0101: "Laser Scope"

Title text: I wish I'd missed you then so I wouldn't be missing you now.

This reminds me of the definition of love by the droid, HK-47. The quote is: "Definition: 'Love' is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope. Statement: This definition, I am told, is subject to interpretation. Obviously, love is a matter of odds. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and fewer would derive love from it. Yet for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticle, and together, achieving a singular purpose, against statistically long odds."

(Who cares if its old, it didn't have a discussion thread)

The internet removes the two biggest aids in detecting sarcasm:
1)The tone of voice
2)the assumption that the other person is sane

Don't know much about KOTOR, but "HK-47" sounds an awful lot like the name of a product from Heckler and Koch, which would be appropriate for an assassin droid.

Its the perfect blend of Heckler and Koch and the AK-47!
