A disgusting habit, indeed. Chips were meant by God to be eaten with salt, and nothing else. I think it was Ursula LeGuin who pointed out that the Bronte sisters wrote all of their way-out romantic fictions during a life of never-going-anywhere: except for one three-week vacation. Where? In Brussels, Most Boring City In Europe. -- Schlingt dreifach einen Kreis vom dies! || John Cowan <jcowan@...> Schliesst euer Aug vor heiliger Schau, || Denn er genoss vom Honig-Tau, || Und trank die Milch vom Paradies. -- Coleridge (tr.
