... I've just been out-nerded for a joke. I am thoroughly impressed. Come on, Schroedinger's Cat? I owe you a muffin or a drink or something.

Schroedinger's Cat is one of my favourite ways to fuck with people's minds. Used it all through high school.

That's true, but the problem, as you said, is that I could get better, more efficient customer service in Maccas. Our train breaks down, we don't find out until five minutes after it's supposed to have arrived - despite it breaking down an hour ago. There's a fire at MC station - they shut the entire loop down, and expect everyone to deal with it.

Also their public service announcements are about as friendly as a flying tomahawk, especially the "apologies" for delayed or cancelled trains.

Otherwise, they do a good job of putting up with idiots like Lynne Kosky.
Yeah, this is all true. Though, to be fair, underground systems can be very volatile and the only responsible thing to do would be to shut down the Loop with a fire at Central. You would be risking even further calamity if you kept anything running. At least Melbourne has the tram network to help with some of the slack, and at least get people down to Flinders Street Station.

Suppermassive Black Hole is fucking awesome.

You missed the shows in January though, they were both almost better.

Citzen Erased, The Extended awesomeness of Assassin.

Also, when they had that technical fuck up in November the had Ruled By Secrecy on the setlist, and they didn't play it. that is probably my favorite song from Absolution!
I've always despised Supermassive Black Hole, you know this! Bellamy's vocals sound hideous and the music is just bad.

Honestly, I'm glad we missed out on Ruled By Secrecy. It's never really stood out to me, while we got Apocalypse Please instead, which is one of my favourites.

I think that was the height of my mental powers for today, if not the week. It's all down hill from here, folks...

I never used it for mindfucking, personally, and if I think about it too much I get a headache, but yeah.

Then again, the other half of my brain thinks it's all bullshit. Seems like pure conceit to imagine that reality has to be determined/conjured into existence by a pair of sentient eyeballs. What, nothing existed before consciousness evolved? (or any eyeballs, if it's just observation that's required.) Such egos humans have....

No. He ruined an already bad prog band, released even worse solo music, and gave birth to Phail Collins.

I don't understand why everyone else in all the other states pays out Melbourne's tram network. It's honestly the best idea ever. Better than anything that Sydney's ever done.
