I came across this little gem the other day, and of course thought I should bring it to your attention.

...And now part of me wants to live in a world where this could actually be seen on TV.  I shudder to think what this says about my mental state.

[Reads through it, stony faced as ever, then comes up snickering a bit by the end.] Hrn. I'm torn between being enthralled and never wanting to watch television again. Of course, if Socrates were actually featured on the Home Shopping Network, such explanations would... Practically cancel out the need for such a channel.

It does unfold like a trainwreck, doesn't it? It's hard to look away.

...You make an excellent point, and now you have me thinking about other possible misuses of the Socratic Method. Curses!

Oh, and while I'm thinking about it: I have a...proposition for you, that I think you might be amenable to. Let's talk about it in a more private setting, yes?

[Chuckles lightly.] Could eliminate a great deal of things simply by the virtue of reasoning them out. Probably still need them for commonplace idiots though.

[Looks intrigued by Veidt's... Propositions, as well as his wording.] Hurm. [He nods and decides to follow the other away to said private setting.]
