So, knowing the question was coming we thought about our answer. Should we lie? "Yea, we heard it -- you really nailed it, great post!" Or, "Yes, indeed, we did listen to it. What's on your mind?"
But, we opted for the truth. "No. We knew you were going to ask us that question." Knowing what was coming next we agreed to listen and make a post.
Just finished listening. Convinced now more than ever of our wisdom during the first Gulf War over ten years ago. After two minutes and 51 seconds, one of us thought it was over and went for the OFF button -- the rest shouted, "No, we must listen to seven or eight minutes."
At 6:24, three more joined around the computer to insist we turn it off NOW. We perservered until seven minutes and twenty-one seconds where, by concensus, we turned it off.
In the silence, with the echo of ". . . they can dream of voting . . ." still hazing the air, in unison we shouted -- "STAIRS!"
We then realized we needed to complete our work in progress -- TODAY.
