An Hour With Harriet

2012-04-30: I had the great pleasure of speaking with Harriet McDougal Rigney about her life. She's an amazing talent and person and it will take you less than an hour to agree.

Default The Ten Laws of Theoryland

As Compiled through 4 years of Observation.

The Law of Infinite Family

If a pretty lady joins Theoryland, Sei'taer gains a sister.

The LoneStar Conundrum

At one point or another, every Theorylander will sleep within the geographical boundaries of the "Great" State of Texas. If it has not happened yet, fret not. It Shall, and that first sleep shall be a dreamless, peaceful one.

The Strangling Sinistrum Supposition

During their time posting at Theoryland, every Theorylander will fantasize, at least once, about holding Sinistrum's life in their bare, clenching, hands.

The DD Doctrine

Any mention of boobs at all will immediately turn all the men of Theoryland into creepy internet perverts, and guarantee at least 50 posts for the thread.

The Firseal Foundation

Firseal's candor, commedic timing, and clutch to anonymity implies only that he is a sentient internet anomoly, who, unlike his "daughter," Skynet, seeks only harmony between Humans and Machines.

The Philosophy of Fault

All things wrong with the Universe are to be blamed on Hamster Porn and/or Terez, with no exceptions.

The RogueSavior Requirement

If I, RogueSavior, post in a thread, it will devolve into one of three things. A Hot Chick thread, A sports thread, or me calling someone an idiot. Note, that these are not exclusive subjects.

The Cheesy Cucumber Conundrum

There is no food safe from being turned into a Euphemism for Sex. No, not even that one.

The ESC Expectation

In any single political conversation, half of the participants will take the debate way too seriously, the other half shall only contribute to the discussion with smart-ass remarks.

The Law of Reputation

When all else fails, make fun of the New York Yankees and/or RogueSavior. The meaner the better. Double Reputation points if you make him cry. "Crybaby gonna cry? Look, guys, he's delicate!"

Such shall henceforth be known as The Original Ten. I shall now add new laws, as they become known through rigorous observation.

The Beggar's Choice

Beg for reputation, and ye shall not receive it. No matter how deserving ye be, under the other laws.

The Edit Hypothesis

If you make a grammatical typo, and are quoted on it, editing it only makes you seem smrt. Very, very, smrt.

The Nickname Necessity

No matter how long you've been on Theoryland, how inappropriate the nickname is, or how long it's been since you've been called it, someone remembers. Theorylanders are like Elephants when it comes to nicknames. And Theorylander nicknames are like the Terminator - They'll be back. Always.

The Duty Dereliction Darwinist Principle

The longer it takes for a new member to receive their 'Official Greeting' from the 'Official Greeter,' the more likely they are to stick around out of stubborn refusal to be ignored.

The Inverse Strangling Sinistrum Supposition

See also, "The Strangling Sinistrum Supposition," but alternate all occurences of "every Theorylander" and "Sinistrum."

Please, If I don't make the awkward sexual innuendos, who will? The only question that remains is, what colors do you want, Zae?

And I don't know WHAT you're talking about, Naz

Nevermind. Just ramblings of an old man. But where is the Law of Unpredictable Posters?

PS: And shouldn't I get something for making fun of you? I know it was a bit subtle, but still...

Still no law of unpredictable posters?

PS: Wait there it is! A warm fuzzy feeling. Thanks RS. It's good to know that one always gets something nice, should one make fun of you.

It seems you have a law to share with the class, Nazziepoo. Now, Now. Speak up.

You mean you don't know about it?

There are posters on these forums with whom you never know what to expect. No matter what the topic is or their previous posts contain, you can never be certain of their next one. They are Unpredictable. The best approach is not to expect anything, when dealing with an Unpredictable. You have been warned.

Fixed.

I observe. I remain unsurprised. And Zanguini, those aren't Laws. Those are rules. Rules are made by man. Laws can be scientifically proven.

Also, Zaela got Yankees colors. I can't believe it took me so long to decide.

RS you little scamp. Trying to but words in my ... well not exactly mouth but you get the idea. However it just so happens that even I cannot predict the posts of certain members of our fine community. You of course can't predict any of them.

New Law up. And also, in a way, my nickname is especially like the Terminator, because deep down, I'll always be 'Shiny.'
