    The dementia seems to be your affliction, pinhead. By the way, I thought you disapproved of name-calling.
    Actually I asked a question didn't call you a name Andy. You are the one still name calling as everyone can see. Stop making yourself look silly, or not up to you! 😉

    goad, you must be feeling left out as you have to involve yourself in a conversation going on between Andy and I. Do you feel he isn't doing so well in it? 😉

    Mary Ann Evans (22 November 1819 – 22 December 1880; alternatively Mary Anne or Marian), known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, poet, journalist, translator, and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era.

    My question would be why use the pen name George Elliot? Were male novelists more accepted in that era?

    More male privilege. Women were practically nobodies in the 19th century. The few who weren't stood out, and often got hammered down because of it.

    Well in fact I would estimate that the majority of Germans would know that...not that it is relevant
