    Massive = impassive = established?  What is this – hip hop?

      *Hyperventilates* Oh lord I’m on BoingBoing! If I’d known I might have fished out my old login details and tidied the thing up a bit. Yeah, it’s a bit of a stretch, that one, but the rhyme scheme is a brute.

    Coincidentally, I just fished an elderly raven out of the pool about five minutes ago.

    Doesn’t hold a patch on “Abort? Retry? Ignore?”

    “Save!” I said, “You cursed mother! Save my data from before!” One thing did the phosphors answer, only this and nothing more, Just, “Abort, Retry, Ignore?”

    Cory, you should outsource your jokes.

    Hey Cory, couldn’t take 30 seconds to make sure you spelled Edgar ALLAN Poe correctly?

    As much as I enjoyed this I’m really looking forward to the Rimbaud piece. After all David Morrell, who wrote First Blood, said he was inspired to create the character when his wife brought home some Rambo apples while he was reading Rimbaud’s poetry.

    For one terrifying moment there, having missed the date, I thought there was actually yet another Rambo movie coming out.  Then again, the lack of “Bullet to the Head” is also something of a giveaway.
