Subject: The things you learn

Last night, I learnt that if a lightning bolt is headed directly for you, there is a glowing red cross visible at its end, a bit like looking up the shaft of a Phillips screwdriver that's dabbed its tip in some paint.

Yes, I saw such a cross, but had time to (just) jump aside.

It's weird what comes up in dreams.

Is it just me, or does anyone else consider a writing style in which paragraphs commonly extend for several pages to be one that is unnecessarily opaque?

I see sbisson has beaten me to it, but it's worth noting that today is the last day for that documentary of Tackleford Metropolitan Borough, home of Shelley Winters, Amy, Ryan and Desmond the Fish Man. (The latter's origin never did get properly explained, AFAIK.)

Yes, Scay Go Round has come to an end.

Kudos to John Allison for winding up a comic and moving onto new things, rather than stretching a success so far it becomes boring.
