    JMS' reply:
    Someone's been talking to Mr. Garibaldi.
    Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.

    Kosh: Good!

          I alternate between being in awe of the way JMS's mind works, and thinking he is need of prefessional help.
          "That was the law, as set down by Valen. Three castes: worker, religious, warrior."

            In that case, WorkerCaste, you'll love this one:

            IÆve mentioned before that I still hear the characters from Babylon 5 talking in my head at all hours, especially at night when IÆm trying to sleep. I alluded to one of them at the last convention I attended. I generally scour them out of my head when they come because if I donÆt, if I let them accumulate, pretty soon character A has something to say about what character B said and it starts going nonstop. But this one, despite being brief, was rather tenacious. What follows is the exchange in full.

            Visualize, if you will, as I unwillingly did, Londo walking alongside Sheridan. Unsurprisingly, Londo is doing all the talking here.

            ôIÆm afraid I have a slight problem with your concept of a æbulls-eye.Æ I have investigated this matter at length and it is simply a series of concentric circles with a dot in the center. It looks nothing at all like a bull, or an eye, or an eye of a bull. Not even a bull that had too much to drink the night before, unless you know something about the genetics of these creatures that I failed to discover in my research. Insofar as I can determine, a æbulls eyeÆ is nothing more than a big stiff piece of wood with a target on its front. Which brings me at last to YOU, Captain Sheridan....ö

            Now...did anybody *not* hear Londo's voice? And *not* smile at the exchange between Peter and JMS?

                  Has it occurred to anyone else that the scene in the first Lord of the Rings movie where Gandalf breaks the bridge at Khazad-dûm and yells "You shall not pass!" would make a great commercial for a company specializing in vasectomies? Or is it just me?

                  Okay, so maybe it WAS just me...but now none of YOU are ever going to look at that scene again in quite the same way. So in the end: I win.

                  Miguel: no, you miss the point. You would cut out of the clip BEFORE that part. That's the thing about editing and vasectomies: you need to know when to cut.

                  Having two tiny residual scars from the vasectomy I had on my 21st birthday, in memory of this conversation I shall herewith name one of them Gandalf, the other Frodo.

                            And that, folks, was WorkerCastes 1,100th post. See how well he used it?

                            I don't usually copy people's posts verbatim but since it was a paraphrase and since it earned him a request from JMS to put his "face in the book", I'm making an exception:

                            In my life, I have never seen anything like it; He would weep, he would pray, he would say goodbye to his loved ones, and then throw himself without fear or hesitation at the very face of albumin itself, never surrendering. No one who saw him fighting against the inevitable could help but be moved to tears by his courage. His stubborn nobility. When he ran out of paper towels, he used napkins, when he ran out napkins he used rags and sponges and bare hands. He was magnificent. I only hope that when it is my time, I may clean with half as much dignity as I saw in his eyes in the end. He did this for two years. He never ran out of courage but in the end, they ran out of eggs.
                            JMS sure puts up with a lot from us...
