    for those days you need to move to avoid time out but really can't be bothered.

    On the surface, it sounds like it might work, TOS 3b not withstanding. But I'd be nervous that my helper monkey might actually make better moves than I would. Then he'd start demanding equal billing. I'd have to ask Russ to let me change my name to sbacat and Jojo. Or worse, Jojo and sbacat!

    And think of the complexities of the ratings system: timeouts with monkey help. Timeouts without monkey help. And you just know the page one clans would start arguing over whether you-know-who was rotating in the occasional orangutan.

    I'd have to say this is one path in the jungle we ought not to wander down.

    I'm pretty sure you're not an occasional orangutan. Your status is full-time, non-rotatable. (best kind!)
