->"Well, all right, then it could be about whatever you want," they said. "It could be about magic." [[AuthorAppeal I am a bit of a sucker, I suppose, for the old magic.]] Also, I like showing off how brilliant and knowledgeable I am, so I could not resist saying, "Well, if you want to do an opera, and there's a bit of magic, then you should probably do it about UsefulNotes/{{Alchemy}}. Because, actually opera grew out of alchemy. [[BaroqueMusic Monteverdi]] was an alchemist." I know these things, and I really sort of enjoy rubbing people who don't know them's noses in it.

->What a curiosity {{The Lone Gunmen}} have turned out to be. I find them a peculiar success despite the fact that I sometimes find them extremely annoying...The only one that I cannot get on with on a regular basis is Langly who strikes me as the worst excesses of geek hood in human form. Every time he opens his mouth I want to [[TalkToTheFist stuff something fist-sized inside]], his mock anger is wearying and I hate the way he always thinks he is right in that pigeon-holed way that geeks do when their dander is up. Hes the sort of person that would hack into government files for something as facile as gaining access to disabled parking areas.

->Life is rough for smart kids in school. There's nothing super-heroic about getting your underwear yanked up your ass by meatheads because you can read without moving your lips. Having said that, in any high school, there's always that one smug, self-satisfied smart kid who likes rubbing their big brain in the other kids' faces. Remember how much everyone hated that kid? Okay, now add 'super-intelligence' to your list of powers, where suddenly you can argue foreign policy with Nobel Laureates while doing long division in your head and scribbling a cure for leukemia on a notepad. You're gonna turn into an insufferable jerk faster than you can say, 'Well, I suppose that's a ''simplified way'' of looking at it.' LexLuthor may be a genius, but nobody's inviting his smug ass to their house parties.
