But what about the plan to commit suicide and meet with the
aliens behind Richard Brodie's house?

- ------------------

Now, Hakeeb, that was irresponsible. Look, Richard has already
told us that we aren't sophisticated enough to know the 4Ps
(maybe when we're older)
and here you go creating a "suicide-behind-Richard's-house"
meme. Can you image his distress? Who knows what unstable
kooks might be lurking?

In the interest of Richard's peace of mind I propose we cease all
discussion of this topic. It's a dangerous meme.

People are children
Censorship is necessary

No statement I have made in this post is any more ironic than
the others.
