"'Alan Smithee' is a common pseudonym for directors whose film was clearly taken away from her/him and recut heavily against her/his wishes in ways that completely altered the film.
The Directors Guild contract generally does not permit a director to remove her/his name from films. The Directors Guild has been striving for decades to establish the director as the "author" of a film, and part of getting the credit for the successes is taking the blame for the failures. The only exceptions they make are cases in which a film was clearly taken away from a director and recut heavily against her/his wishes in ways that completely altered the film. Directors are required to appeal to the Guild in such cases. If the appeal is successful, their name is replaced by Alan Smithee. So if you notice a film directed by Alan Smithee, it is certain it is not what its director intended, and likely that it is not any good."

"Most plans are critically flawed by their own logic. A failure at any step will ruin everything after it. That's just basic cause and effect. It's easy for a good plan to fall apart. Therefore, a plan that has no attachment to logic cannot be stopped. The success or failure of any given step will have no impact on the macro level."

"White and gold robes, A cross on my back, preaching brotherhood and honor? Yeah, you'll see me doing that as soon as pigs fly."
-Jack five years ago.

"White and gold robes, a sword in the shape of a cross, and I find myself lecturing my enemies on brotherhood and honor in the middle of a battlefield. Either I was clairvoyant and didn't know it, or this is karma repaying me for being a sarcastic @ss."
-Jack after Aredium's return to Korhal at large.

Good god it has been a while since I wrote that.

Edit: Just so this isn't just a sudden and unrelated "hi I'm back,"

Oprative1: "I'm not saying I don't believe you, but it's easier to convince ground pounders that threats exist than it is for politicians."

-A Battle of Wills
Knowledge is realizing the street is one-way, wisdom is looking both directions anyway.
When people are screaming and running one direction I find it's best not to question that and assume they have more current information than I do. I don't like learning things the hard way.

They say the greatest honor is to die for your country. While that's great, I'd much rather make the other guy die for his country.
