...1) You should probably reread that thread. I made two statements, one noting that someone fucked up a 911 in a movie, like the one Glenn posted, and two, noting that Tawny Kitaen was not your thing. Neither insinuated I currently find that film the bee's knees.

2) I noted the film came out when I was 15, because that is when I saw it. Thus, I clearly was not an adult at the time. Therefore , my enjoyment of that film at the time would be rooted in my juvenile sense of humo(u)r, much like that of the juvenile behavior of mooning a building simply because the word Trump is on it.

3) I tagged you in the goofy article (note: they weren't married, just dating) for the sole reason that I knew you would react just like this. It would piss you off and then you would emote your way into an argument in which your basis is entirely what you infer, rather than the words actually written. Again, reread the two statements.

Lastly, yep, I enjoy needling you into behaving like a pompous Brit. Enjoy your pint, Princess.

-----To translate it into UNIX system administration terms (Randy’s fundamental metaphor for just about everything), the post-modern politically correct atheists were like people who had found themselves in charge of a big and unfathomably complex computer system (viz. society) with no documentation or instructions of any kind, and so whose only way to keep the thing running was to invent and enforce certain rules with a kind of neo-Puritanical rigor, because they were at a loss to deal with any kind of deviations from what they saw as the norm. Whereas people who were wired into a church were like UNIX system administrators who, while they might not understand everything, at least had some documentation, some FAQs and How-tos and README files, providing some guidance on what to do when things got out of whack. -Neil Stephenson, Cyrptonomicon
