    Yes, yes! It's such a terrible strain but I know how you demand my presence on the boards. Why if it weren't for me there wouldn't be any posts to speak of on the Edmonton board :p

    Do you want their professions or their names or both?

    Ed: Uh, I won't be able to get this in on time. I don't have internet access where I'm going and I won't be back in time to get it in before the deadline. :(

    In advance here's my 4-line poem:

    New job sucks,
    don't get home til late.
    Missed the deadline,
    That's ****ing great! :mad: :p

    Yeah, that's bad, but I've been awake for 13 hours and driving for 12 so don't expect much. :p

    Names would suffice, but professions as well wouldn't hurt... :)

    And you still have 24 hours to get your answer in... although that is a nice poem...

    To be exiled from the forums,
    Just sticks in my throat.
    Got too busy to answer,
    Now I've missed the boat!

    Next game If I sign up,
    And my memory's not hazy,
    I'll endeavour to play more,
    `Cuz like Berx, I'm just lazy! :p

    Oh, yeah. Here's the poem I forgot to sent.

    Once again I didn't check the facts
    And got canned because of it.
    But it wasn't really so bad
    So I won't go have a fit.

    But I swear to God and Hell
    If liannb wins the game,
    I'm going to find that
    Really, really lame.


    :p

    Time limit now down to 24 HOURS between questions!!!

    Answer to Question 3: The three experts John Hammond called in to experience Jurassic Park before it opened to the public were Dr. Alan Grant (paleontologist), Dr. Ellie Sattler (paleobotanist) and Dr. Ian Malcolm (mathematical theorist). You could also make a case that his grandchildren Lex and Tim were also "experts", as they were the target audience... :)

    Obligtory joke answer:

    "The number of men saved is uncertain, but one thing we do know about the act of falling hundreds of feet into a large sheet of mesh is that it's a terrible strain."
