A Firesign Chat


||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 5:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for August 24, 2006 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood leads Firebroiled inside, makes a note of the time (8:34 AM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
Firebroiled: Yet now, as inevitable as dawn, the Sun, arching on its axis, rises to meet the East -- chariot-racing across the high noon desert sky, only to plummit, like bald Icarus, into the sensual, fermenting seas of the South Pacific. And even now, yet, as scary night decends upon us, we could appreciate the Wonders of Nature as stimulating as Man’s Own Triumphs! Let us pause . . .
||||||||| Firebroiled leaves at 8:35 AM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
||||||||| Catherwood leads SPORTLOVER75 into the room, accepts three dimes as a gratuity, mumbles something about 11:37 AM, then departs.
||||||||| It's 11:50 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| SPORTLOVER75 - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "7:01 PM and late as usual, it's Tweeny, just back from Texas."
Tweeny: Who's movie _is_ this, anyway?
||||||||| Tweeny departs at 7:02 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 8:45 PM and Mudhead steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
Mudhead: Not the dreaded fiddlers....
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 8:52 PM, dragging ah,clem by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this bozo?"
ah,clem: hi Mud
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern, Dear Friends'
Mudhead: hi ah, clem
Mudhead: ok, ah, clem its 9pm est
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, August 24, 2006 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"
Mudhead: someone slap Catherwood
||||||||| Catherwood rushes over to Mudhead and inquires "Typing my name just to rile me, eh?"
Mudhead: of course
Mudhead: ahem ah, clem?
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood intones: "9:02 PM and late as usual, it's Dexter Fong, just back from New York."
Mudhead: ah Dex
Dexter Fong: Hey Muddie
||||||||| Reebus-K-Tweenus sashays in at 9:02 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and snorts derisively "Announcing 'cease', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:02 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
Dexter Fong: Hiya Clem
Reebus-K-Tweenus: I'm going to jump into the biggest hole anybody's every seen...

Reebus-K-Tweenus: They're trying to convince the matire'd to come out of hiding?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Nope. Way beyond the age, although the way things are going they may be drafting 52-year-olds before long...
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and announces "Announcing 'Bambi', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:04 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...

Dexter Fong: Hey Pooper

Mudhead: damn, i've got it right here

Reebus-K-Tweenus: Hard to ignore the ease of "impulse buying" with iTunes handy.

Bambi: or at least Dear Friends Two
Bambi smiles

Dexter Fong: Perhaps Dear Friends, #2
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Saw that Klok. Amazing for a diesel.

Hemlock Stones: not so sure about that Tween, a JCB isnt stable even at 20 mph
Dexter Fong: I just wanna know if the demotion of pluto is gonna fuck up my horoscope
llanwydd: Correct me if I'm wrong but did I hear a report that there was a planet further and larger than pluto?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: If you don't believe that Pluto is a planet, then the terrarists have won.
principalpoop: Is Disney going to sue to keep Pluto a planet?
klokwkdoggerel: AMERICA will NEVER let FOREIGNERS steal the only planet we've managed to discover
principalpoop: 3 of them llan

Hemlock Stones: Dex, Pluto rules all hidden things so how will you ever know if its more hidden than ever ?
principalpoop: they had to do something, maintain control
Reebus-K-Tweenus: JCB, Stones?

Dexter Fong: Disney Stock took a big hit after the demotion of Pluto
klokwkdoggerel: Tweeny -- don't worry, they are all understudies and will only go on stage if Pluto gets sick
llanwydd: they should have given holst the last word when he composed "Neptune"
klokwkdoggerel: Gosh, they are following AOL and Sony on the way down?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: They've laid off like 20% of the workforce. Closing plants. Their salvation seems to be a joint venture w/Nissan & Renault.

Hemlock Stones: jupiter exports more heat than it receives i hear
principalpoop: I need a new toaster
Bambi: yes, Pluto, Ceres and 2003 UB313/Xena now dwarf planets .... No, Virginia, Pluto is not a planet ... so where does that leave Charon?

