… Meanwhile Blue Universe Frank penned another fine essay on the group of people who were ordered to go outside on 1st July 2007…

*It’s certainly gonna be sometime before I venture back inside a pub, Clicky…/takes angry puff…*

*Alright, I’m getting to it, Clicky… /taps ash…*

… And this week I watched film by another great film Director, Oliver Stone

Oh course, I heard about Edward Snowden, read and posted about the whistleblower at the time he outed himself, but was especially taken with a pivotal scene in the movie. One where he decisively steps outside

GUARD 1: Hey!

SNOWDEN: Did you ever play with one of these?

GUARD 1: Yeah when I was a kid.

SNOWDEN: Yeah. You should try it. It’s hard.

GUARD 1: I can’t figure this out.

GUARD 2: I don’t know about this.

SNOWDEN: You’ve got to start with the white cross actually and then you do the corners.

GUARD 1: Ahh… Oh man look, I love these things. Hey, have a good weekend.

SNOWDEN: You too buddy.

*What does he remind you off, Clicky? …/lights up… The kid from ‘Third Rock From the Sun‘… As he’s walking out…*

*/shrugs… Suit yourself… /Checks time… Shit! It’s nearly time for ‘Sherlock’, Clicky… *

Due to unforeseen, technical reasons, Dear Reader, this shamble is now terminating… Many Apol! Loogies
