Sir Geoffrey James Warnock (1923–1995) was a philosopher and Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University. Before his knighthood (in the 1986 New Year's Honours List) he was commonly known as G. J. Warnock.

He was educated at Winchester College. Warnock then served with the Irish Guards until 1945, before entering New College with a classics scholarship. He was elected to a Fellowship at Magdalen College, Oxford in 1949. After spending three years at Brasenose College, he returned to Magdalen as a Fellow and tutor in philosophy. In 1970, he was elected to Principal of Hertford College, Oxford, where there is now a society and student house named after him. He was also the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford from 1981 to 1985.

Warnock married Mary Warnock, a philosophy fellow of St Hugh's College, Oxford and later Baroness Warnock, in 1949. They had two sons and three daughters. He retired to live near Marlborough in 1988 and died in 1995.

In popular culture

The mainly Cambridge University educated Monty Python lampooned Warnock and Cartesian scepticism and its axiom "I think therefore I am" in a sketch in the Monty Python papperbok. Sending up also the genre device of genius detective and less intellectually accomplished subordinate , to Inspector Descartes' exasperation, Sergeant Warnock utters the line "I think he's guilty therefore he is" .

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
