III. Concerning the Life Cycle (prematurely terminated) of the Common House Fly
The flies must be eradicated prior to the arrival of Ackroyd. He is coming, and we can't let him know, either about the presence of the flies or the system we have devised to wipe them off the face of the earth. If we don't want Ackroyd and RF to join forces against us, we need to prevent the fly intelligence from leaking out of the group. Here he comes! No, no, it's just the wind.
A. The question of whether, given the option of a close-by suicide or a farther-away ceiling light, the majority of flies will choose the suicide
B. Whether the presence of three live computer screens has any effect on the fly migrations

I. Concerning the Value of Short Hair on Newfoundland Toes
SM: Have I mentioned that my daughter was a salutatorian?
AK: What does that have to do with Newfoundland toes?
SM: What's a Newfoundland?
AK: Who let you into this manifesto?
D: [Can we overlook these petty differences and get on with the explosive stuff?]
SM: Did you hear something?
AK: No. Now, naturally we're not really talking about Newfoundland toes here, we're discussing the Chinese question, but since we're still under the first heading it will be necessary to refer to the discussion in Newfoundland terms. So, if it's helpful to you, a Newfoundland is a large black excessively hairy canine with a taste for everything (but that, too, is another category).
SM: A dog?
AK: In a word, yes.
SM: Well, if Newfoundlands had short hair on their toes, wouldn't we have more to fear from a winter offensive?
AK: Precisely, because they wouldn't have to stop so frequently to suck the ice balls out from between their toes.
D: [What kind of firepower are we talking here?]
SM: What kind of firepower are we talking here?
AK: Mainly just slobber and big feet.

B. Stated Purpose
a. searching for whole.
Trout would seem to somehow be implicated, and naturally Trout Fishing in America Shorty is on hand to explain the connection. While it is not Manifest Destiny in it's absolute form which animates the journey, it is a variant, or possibly an insane Aunt. Marla Maples?
