steps foot in England. It is short for taffy. What does it mean in the US. See Doc, I knew he was pretending about his roots.

Probably not. Cambridge is a foremost seat of learning in subjects such as maths (Steven Hawking now holds the Lucasian Chair in mathematics - a position once held by none other than Newton himself), science, technology, law (James Tully), divinity, history, cosmology & astrophysics (Martin Rees), computing (John Daugman) and psychology (especially autism - Simon Baron-Cohen).

And, of course, young Chris is a lecturer there (as, once, was yours truly  [^] ).

Yes but Newton didn't think up some of his best stuff whilst AT Cambridge. Wasn't he kept away for a while because of the plague and having time on his hands he would go out into the countryside and think about all his many theories. Sometimes having time out from the rat race can be rewarding.
I didn't realise that stephen Hawking can only move his eyes and his cheek muscles now. He has to be everybody's hero.
