Too Early on a Friday morning...

Jennifer (Endeavor Consulting) says:
So, is your mobile MSN defunct?
Brendan says:
yeah...the old account is kaput. I'll be setting up mobile access on the new one soon.
Jennifer (Endeavor Consulting) says:
Ok. I show it online.
Should I just delete the entry?
Brendan says:
yep....delete it, kill it, and cut off its head. Its the only way to be sure.
Jennifer (Endeavor Consulting) says:
I thought that was "nuke if from orbit"
Brendan says:
well there is that, but its so much easier to find a sharp bit of metal than a nuclear weapon.
Jennifer (Endeavor Consulting) says:
Point conceded.
Brendan says:
I'm all about the path of least resistance.
Jennifer (Endeavor Consulting) says:
But it's messier. You know?
From orbit, you don't get blood splattered on you.
Brendan says:
No question, but there's also other factors to consider. Maybe its a particularly nice bit of planet that would be nuked along with the target? Maybe you'd want to go back someday?
Blood, at least, is biodegradeable.
Jennifer (Endeavor Consulting) says:
But, where's the ka-boom? The earth shattering ka-boom!
Brendan says:
Very cathartic, I'll admit. But to quote mencken: "Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats." THere is a certain thrill to the visceral as well.
Jennifer (Endeavor Consulting) says:
Ah. I see. We're coming from the POV of different pleasures. You're is visceral. Mine is catastrophic. Both 'nuking from orbit' and 'cutting the head off' are appropriate ways of 'being sure.'
Yours, even.
Brendan says:
I'm glad we can appreciate differing tactics. All I ask is the chance to get clear of dealing with the problem in my way, before you deal with it in yours.
Jennifer (Endeavor Consulting) says:
Well, I could go the old fashioned way and just hire you to take care of MY problem YOUR way. My problem is gone. You get your visceral thrill and money to boot. Win-win.
Though, it now occurs to me that my problem is you... But, not really you. The old you. The false you. So, wouldn't you want to take care of my problem for free because it is a matter of honor on your part?
Brendan says:
There are quite a few philopshical ramifications to this.
Jennifer (Endeavor Consulting) says:
Quite. I would love to hear your view on this.
Brendan says:
Were I not about to head in to work, I'd love to give that a spin. Sadly, I must ensure kittens are placated with gooshyfood, and vacate the premises.
Jennifer (Endeavor Consulting) says:
Oh, alright. I'll just delete the old you. Though, next time, you won't get off so easy. However, kittens trump philosophy.
