Wow. I just saw a report of a 2500 mile diameter diamond found. Now, to some this is unimportant, but for a few gamers out there that I used to hang with - it is pretty darn cool. You see, once a character of mine created a huge diamond the size of a moon, gave it intelligence, named if Lucy, and made it my 'familiar' (as in a Wizard's familiar). This was in a RuneQuest game way back in 1986 or so. Gay was the DM, and the players were Lee, Chuck, Gary, Bruce, Sharon, Alvin and I. Good times with good friends.

But how wierd is it that now they have found Lucy in another star system, and they even know her name! I wonder where the Newt is?
