Why Oberon2001?

OK (takes deep breath), Oberon is a character in the play A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare and I'm an actor (ish) so it seemed appropriate. The 2001 part comes from the novel/film 2001:A Space Oddessy by Arthur C Clarke. Quite why I picked this reference might have something to do with the fact I was reading the novel at the time.
Coincidentally, Oberon is also the name of a moon which orbits Uranus1. Details of this great moon can be found at the NASA Website. Unfortunately, Titania is bigger than me.

I've had a great evening, though this wasn't it

Groucho Marx.
Anybody else think we should have a Groucho Marx smiley?

Top Five Edited Entries

I think I have enough entries to compile this list, so here goes -

  1. Tony Blair - a Profile - One of the first h2g2 entries that I wrote and on quite an important person. Very proud to have written it.
  2. The Marx Brothers - A fantastic collabrative entry to work on and one in which I learned a lot of new things about the Bros.
  3. Ways of Making a Good Cup of Tea - An epic collabrative entry. Great fun and found out new ways to make my morning cuppa.
  4. The Creation of the Space Shuttle - Written just after the Columbia accident, I'm surprised there wasn't an entry on it before.
  5. Yes Minister - the TV Series - Very funny show and working on the entry gave me new insight to it.

This researcher would like to apologise for the stale nature of this Personal Space, but, after a European Court of Human Rights ruling banning apologies on the grounds that they are a breach of a person's right to dignity, he can't.

My Specialist Subjects

  1. Comedy (yeah, it's true. I know a fair bit about comedy. Go on, test me - mostly UK stuff though)
  2. British Politics smiley - yawn
  3. British Law
  4. The Media Industry
