Perhaps the funniest thing ever said


Two things:

1 - Good luck to Colin, Brian and Jay as they move to a new apartment today in one-foot-deep snow. Poor timing, but I hear the new place is great.

2 - Note the new tagline up top under "Lomo y Queso": More powerful than Skynet.

Megan Edith's brother Tyler was chatting with us at the Ediths' wedding and he told us a story about a nerdy friend who claimed to have created an artificial intelligence program that was "more powerful than Skynet." (Skynet was the computer network that took over the machines and the world in the Terminator series.)

Shakespeare told us that brevity is the soul of wit, and for many reasons, including its brevity and the way it blurs lines between fiction and reality, I seriously think the phrase "more powerful than Skynet," could be the funniest thing I've ever heard.

I'll be sure to tell my brother you enjoyed the story enough to make it your tagline.
Also, who is this Able DJ. Marty and I also live on City Road, but in a much different part of London I think.

Able DJ is one of my best friends from home. We both went to University in Bristol and he is still there, being a DJ and general messer.

Bristol is west of London on the M4, near Bath.

Pronounced "bahth" not "baath."

Oh. Bristol, Not London. I get it now.

Glad you liked the comment! I might use it too. Who knows, it might just enter popular use.
