O monstrous arrogance! Thou liest, thou thread,
thou thimble,
Thou yard, three-quarters, half-yard, quarter, nail!

Reading Shakespeare is somewhat akin to attempting to eat a bag of flour.

You (probably) frequently quote from Shakespeare's plays without even knowing that you're quoting him.
And the sonnets are amazing, as well.

Mind you, I say that as someone who loves language.

Probably. He's arguably the greatest wordsmith of all time, with a great influence upon the English language. I simply do not find his writing to be... palatable.

All the world's an adventure game, and we are just players. Some have their entrances and their exits and their stupid puzzles

I've always thought of the world as more of an MMO, actually.

I think it's definitely an action-adventure. I'd go with first-person shooter, but there aren't enough evil geniuses to go around.

Oxford's chapel?

You do realise that there are quite a few chapels in Oxford, right? Like... one in almost every college?

Best get started now, then. Call us when you've finished. We'll just stay here, torturing the thread.

I don't know his actual name. I believe he's known as "Spiderman", though I could be mistaken about that.
