1. K: I'm not going to ask you now because you're here and musn't think about anything but poohsoc.
1. J: It was an oppressive forced labour regime, working people to death slowly rather than slicing and dicing.

1. K: You should do music. There's almost no dead bodies. R: Unlike archaeology. G: Or medcine.
1. Katie husts for blue lady tea. It's not blue, doesn't contain ladies, and can't be drunk only by blue ladies, and is sold by the tea man except when he's run out. It's summery and thingy, look.

1. RC: Solihull is like the Nazi capital of the west midlands.
1. G: Plus, he was a crap supervisor so all his supervisees had a big push to elect him so they could have a different supervisor.
1. J: We need to unite the silly parties. We can't split the silly vote!
1. Naath husts for white needle: It's supposed to look like that. It comes from the online tea ordering thing.
1. RC: You've got to love birmingham. There were more postal votes than registered voters in that constituency.
1. K: I only really want to be a black hole because, one, I can master L-space and, two, go ook a lot.

1. Naath has a shogoth just to one side of the bed being menaced by a mongoose, which doesn't scan as well as 'on the roof', a filk which is quite good, in comparison to things like "Like a sturgeon."
1. J: But the solar system generally just goes round the sun so it more or less is possible to model. If a confluence of eccentricities conspires to throw mars into the earth we don't really *want* to know it's going to happen.
1. N: And then about ten years later Hubble said "It *is* expanding," and Einstein said 'bollocks'.
1. N: It has ten to the minus large in it, this upper bound.
1. We're students. We exist to pirate software. F:0 A:0 A: 6.

1. G: To find out the cause of sickle-cell anemia. It was the most fun I've ever had in a computer room. C: You need to get out less.
