Ask Kosh

Ask Kosh is one of the few pages that has survived the many revisions to my site over the years. It dates from about 1997. It uses a very simple randomizer script, giving a magic 8-ball kind of response to the questions you pose. Kosh was a character from the TV show Babylon 5 who always spoke very cryptically. So take a trip back in time, to when having a black background for your web page was really cool.

You have questions, and Kosh has the answers, but are you wise enough to understand him? Remember that Kosh is quite reclusive – click on him first to see if he’s feeling talkative. Even if he is, you might not get a friendly answer.


I’ve collected all the Koshisms used in Ask Kosh into a single .zip file, which I’m happy to share with other Kosh fans. It also contains several additional samples that are not used in Ask Kosh.
