    Smart sanctions, I guess...

    "Untruth" sounds eerily like "undead", therefore I choose "truth" (which I restrict to statements that can be analytically deconstructed or empirically falsified).

    Er...do I have to choose?

    Tarot cards. Only because the words trigger Jane Seymour.

    guilt

    Watching a documentary about a very fat Mexican on The Learning Channel or a South Park repeat?

    (Obviously, I am too cool and busy for this choice to apply to me, it's just my, err, girlfriend needs help choosing.)

    South Park. Cartman may be grossly fat, but at least he's animated.

    Knowledge. I can't take happiness seriously since that bit in Kenneth Williams' diary where he's at a dinner party and someone asks the French Minister's wife what she most wants from life and she replies "a penis" ("happiness" with the h dropped and each syllable pronounced with equal stress as is the French way).

    Googolplex. Infinity requires further definition.

    countable (it is an untruth that the undead are uncountable).

    Cold flat in Chinatown. Better food and exotic bookstores.

    Prose. That is what most modern poetry sounds like, anyway.

    Not sure if those aren't the same thing either. This is after a year of Euclid.

    Everybody Wants to Rule the World. My favourite Tears For Fears song.

    OT: Whatever happened to Dido anyway?

    Mad World (Tears For Fears version) or Mad World (Donnie Darko version)

    Greatest symphonist of the twentieth-century: Shostakovich or Sibelius?

    After Amy Winehouse burst on to the scene Dido looked a bit dull.
