"History, Lister - is written by the winners. How do we know that Oates went out for this legendary walk? From the only surviving document - Scott's diary. And he's hardly likely to have written down, "February the 1st. Bludgeoned Oates to death while he slept, then scoffed him along with last packet of instant mash"! How's that going to look when he gets rescued, eh? No! Much better to say, "Oates made the supreme sacrifice" while you're dabbing up his gravy with the last piece of crusty bread."

I used to node here a lot. Nowadays my nodes are being disappeared more often than they are being written. Reasonable, since most of them are not particularly useful. E2 seems to be getting a bit too serious these days.

E2 is still a good read, I just seldom feel the need to contribute much any more.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
