    The dialog:

    “Darth Vader: Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for… sister. So, you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side. Then perhaps she will.”

    The cartoon I found funniest most recently:

    Sign hanging in the Philosophy Department:
    On a tear-tab for numbers —
    Days without a Logical Fallacy: 38.

    So what is the name of those counting-up (or down) tear-tabs of numbers that we see?

    I will name them, if I don’t find a number “gavroches”, for no particular reason.

    That is, I could just chug in my definition.

    (Think of it this way: 33000 hits on “gavroches”… including #9, the link to John:
    Victor Hugo – John Newmark

    In short, I am interested in genie logos, too — you can make anything appear, even a monkey’s uncle like me — though I’d think, directionally, of myself as a monkey’s nephew.
