The Plot Thickens . . .

Last seen on the Kessel run, swinging past Io with its crew mostly incapacitated and its electrical systems frying in the radiation belts, but still hoping to unload its string on the Jovian metallic hydrogen smelting plants . . .

That you, of all people, are posting these interspersed with serious post about space travel is making me giggle far too much.

Pleased to hear it! But . . . 'of all people'? Must work harder to lose the elbow-on-the-knee knuckle-to-the-forehead 'Deep Thinker' reputation . . . Also, I have a short attention span, I mean many different interests, y'know.

Oh, don't worry, I just meant it was amusing to see The Sunday Sport being posted here. It just wasn't expected. You don't need to unpick the elbow patches from your tweed jacket yet.

I too suffer from 'many varied intersts'. But its a problem I feel I can deal with...

Those are genuine elbow patches, covering holes worn in the tweed by too much time at the keyboard (or at least, at the desk, cradling my head in my hands). How about the Meerschaum pipe? Is that safe too?

The meerscaum is okay as long as its smoked ironically(However thats accomplished), but the patches must be reattached with safty-pins for the punk-professor look.

You can keep the bow-tie, too.
