Well it was a stupid question!

And if he can't be bothered to spell "Australian" correctly (FOG) why should I give a more detailed answer?

Actually, I think Captain Oblivious is more appropriate.

Heath Ledger died of an Overdose from having taken a lot of different medicines/drugs such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine last year.

Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

The world is full of Captains Oblivii[sp?].  They are the majority.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

lol @ Oblivii, that's the first time i've seen that word, I like it. I've been completely oblivious to it until now.

Though i'm not sure it is a word :P

LeeE was grammatically incorrect anyway. He pluralised "Captain" so "Oblivious" should not also have been pluralised.

Lol - I wasn't sure, but I figured that as the Captains pleural would be oblivious to different things, pluralising both seemed appropriate.

Why would the lining of his chest cavity come into the conversation?

Part of the chest lining is called the "pleura." What a very, very reaching pun - in order to make that connection this rodent needed to reach always the Lake District for that one.

I didn't have to reach that far as LeeE put "pleural" in his post.

LeeE was grammatically incorrect anyway. He pluralised "Captain" so "Oblivious" should not also have been pluralised.

(really pedantic FOG)

What LeeE was very sensibly trying to do was give the concept of Captain Oblivious a scientific flavour by using the taxonomic system, that is,  Captain is the genus and the species oblivii. What he should not have done of course is capitalise the species.(turbo FOG and smug) [^]
