New entrance essay question: What happens 72 days from today?

Sometimes I am astounded by the sheer number of nerds that SI has attracted to one place. Other times I am astounded by the vast quantity of nerdiness that has been amassed here.

Depends on how you look at it, I guess. Either way, I seem to spend a lot of time being astounded. Do you think there's a way to harness this power and ensure that it is used for good rather than evil? I'm thinking maybe we could fashion it into some kind of ring...

But there's no Mount Doom around here.

Quiet... SI will hear your dorkiness and come and get you. You'd best hide behind a tree until they've passed.

Awww... your carrot is broken.

Dude, stop telling everyone what my buddy icon for MSN is. Actually, AIM has the same character, just a different picture. Minus the carrot.

so doesn't that make you a nerd too? or at least a nerd-by-association? welcome to the club dude.....welcome to the club.

See... I was putting you *into* the character of Merry in a clever situation where SI was a Ringwraith... never mind. It's not funny if you have to explain it.

Yes! Yes, I am a nerd! And only getting worse!

I am a nerd. I will never attend SI to make it worse.

You are all strange and frightening. I had carrots for dinner, cooked a pot roast.

What *does* happen 72 days from today? I don't want to do the math.

gravatar srah - October 7, 2003 - 1:13 PM -

Clearly monkey-people are a different breed than information professionals. 71 days until the Return of the King!

(Not Elvis)

I wish it were Elvis. You know, he was supposed to return a year ago. Colonel Sanders said.

The Colonel said that? Silly chicken man.