Hemlock Stones: and what about Sharons sister Tracy, Bambi ?

principalpoop: oops, I thought they were ebooks for ipod
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood announces: "9:37 PM and late as usual, it's Jerry, just back from Massachusetts."

klokwkdoggerel: ...although al quaeda is doing pretty good growing opium in afghanistan
Jerry: no oil - poppies
principalpoop: thank klok
Hemlock Stones: the dark side of mercury is even colder than pluto isnt it ?
Dexter Fong: Counterfeit
klokwkdoggerel: Jerry -- absolute zero is 10 for zero this season, so it would be a long shot at the betting shop
Jerry: no way
llanwydd: well there can't be an absolute zero because you have to transfer energy to something to measure it's temperature
Bunnyboy: I just ordered Fred's book from Amazon.
principalpoop: that is a horrible rumor stones, not true at all
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Good for you Bun :-)
Bunnyboy: And JUST FOLKS, PINK HOTEL and TIREBITER FOLLIES from Lodestone, via Amazon.
Jerry: pluto had to go 18% the size of earth
principalpoop: ok I counted, she only has 2 feits
Hemlock Stones: when i was last there it was pretty cold PP but i didnt check the bright side of course
cease: good for you, bunny
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Excellent. I only have one of those...
llanwydd: how much does fred's book cost?
Dexter Fong: Poop: Don't forget to carry the bum
klokwkdoggerel: didn't you know that the dark side of mercury connects to the dark side of pluto? proved years ago
Jerry: and don't get me started on charon
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Your firstborn male child, of course...
principalpoop: charon share alike
llanwydd: connects, klok? how so?
Bunnyboy: I have JUST FOLKS on vinyl, but I imagine the vinyl disc they used to master the Lodestone release is in better shape than mine.
Bambi: spaceweather.com also says: IMPACT MOON: In only 30 hours of observing, astronomers at the Marshall Space Flight Center have recently photographed seven explosions of light on the Moon. Each one, they believe, was caused by a meteoroid falling from the sky and hitting the ground.
Reebus-K-Tweenus: I dated charon once.
klokwkdoggerel: anyone homesteading on Charon has to fill out their own paperwork and pay the fee themselves. No NGOs are allowed to stake settlers, Jerry
principalpoop: I have enough trouble carrying my bum dex
Mudhead: they spotted my fireworks?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Armageddon, here we come, eh Bam?
principalpoop: I dated her sister, leslie
cease: is this just folks?
Bunnyboy: I have a bit of PINK HOTEL on an olde cassette, recorded offa KUOW (public radio, Seattle), many moons ago.
llanwydd: bambi, I always wondered if anybody had ever seen anything hit the moon
klokwkdoggerel: I hate to say this Bambi, but that's the way The War of the Worlds starts out...
klokwkdoggerel: and you KNOW what happened to Grover's Mill that time...
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Yeah, but her brother Hammond objected.
Dexter Fong: Cat: No, but they interpolated parts of this Mut 'n Smut into Just Folks
Reebus-K-Tweenus: I _love_ Pink Hotel.
principalpoop: armageddon, is that between hellmouth and duckburg?
Bunnyboy: And TIREBITER FOLLIES was recorded either the day before or after I saw the show on Whidbey Island.
Bambi: yeah, that's what was so funny when I read it Klok
Jerry: the moon is one giant crater face must have had a bad high school experience
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Wow Bun...

