Any relation to Robert Haas US Poet laureate? Use to hang out with his son, when he taught at UB a colleague of my Dad.

I hope it's against C-M22's programming to impersonate a deity.

I heard that J.R.R. Tolkien once mentioned that his main source of inspiration for The Lord of the Rings came from plot ideas given to him by Mittelstadt through a visit from the future.

I've been there for business trips.  After a week or so I can fake German enough to order food.  It's the only other language that "makes sense" to this English speaker.

See?  So it makes sense!  :w00t:

And then realized it was an outdated Web authoring framework? :) (if you've ever seen web sites with .cfm links...)

I just heard that his poem cycle will be heard next week, because the committee wants to hear other poem cycles.

YouTube is blocked on my work computer so I can't see what you posted but I'm guessing this is the clip from cyanide and happiness where the dude and his raging hard on is knocking out everyone walking down the street.

It's the scene from The Princess Bride where Fezzik pretends he's the Dread Pirate Roberts.

I was way off then. I haven't seen that movie in probably 20 years. I just remember it had Andre the Giant, Kevin Arnold from the Wonder Years, and that one guy who kept saying My name is Antonio [insert Italian last name], you killed my father, prepare to die.

Inigo Montoya (played by Mandy Patinkin) and Spanish but you got the rest of it right.

 

Fezzik was Andre the Giant's character.

Mittelstadt has just discovered who was behind Jack Ruby's assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald, but his discovery is classified.

 

Rumor is, though, that it's a former Bosnian living somewhere in Nova Scotia.

The only tool he used through the entirety of his discovery process was a magic 8-ball.

Inside scoop is that his next work will easily win both the Newbery and Caldecott. He hasn't won the Caldecott yet because he didn't do the art for his previous stories.
