The Wrapping Extravaganza Park Place Log

i do not like her name.
    there was no thought of pleasing you when she was christened.
what stature is she of?
    just as high as my heart.
you're full of pretty answers.
    — as you like it

and my two cents here, but does anyone really care if someone posts 'first'.  i mean really, why would you flag that.  its no big deal to me.
    (smirk)  every time a First post disappears, an angel gets his wings.
ok, but that just plain silly.  i mean why would that upset anyone?
    idiocy should be punished.
really.  well i have seen a hell of a lot worse than posting 'first'.  wow have we really sunk that far.
    (shrug)  i have too, but i don't see why that's any reason to let the firsters slide.
    — i imagine you can guess which ones are mine.    (i ditched the capitals, but everything else is sic.)

identify yourself!
    you will identify first.
daleks do not take orders.
    you have identified as daleks.
outline resembles the inferior species known as cybermen.
    our species are similar, though your design is inelegant.
daleks have no concept of elegance.
    this is obvious; but consider: our technologies are compatible.  cybermen plus daleks.  together we could upgrade the universe.
you propose an alliance?
    this is correct.
request denied.
    hostile elements will be deleted.
    daleks be warned: you have declared war upon the cybermen.
this is not war.  this is pest control.
    we have five million cybermen.  how many are you?
    you would destroy the cybermen with four daleks?
we would destroy the cybermen with one dalek.  you are superior in only one respect.
    what is that?
you are better at dying.
        five million cybermen: easy.  one doctor?  now you're scared.
    — doctor who (doomsday)    NB: unlike other quotes, sentences have been eliminated

The Outer Limits Park Place Log VI

few of us have the opportunity to truly begin again: to redress the flaws that tarnish our souls.
    — the vessel

you came to destroy us?  to kill us all?
    not necessarily.  see, the fate of a world isn't determined by its best examples, but by its worst.  it only takes a few to destroy the many.  especially when even the best of you can be dragged down into the mire.
    — heart's desire

there is a difference between playing God and aspiring to fulfill the potential for greatness that God gave us.
    — final appeal

the search for truth is a uniquely human process: a quest guided by our perception on an event.  but what happens to the truth when what we see and what we *think* we see are two very different things?
    — bodies of evidence

in a society where devotion to one's family is frequency sacrificed on the altar of ambition, can the things we sacrifice ever be regained?
    — family values

for centuries, philosophers and theologians have debated what it means to be human.  perhaps the answer has eluded us because it is so simple: to be human is to choose.
    — feasibility study

the answers to mankind's future problems can be found within so long as there are those among us willing to make the sacrifice.
    — patient zero

we make tools to extend our abilities, to further our reach, and fulfill our aspirations, but we must never let them define us, for if there is no difference between tool and maker, then who will be left to build the world?
    — stream of consciousness

The Liquid Christmas Park Place Log

luckily for the pats, the steel city isn't hosting next week's game.
(the ravens would've owned tonight's if they hadn't been so error-happy.)

don't worry: christmas is coming.  maybe your wife will give you a dog collar.
    — party wire

regarding the kingmaker situation...  welcome to the metagame.

of course, once we enter the new year, the truce if over.  i'm going to open a bag of freak on all of you.
    — kim possible (very possible christmas)

diametrically opposite.  not to be confused with the opposite where you're not really opposite.

    it's not every day i get to sample american cuisine.
you're in luck.  i just took possession of an honor student from illinois on her vacation.  plucked from a cancoun beach.  blonde, big boned—
    carpet matches drapes.
hardwood floor.
    — blade: the series (death goes on)

i don't know what trait it is that i'm lacking, but i just cannot muster up the desire to argue on a forum.  i've gotten so far as hitting Reply and starting to pen a response, but i inevitably decide to call it a day and go somewhere else.

please patronize our advertizers.
    (shrug)  if you insist.  oh, your products are ~so~ good...
