All that was ultimately done was to give GitHub a free social good headline that they can parade around while keeping things like ICE collaboration on the down-low

Doctor Who Time Crash, gay joke 

"The Master? Does he still have that rubbish beard?"
"No! No beard this time. Well, he does have a wife."
Beautiful line. Wish I could find a good quality version to replace mine that's messed up.

That moment when you implement the TCP handshake over messages to test to make sure a service is up.

"I know. Is that enough?"
"It is not. Let's go."
