"Sir, you call yourself a physicist? You don't know the difference between a boson and Bozo! [Slap! marked-for- duel] I challenge you to meet me on the field of honor!"

A separate section where two dueling smarty pants can get their war on without hurting the innocent bystanders.

Pedants at dawn.

       //hurting the innocent bystanders// How are innocent bystanders injured in a duel of pedants? Speaking as an occasional bystander, I find the spectacle entertaining. Of course, I may be biased, as I'm frequently a participant as well.

       [Ian Tindale] The same could be said of surrealist wit, by those (not me) who don't enjoy it. It's only an injury if the thread was otherwise worth reading. So I suppose both are a form of implied criticism. Hmmm, not sure I agree with myself, there.

       Nah. Come on, a quarter of the fun in this place is watching people slog it out right here in the middle of the restaurant. This would be a bit like putting up a screen around a bad accident. [-]

       Slap! [marked-for-duel]   

       (just kidding)

       <marked-for-tagline> The difference between a boson and a Bozo. Although bison would also be good.

       Named are [not_morrison_rm] and [Alterother] - Teaming is allowed, alternately one may claim peripheral engagement and honorably retreat, but at least one must remain (or turns taken) else all honor is forfeit.   

       I call choice of arena and method of evidence - pursuit mode rampant. Appear in the idea of my choice if you can keep up...
normzone, Mar 11 2014

       I am shipping my finest glove via Overnight Mail; please slap yourself with it upon receipt.
Alterother, Mar 11 2014

       //[not_morrison_rm] and [Alterother]   

       What? I've just discovered a professional engagement in Katmandu...
not_morrison_rm, Mar 11 2014

       Anyway, I have a great get-out clause....if you were on here 4 months ago or so....
not_morrison_rm, Mar 11 2014

       [Alterother], do you have a tracking number for that glove?   

       I guess I could use one of mine to speed the process - I wonder what the etiquette is on that. I probably have to loan it to you spiritually first or something.
normzone, Mar 11 2014

       I'm up for getting my honor field! Just give me a second to take it outside.

       There is definitely a market for an internet- controllable gauntlet for remote slapping.
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 12 2014

       A gauntlet is surely a small gaunt?
MaxwellBuchanan, Mar 12 2014

       One runs a gantlet and throws down a gauntlet. English shanghais words from many lands with nothing in common but a similar sound, then forces them to shack up and share a toothbrush.
bungston, Mar 12 2014

       //a small gaunt//   

       No, it's actually a small "gant" (French for "glove", but then think about how it sounds when you say it in French). That's medieval spelling for you.

       A gaunt is actually a person who is so thin that they are like a page from a book when viewed along its edge. An entire army of these 2 dimensional gaunts can advance unseen by radar if they walk sideways.
