Writing Talk (Some Guns)

[17:44:23] Jay Goodman Tamboli says: Arthur C. Clarke is dead.

[19:40:42] Scott says:
Huh. At least nothing of value was lost.

[21:36:32] Scott says:
526 words, boo yeah.

[21:45:40] Jay Goodman Tamboli says:
That's 1000001110 in binary!

[21:45:59] Scott says:
Holy God! Why do I bother counting in anything else?

[21:48:13] Scott says:
At about 500, I kind of got into "the zone." So 26 of those words are really top notch.

[21:49:41] Jay Goodman Tamboli says:
Are they a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y, and z?

[21:50:12] Scott says:
Close, but the u has an umlaut. That's what we call "artistic license."

[21:50:33] Jay Goodman Tamboli says:
Äwësömë.

[21:51:13] Scott says:
No matter how I try and pronounce that, I keep sounding like the Swedish chef.

[21:51:23] Jay Goodman Tamboli says:
Bork bork bork.

[21:51:46] Scott says:
Heh.

[21:52:10] Scott says:
They should have asked him who his pick to replace O'Connor was.

[21:53:23] Jay Goodman Tamboli says:
He's obviously in favor of gun rights. http://youtube.com/watch?v=mbs64GvGgPU&feature=related


Speaking of, SCOTUS has just discovered a musty old bit of constitutional lore. Even Justice Stevens, the resident Methuselah, was amazed to find an amendment yet to be inverted, transformed, or outright excised. I won't rest until the Polaris Missile I keep under my pillow is completely legal. At any rate, the dissents should be classic.
