Ah, well, when you were complaining about the cables, you see, I thought 
you were talking about the cables.

Ah, I'm also annoyed by such claims, but I don't know what I'm supposed to 
be expecting from TED... I don't know what it's supposed to stand for (in 
terms of concepts ; I don't mean the letters TED)

Your email programme is destroying all my nonbreaking spaces and my 
doublequotes. (I use Unicode UTF-8.) For example, the six question marks 
above are, in order, openquote space, space closequote space questionmark. 
(It happens in some other situations too)

Sorry, I probably misremembered it, confusing it with another perf video I 
watched at a similar time or that sounded similar.

What does it mean to stick to ? There's a big difference between 
statements that I would contradict, and statements that I wouldn't be 
continually trying to prove by the most minimal of means just to make the 
point more obvious.

I was merely agreeing with you by saying something similar.

But I ain't no non-negative !
