Just to "live long and prosper". (Not doing too well on the second part!)

Hard to say, but Ripon has a chance as a woman I know used to live there and I got her to marry me.

What about you?

Probably the Smithsonian museums in Washington. My wife had to drag me out of there the couple of times we've been.

It's a tossup beween Brough of Birsay off Orkney Mainland and Jarlshof on Shetland, which I visited with Humanist friends hosted by AlanC.

Folks, this is such a good question that I am creating a thread for it. I hope no one minds.

So here's a new question.

What is your worst travel memory?
Carpe diem. Savour every moment.

Honestly haven't got one. Pathetic I know,but presume that when you start forgetting things that includes bad things.

What would you like to do today that is different to what is planned.

Almost anything (even household chores!) but have to go to Tescos. Roll on the day when the new, nearby, Asda is built.

What is your favourite shop and why?

I am not a shopper really. My favorite shop is any well priced coffee shop where I can get a decent sandwich and the lighting is good enough to enjoy reading. A sheltered patio in the summer would take it over the top!

I'm lucky to have never been in an accident (phew) but had surgery a couple of times at short notice which is a bit crappy if you don't know you're gonna be intact when they bring you out. Again luckily mostly in one piece with the aid of modern engineering.
Worked with young people in clubs, pretty much in my youth and that could get interesting, confiscating a baseball bat with nails driven into it.

Could you imagine yourself breaking the law, or a situation when you might find it appropriate to bend it a little? Civil action, sit ins, that kind of thing; or worse if you want.

If Thundril or Jaywhat (or both) kill Assad, what would you advise them to do next?

Move to Homs - you would be a hero there and they would look after you and protect you?

How would you deflate an inflated ego?

I think the best chance of deflating an egotist would be to get to know if there was some fear or gripe behind the bombast and try to get them to relate to it

What is the point of assassinating a dictator and thereby risking your own life if you then hide away and let chaos result from your action?
