1 I wasn't. I was wired to the hilt on caffeine, sleep-deprived, and
I'd had a can of beer. Don't impute my mental states in public, mister.

2 Why shouldn't I ask questions when I'm caned, if you're allowed to
ask them when on "fine wine and fine cigars"? Part of what got me into
thinking about memetics and group cognitive processing in the first place
was a period of sometimes stoned self-reflection. It got me started, so I'm
not going to do the chemical down.
