What is your typical day like? Surely it cannot be filled with tracking down the esoterica of the hobby? Do you pause to walk the hounds? Open a bottle of wine? Shoot poachers from the balcony?

Inquiring minds ( or at least mine) want to know.

I'm sure his minions do all that for him…how else would he keep his hollowed out extinct volcano secret base secret?

Stroking a pet and cackling while your minions put lasers on sharks takes longer than you might expect.

Your all wrong. Tango is the living embodiment of the internet.

Dwindling Gravitas Inactive Member17 Mar 2017 3:23 p.m. PST

Tango does all of that and much, much more …

You are aware that Armand is a trans-dimensional being…?

Hmmm – worthy of a poll?

Tango is the lawnmower man?

You know the old 'Most Interesting Man' I am sure it was Tango.

More internet = less figure painting.

All that is Classified … Tango is an enigma wrapped in a riddle, etc. …

Pretty sure Tango is an AI bot experiment Bill cooked up to post what he wouldn't dare post as the Editor.

But seriously, I don't enjoy all of anybody's posts here, but Tango is a good contributor.

Though the possibility he's an AI continues to intrigue.

It was inevitable, given the increasing complexity of the system, that the internet would eventually become self-aware, i.e., the first purely digital sentient being, as predicted by writer Orson Scott Card in 1985. His attempts to convince us that he is a real person are unconvincing . . .

You know those old legends or stories of a wandering immortal? Well, now you know.

Colossus: The Forbin Project (a.k.a. Tango)

Stop picking on Tango01! The up slope on the far side of the uncanny valley is very steep.

I <3 Hello Kitty, too!

I support you Tyrell … er … Armand!

I figured out who Tango really is about a year ago.

Nonetheless, I am happy for him to remain an "enigma' while he continues provides an outstanding service to TMPers, for which I am grateful.

Thanks for your kindly words my friend (smile)

A mystery indeed!… (smile)
