How the mighty have fallen
« on: 04/05/2008 17:46:10 »
It is with the deepest regret that I inform this group of friends that one of our members has fallen to one of the lowest levels of professional conduct. Our beloved rodent has become a company shill for a PHARMACEUTICAL company!

Has he no shame? Have times become so difficult for this beloved member that he must pander to the public for morsels of birch trees? Should we set up a charitable fund for him? This picture is just pitiful. The pandering, the false look of pleading and flowers? - FLOWERS? Has he no shame?




Please, we need to unite around our friend and help our own out of his mis-guided venture. Either mental counseling or a fund to help him get tender trees into his lodge are called for. Our expression of care and loving-kindness will also do him a world of good. Please - all of you - help use turn our beloved Beaver back into the trusted, loving person he once was.

He has sold his soul. We MUST act!

Look at this video at around 2:30mins the beaver puts in an appearance. He must be really short of money to sink this low.

To make things worse, he was named as an adolescents imaginary planet on Doctor Who. The boy wanred a planet called 'Castor 36.' I'm too innocent to understand what 36 was all about. Any clues anyone?

Anyone who knows anything about astronomy could answer that. It's a planetary designation - the 36th planet of the star Castor.

Quote from: wiki
Castor and Pollux are the two "heavenly twin" stars that give the constellation Gemini (meaning "twins" in Latin) its name. The name Castor is traditionally thought by some people to carry the meaning "Beaver", after the generic name of the beaver. Actually the name Castor refers specifically to Castor, one of the twin sons of Zeus and Leda. The star also has the Arabic name Al-Ras al-Taum al-Muqadim, which literally means "The Head of the Foremost Twin". The Chinese recognized Castor as Yin, which is, according to the Chinese, one of the two fundamental principles upon which all things depend.

Did everybody already know this and am I making a tw** of myself?

In any case, it's not crayon. I was playing with GIMP.

Strange, really, as Havoc is a Viking word and would not have been in use in Julius Caesar's day.

Shakespeare's plays weren't exactly original. The audience of the Elizibethan Age didn't want original plays, they wanted to see almost exact copies of older plays. there was a play made long before Julius Ceaser called "The Tragicall History of Romeus and Juliet." So maybe the Havoc was used when the play was made, but wasn't updated by Shakespeare.

What proof do you have that Shakespeare didn't update his History plays. Informing the Elizabethans of their historical past as he informed and commented on the contemporary world around him.
As do Harold Pinter and Ayckbourn do now.
