    I don't think I can keep this up much more ;-)


    That's OK we can't keep it up for much longer either in that windswept desolated moor.

    And welcome back ;)

    Posted By: nickthesafeReal enough :-) not a spambot.

    Yeah, well that's exactly what a spambot would say...let's try and dig deeper:


    You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on it's back. The tortoise lays on it's back, it's belly baking in the hot sun, beating it's legs trying to turn it'self over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?

    Maybe the tortoise isn't real? Desert, baking sun - not exactly somewhere you're gonna meet a tortoise?
    Pass.

    meh. I can't quite figure if you folks are being incredibly paranoid or just plain awkward ;-)
    Oh and the handle comes from my profession...safe cracker, hence; nickthesafe. And before any wise arse remarks, I've heard them all before. And no I don't 'work nights'.

    Ah, we weren't really testing if you were a replicant/bot. We were actually testing your level of geekyness*, and you failed.

    However, your answer is genuinely worrying. And you do get tortoises in the desert.

    I'm pleased to say I used to be a terrible geek - but i am much better now, if a little obsessive compulsive as a residual side effect ;-)

    I'm trying not to see it, for it can't be unseen, whatever it is.
