(invented conversation w/ NN)

[nn == no no; dt == do too]

nn: "what is worse REALLY?  to have no user's manual or to have one that lies?"
dt: "i just want a manual."
nn: "the user's manual is necessarily lying!"
dt: "but humans are reasonable, we can sort that out ourselves."
nn: "with no user's manual you'll be able to make up your own truths & 
lies, which is so much more precious."
dt: "that's just what i would rather not do."
nn: "this shall make no creator out of you!"

         but maybe joyce & cummings would have rather been computer programmers


         we have found a new land
         let's express ourselves like countries do
         (i.e. diplomatically)

         goodbye, junggrammatiker
