Some days I love my job.

Had to test my new coating product under hot summer conditions, which involved spending 5 mins using it and then checking it every 5 mins for 2 hours. i.e. Approx 6 mins physical work and 114 mins getting paid to sit there in the sun.

Whenever anyone walked past, I was like, "I am actually working. It may not look like I am, but I am!" :)

Regarding the question of why Rambaldi himself didn't achieve immortality if he invented it, it seems to me there are 2 possibilities presented by this finale:

1/ Maybe he died when immorality was...just...out...of...reach.
2/ Maybe he was/is immortal but somebody buried him under tons of rock.

I think, as others have suggested, that the Endgame was based on the idea that the world was beyond saving. The `solution` was to exterminate, say, 90% of the population, `pacify` another 9% and then have an elite 1%, headed up by one or two `enlightened` Immortals to guide the `Nu-humans` onto the correct path.

How anyone could possibly think it's a good idea for human lives to be governed by a vengeful immortal being who was quite happy to wipe out whole swathes of life through Fires, Great Floods and Plagues of Locusts in the name of some Greater Good is beyond me!

But then, I'm not religious. :p

I agree. Sloane killed that guy for suggesting it was about `something as small as immortality` or words to that effect. i.e. it's about much more than that.

Sometimes, you just can't avoid the double entendre.

Grocery shopping yesterday and it was one of those times when you're stuck behind someone who's feeding the 5000 when all you want is a loaf of bread. So there I am, waiting impatiently while the mountain of food before me slowly erodes away. Anyway, the guy is about to pay when I spot that there's a certain vegetable item that's got caught on the conveyor belt unnoticed by either customer or cashier. Now, I can't stand there and let him leave it behind, can I? Which forces me into saying, with a remarkably straight face, the immortal words...

"Excuse me, sir... Is that your cucumber?"

Is it wrong that I'm still laughing?

...In which we learn that while Sydney and Jack can plan intricate, detailed spy missions, taking all variables into account, they can't put together a simple plan for assembling a crib while taking into account the non-variable size of the doorway.
