    Ubik42, what does your name stand for? Again, I am curious about people's user names on here.

    Ubik is the name of a book from sci-fi novelist Philip K. Dick. It's my favorite from his books. 42 is the answer to what is the meaning of life from Hitchikers guide to the galaxy. 42 is ubiquitous.

    Would you like the book Ubik? Well if you liked movies like The Matrix, the 13th floor, Inception, Dark City, then likely you will like that book. But its weirder, because Dick doesnt feel imprisoned by the need to make things tie up with neat explanations at the end.

    Interesting.  I never read too many books - maybe I'll give that one a try.  The last book I read had pictures in it every other page. That dates me a little bit.

    Yes, I believe Crazzzy Chess Playa is just jealous of his missing Diamond by his name, hence : No company ownership. 

    The only reason I'm not a diamond member is that the Crown looks much better and carries more prestige than a silly little diamond.

    Oh great.  Now I want the Crown, too.  I wonder if a person can pay double and get both alongside their name.

    Senpai (先輩) and kōhai (後輩) are terms applied to the mentor system in wide use in Japanese culture; often found at all levels of education, in sports clubs, businesses, and informal or social organizations. The relationship is an essential element of Japanese seniority-based status relationships, similar to the way that family and other relationships are decided based on age, in which even twins may be divided into elder and younger siblings. The senpai is roughly equivalent to the Western concept of a mentor, while kōhai is roughly equivalent to protégé, though they do not imply as strong a relationship as these words mean in the West. More simply, these may be translated as senior and junior, or as an eldercompared with someone younger in the family/company/organization; the terms are used more widely than a true mentor/protégé in the West and are applied to all members of one group that are senior (the senpai) to all the members of another group (the kōhai). There is usually no average separation in age between a senpai and his or her kōhai.

    If I wanted to read a wiki article on it, I would have done so.

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Actually, she is from staff here.

    hahaha I  think your image in post 21 needs to be wearing waterproof clothing and boots at the moment. Being in the uk I'm surrounded by floods, storms, more storms, hurricanes, 100 mile an hour wind, torrential rain, so i don't think the strappy shoes'd be much help at the mo Wink

    Kohai, since you are from the UK, is Hugh Grant your favorite actor?  Remember him?

    ScottRF!!  You should field that question, too, since you are extremely British.  No one likes Hollywood Hugh anymore in the UK?

    Hugh Grant ? no, he's a little too mumsy for my liking.

    I do like Gerard Butler though  :D
