Vaguely interesting BBC Culture article leads you to believe that it's actually interesting.

I believe that could be better titled "The Christian Dior Dilemma".

Do you think there should have been a contrivance to pre-empt the Eagles question?

Sauron had all the Eagles on a no-fly list because of their radical terrorist inclinations to eat his minions.

Themed searches are a great inspiration.

What (or who) am I talking about (I don't even know half the time!) - you were giving a speech about Alzheimer's Club.

I can't remember the last time I laughed this hard - It's okay. I understand. Welcome to Alzheimer's Club.

when did you read lotr for the first time? - I read it when... wait, what did you ask?

Why is LOTR the best fantasy novel of our time? - No it isn't. I just finished reading this other fantasy novel that's much better, but I can't remember which one it was.

Who or what am I talking about (I don't even know myself half the time) 2 - as I said, you were giving a speech about Alzheimer's Club.

Its that time of year again - which one is it now? I forgot.

What time is it? - that time. Of the year. See? I actually remembered.

Hounds or other dogs? -Or, What if Huan had been a Chihuahua?
