    I was aware of the conclusion and the first quote, I just didn't remember the second quote (and still don't recall it really). But I thought that like I mixed references, this was another case of mixed references, with the second potentially being of a book/comic/film etc. reference I wasn't aware of.

    I guess it's likely because the first quote is so iconic it has been repeated and referenced in many things in the years since, that if the second has been referenced too I (and possibly others) have completely missed it. I can't remember how many times I actually watched the first Terminator film (and the same for any of the sequels) anyway though, let alone when the last time might have been.

    I guess it just didn't have as much appeal to me as Robocop did.

    Easily remedied with another quote... Parts in bold should be read in an Arnie accent:


    Gunshop scene, first film...

    "The 12-gauge auto-loader"
    "That's ltalian. you can go pump or auto"
    "The 45 long slide with laser sighting"
    "These are new. We just got them in. That's a good gun. The beam comes on - you put the red dot where you want the bullet to go. You can't miss.... Anything else?"
    "Phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range"
    "Hey, just what you see, pal"
    "The Uzi nine millimetre"

    At 40watts they might need to add a few extra bulbs!

    That's just the phased pulse that triggers the plasma bolt... in which case 40 watts is ridiculously high. It's tantamount to pocket artillery!

    Seriously, I don't even vape at 40w.....

    40W vaping - the easy way to stop coronavirus.

    Nah, that only makes little clouds.
    120w on a dripper generally keeps people away, though!!

    Repurpose it as a mobile disinfectant sprayer. Hold one in each hand.

    If you want to vape bleach and blow clouds of it around, you go right ahead...
    I'll stick with quoting movies and folding data, thanks.

    Well you are the one bringing up vaping with a 120W vaper,not me,so more cloud production in you case - just beware of more localised rain! I will stick with not vaping personally,not my cup of tea although YMMV.

    I'm not the one trying to sacrifice lives in order to repurpose it for something it's not intended for and would not be in any way effective either, though. You want it repurposed, you get to breathe in the bleach.
