bet six Barbary horses and drink for free!

If I had Keanu's email, this is the sort of thing that I would definitely forward to him.

In the duel with Laertes in the final scene of Hamlet, when Horatio says “You will lose, my lord”, Hamlet replies: “I shall win at the odds”.

But what are the odds?

The Odds Against Hamlet is an interesting article at the Times Literary Supplement where that complex question is asked and while it may not be conclusively answered, it sure explains why we don't have a Shakespearean-themed resort here in Vegas.....yet.

Why did I ever think I was the only person here who read the TLS (work-related!)... Great fun article! I love Hamlet, and now of course can only imagine Our Man in the title role...*siiiggghhh* Think it's time to read it again...

Thanks for sharing, krix! How do you get this stuff?!

I like his role in "Much Ado About Nothing",he's the vilian you love to hate :-)

But if I had keanu's email, I'd want to ask him whether or not he thinks William Shakespeare is a real person or just a pen name.

Nudel, you're not the only one, in my other life, my field of work is literature and I just love all things WS! Tho I must say, Krix, my bet would be a casket of Claret and all the King's horses!
