    Joking aside, as I mentioned in the other thread I named my Cube 'Rubiks'. Not just a random association, as I also like solving Rubiks cubes. However, I can't think of a suitable name for the Ribble 883.

    I have thought about '19' as 8+8+3=19, but it doesn't sound right.

    Any suggestions?
    Perhaps you will fid some inspiration in the points below

    1. 883 (pronounced otto otto tre) - no longer existing Italian rock band
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/883_(band)
    2. something from your area of expertise: 883 is the id of a gene aptly named kynurenine aminotransferase
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/883
    3. Iron 883 is a 2018 Harley-Davidson model.

    4. if 19 doesn't sound right, what about 192 (8x8x3)
    5. What about Ribble => "Riddle"

    For that very reason, let us just keep riding separate ways. LOL

    ... and I still remember you're planning to slash my tyres or nick them and sell them to Nick.

    I'd replace the word 'intelligent' with 'google search wizard level 70'

    Don't get me going on this one. All the idiots who pay a fortune for a designer 'breed' as a fashion statement/status symbol and wonder why there is no pedigree certificate. Its not a breed FFS its a mongrel!!! However it is still probably preferable to the rise in Pugs, French Bulldogs and similar 'cute' breeds with all the breathing problems they come with. I wish people would engage their brains sometimes. We have one f****wit with a Frenchie who insists it has a cold and can't understand why I can't/won't treat it as such. No you f***ing moron its face is so squashed it can't breathe properly. They don't want to hear that they've bought a deformed dog which will potentially cost them shed loads to fix. Grrrrr....

    I feel better for that rant.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.
