    They band together, set up mobile operations bases and begin to mine and refine Tiberium.

    Consider hypocrisy, mental illness, bitterness, senility and loss.

    So happy that the self imposed new thread ban is still in force.

    "I want a job," said Archie.

    Mr. Wheeler consumed eight fried potatoes in quick succession. He was an able trencherman.

    "I always looked on you as one of our leading lilies of the field," he said. "Why this anxiety to toil and spin?"

    "Well, my wife, you know, seems to think it might put me one-up with the jolly old dad if I did something."

    "And you're not particular what you do, so long as it has the outer aspect of work?"

    "Anything in the world, laddie, anything in the world."

    So it occurred to you to copy paste some text? 😛

    I think of orchids for some reason. I ran into a plausible looking middle aged self-identifying botanist and researcher in West Papua when I lived there. He even had the safari jacket and hat.

    It was very unusual to meet fellow foreigners in the town where I was living (I was the only one at one point apart from a couple of elderly Dutch priests) so I helped him out a bit ~ sorted him out a place to stay, interpreted for him, and this and that.

    The day after he was supposed to have left, I heard he'd been arrested at the airport trying to smuggle a suitcase of rare and highly valuable orchids out of the province illegally. He was a poacher and not a scientist. I was never implicated for some reason.

    Not a story about lilies of the field, I know, but this is what occurs to me when I consider them.

    Not even Solomon in all his glory did that, as far as we know. 😵
