Randall, get out of my head! I'm imagining someone who gets a great big kick out of saying "Randall, get out of my head!" finding themselves a transplant recipient of one of Randall's corneas. And thus never able to say it again. /nothing against the "out of my head" comments, j...

Re: "More Accurate" Discussion

The technological hurdle is not the kill method. The hurdle is finding Sarah Connor in the first place. Drone killcraft haven't taken out OBL (that we know of) because even they can't find him. If Arnie can't find SC, it doesn't matter how strong he is or what weapons he has. But it's a cool comic a...

More importantly, where can you actually get wireless on a train?

Re: "Time Travel" Discussion

My boss once observed, "It is possible to travel through time, but only in one direction, and at a constant speed."

I'm not so sure, though. Yesterday I laid down on the couch and shut my eyes, and when I opened them a minute later I had traveled two hours into the future!

I do this trick all the time, but with a deck of cards. Give the deck to someone, get them to shuffle it up good, take it back, start pulling back the cards randomly and tell them to pick one, as soon as they pick a card, say "Ace of Spades" and pull it out. It almost always fails, of cou...

the second child will insist that one piece really is bigger than the other He may insist that, but what is his evidence to support that claim?

Re: "Sheeple" Discussion

See, now you're redefining "altruist" behind your back to mean "passive-aggressive manipulator who gets off on a false sense of moral superiority". I hardly consider that a fair definition. In fact, I would say that if your putative "altruist" is consciously planning t...

Re: "Voynich Manuscript" Discussion

One of the early owners of the Voynich Manuscript may have been an ancestor of mine. I base this tentative conclusion solely on similarity of names. But it's an unusual name so it'd be an odd coincidence if it weren't so. Not that it means anything really. Just a connection. I love connections. Nice...

A propos of nothing, I once had a job delivering pizzas and made frequent trips to a street contractor on the edge of town named Cutler Repaving.

I always read it as "Cutlery Paving" and decided they were the people who put the forks in the road.
