The Reverse Engineer, part deux

Sorry things here at iba have been so quiet but it's been more of a thinking kind of New Years than a writing kind of New Years.

I went to see Paycheck with my brother yesterday. I didn't have high expectations for the movie so I wasn't terribly disappointed when I walked out of the theater. The explosions were very good - the writing, directing, and acting were... well, let's just say if as much effort went into them as the explosions it would have been an excelent movie.

Before the movie came on I was looking at the ads they show on the screen. There was an anti-drug ad that said:

The basic ingredients for making methamphetamine can be purchased at local stores.

Don't support drug use!

I still can't figure out what the ad was trying to say. Was it saying that shopping at local, methamphetamine-ingredient-supplying stores promotes drug use? Does this make the local chamber of commerce drug lords?

The fact that you took the effort to italicize "excellent" but did not funnel that same effort towards spelling it correctly makes me giggle.

I do so love to giggle!

That's funny, your comment had a similar a effect on me. But damnit, now I can't fix the spelling, can I? I'm am fighting the urge to fix it. A few moments saved by not running the spell checker result in a lengthy period of embarrassment, shame, and, of course, giggles.



Would it make you giggle more to know that I screwed up the <i> tags so it took me even longer than you thought to get it right while still screwing up the spelling?

Why yes!

Yes it would!

You also fucked up the spelling on deux, and no one mentioned it for 10 days?
