There's a shop not far from here which, three years ago, was selling these for ten quid a go.
That's nearly fifteen of your American-type dollars.

The one I want is Larry Niven's "variable sword". A monomolecular thread with a bead on the end, held in a stasis field. Slices through anything cleanly, can be extended up to several meters.

Perfect for tiling, woodwork, brickwork, plumbing...just about everything.

Oh, and can I borrow your medbay (Niven's autodoc) to put fingers back on, please?

It really belongs on radio, where it started. It came out just before my 16th birthday and one or two friends and I were instant fans.
I had to explain to our son that I had to wait years before hearing it again - though I had the LP it wasn't the same.

~I'm proud to say that three of our four would shred the costume, and any human silly enough to try to put them in it. Chlorine - well, she's just daft.

Near us there's a carpet shop "WELLIINGTON CARPETS"

I've never been in there because I just know I'd have to mention in and they'd either be cross because they already knew, or cross because they didn't know. So I just drive past it from time to time.

Definitely Seuss. When I was a kid we only had The Cat In The Hat and, I think, The Cat In The Hat Comes Back.
When we had kids we made sure we had the lot - it's one of the things that shaped both their senses of humour.

Son and I were swapping lines while we were at work today.
"You are so mercifully free of the ravages of intellect."
"You say the nicest things, master"!
"I know. I'm sorry."

I had to explain Subscriber Trunk Dialling to him.

That's fine if you can take caffeine. Me - I'm more than happy with it, by if by accident I give the other half my coffee instead of hers she spends the rest of the day falling over. De-caff has its place.
