There are many great researchers at GA, but I can't afford to ask each
of you a question. I ask the great PinkFreud because she has
enlightened and entertained me for 2 or 3 years now even though -- and
perhaps even because -- we come from different philosophical vantage

(She has recently described herself as a Christian Conservative, I do believe. 
Yet she has a superb sense of humour. ;-) )

So, Pink: if it's not too impertinent a question (and if it is, I'll
accept any answer you choose to give), what do you plan to do now? I
also welcome any comments from other GARs and GACs respecting the Pink
One or yourselves!

Some have suggested a purchase of GA, which I think is an excellent
idea! (Unfortunately I don't think I have the resources to hand

Let me also express here that I had previously thought (with a bit of
a wobble on the Chinese thing) that Gargantuel was a socially
responsible company, but this, this ... foul and distasteful murder of
GA annihilates that thought.

Hello, Thaumaturge (great username)!

Thanks for noticing me. I've noticed you, too. I bet you'd have made a
wonderful addition to the team here, if the game hadn't been
cancelled. Loved your comment about the cat running off with Hardy's
heart (hardy-har).

Regarding the matter of what comes next for me, I have nothing lined
up. Google Answers was my only source of income and very nearly my
only source of human companionship. Because my health is very dodgy, I
cannot work outside my home nor accept jobs with strict deadlines.
Google Answers was my dream job. The dream is over.

I know that this is not a very satisfying answer, but it is the truth.
Other online research projects involving GARs are apparently underway,
but I am not a part of them at this time.

To flesh out my response, here is a bit of verse:


Mourn not the dinosaur trapped in the mire
Nor the doomed moth, making friends with the fire,
Nor love-mad mayflies that mate, then expire:
One May,
One flight
To spend...
And an end.

But pity the kitty in futile travail,
Puss striving wildly to catch her own tail,
Fretful to grasp it, yet shamed should she fail:
And bite
And pain,
And night
And day again.


Best from

Apologies for going into a clarification loop but in addition to the
five stars it's obviously necessary to add five groans for the
'laurels and Hardy' bit!

<groan> <groan> <groan> <groan> <groan>

There you are.

Keystroke, yes I have signed the petition and shall also sign up for
the alumni group! Thanks for the tip.

Thanx for the five-groan salute! I have often been told that puns are
a childish form of wit, but I like to think that mine are full-groan.

thaumaturge-ga rated this answer:5 out of 5 stars and gave an additional tip of: $15.00

I think yours is the greatest username, I must say. (I only chose
thaumaturge because I like the word!)

Unfortunately I have come rather late to the GA party as an offical
user, but as I mentioned have been silently following for 2 or 3 years
now. So it seems to me as though the GARs and regular commenters are
friends although I have been invisible! Your ability to name any
obscure book or film has astounded me but greater still is your wit
and wisdom.

I do encourage you to participate in other research projects if you
can but it's also occurred to me that you would make a fantastic
blogger. One of my favourites is -- I
think you may enjoy it! I'm not sure how much money is to be made
thusly, but I belive that some revenue may be generated through ads.
(I am a complete stranger to Mr. Swift and this is not intended as a
mercenary plug.)

Siliconsamurai's suggestion is a good one too, but why stick at local
papers? GA has shown that everyone enjoys hearing your opinion! Think
'on-line syndicated column'....

Many thanks too for the Notes on the Animal Kingdom. We should enjoy
today's miseries and not focus on past ones, eh? ;-) Rather
Hardyesque! (Although I think he would say that we could do both.
Reading Hardy always cheers me up.)

Best of luck to you, the other GARs and the regular commenters. (What
*will* myoarin do when he returns from his hiatus? It seems that
commenting is verboten now.) I shall miss you all!


p.s. Has anyone else noticed that Kemlo has been absent over the same
period as Myoarin? I think perhaps people had the wrong secret
identity for him!

Pink, contact your local newspapers, perhaps a column?

Contact me if you want suggestions, I'm sure you can figure out an
email for me if you put your mind to it for a few (or 2) steps.

I'm not really nasty, I just don't suffer fools gladly and YOU are no fool.

Thank you very much for the five stars and the generous tip! And a
special thanks for the words of praise. I appreciate both the laurels
and the Hardy.
