After reading the recent Q&A could a new title be Universal Towel Distributor?

The "Best Title in the Universe" has somehow dropped out of the Asterisk* Universe.

Does anyone know why?

makc is no longer welcome at the forum. There is nothing else I am inclined to say about it. Use your imagination.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Last time I looked, Chris had 7777 posts. That's something, isn't it?

If those seven lads seem strangely six-y (surely not sexy? :shock: :shock: :shock: ), then this picture shows us the seventh member.

Wonder which of Chris's sevens is a dog?

<<All Lucky 7s is a special Easter Egg status that appears only in Final Fantasy VII. It occurs when a character's HP lands on exactly 7,777, causing an in-battle message to say "All Lucky 7s". When this happens, the character begins rapidly attacking all enemies in the battle, with each of the 63 hits doing exactly 7,777 damage. The character cannot be controlled during this barrage of attacks. The character's name also begins to flash in the battle menu. Afterward, all subsequent attacks will always hit for 7,777 damage until the character's HP changes. After the battle ends, the character's HP falls to exactly 1, so that the effect cannot happen infinitely. >>

I've enjoyed a few Nevil Shute novels in the past. I can't believe I have never heard of the book or films "On The Beach". I also can't believe that I never knew the meaning of the navy term "on the beach". (Although the air force term "bought the farm" is better and darker.)

<<Nightingale (Luscinia; Ukrainian: соловейко; soloveiko). A small (approximately 14–17 cm long) Eurasian bird of the thrush family Turdidae, renowned for its singing ability. In Ukraine the western or southern nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos) is found primarily in the Crimea but also in Transcarpathia, Polisia, and the western regions of the forest-steppe; the eastern or common nightingale (Luscinia luscinia) is found throughout Ukraine; and the blue-throated nightingale (Luscinia svecica) is found everywhere except the Crimea, the Carpathian Mountains, and the steppe. The nightingale is commonly invoked in Ukrainian folk songs and folklore in the image of a creator of sweet sounds, a builder of homes, and a harbinger of spring. The word soloveiko is a term of personal endearment.>>
