Or since I'm filling in for Paul this week, maybe that should be "summary 
half-baked". Sorry this is so late.

 >>and move, and fire, and move, and fire, and move, and fire<<

By far the dominant thread of the week was The Lurker II, which span off 
several major threads of its own. Simon Kinahan asked if anyone had tried 
sharpening razor blades in a pyramid, and Daynal said that she had. Dave 
Cantrell questioned the scientific rigour of the experiment. The discussion 
then became science vs. the paranormal, and things got a bit spirited. 
Eventually, everyone calmed down and moved on to auras, floaters and John 
Melesky's nose exceedingly falling off.


I'm still amazed that nobody mentioned that it's not four sided pyramids 
that allegedly sharpen razors, if you count the base. Come ON, people!

 >>organically challeged<<

Spinning off from The Lurker II after duncan mentioned U571 came Wartime 
Enigma Breaking in which Steve Mynott praised the m4d (rypto skillz of the 
Polish, Mike Moran suggested that the term "Artificial Intelligence" wasn't 
PC :P and duncan bemoaned the high incidence of geocities sites in his 
recent googling.


 >>So what's it all about then, really, when you get down to it?<<

Science and Magick went by way of Newton, alchemy and the Hermetic 
Principles to wind up being a discussion of whether there was an ultimate 
meaning behind everything. Never let it be said that (void) is overly 
trivial. Then, Alex Robinson told us all about his wasp army and the thread 
went from Ultimate Truth to "pimpline ichneumonids" driving around in pink 
cadillacs and slapping their bee-yotches (oof).


 >>diplomacy, strategy and physical prowess<<

Arp's reply to some pillock's offlist post spawned a discussion of the 
basic categories of games and/or sports. Robert Jones mentioned 
mumbledepeg, which is a Texan game if ever I heard one. Dave C's disdainful 
mention of the lottery brought up the subject of random number generation, 
which became a thread about gambling computers and led to an Orwell 
pastiche from Veeg.


 >>a year dead for tax purposes<<

A continuation of Last week's Nonweb thread covered the HHGTTG and graphic 
novels, in particular Frank Miller and Alan Moore. Simon Wistow revealed 
that he once lived near Hotblack Desiato.


 >>They'll get my copy of 'Atlas Shrugged' when they pry it out of my cold, 
dead hands<<

Robert Jones brought our attention to Jerry Begley's arrest for 
distributing "constitutional propaganda"/informing his fellow jurors of 
their rights. Steve Mynott and Robert Jones defended him from Arp's scorn. 
The thread became a general legal discussion about pleas, appeals and 
perjury. Dave Cantrell mentioned Johnathan Aitken and Daynal suggested an 
establishment conspiracy to stitch Aitken up. Steve Mynott and Arp gave 
different views of Ayn Rand and objectivism.


 >>punk isn't dead, it just smells that way<<

Replicant's praise of "Crazy Taxi" was echoed by Simon Wistow and Duncan in 
this weeks games thread. Soulcalibur was talked up, and Robert Jones asked 
about Bad Religion on the "Crazy Taxi" soundtrack.


 >>twisting my melons<<

Harl kicked off a thread about MDMA and memory loss, in which the subject 
of psychedelics was explored in fair detail by Steve Mynott (my *God* man, 
don't you sleep?) and Daynal. Acid and E were suggested as a potentially 
synergistic combination.



The upcoming Lord of the Rings movie was discussed by Arp and Patrik 
Nordebo. Arp lamented the lack of a classic film of the fantasy genre. The 
discussion moved on to movie funding and break-even. Robert Jones gave the 
D&D film a thorough kicking and threw stout knives at its feet, so to speak.


Ah, now my chance to play tin-pot ubermemenfuhrer. Links of the week this 
week from Arp, duncan, Mike Moran and Frank Gough:


What? Okay, so I like the combination of monkies, kungfu and robots, is 
that a crime?
