We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Just a reminder…

We will be off-line tomorrow whilst our server hamsters catch up on some unfinished business…

    Perry…are you entirely sure that is a suitable photograph for a Family Publication such as Samizdata?

    Oh tosh, no doubt merely my nasty suspicious mind. OTOH, they look to be enjoying themselves. :>))

    I just don’t want you leaving yourself open to charges of Hamstern Pr*n if PETA and the NSA should subpoena your computer….

    Oh well, whatever. I hope you and all the hamster-valets (and of course the hamsters) have a most satisfactory start to the New Year. 🙂

  • I write here from events (and practical experience) of some 58 to 60 years ago: (i) the gestation period for hamsters is 17 days (later learning adds that sexual maturity is some 4 to 5 weeks from birth); (ii) it takes only 2 to breed (with 50% probability on escapes of two of random sex); (iii) accordingly, if escapees get into the wainscotting of an old house, you are likely to be totally stuffed: with hamsters after a pretty short period.

    Take care to hunt them down ASAP.

    Best regards

    Hungover hamster sex. Let’s see how many people end up here after doing a Google search for “hungover hamster sex”.

  • I once saw a gerbil mount a hamster and attempt to bugger it. The gerbil was female and the hamster was male.

    I shouldn’t have said that. What happened in the School of Maths ought to stay there.
