But how can you tell if you've annoyed an elf?
You wake up and it's 100 years into the future...and your grown-up grandchildren seem vaguely familiar.

Probably best not to annoy them then. Having said that of course it'd be 70 years past the end of the End Times so you might get the last laugh.

October 2005: Re-constructed Iron Age House at Bostadh Beach at the north end of the island of Great Bernera (Outer Hebrides). A storm in 1993 had cut away the sand dunes and exposed stone structures beneath. Excavations revealed these to be of Viking origin but below the Norse level were Pictish 'jelly-baby' or 'figure-of-eight' houses (post 500 BC). The original plan was to give the re-constructed house a turf roof, but apparently the summer of 1998 was exceptionally wet and the cut turves rotted before they could be cured - so the roof was thatched instead. It was real cosy inside and commanded a fantastic view of the beach.
