Now I have to research Daredevil's "biomimetic sit".

Found this searching for stills from Hawk the Slayer.  I kinda dig the design.

"Noble shapes pass before our eyes. High language is held, and great wars are waged. Events of tremendous import roll on to their destined accomplishment. Golden processions move across the dim expanse of Chaos. Worlds are blown and broken like bubbles. There is concerted song, feasting, and gratulation; dire plots are hatched and blaze forth into light; will clashes with will; Heaven opens, and a torrent of flaming ruin is poured forth into the deep. The Victor, ensconced in his omnipotence, is fiercely triumphant; and in the dark below there is the dull gleam of unconquered pride, deadly courage, and immortal despair. But in the midst of all this vast rivalry of interests and jar of opposed systems, a cry is heard, like that muffled cry which caught Macbeth's ear as he nerved himself for his last fight. It is the cry of the human soul, left homeless and derelict in a universe where she is the only alien. For her the amaranth of the empyreal Heaven is as comfortless as the adamant.of Hell."

--W.A. Raleigh on the universe of Milton's Paradise Lost

Yeah. Milton clearly being one. I love the last line (amaranth/adamant... empyreal). And the possible allusion to an imperious, amaranth Catholic power (or do Protestant bishops wear amaranth too?), I mean, I know he's referencing Milton's line about the amaranth being transplanted to Eden, or whatever it was...

Partner is far more common in everyday English speech than it ever was in my UU back in the US. Talking about my wife feels a bit weird.

No, no, no. Now that you are entering the academic world professionally, it's called networking

Just for the record, Bobo was ready to share booze and fight back to back with Von to protect the rest of the liqour stock. Clock him with the bottle was a defensive action. Bobo is a peaceable monkey...
