@R_Chirgwin You’ll have fun editing that rant down to time. ;) Either that, or it’s Extended Tubes time. No. Wait. That sounds wrong.

@jayrosen_nyu Absent-minded professor is good. [nods] I wondered it were a political statement, like spelling “Amerika” thusly. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

@jayrosen_nyu Is there any particular reason you spell “Murdoch” with a “k”? ;) He was an Aussie, so maybe “Roopert” too?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

@dmriver Well, “meaningful” has many values and variations. Have you been getting useful rains out your way?

@bigjsl @R_Chirgwin I think I may adopt that “no, put this on YOUR tab” rule too. I am not a bank. ;)

If I were Premier of Queensland, I would give bananas to everyone. To some special people, I would give two. Perhaps even more.

@mrsnickhodge No, not castration. You can’t castrate people by stabbing them in the face. I’ve learned that lesson.

@mrsnickhodge @lindsayevans There’s nothing wrong with feeling stabby. It’s NATURAL!
