R Daneel Olivaw, who appeared in "Caves of Steel" (set in the same universe but predating the Foundation books) exists through the entire "future history", often in a central role. And it's implied that he was an unnoticed observer of much that occurred in books where he isn't explicitly mentioned.

It would be very easy to have any random character actually be Olivaw throughout the series, thus allowing him to act as an omniscient narrator supplying relevant information to the viewer without interrupting the stories themselves.

Why is it I never have Mod points when I really, really want one?

You're exactly, 100% right. I'd only add that the sentence would have to 90 days at a country club stuff. Start the bidding at two years less a day at one of those institutions where "shank" isn't a cut of meat.

Excellent comment.

I'm not one of those people who believe Remembrance Day should be used as a back door way to glorify current wars. It is, however, about remembering soldiers who gave their lives to help make Canada into a real country rather than just an overseas extension of Great Britain. We only give them one day. They shouldn't have to share it with greed-driven marketers and sheeple who care about nothing but their next new toy.

Here in Canada, November 11 is called "Remembrance Day". It's the one day of the year when we pay special attention to those who fell in service of our country.

So thanks anyway, Communist China. But shove your slimy promotions of your second-rate trash sideways up your ass.
