Ugly is in the idea of the beholder. To us lagooners I am considered a
real hunk.

If that is ugly, I would enjoy being ugly

Re: help me

I do too. When I walk around I wear a big cloak so as to not scare the kids.

Yes, the kiddies stare at me for some reason. Children find me fascinating. It must be my honest expression. See post #249.

Hmmm... By now I have enough evidence to "accuse" you of being a Time Lord.

A Time Lord. It seems you're not a fan of British TV shows.

Re: help me

Monty Python's Flying Circus?
Isn't it the show from where the name of the Programming language "Python"'s name has been derived?
Is it still running?

Re: help me

Hi;

Monty Python's Flying Circus is still being shown but I do not think it is still running.
I do not know whether they used that to derive the name for python.

Re: help me

I didn't go shopping. Just did not feel like it. Too many people in the store probably.

No, I never went. People here tend to shop on Saturday so I go any other day.

Re: help me

Hmm..
I got that number theory book.

It is surely a great "Recreation", but would it help?

Re: help me

Very good, you are a clever fellow.

Do not be fooled by the term recreational. Those are very serious problems.

Take a look at it, if you do not like it I will try to find another.
