Off

Thanks to my magisterial command of modal semantics and my Herculean ability to derive ought from is, I was able to secure for myself a free (well... almost free) flight to my old stomping ground. So I'll be away for a few days, making the most of the final weeks of summer. I'll be flashing the secret sign throughout my voyage, for those who might be interested. I'm sure I'll run into a few of you jerks.

Try not to miss me too much.

Any plebe can get a free flight; I'll regard you as truly Herculean if you manage to wangle a free pillow.

I don't know the secret sign, but I know Gorgoroth... this is Norwegian black metal that you might find challenging

An intriguing documentary on them is here:

Glaucon,

Nice! I'm told that Olbermann reported last night that American Air ($5 pillowers) charges soldiers for their extra luggage.

Know the band. Will check out the doc. Thanks.

If you hate Metallica, then I *highly* recommend the doc *Some Kind of Monster* which really shows you just what wankers they all are (especially the drummer - what a passive aggressive jackass. No wonder James Hetfield has an anger management/drinking problem).
