Default Note

I had to move from one part of my residence to another (much better) part a couple of days ago. This is the main reason I've been so quiet the last couple of weeks (though it doesn't go back farther than that... there are other excuses I could go through, of course).

As a result, I have no net access at the moment. It should be back in a couple of days, at which point I'll hopefully have finished the long-overdue update I've been working on.

You must have a fun desk. The IN box, the OUT box, and the EXCUSE box.

I thought it was IN, OUT and SOON.

I've been wrong before, though. I can deal.

If it was that way, he'd be confused all the time, because the Glossary clearly states that "soon" means "not soon" and hence, vice versa, "not soon" means "not 'not soon'" and the nots cancel out.

mudshark: You know, I think that might be it.

Brings to mind:

Golgafrincham Captain (upon realizing that the B Ark of useless middlemen was sent off into space first): I'm sure that there was a reason.
Ford: You're all a load of useless bloody loonies!
Captain: Yes! That was the reason!

Okay, so it's not an EXACT reference, but that's what was brought to mind. Let me compare it to a quote I once wrote for a fiver-like MST of a Yu-gi-oh episode:

Yugi: Why do I think that this isn't gonna end well?
Yami: You're smarter than the average lima bean?
Yugi: That might be it.

As If! (basically Five-Minute Yu-gi-oh)

Possibly. Nobody saw me, so I may or may not have actually done it.

So...You demand clearly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty?

@Z: You did and you didn't in simultaneous superposition, surely? In which case, you're nicked.

Werner Heisenberg is stopped after speeding. The cop walks up to his car and says "Sir, do you know how fast you were going?" Heisenberg smiles and says "No, but I know exactly where I am."

In the same vein:

Quantum stuff is fun, as long as you don't need to do anything formally.

Maybe it's from a different version? I'm not sure that part of the story was in any other versions, but DA has been known to change the story ever so slightly for every version, so that quotes aren't quite correct anymore.

^ In fact, I knew what Nate was talking about, but I wasn't actually quoting anything or anyone. That was just me replying (as me) to your question above, and was not intended as a reference to anything else.

My "Was what a Golgafrinchan Captain quote?" was merely a response to Nate's habitual (compulsive?) practice of trying to twist even the most simple and direct utterances into something entirely other than what was intended by the utterer.
