Whilst moving between offices this morning, I happened upon TGND so settled in for a bit of a geeky chat.
It all started promisingly:
“Have you heard of Geek Squad?” he asks.
“It rings a vague bell.” says I.
“I’m gonna call them and have a dictaphone to record them…” he goes on, with an evil smirk.
“Why’s that?” I enquire.
“I’m gonna ask them some questions regarding Linux, and when they say they don’t do Linux, I’m gonna say ‘What kind of geeks are you? you’re not geeks, you’re nerds!'”
I had to agree with him there.
The conversation then went on with me noting that there was only 1/2 hour and an hour until the weekend (I have no idea why I said it that way either).
This led him to (mildly) rant about how old people say strange things regarding time: “5 and 20 to 4.” and such.
Somehow this led to us discussing whether time would exist after the end of the world (I know, I know). Personally I think it would:
“What’s the time now?”
“20 minutes past the end of the world…”
“Damn, did you set the video for Eastenders?”
