My post was not, alas, a clever response to the MetaTalk thread about reposting rules - I just thought that time.gov was a cool blast from the past!

I love how Jessamyn likes the "hide a letter in a library book" AskMe but introduces it like "well, rileyray3000 wants to FUCK AROUND with the LIBRARY".

Music instrument talk- Jessamyn, you were probably maybe thinking of a bass clarinet, which is approximately bassoon-sized, oboe-colored, saxophone-shaped, and (low) clarinet-sounding.

I think I need to make an alarm or ringtone of jessamyn shouting, “Aaaaah! Shit! Goddammit!” at Snake Tetris. There’s a little bit of cortex talking in that “Aaaaah!” though, so it might be hard to clean up.
