homunculus!

Or even better the phrase homunculus fallacy.

That'll be tough to use in a modern context... challenge accepted.

haha... I prefer the phrase. The word itself reminds me of sperm.

I'm going to do a shootout video against the Paradox in a few weeks. The sound out of the AD is impressive and build looks great. Not sure I can say it completely tops the Paradox. I think the Paradox has it's own set of strengths. Stay tuned my friend I'll posy somethin up eventually.

Thanks.

Sitting in a coffeeshop, drinking a cappuccino, with snus and my iPad. Next to me is a shopping bag with two north african wool shirts and two nice pair of pants. Benzodiazepines are flowing throug my blood. Had a good meeting at work - they're hiring another junior DBA for me to train for the time that we've missed when I was away (trap?). Trap, or not, life feels ******** good right now.

Very sweet. I'm not quite getting the 'trap' thing though...

I'll take a swing at it:
Either he thinks he could possibly be training his replacement...
OR
He's inquiring as to the possibility of this new junior DBA being a transgendered individual of the male variety.

Man I wish there was a place to get a really solid cappuccino around this client I'm stationed with.

Wow. I'd try it to see how well they did.

But if the cup is anywhere near expensive, then I'd rather just pay people. Like the article says, I'm not paying Starbucks prices to a machine that doesn't need health insurance.

Yeah, gotta wonder what the prices are. It's interesting, though. I think the article mentions the social aspects of coffee and how this would potentially run into roadblocks because of that as well. Well, unless Cortana were my barista...
