DIE, THREAD™!

In other news, my (relatively) new mouse may be faulty. Stupid thing keeps double-clicking without me actually clicking twice.

I have a new swanky wireless mouse, with back-and-forward buttons as a bonus.

You sound like Hammerite. Suspiciously so.

Did I ever mention that our Solar System is a cowtown?

Because it is.


Ergo, New York is a cowtown too. On a galactic scale.

I didn't want to call our world a "hicktown", but seriously, I probably could have. Or One-horse town.






Aaaaanyway. Who can tell me what a the Swiss people (or rather, Swiss bureocrats) mean by "selfreproducing small flying body on biological basis with securely programmed automatic return from all possible directions and distances."?

A Messenger Pigeon.

There's more. A "non-living enclosure" is a fence.

A "people separating complex" is a turnstile.

A "biosensor" is a police dog.

"Spontaneous Vegetation" is weeds.

"Roughage consuming large animal unit" is a cow.

"Demand controlled pedestrian ford" is a traffic light.

And the one that really cracks me up is "Life authorisation certificate" (though in German it rather sounds like "Life entitlement certificate") is a register.



This is all authentic (though of course, now translated to English) bureocratic German. It makes you wonder if those bureocrats don't have too much time on their hands or want to intentionally confuse normal people. And apparently, sometimes it confuses the bureocrats themselves.

Keck, they've even found another word for "Tree"! It's "Space overshadowing large greenery" (This is a very awkward translation. In German version is "Raumübergreifendes Großgrün". Or as most *normal* people call it, "Baum".).

Then there's some nice rules, like that Wifes that shoot their husbands cannot make claims to get a Widow's retirement. I guess they will have to kill their husband's some other way, then.

Or a protocol of the Ministry of Economy: Export regulations are explanations of explanations with which an explanation is explained.

One of the instruction leaflets for the Bundeswehr administration apparently states this: Death is, in concern to accomodation and pension, is considered the strongest Form of disablement.

Well, I'm glad I won't have to serve in the military any longer, once I'm dead.

Though with my luck, I'd probably have to send them an attestation that I really *am* dead.

I guess I can be glad that, as a girl, I don't necessarily *have* to serve in the military, then.

You know, Raumübergreifendes Großgrün would make a good band name.

Or not.

Hired Date

Clients of an exclusive escort agency are vanishing without trace. All other leads exhausted Inspector Lacey sets himself up as bait. Will he solve the mystery or will he too be escorted away?

What, are you in the military?

Awesomness if you are.
