When I heard about the new book, "Sex on the Moon", it struck me how
arch-criminals steal very expensive items, to impress their
girlfriends by having sex on top. And I realized that we never really
know what Diabolik was going to do with all that gold. We can presume
that having sex was somehow involved. But how? Was it basically to
have a GOLDEN GROTTO to have sex in, which as it turned out was pretty
much what happened? :-)

Or maybe it was a Goldfinger-like, GOLD-PAINTED LOVERS situation?

There must be many more possibilities. What do *you* think?

I'm not averse to supposing Diabolik was looking for a golden
grotto. Come to it, as long as it was going to be a massive solid
gold grotto for the committing of sex acts --- that is, as long as
Diabolik had no interest in taking any gold away --- the nations of
the world were being slightly jerky in not letting him. I mean, the
point of a gold reserve is to have a gold reserve, and does it really
make much difference *where* it is as long as it's somewhere? Might
as well get somebody some nookie.

Also, I find that I'm less averse to Diabolik having sex than
I am most MST3K characters. There are people I definitely don't want
to deploy any organs whatsoever, and there are those I think could
usefully have them.

All I have to contribute is a carelessly-flung catchphrase:

Sex on the Moon. How did it get there?

I also want to thank you fellas for bringing this newsgroup back from
the edge of extinction. Keep 'em coming!

Now if we could just get someone like BEN FRANKLIN to say "How camest
thou there?" But maybe that sort of semi-creative anachronism
wouldn't be fair to Mr. Franklin....

I'm not saying *anything* here!

I think these kind of weighty questions are exactly why he keeps the
FEDERAL RESERVE on retainer!

Another puzzler: If Diabolik were to go to the considerable time and
expense to mint gold coins, and use them to buy a bed whose sheets
have INCREDIBLY HIGH THREAD COUNT, would that be allowed in his
oeuvre? Or would that be CHEATING?

Given the number of people he ruthlessly kills in his "capers", maybe
he serves some IMPORTANT EVOLUTIONARY ROLE! We can only imagine what
"Diabolik, Jr." would get up to, if that movie had ever been made....
