How well do you know your fellow monks?

Earlier this year, proving that XP is just a number and certainly not a measure of Perl ability, my name found its way onto Saints in our Book. I think it's a fair bet that everyone on that list knows Perl better than I do. But I did look at a few monks' home nodes out of curiosity and I noticed a few things that looked strange or funny.

Disclaimers: My view of the world is warped, and your warp factor may differ from mine. The HTML table below appeared fine in my scratchpad, but my HTML is worse than my Perl. All links are subject to change. Bugs may be fixed. Only monks in Saints in our Book have been included. Only the very mildest of link obfuscation has been used - just putting your mouse over the link may give an answer away. Monks may not be telling the truth. The monks are listed in the order in which I noticed something that appealed to me.

Update: just got the point of the stuck number thanks to following a link on JediKaiti's home node. He who laughs last had to have it explained.

Update 2017-12-17: that exile has now been revoked. External link

    Fun, thanks.

    Borrowing your table settings, may I add you another monk?
