    Svidler is a man of culture, I see (45:50)

    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Some of my fav's from a recent re-read of Carpe Jugulum:

    Code:
    [Granny Weatherwax] 'Thereís no greys, only white thatís got grubby. Iím surprised you donít know that. And sin, young man, is when you treat people as things. Including yourself. Thatís what sin is.í
    [Mightily Oats]  ĎItís a lot more complicated than that -í
    [GW] ĎNo. It ainít. When people say things are a lot more complicated than that, they means theyíre getting worried that they wonít like the truth. People as things, thatís where it starts.Ē
    &

    Code:
    ďLet the Queen do the fighting cos if you lose the King, you've lost everything.Ē
    &

    Code:
    Agnes hadn't seen a mob like this before. Mobs, in her limited experience, were noisy. This one was silent. Most of the town was in it, and to Agnes's surprise they'd brought along many of the children.
    It didn't surprise Perdita. They're going to kill the vampires, she said, and the children will watch.
    Good, thought Agnes, that's exactly right.
    Perdita was horrified. It'll give them nightmares!
    No, thought Agnes. It'll take the nightmares away. Sometimes everyone has to know the monster is dead, and remember, so they can tell their grandchildren.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Svidler again showing himself to be a man of culture in WC game 8 coverage.

    They had got onto whiskeys, and he remarked that for the second time in their coverage that they had done so, and for the second time resultantly Magnus would go on to win. To even things out in fairness to Ian, he mused, they should start drinking Klatchian coffee instead.