Reebus-K-Tweenus: THay was Reverend Leroy.
Reebus-K-Tweenus: That lol
Dexter Fong: Cat: I believe you're right, this is an Hour Hour show
klokwkdoggerel: Dang, Jerry, where did you go to school. Everybody knows that the moon was our defense outpost in the 5th age. It took all the hits, well, most of them for Earth
cease: new mexican overdrive and the other one
principalpoop: ahh yes, a friend of lawrence snake
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Lodestone, LL
llanwydd: thanks
Reebus-K-Tweenus: You still can't get the CNI radio feed, right LL?
Bunnyboy: llan: The PINK HOTEL section of PINK HOTEL is kind of a precursor (dammit! Oh, I said that before...) to EAT OR BE EATEN.
klokwkdoggerel: You know we towed the Moon back from the asteroid belt after our solar system base there was blown up by the Arkons, right?
Dexter Fong: Poop: Didn't he pitch for the Pimp's softball team?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Yeah, also Giant Rat.
Bambi: I wonder if the moon in thousands of years could still be considered a planet when it reaches out far enough to be influenced by the sun more than the earth's gravitational pull ... they say has been moving further out a miniscule amount each year.
principalpoop: why sure he did
llanwydd: interesting bunny. does it ellucidate EOBE or explain it further?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Lot's of good stuuf. My fave is the soap opera send-up "Over The Edge".
cease: indeed, bun
klokwkdoggerel: i don't think it will matter to us when it happens, Bambi
Jerry: Moon was whelped from the earth
cease: they (at least bergman) were way into games in those days
Jerry: remarkable similar chemical structure
cease: maybe bambi
Dexter Fong: Tween: My favorite is "By the Light of the silvery..."
Bunnyboy: cat: Tirebiter show - yes, I think we confirmed that, some time ago. We hadn't met, in person, at that time.
cease: dex, you have all my mushroom shows, right?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Or so we believe, Jerry. I still believe it's from Wisconsin.
cease: indeed, bun
klokwkdoggerel: that's not what the Sumerians say, Jerry
principalpoop: no more moon, the tides can finally relax
Dexter Fong: Cat: Nope..not a one
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Yeah, Dex. The precursor to Giant Rat.
Jerry: ergo green cheese
cease: speaking of coal ttranes
cease: ill have to do somethinbg about that, dex
klokwkdoggerel: friggin' Mars has a similar chemical structure
llanwydd: I've heard of "Live From the Magic Mushroom" but I don't think I've heard any of them
cease: cni has played them, but not often enough
Dexter Fong: Tween: A great burst of puns of the word port that cracks up the 4 or 5 theyselves
Bunnyboy: llan: If memory serves, the Player in PINK HOTEL was either Austin or Ossman, rather than Bergman.
cease: by the light of the silvery and exorcism in your dialy life are msurhoom shows
llanwydd: any port in the storm
Reebus-K-Tweenus: I've got my firewall log up. Amazing who's trying to getinto my computer since I logged onto the chat.
Jerry: no more surface metals that have oxidized and it rain hydrocholic acid
Bambi: LOL, yes, I think you are right Klok ...
Bunnyboy: And either Austin or Ossman was the Output Voice of The Game.
cease: life in the day is the precursor for dwarf and the tv stuff in 2 places
klokwkdoggerel: I was in a coke dispute in the express line at Stop 'n' Shop tonight
Bunnyboy: Much more descriptive, sorta like an audio version of ZORK.
cease: my fave is A Shadow Falls Over the Land, their most serious play
principalpoop: just probing tween, bend over

TOR Hershman: Goat Dude

Jerry: one thing i don't understand if there are no cars in macinack island why is there a bridge
TOR Hershman: Ewe should'nt be sheepish to tell us that

Reebus-K-Tweenus: "I suddenly realized that I was hiding from a nuclear weapon under a wooden desk" lol

