  • Back to the Society of Classical Learning this morning. #

    Another unlurker, here.

    I am only wondering what would happen if a young person flying fron Sydney to LAX with some iocane powder in his luggage hit turbulence and crash landed on a strange island full of polar bears and pockets of magnetism…
