Does anyone know if Nick Sutter's problem 'The Beast With Two Backs' is V10 with a sit down start, or just a stand up??

Cheers!

On a side note...

Shakespeare used it in Othello, 1604:

Iago:
"I am one, sir, that comes to tell you your daughter and the Moor are now making the beast with two
backs."

hihi... nice reference. Subtle. But I can see that you have one thing in mind Mr Nic Sutter.

"Used" it?

So Shakespeare pinched it off Nick Sutter?

Just me, knitpicking again..

Unless Nick Sutter is way old and born before 1604 then I think not.

I hear he's a spring chicken so he can't be that old!

Not a lot, he was always an alpinist first and foremost:

Well could I curse away a winter's night,
Though standing naked on a mountain top,
Where biting cold would never let grass grow,
And think it but a minute spent in sport.
King Henry VI, Act III, Scene II

Ah yes, what's in a name....
I was wondering how many people would get that reference, very astute there P.K. So, tell me about you.....!!!

Just to straighten out the facts, Shakespeare did not take it from me. In fact the current theory is that Shakespeare didn't write any of his plays but some other noblemen of his time did, can't remember his name though. Anyway, he did'nt take it off me either!

I think there was a climbing related question way back... 'The Beast With Two Backs' is a stand start , richb, but there was a depart assis in the works that would make it a bit harder. Great problem, one of my best, if I do say so myself! Still unrepeated I believe....many are called, few are chosen..!

the name you are probably looking in tems of writing Shakespeares works is Christopher Marlowe.

Have a read of this and I feel you'll change your mind:

And from Othello too.

Well, I never. Who would have thought one little question about a 'depart assis' would create such a stir. I've boned up on my Shakespeare, indulged in a little conspiracy theory, learnt some french AND got some beta. Phew.

Thanks all.

Gee, I always thought 'The Beast With Two Backs' was a reference to Nic himself, if this shot is anything to go by...




So there you go PK. If your hot date doesn't work out (that must be pretty soon?) and with Nic flirting with you online... how could you resist a body like that?

Simey, if this is Mr Sutter, then I can see how you might have been mistaken. Maybe he was looking
in the mirror whilst flexing his muscles!! And hence the inspiration for the name.

>So there you go PK. If your hot date doesn't work out (that must be pretty soon?) and with Nic flirting

As for my 'hot date' well that's another story to be told on another thread for another time!!

>Nick Sutter wrote:

Well, I really don't like Shakespeare that much ... Give me a man who reads Bertrand Russell
; ) now there was a thinker!

I am but a climbing pleb... how 'bout one of these fine hardcore lasses??

¡Sí, el es una máquina!

Though, flexing your muscles will only attract guys not girls.