Reebus-K-Tweenus: LOL Klok
klokwkdoggerel: form letters are being printed up and stockpiled to send to all the Boy Scouts
Reebus-K-Tweenus: But you're here...
klokwkdoggerel: Two, Tweeny. Two
principalpoop: was that the rocket or stuff going on in the capsule?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: You don't want to count the elevator boy?
klokwkdoggerel: well, they're working on an elevator, but still need better materials for the cable
principalpoop: ceramics, or plastic or nanite paper, hell I don't know
klokwkdoggerel: also on a Heim modulator, to completely eliminate the transport problem, but that is a physics and materials problem
principalpoop: start building those carbon fibers and get that elevator going
Reebus-K-Tweenus: The engines... adjustable jet turrets, if you can call them that. Impressive, to be sure.
Reebus-K-Tweenus: They's talking about how Orion will be more appropriate from re-entry from long distances.
principalpoop: how long to get to mars?
klokwkdoggerel: ought to be aerospikes, Tweeny
klokwkdoggerel: about 380 days, isn't it Poop?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Depends on whether or not you play in David Bowie's band ;-)
principalpoop: I don't recall
Reebus-K-Tweenus: You've seen 2010? Aerobraking?
principalpoop: orbits and epinodes and equinoxes and all that stuff
klokwkdoggerel: used on the rover missions, Tweeny
Reebus-K-Tweenus: 2010's a real favorite. Not superior acting, but a great story.
klokwkdoggerel: watch the landing video up at the site. Look for "Twelve Minutes of Hell" with sound; it'll knock your socks off
Reebus-K-Tweenus: They blew up balloons to stop the rover?
||||||||| It's 11:50 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| porgie - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Reebus-K-Tweenus: They found the tapes? I thought NASA has lost the tapes of the moon landing.
klokwkdoggerel: supersonic parachute, Tweeny, supersonic parachute, after the main fireworks subsided
principalpoop: rover was amazing, I spent more than few hours looking at nothing on mars lol
klokwkdoggerel: I use the picture of the smashed heat shield as screen background; Opportunity found it on its way South
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Ah, Rover, not the lunar rover.
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Yeah, amazing what those little robots did.
klokwkdoggerel: NASA has the tapes the way the gov't in Raiders has the Ark of the Covenant
principalpoop: the time delay, for giving instructions, I would lose my patience lol
klokwkdoggerel: still doing, Tweeny, still doing: http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/home/
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Be kinda funny if aliens found the rovers and thought that's what we look like.
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Also a good movie.
principalpoop: instead of meat?
klokwkdoggerel: I'd give anything to have a matter transporter so I could put a coke bottle in the sand just over the next hill Opportunity is going over
Reebus-K-Tweenus: lol, there's a point to be made there...
Reebus-K-Tweenus: It's A Cookbook!!!!
principalpoop: lol
klokwkdoggerel: running gag in The Simpsons Halloween episodes
principalpoop: beer bottle klok
Reebus-K-Tweenus: FST should manufacture Bear Whizz Beer just for the heck of it.
Reebus-K-Tweenus: From a microbrewery, good quality.
klokwkdoggerel: good Mars picture on APOD yesterday: http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap060823.html
principalpoop: yes, get some micro=brewery to make a special run
klokwkdoggerel: that one based on evidence from orbit, not the Rovers
klokwkdoggerel: they are setting up network routing and IP assignments for offplanet space vehicles now
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Great that the rovers are still working. Nobody expected it.
principalpoop: super cool
principalpoop: they will start building the ISS again too, I love watching that
klokwkdoggerel: somebody was re-creating ancient Egyptian beer. turns out beer making has advanced appreciably since then
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Now, if we could just raise the minimum wage ;-)
klokwkdoggerel: kind of like chocolate since the Aztecs
Reebus-K-Tweenus: www.universallivingwage.org
principalpoop: they talk like two neighbors working on a car lol
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Who invented the vacation...
klokwkdoggerel: Poop -- what a useless pile of crap and sink for money that is essentially patronage from gov't
klokwkdoggerel: well, we're all going to fuse into radioactive slag unless we invade Iran, so get ready
