Wow, it is getting crowded up here! Soon we might need a bigger round table.


Most of us won't live long enough to have a chance to sit at this table ! And anyway, you all, venerable Knights, will have reached 100k long before !

Funnily enough the following went through my head today:

 

The "Knights of NI" owes at least some of it's reason for existing to a great Monty Python film called "The Life of Brian".

 

There is a character called Dennis in that film but he's not a knight, he's a peasant.  He gets harrassed by the knights of the round table.  No, in fact he gets "repressed".

 

 

Spoiler

ARTHUR: Well, I am king!
DENNIS: Oh king, eh, very nice. And how d'you get that, eh? By exploiting the workers! By 'anging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society. If there's ever going to be any progress with the--
WOMAN: I didn't know we had a king. I thought we were an autonomous collective.
DENNIS: You're fooling yourself. We're living in a dictatorship. A self-perpetuating autocracy in which the working classes--
DENNIS: I told you. We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week. But all the decision of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting-- By a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs,-- But by a two-thirds majority in the case of more major--

WOMAN: Well, how did you become king then?
ARTHUR: The Lady of the Lake,... [angels sing] ...her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [singing stops] That is why I am your king!
DENNIS: Listen, strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
ARTHUR: Be quiet!
DENNIS: Well, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
ARTHUR: Shut up!
DENNIS: I mean, if I went 'round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!
ARTHUR: Shut up, will you. Shut up!
DENNIS: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system.
ARTHUR: Shut up!
DENNIS: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help! I'm being repressed!
ARTHUR: Bloody peasant!
DENNIS: Oh, what a give-away. Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That's what I'm on about. Did you see him repressing me? You saw it, didn't you?

 

 Any deeper relevance to the Forums?  Relevance to having to earn the "knight of NI" status through hard work, being competent and willing to help others instead of it simplly being endowed?  Nah, it's just a blatant excuse to quote some more Monty Python.

Are you sure it is from "The Life of Brian"?  Me thinks it's from "The Holy Grail".

Hmm.

 

I don't know why on earth "the Life of Brian" was in my head.

 

I take a bow  in your direction and humble request forgiveness for my error.

 

Shane.
