    Hmmm, is there a Maori equivalent of Quisling?

    And could I borrow your time machine when you aren't using it?

  2. I had my say some time ago about sexism in gaming (girls shouldn't wear pink fluffy headsets if they want to be taken seriously) but when I discovered that authoress Jennifer Egan, the self-publicist instigator of the "Everyday Sexism" movement, was an alumna of my old college I almost returned my degree and asked for my money back.

    Almost, because my MA only cost two guineas - at a time when they didn't allow women to study there.

  3. This thread demonstrates why I don't ride buses any more. Apparently I have the kind of mien that attracts "care in the community" types who want to sit down besides me and tell me when, how long and what colour their first bowel movement of the day was.

    And then there's the crazy lady who exudes the funny, fishy smell, who sits behind me and tuts at everything and runs over everybody's feet with her shopping trolley when she struggles off, complaining that the bus used to stop much closer to the shops.

    Plus the retired corpulently balding gent who is still wearing the fair isle sleeveless sweater his mother bought him the Christmas before she died, just after the Queen's 25th Jubilee, and who insists on telling the asbo-flaunting posse that they shouldn't be putting their feet on the seats.

    Then there are the two furtive straggly-bearded semi-anorexics up at the front discussing something incomprehensible in broken English, because they are inextricably linked by being illegal immigrants from countries on different continents which speak completely different languages.

    Inter alia.