principalpoop: I disagree, it is peaceful use and employs lots and lots very smart people
Reebus-K-Tweenus: The ULW for Austin for a 1 bdrm apt is about $15/hr. Expensive place to live, but not like Cal.
Reebus-K-Tweenus: unless?
klokwkdoggerel: Josh Marshall is on vacation at TPM, and Matt I. says that every time he fills in for him, it seems like the Iran thing goes to hell in a handcart, so here's hoping Josh is back quick...
Reebus-K-Tweenus: They'd be toast in 2 minutes. Israel.
principalpoop: they only will have 1, where are they going to use it?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Quite. Iran as a "suicide country"?
klokwkdoggerel: Tweeny -- you have to distinguish between reality and BUSH reality
principalpoop: we have to test ours, to be sure all the parts are working ok
principalpoop: they only get 1 chance
klokwkdoggerel: same argument re Iraq in 2003, you see how well rationality works; you can't reason with a man with a shotgun in his hand
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Well, remember, all those people rotting in the Astrodome were better off, because they were living in poverty anyway (Barbara Bush).
principalpoop: ahhh ok, oops, I thought you were serious, 70% of people watch fox news, I try to be diplomatic
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Those folks are out in la la land. I pity the next President who has to clean up the mess.
principalpoop: that 70% number is scary
Reebus-K-Tweenus: http://www.brillig.com/debt_clock/
klokwkdoggerel: TPM had a link to a Cato report on the continuing bogus-alarmist "intelligence" on Iran going back to the early '90s
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Year and 1/2 now w/o TV. Broadband & DVDs only.
klokwkdoggerel: TPM also had a link to a PDF report from a Senate committe that showed how far Iranian rockets could reach...but the center of the range circles was in Kuwait
principalpoop: there is a large jewish population in Iran, they have co-existed without problems for a long time
klokwkdoggerel: and the biggest circle was for a rocket that doesn't exist
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Bush is on a Blues Brothers mission from God. He wants to remake the Middle East as his legacy.
klokwkdoggerel: Poop -- no, most of them are gone now; it got too hot for them. Not being very Zionist, they have trouble living in Israel, and not being very Muslim, trouble living anywhere else in the Mideast
principalpoop: the rockets red glare comes from the war of 1812, do we even have any rockets in our weaponry, all guided missiles now I thought
principalpoop: as of when? I read that recently from an Iranian professor here in the usa....
klokwkdoggerel: It's unfortunate that so many Jews were driven out of Iraq and Iran, since they formed a very diverse element of the culture there. The Bahais have also been persecuted in Iran.
Reebus-K-Tweenus: I love Victor Borge's quote: "Yes, I know a little Turkish. Get along..."
klokwkdoggerel: Reminds me of Indonesia, where they purged all the "Chinese", who were really Indonesians for genrations and none of whom spoke Chinese
Reebus-K-Tweenus: It's a mess...
klokwkdoggerel: Poop -- lots of rockets. See fas.org
klokwkdoggerel: Zunis, for example
principalpoop: I liked the recent onion, how faith in god helps the hezbullah and israels and lebanese cope
klokwkdoggerel: Sometimes, you just want to make some noise and keep peoples' heads down
klokwkdoggerel: Using $4M per shot precision guided munitions is NOT the way to do that
Reebus-K-Tweenus: We've had a Mexican district on part of South Congress Ave here for years now. They're putting up new condos, and yuppie places. I suspect that'll all go away soon.
principalpoop: I looked, they sent 10,000 and killed 18 people, the rockets only carry 7kg of explosive, some fireworks rockets are bigger
Reebus-K-Tweenus: How about the Onion "I feel like I'm the only person gentrifyling this place"... lol
principalpoop: but yes fireworks are deadly and scary aimed at towns and farms
klokwkdoggerel: Poop -- I saw some pictures of cars shredded by Katyusha, not pretty
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Conjugate the verb, to gentrify...
principalpoop: sure, they are dangerous and fucked up to aim them at civiilans
klokwkdoggerel: Russian Katyushas were fired from "Stalin Organs", 40-tube launchers mounted on US-supplied Studebaker trucks
Reebus-K-Tweenus: So, we're all signing up for the UN peacekeeping force?
principalpoop: I am, blue helmet and hash, cool
klokwkdoggerel: You get about 20 of those trucks all firing at once onto a battlefield and it's pretty scary. Was for the Germans, anyway
principalpoop: but I will not tell the israelis where I am lol
