I first became aware of it, Mandrake, during the physical act of love. Yes, a profound sense of fatigue, a feeling of emptiness followed. Luckily I was able to interpret these feelings correctly. Loss of essence. I can assure you it has not recurred, Mandrake. Women, women sense my power, and they seek the life essence. I do not avoid women, Mandrake, but I do deny them my essence.

I am: amused amused

I love that movie. Peter Sellers at his finest.

I cannot fucking *believe* that some moron at BU dinged my film professor on ratemyprofessor.com or whatever it is because "he's an egotistical jackass, and if you want him to sit around all class and tell you about how he hung out with Peter Sellers, that's fine, but I'm here to learn."

BU puts out its share of morons, but that was just appalling.

It took me two readings to figure out this wasn't about Linux.

That was my reaction, too. "Mandrake... Gentoo... No."

Although I now see an entire market: Strangelove Linux (Live CD that's ADA-compliant-- "Mine Fuhrer, I can walk!"), Turgidson Linux (Live CD with Skype-- "I told you never to call me here!"), Ripper Linux (Live CD with CD Paranoia, Lame, and so on), Muffley Linux (Live CD with firewall-- "Gentlemen! You can't fight in here! This is the war room!"), Zogg Linux (Live CD with Network Monitoring), and so on.

Sadly, nobody would get it.

...eerily like the origin story of the Tantric Magician in Wild Cards. Whatever his name was. Fortunato. (Thanks, Google.) I wonder if Lewis Shiner was watching Strangelove.
