Nabby: (save for later)
lily: he loved her

DJTweeny: biopic?
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Concurrent incarnation is being in two places at once, isn't it?

Cat: i hope so, tween. my brain is so saturated with Firesign since 67 it's hard to not think of a Firesign line for almost everything

Zooky Fogg: If your stoned anything can be a comedy.
Cat: indeed. but in a very therapeutic way. like gravity is addictive
llanwydd: I mean rarely heard of
pinholeF200: for a scientist and inventor, Tesla was extremely surreal

Cat: my pleasure
Deputy Dang: Hail Horus Aday!
||||||||| EWeston leaves at 10:50 PM, 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..."
shoes for the dead: Park it and Lock it!
DJTweeny: Thanks for listening everybody, and have a great week :-) See you next time, same FireTime, same FireStation...
Cat: see y'all next week.
||||||||| pinholeF200 rushes out the back door as Mayor P'nisnose blasts through the front door holding a shotgun and shouting "Where's pinholeF200?! It's 10:50 PM and my ballot boxes haven't been stuffed yet!"
DJTweeny: Thanks Cat
||||||||| "10:51 PM? I'm late!" exclaims Cat, who then dashes out through the french doors and down through the flowerbeds.
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "10:51 PM and late as usual, it's Johan Amadeus Myjetski, just back from Tennessee."
Deputy Dang: Yo Johan!
DJTweeny: Until last time, again...
||||||||| Rufus_T_Firetween departs at 10:52 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| "Hey DJTweeny!" ... DJTweeny turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 10:52 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
Deputy Dang: lol
Deputy Dang: night all
||||||||| 10:53 PM -- Deputy Dang left for parts unknown.   (Entry from Nick Danger's "Idiots I Have Been Paid To Follow").
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| It's 11:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Johan Amadeus Myjetski - dead from measles
||||||||| Zooky Fogg - dead from Globner's disease
||||||||| Beet - dead from the yaws
||||||||| shoes for the dead - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| lily - dead from Globner's disease
||||||||| Lil - dead from the common cold
||||||||| 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 4:32 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."
