Have you any idea the damage those things are causing to the planet? They should all be shot IMO.

Damage? It is not damage that they cause, but instead it is complete chaos. They stop us from ever fulfilling our future evil plans with there cutesy little wings flapping about all malicious like. So shooting's too good for 'em. Burn 'em. Burn their habitats. Burn their eggs. Burn the caterpillars. That'll learn 'em.

I have narrowed the location of your evil lair to some traditional part of the British Empire, based upon that statement.

Even if it is true about your narrowed range, that would still be a large area to search. If you do manage to find me I'll buy you a beer. Although I can't vouch for the same such civilised behaviour (with a 'u' of course) from my minions so you'd better bring some minion repellent with you just in case.

You haven't convinced me.

Some inhabitants of the North American colonies took up speaking and writing American. Some inhabitants of territories which have never formed part of the Empire learned English rather than American.

I think you are on a very sticky wicket with this one.

Or, old chap, the whole thing might just be an elaborate ruse to throw the bloodhounds off the scent of the fox.

An' speakin' th' Queen's English ain't so difficult now. Is it, gov?

So, y'all, whadda ya think of it now? It's a mighty good 'un of a conundrum now, innit?

Confucius say: man with one chopstick go hungry.

Have a clue now you don't: say Yoda.

If I may make a maths-quibble, the chaos is built into the system in question; the "malicious flapping" of which you speak is merely one of innumerable sources of miniscule perturbations which make such systems long-term unpredictable, that is, which cause them to reveal their inherently uncooperative and obstreperous natures.

Now, as whether the butterflies' wing-flapping is one of most *annoying* sources of such perturbations and as such deserving of a species-level global pogrom, well, that we can discuss.

Hehe, I posted that before I moved into my lair. So that is fine if I did post my previous location somewhere on this board.

There are still a few more than that to guess from. But I would caution against using old information as a basis for your searching expeditions, it may lead to enjoying yourselves too much and falling for the pretty girls (or guys, or whatever it is you fall for) in the foreign countries you visit.
