Re: Chit-chat

Here's wishing every one a happy season: hope you are all where you want to be, with who you want to be with and doing whatever you enjoy. Most of all I hope everyone is well.

Re: Chit-chat

I start with three apologies: 
1.  firstly for answering my own comment.
2. in case this has been discussed before.
3.  I didn't really know where to put it.

But I have just had one of those blinding flashes of inspiration, or rather a gestalt moment of revelation! In fact in the context, maybe that should be a Damascus Road experience... 
Possibly I am the only person on this forum, possibly in the fandom, maybe of all Sherlockians who did not already know this:
I have ONLY just discovered why the Diogenes club has that name!
In my defence, I knew the story of the individual, but didn't recall his name...

Re: Chit-chat

It's OK. I doubt everyone knows that, and I didn't know right away either until a professor mentioned Diogenes in a class.
Diogenes is a fitting name for a club attended by a cynical person like Mycroft.

Re: Chit-chat

Spill it, ladies. Why is it a fitting name? There must have been more cynical people around since Diogenes. All I know about him is that he was living in a barrel and went looking for humans with a lantern in broad daylight.

Re: Chit-chat

I think the 'alone in a barrel', is all you need!

Re: Chit-chat

I hadn't heard about the part about the barrel before. Only that he was a famous cynic. But that makes even more sense for a gentleman's club, now that I know that.

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

My mum found this cartoon in the paper this morning and put it on our fridge.
