Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
I'm thinking of writing a melodrama in 4 acts, with scrambling lieutenants and parts for introverts, Extroverts, Intuiters, sensors, thinkers, Feelers, perceivers,  and judges.  You guys can do the casting.

There are no sensors here that I can see :-)

A farce would seem more fitting...

Ouille!

(I'm not sure a subjunctive wasn't violated in the construction of that pun...)

Aïe! Ouille! <runs away>

From the verb "ouiller" (que j'ouille, que tu ouilles...)?

I'm going to call it

"The French Lieutenant's Omen"

Act one scene 1

Two lieutenants, one French, one Spanish are scrambling around in search of cybercriminals who have committed offences against the moral order of cyberspace...

Enter Anchovis, Kant and Fool

Kant: Doest thou have a Possible Argument in Support of a Demonstration of the Existence of God?

Anchovis: Take physics, you pimp! Expose thyself to feel what scientists feel, that thou mayst shake the superstring to them, and show the heavens more just.

Fool: This cold diary will turn us all to fools and madmen.
