  •  I'm not fond of self-starting video either (3+ / 0-)

    but "inconsiderate and unconscionable" and therefore "not civilized"?  Seriously?

    •  I rank it right up there with telemarketing. (0+ / 0-)

      That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --

        Fair enough.  :)  I try to be polite and civilized to telemarketers, who are probably earning minimum wage (or worse, subminimum and having to earn "commissions") but it's the only job they can find.  But I'd sure like to have a few words with the owners of the telemarketing firms .... :D

    •  Aren't you out to destroy Civilization? (0+ / 0-)

      Or rule it via Boskone?

      Perhaps self-starting video is the just the starting point.  Soon, it will be thionite, and then .....

      We're on to you!

        You should know better than to speak in the presence of one of the Master Race.  You insects with your ephemeral life spans and intelligence barely above that of a Zabriskan fontema are beneath Our notice, except when one or more of you has the foolish audacity to challenge one the Masters, such as (ahem) Myself.  If you wish to hold on to the remaining few moments of your pitiful ephemeral life, you had best conduct yourself appropriately, or you shall face death at Our hands; a death, you may be certain, which shall be exquisitely drawn out.  (We delegate such tasks to the Overlords, of course.)
