Kraken, In Herman Melville's 1851 novel Moby Dick (chapter 59) the crew of the Pequod encounter a "vast pulpy mass, furlongs in length". Starbuck calls it 'The great live squid, which, they say, few whale-ships ever beheld, and returned to their ports to tell of it.' Narrator Ishmael attributes this to Bishop Pontopiddan's "the great Kraken," and concludes: "By some naturalists who have vaguely heard rumors of the mysterious creature, here spoken of, it is included among the class of cuttle-fish, to which, indeed, in certain external respects it would seem to belong, but only as the Anak of the tribe.

Bumping this thread back up! :wink:

How intense will your sense of fear become once you are told to get the coronavirus vaccine?

Not very great, because I probably won't bother to get it. Don't think that we can be 'told to get it' here in the UK yet, but - who knows? - maybe that could happen.... 8O

Do you celebrate Christmas, and if so, in what way?

What is your philosophy of life?

Get through the next 24 hours....

Do you have a 'career', or have you ever had one?

I had what could or (for some people) might have been a 'career' from 1980-2000, in the world of education. I never really progressed, as you're supposed to do, as I never had any real focus or ability to make contacts. Got out before I had a complete mental implosion, and lived on savings and part-time jobs for another 17 years, before qualifying for a small pension from my former 'career', which enables me to live reasonably comfortably now.

Do you know anyone who's had the Covid 19 virus?

Have you ever used Windows 8 (or 8.1)?

Yes! Windows 8.1 has been my main operating system for nearly seven years, and it's awesome - far more straightforward and reliable than Win 10. I'll be very sorry when Microsoft stop supporting it in a couple of years time.

Do you subscribe to Netflix or any other streaming service?

This house does have a Netflix subscription. :lol:
And yet this house isn't the payer of said subscription.

So.. Yes, there's a subscription.
And no, we didn't really subscribed to it (we're not the account owner -- but the owner gave/share it to us)



Do you own a landline and regularly use it?

Hmmmm.....interesting remarks about your Netflix 'subscription' there!

I do have a landline, which is required for the functioning of my broadband internet service, but I only use it for telephone calls about twice a month.

What sort of television set do you have, if any?
