Every problem can be solved with a laser

Nico: I'm going to be one of those guys who solves other guys' problems!
me: How are you going to do that?
Nico: I have a laser.
me: [laughing] So every problem can be solved with a laser?
Nico: No... [thinks about it a long time] Yes, every problem can be solved with a laser.

To quote Wally from the Dilbert comic: "Every problem has an engineering solution."

Hey Matt!!!

Exactly. It looks like my Nico has actually refined Wally's theorem. ;^)

Hey chanson,

Totally unrelated to this post but,

Did you realize that something about Main Street Plaza has been making it load INCREDIBLY slow? This has been going on for the last several months and is probably a primary reason I've been absent from that blog for so long.

The problem persists in both Firefox and Safari.

Don't laugh too loudly - he may turn out to be right!

Hey Seth!!!

Thanks for the info. I hadn't noticed (and I don't really do the tech part of that site), but I'll pass your comment along to Hellmut.

Hey Chaplain!!!

That's what I'm worried about. Especially considering how often kids think of their parents as a problem... ;^)

If I recall, the actual truism is "every problem can be solved with a transporter."

Hey John!!!

You may be right, but we haven't gotten to that level of (imaginary) technology at our house. Yet. ;^)

I've actually heard that every problem can be solved with duct tape, safety pins and steel wool. But I think lasers might work just as well.

Hey Aerin!!!

Yeah, I'd heard every problem can be solved with duct tape. I can imagine problems where duct tape would work better than a laser or a transporter...
