…a chip on his shoulder?

I recently read Tony Blair’s autobiography. It’s an interesting enough read, but right now it seems worth highlighting a particular passage:

During the IOC preliminary visit to London to assess our bid, Buckingham Palace put on a dinner for the assessment team, whose chief I sat next to. It was only in the course of talking with her that I realised London’s bid had to be about them, not us; or more accurately what we could do to advance the ethos, the spirit, the inner emotions of the Olympic movement, rather than being simply about London, infrastructure, and so on. The IOC were a curious mixture of athletes, business people, royals and the general great and good; but whatever their origins, they were immensely sensitive to the charges that the whole thing had become commercialised and had lost touch with its inner self. They wanted the Olympics to mean something again, a higher and better thing, not just a great moneymaking celebrity fest.

I wonder how their immensely sensitive souls are coping with the nonsense about the Olympic chip monopoly?

90s nostalgia
My phone now makes modem noises when an email arrives. This makes me unreasonably happy.

Taxonomogrammatical query
So is the class of birds unusually full of verbs, or are other taxa comparably grammatically equipped?

Evil genius

It turns out you're an evil genius. So:

What is your objective?

What is your plan?

Who are your minions?

Who is your adversary?

What is the fatal flaw in your plan?

How will you end up?

Also...

I'll show those fools at the institute!
