EB,
I edited the post after that, so I dont remember the exact sentence, but if my memory hasnt failed me I said "Rather than being censured, Rahul should be commended on diffusing many potentially explosive situations with his sick jokes". Diffuse means to scatter or disperse , defuse means to remove the fuse. So you can defuse a bomb and also diffuse tension (more or less the same thing ).

I dont remember coercing Tintin , Ling Wu and Junlu to read these messages. It is quite normal that discussions suddenly go off on a tangent. I dont remember any discussion here (with the exception of the legendary "Sex in the Workplace" thread) that has managed to remain on track for long.

Sahir
You don't remember anything. Clearly your memory is failing. That may be because you are passively inhaling something that Conrad is smoking. Then again, it may be because you are ageing and going senile. Try this
The fact that you don't remember coercing, does NOT prove that you did not coerce. Rather, the circumstances warrant a contrary inference. The fact is that Nobody ... and I mean NOBODY ... can dare ignore the Royal Posts of EMPEROR CLAUDIUS IGNORAMUS POMPOUS lest he be thrown to the hungry LIONS.

Rahul...
for the sake of Sahir's inability to memorize anything, how can you make Sahir remember to drink the medicine ?

Hey Conrad,
You are polluting the atmosphere at JRanch....causing memory loss(small patches of black shrivelled cells in the grey matter). The smokestack atop the barnhouse is the only smoke emitting structure on JRanch....someones keeping the home fires burning there while we are happily engaged in trivial pursuits.

Speak for yourself Eager. I never engage in trivial pursuits. I maintain a serious and professional image, as a Yoga Guru must. Some others like Stevie and Sahir need professional help.
And Conrad, do understand that Sahir needs to conserve his scarce resources. There aren't THAT many brain cells left to kill here ...
