Oh, in that case.... GET OFF MY LIST!
I'm always amused when someone comes up with a wack-ass (but
humorous and vaguely amusing) concept and others start to fill in
the details with equally crazy but logically-derived extrapolations.
If ever anyone calls the bluff, be it at the initial concept stage
(a pressurised disco idea is full of hot air), at the final hair-
splitting stage (San Francisco code A3452 clearly forbids parking
gasoline powered vehicles in the vicinity of buildings full of
high pressure gas), or, as I did, at some intermediate stage there
is always someone who will defend their own path of logic.
Anyway, I have to apologise to the whole list for attempting to
use a pseudo-Star Track phrase in a humorous context. Flushing out
people with no lives is an inevitable consequence. They should
add "use of Star Trek" to the How To Argue process. It rates along
side introducing Hitler to a debate.
I hang my head in shame.....
