The Panetta Burns plan does exist; I first read it about more than three weeks ago. It's pretty off-the-radar, though, so I'm hardly surprised that neither anybody in here nor the article writer have heard of it. But that was back before a quarter of all people started to notice it. It's getting pretty played out now, a lot of people I know have moved on to more interesting and unique plans. The Gromley-Hinckson, for example, or if you really want something obscure, Kanes-Tyrex or Indigo-Montoya.

The Panera-Bread plan calls for a charred sandwich and bland soup. I cannot support this debacle.

cubic_spleen: I'm fully in support of the Weyland-Yutani plan, which involves taking off and nuking the entire site from orbit. It is, after all, the only way to be sure.


Actually, that's the Ripley-Hicks plan. The Weyland-Yutani plan is much worse.

You like that statistic, don't you?

I do.

Why?

Because 9% think it's too high, AND SHOULDN'T BE CUT! 9% of respondents could not fully
get their arms around the question. There should be another box you can check for, "I
have utterly no idea what you're talking about. Please, God, don't ask for my input."

I imagine the Indigo-Montoya plan involves looking for the 6 fingered man.

I think you meant "prepare to dye."

You keep saying that word, "plan". I do not think it means what you think it means.

MorrisBird: How many people do you know who own computers, have immediate access to the web and, yet, ask you inane questions that they could answer themselves with a ten second google search? Yeah, I thought so. Me too.


When I was a teenager I naively thought that in the future people wouldn't espouse incorrect facts because they could easily verify them on the internet. How wrong that was. I had a guy telling me last week that the unemployment rate in Saudi Arabia is 0%.

Not taken in account apparently: the fact that a percentage of the American population have a negative opinion of Leon Panetta and would oppose any plan he is associated with, regardless of its content.

mamoru: Your math is correct, and the situation is absurd as hell. But subby did specifically say "25% view the Panetta-Burns plan favorably, to which colinspooky was referring, I'm sure. ;)
