I like looking up symptoms on the internet. Itchy foot? Leprosy. Pain in armpit? Plague. Fingers turn black? Frostbite, or possibly a leaky pen.

That is favourite game, speaking as a neurotic generation.

Tim, we must have a psychic connection. I am currently reading a science fiction novel ("Blindsight") which features an alien spaceship which calls itself "Rorschach". The humans who have been communicating with it decide that it is really a "chinese room". (Referring to the thought experiment by philosopher John Serle concerning the nature of intelligence.) OK, so it's not chinese whispers, but close enough.

Then, one of the human characters actually has several (deliberately placed) distinct personalities in her head, which obviously ties in with your third picture "multiple personalities".

I am not 100% sure if Freud has been mentioned yet, but it's possible.

I didn't invite you into my head, so ask before you come in next time!

Thank heavens. I was wondering whose head I had got into this time. This clears everything up...
