Judge's gavel (thanks waugsqueke) blows up when struck, and everybody has a good chuckle.

Much discussion here on the user deletion aspect of HB life http://www.halfbake...27s_20waugsqueke_3f
Appropriately, some of it has been deleted. [waugsqueke, Oct 10 2002]

       I was running on caffeine and no sleep last night, I couldn't remember if it was "gabel" or "gavel"

       What if judge is presiding over case involving Pirates?

       That's the best idea I've ever heard!

       What a pity, this topic has been completely gutted. Is there a strong reason to maintain the 'I'm in a huff and I'm taking all my toys with me' system?
General Washington, Oct 09 2002
  

       Yes. The HalfBakery is nothing if not libertarian.

       I don't follow. Are you trying to say, 'Language is property'? And doesn't that therefore make the HB principle the traditionally conservative one of 'each man is sovereign in his own property'? Wouldn't libertarians consider such things communal if not exactly free?   

       Or are you saying it would be unjustifiably 'centralizing' to appropriate users' contributions to the HB commonwealth -- smack of coercion, and all that?   

       Either way, I'm not sure I buy it.
General Washington, Oct 09 2002
  

       Has this been discussed at length elsewhere?
General Washington, Oct 10 2002
  

       General.. yes, see link. I rather like the effect. AA's response to 'wax's pirates question is serendipituous.
waugsqueke, Oct 10 2002
  

       thankin you, waugs.
General Washington, Oct 10 2002
  

       Ah yes, I see (& agree with) the reasoning now. In a nutshell, it's: Get a life.
General Washington, Oct 10 2002
  

       Here come the Judge.   

       where's Afro when the place resembles quicksand?
po, Apr 19 2003
  

       Somewhere else, laughing.
snarfyguy, Apr 19 2003
  

       farewell Afro. come back soon.
po, May 18 2003
  

       Funny.
