All very interesting, but what's this got to do with the Beagle Project?

… is my latest catch-phrase. Feel free to use it yourself—particularly when conversations are beginning to lull/bore, are going off track, or are simply not about the Beagle Project. If used in blog post comments, make sure you provide a link back to the Beagle Project website, so that people will know what you're talking about. But don't do it too often, or the joke could start to wear a bit thin, and you might be mistaken for a spammer. It's quality that counts, not quantity. (Oh, and best not say it when people are actually talking about the Beagle Project, or they'll think you're a total wazzock.)

Has this meme got legs?

(Pass it on.)

Postscript: Actually, come to think of it, it would make a damn fine T-shirt.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
