I saw something about N on the news yesterday.
 
Blame Tunisia, what should I say.
 
I always do.
 
@RegDwight — from Californication, Season 2: "Elton John going down on George Michael in a public washroom? Less gay."
 
Hehe. Those guys don't cross paths like that.
 
9:04 PM
Paths?
Is that a euphemism in German or Russian?
 
Heh.
George Michael gets in, everyone else gets out. Oh well.
 
@Martha! We finished your blurb.
 
Ok, shoot.

Here's her blurb: "Vote for me and I'll THWACK every damn one of ya!"
Now you and your ruler get yourselves over to the nomination page.
 
Wait, shouldn't that be or instead of and? Or is EL&U full of masochists?
 
9:15 PM
THWACK us and find out.
 
I already have thwacked you. Remember?
 
Not enough times, obviously. And not everyone!
 
Okay, everybody needs to calm down.
You are all clearly losing your minds.
 
More seriously, I think I need to wait until I get home to work on the blurb. Although I am tempted to put in the threat as a placeholder...
@Kosmonaut, what's with this implication that we had minds in the first place?
 
Please please please please please put it in as is.

Followed by "I'm @Martha and I approved this message."
 
9:18 PM
Can't lose something I don't have, @Kosmonaut.
 
JINX!
 
Semantic jinx?

JINX!
 
"It didn't sound the same, but it meant the same"
 
I figure in a chat, close enough.

Jinx!
 
"The rules of Jinx are clear and inflexible." — Pam Beesley, The Office
 
That JINX thing is completely new to me.
 
THANK you, @Robusto.
 
My sister and I habitually erupt with the same comment at the same time, so I know all about it.
 
At least you don't erupt with the same mythical creatures.
 
9:22 PM
OK, @Martha, what's it gonna be? Jinx-talkin' dominatrix with a hardwood ruler and a bad attitude goin' medieval on our asses? Or just another 5K rep hump on E&U.SE?
 
"The unicorn is a mythical beast," she said, and turned her back on him. The man walked slowly downstairs and out into the garden. The unicorn was still there; now he was browsing among the tulips. "Here, unicorn," said the man, and he pulled up a lily and gave it to him. The unicorn ate it gravely. With a high heart, because there was a unicorn in his garden, the man went upstairs and roused his wife again. "The unicorn," he said,"ate a lily."
His wife sat up in bed and looked at him coldly. "You are a booby," she said, "and I am going to have you put in the booby-hatch."
 
Stop helping her dodge the question, @RegDwight!
 
Stopping...

The choice is yours.

In the foundations of mathematics, Russell's paradox (also known as Russell's antinomy), discovered by Bertrand Russell in 1901, showed that the naive set theory created by Georg Cantor leads to a contradiction. The same paradox had been discovered a year before by Ernst Zermelo but he did not publish the idea, which remained known only to Hilbert, Husserl and other members of the University of Göttingen. Let R be the set of all sets that are not members of themselves. If R qualifies as a member of itself, it would contradict its own definition as a set containing sets that are not member...
The choice is yours.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
 
You win over 9000 Internets.
 
There, happy now?
 
9:27 PM
Looks good.
 
It really could use a limerick.
 
YES YES YES YES YES! THANK YOU! MWAHH! MWAHH!
 
Except that now cue someone of the incognoscenti coming along and deleting it or something.
 
@Kosmonaut, yeah, but I suck at all forms of poetry.
 
If you're having trouble getting started, just start with "There once was a man from Nantucket" and go from there.
 
9:29 PM
That so effing dwarfs my writeup... I'm envious.
 
If they do, I can just re-post it. Or something like it.
 
Read my comment.
 
Next time I'm letting you all write stuff for me too.
How about posting answers on behalf of me?
I'll just sit in the data dump, watching the rep trickle in.
 
C'mon, everyone, get over there and uptick my comment so she can't back out.
 
Tee hee. :)
 
9:37 PM
Alas, I have to go when things are just about to get interesting...
Good night, everyone!
 
@Kosmonaut — Did you see Synechdoche, New York? It takes that idea and multiplies it by, like, a thousand.
'Night, @RegDwight.
 
I so want to see that movie... Keep forgetting.
I'm out!
 
Dammit, does that mean I have to go pretend to work now?
 
What, @RegDwight leaves and you're all like, well, cyaz?
 
Well, I've posted my nomination blurb, what else is there to do other than converting this stupid chart to the new database setup?
 
9:41 PM
No, you've done well. I guess you've earned a return to real life.
