Torture: not just fun, but effective

Fritz Schranck has come up with a plan for getting Khalid Shaikh Mohammed to talk, a plan which involves, among other things, essence of spirit duplicator, algebra, and Ben-Gay®.

Of course, I would just as soon not know where Fritz picked up this particular area of expertise, but if his recommendations are half as mind-warping as they appear to be, the problem won't be getting our captive to talk — it will be getting him to shut up.

Dammit, Charles! Don't shock us like that! This flip-flop will take several days to get accustomed to...

Unless I'm hallucinating...?

We're going to make the Shaikh read this over three successive days and see if his eyes bug out.

By the way, that was comment #1000. Don't you feel proud? :)

And people thought that I would never amount to anything...I showed 'em, eh...!
