    Yes folks, it has finally happened. TheIronDuke has weakened and admitted to the world at large and ARRSE in particular that, on occasion, he can be "wrong".

    Something we all thought we would never see in our lifetimes I know, but there you are, in black and white, a full confession. Go here to read this dramatic fall from Grace.
     
  2. Its monday, you're up a bit early, waiting for the corner shop to open so you can get a few bottles of cooking brandy in?

    Is this the definition of a "call out thread" in interweb speak
     
  3. In the grand scheme of things does it matter, except to some really, really dull people?
     
  4. I was wrong once: I thought I was wrong but I was actually right.
     
  5. Where did he admit to being wrong?

  8. Any help?
     
  9. Hope you enjoy the lecture, FMP. I applied for tickets some weeks ago but they were sold out. Any other Arrsers going to this event??
     
  10. Bollocks, it's 12.17. I should have saved this gem to read just before I went to bed. Should help with my insomnia.

    It's clearly a trap, A-Y. Tread very carefully and remember to look up. Everybody forgets to look up.

    TheIronDuke is never wrong. How can he be - he lives on an alternative plane of reality to the rest of us. I have long thought that he is an inhabitant of Discworld and that Terry Pratchett should be classified as a non-fiction author rather than a novelist. How else would Pratchett get all the details correct without TheIronDuke advising him?

    Similarly, this explains why TheIronDuke has taken up book reviews. He has booted the Orang-outang into touch and is now running the Discworld library. This means TheIronDuke has access to magic! This is a deeply worrying development. I for one am busy digging a large shelter at the bottom of my garden and laying in a two year stock of tin foil hats.

    He'll never take me alive...
