Dictionary Definition : Rodent - Homo Rodentiensis is a typical LC creature. Always ready to laugh about stupidity, this being has long occupied a special moderator status on the LC. As one of the very few LC creatures who actually can get and keep a partner, she is the object of constant envy. Though madness is not part of the average Rodents characteristics, this particular feature can at times be subject to change, especially when striken by severe sleep deprivation.

Okay, the deal is, you answer the question above you and post a new question. The topics can be anything that stay within the PG 13 guidelines. It is better if you ask questions that have answers that are easily found.
By PG 13 I mean no "adult" questions. lol!

Here is the first question to get things going.

Who is the author/creator of James Bond (007)?

for a bonus

What was the first James Bond book?

The Rubik's Cube is a mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 [1] by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik

To answer Medusa's question, which I just saw Embarassed I found this in wikianswers

No one person or organization created the intenet. Instead it grew organically from it's humble beginings to what it is today.

Initially a group of computer scientists created a system of comunication that allowed computers to talk to one another over the phone lines. This project was funded by the military in order to create a centralized data collection system that would allow information to be quickly stored in one place in case of attack.

One can spot "Laura," by the fun she has grading papers and drinking coffee, with triple coffee consumption ever since she quit smoking. Like another species, Homo Sapiens Zarasahanous, she enjoys picking at the extreme Twilight fans. This specimen is particularly fond of procrastinating, as most of the other species of the Literary Cabinet Universe are.

What is the definition of the word 'yarak'?

(I think this is still as difficult to find as it was when I first learned the word, so here's a hint: I like learning about falconry).
