what would you say...ya do here?
i deal with the g*d damn customers so the engineers don't have
sopris: no really,
what are you doing here? tell us as if someone doesn't know...wait...they
don't, so what are you doing here?
nate: i guess
the time and place is irrelevant but whatever it is and whatever
we are doing "here", chances are I'm doing it better
let's get right to it then...
so you've got 3 light bulbs in a room with no windows.
3 unmarked switches outside. they are not within reach of the door.
the door is closed and you can only open it once.
how do you tell me which switch goes to which bulb?
nate: can i
turn on all three?
sopris: if you
think that will help.
nate: so i can
open the door and flip one switch?
yes, but only once.
nate: so what
you're asking me is which switch goes to which light bulb.
is the question, yes.
nate: so how
will you know what light i'm talking about?
just say i know the answer, so i will know if you are lying.
yer gonna do is, <laughing> pull the cover off the light
switch, expose the wires and lick the open circuit and then you'll
know, that the light bulb is your face!
that is correct.
got us much closer to the original question...so let's try it
a different way. what did you do today?
nate: i was
at the track all day.
nate: i was
mostly...ah...mostly driving...but there was a point there at
the end where i totally dragged someones reality through the
okay, well what does that mean?
just say anything's possible.
shutch yer mouth!
then, any parting thoughts?
a mirror is a time machine...think about that...when you look
into a mirror you are looking at the past.