klokwkdoggerel: Shooting just one Katyusha at a time is not very effective
Reebus-K-Tweenus: From what I've read, the "backward" Soviets had some pretty impressive firepower.
principalpoop: it is a terrorist attack rather than a military bombardment
klokwkdoggerel: As they say, "Quantity has a quality all its own"
principalpoop: sure
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Didn't know until recently that their tanks were superior to Panzers (our Pershings were dubbed "purple heart boxes")
klokwkdoggerel: Poop -- the attack did its job
Reebus-K-Tweenus: The Lebanese people didn't deserve what happened.
klokwkdoggerel: Tweeny -- T-34 no match for Tiger and some other German tanks, but again, there were lots and lots and lots of T-34s and a diminishing number of replacements for the Germans
principalpoop: the lebanese government should not allow that
klokwkdoggerel: there was also this matter of the Sturmavik, on which the A-10 Warthog was modeled
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Their infrastructure is gone, from what I've heard on Democracy Now.
principalpoop: just like the new palestian government must put leashes on its attack dogs
klokwkdoggerel: It was essentially immune to ground fire and could shred tanks
Reebus-K-Tweenus: The "Flying Tank"
klokwkdoggerel: Yep
Reebus-K-Tweenus: I'd rather be on the Enterprise ;-)
principalpoop: for making patton, the pershing tanks looked too small and silly, they used panzers for our tanks and new tanks for panzers lol
principalpoop: or something along those lines lol
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Figures lol
klokwkdoggerel: at Kursk, the guys flew Sturmaviks all day and the gals flew old 2-engine biplane bombers all night. the Germans were under constant attack
klokwkdoggerel: US tanks were poorly protected and not very well-made. But again, we had lots of them
Reebus-K-Tweenus: It was wonderful to see GC Scott go from Strangelove to Patton.
klokwkdoggerel: German tanks were complex, kept breaking down. Kelly's Heroes is very accurate in that respect
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Yeah. The "Witches". Flew at night and dropped hand grenades to keep the Nazis awake.
principalpoop: a new age movie
Dexter Fong: It says "I'm back"
klokwkdoggerel: WB
klokwkdoggerel: happy car park
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Rita was kind, I take it?
principalpoop: ahh wb fong, I was waiting to say good night, I have to take care of my brothers toe, he has been waiting lol everybody have a super week
Dexter Fong: Rita takes...Rita gives....eh?
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Well, we've solved the Middle east peoblem since you've been gone. Rations of has to both sides.
||||||||| "Hey principalpoop!" ... principalpoop turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 12:16 AM, I don't have to go yet!"...
klokwkdoggerel: looking at what the Tamil Tigers are now doing to the Sri Lankan Navy with "swarm tactics" using suicide boats, I'm not sure the Enterprise would be a good choice. Really big target
Dexter Fong: Don't get toed away poop
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Bye P
klokwkdoggerel: nite P
Reebus-K-Tweenus: That's yet another issue. The Indian Ocean both near India and the East coast of Africa.
klokwkdoggerel: well, with that, I, too have to fade
Dexter Fong: Night Klok; Keep 'em armed and rolling
Reebus-K-Tweenus: Well Dex, you're back just in time for the great exit. Have a great week, guy.
klokwkdoggerel: good article somewhere about Sri Lankan thing and suicide bomber culture. Not promising -- many of the Tamil suiciders are...Catholics
klokwkdoggerel: yeah, nite, nite
||||||||| At 12:18 AM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Reebus-K-Tweenus!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
||||||||| Catherwood says "12:18 AM, time for SOMEONE to leave!", grabs klokwkdoggerel by the collar and gives 'em the old bum's rush out the door
Dexter Fong: This way to the egress ladies and gentlemen and children of all ages
||||||||| "Hey Bambi!" ... Bambi turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 12:19 AM, I don't have to go yet!"...
Dexter Fong: Well, it's just me and Bambi going gray
Dexter Fong sings "Silver threads among the gold....
Dexter Fong: I guess I'll go away
||||||||| It's 12:30 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dexter Fong - dead from the yaws
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood enters, and announces to all and sundry "It's 5:32 AM, time to change the log file and clean out unused rooms; please exit the chat room for a minute or two. Thank you for your patience."
