Research? All you need is a good team!

I have now been a field operative for several months and still wonder how this community works ... or if anyone around here ever works ... or if 'work' is even a relevant concept at this place

Therefore I have become one of h2g2 guardian angels and the patron saint of fuzzy thinking. My responsibility as such is to help clear-thinking community members become more fuzzy-minded ... so if anyone really believes they understand something, I'll do everything i can to assist them in correcting that delusion ...

About Merdo the Grey:

Merdo the grey derives his name from a 1960's epithet that was bestowed on him after he was selected for the task of latrine maintenance at a hippy commune that will forever remain nameless.

His educational training dates from early pehistory in the areas of art, archaeology, social anthropology, and fuzzy thinking.

Although born and raised as an American (somewhere in the mid-west) he stopped practicing the American religion in the early nineteen-sixties and became a guru of the expatriot faith abroad.

Merdo the grey is now an agent of the Norwegian Government, working with minorities and immigrations issues and to a certain extent with graphic design and computer networks (trying to establish and maintain the intragallactic PAP (Psychotic applications protocol) network.

His sucess in this area has, however been rather dissapointing.

About Team Merdo:

My approach to the h2g2 research effort is simple enough ... rely on my superiors! I have, therefore, engaged one of my superiors as field research assistant (field ass., for short) who does most of the actual research work ... his name is Melvin ...

Melvin is very good at the "view from above" kind of research, but he, too relies on his superiors and has engaged one as an assistant field assistant (ass. field ass. for short) her name is Felicia...

Felicia is very good at arial research, too, with a particular knack for the rain-forest canopy sort of work. But it is her intellectual skills that are most impressive

Even then we have had some problems doing the sort of down-to-earth nitty-gritty kind of hands-on research h2g2 really needs, so the whole team engaged an "ass. ass. field ass." for the foot work: an incredibly gifted field worker in the area of rodent recycling. Her name is Willy, or more appropriately Villig... ...

Sooo ... here we all are, sitting around in the research lab onE Saturday morning, wondering how this incredible galactic research team could get even better ... And Villig suggested ... as her cutting mind usually does ... the only possible reasonablesolution to any difficult question ...Let's have some FISH!

So on Monday morning we hired a new Management team... for our field research unit ...

Ever since then, (about a year ago) we've become the most acute research unit at h2g2.
