Updated: A little quiz thing ...

Name a CD you own that no-one else on your friends list does

This should be easy, since my music tastes run to the weird and obscure.

Es Reiten Die Toten So Schnell - Sopor Aeturnus.

Name a book you own that no-one else on your friends list does

Ok, this is going to be tricky, since there are some serious bibliophiles out there.
Without being tricky and using fencing books or books in Chinese, how about :
Strike 1 : Islandia - Austin Tappan Wright. dmw is definitely a bibliophile.
(Edit: and dmw correctly guessed that I bought it (among a bunch of other books which attacked me in a dusty secondhand bookshop) because I used to play on the Islandia TinyMud (or was it a MUCK by then ?). Sometime around 1991-2ish, I guess ... )

Strike 2 : Voyage From Yesteryear - James P. Hogan.

Ok, this time for sure : Epee Fencing : a complete system - Imre Vass.

(like anyone will notice this edit after 5 days :-) )

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no-one else on your friends list does

Hmmm, also tricky, since so many of you are SF fans.
How about : Danger Mouse Saves the World ... Again

Name a place that you have visited that no-one else on your friends list has

This should be easier ... maybe.

Bettyhill (a town on the north coast of Scotland, about 20 miles west of Thurso).

I presume the idea is that if you've read the book/got the video/been to the place/got the CD, you should comment and I have to try to pick something even more obscure. Go for it.
