Re: 0857: "Archimedes"

Don't count your chickens until you cut the red wire. The only things in life that are certain are death... and death. You're damned if you do, and slightly less damned if you don't. So don't. Punk. Absence makes the heart grow explodey. Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and I break your k...

Do you know the context of the original quote?

?

Oh... Actually, I was thinking of Johnny Carson, not The Shining. I see what you mean, though--the The Shining quote wouldn't need modification.

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to kick your ass... One fish, two fish, red fish, I'll rip the bones from your flesh. Heeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny's corpse! Time flies... or else. Frankly, Scarlett, you're a zombie. This one doesn't really fit. But it makes me chortle. "The...

Re: "Neutrality Schmeutrality" discussion

So, this announcement actually wouldn't produce the proper amount of mayhem. There would be no motivation to make any edits at all during the week.

Re: "Single Ladies" Discussion

As hilarious as this was... Gil-Galad throwing Sauron out of Lindon refers to the War between the Elves and Sauron. Sauron waged this war after the One Ring was created, in order to gain control of the Three Elvish Rings. Ergo, chronologically, the comic is very much incorrect. Not only that, Beyon...

Re: "Locke and Demosthenes" Discussion

IMO this essay is required reading about OSC / Ender's Game. Disclaimer: This is a cursory, first-glance response to the introduction. Not a considered reply to the essay as a whole. In setting up his thesis, the author says this: We are given to believe that the destruction Ender causes is not a r...
