Today, whilst wondering what the devil I ought to write about, I was looking through one of the many draft posts which litter this blog. The title sucked, so I won’t share it with you, but I’d written one sentence:
“A man gets killed by a biro in the Bourne Identity…”
That’s all I’d written. I may have been drunk. Maybe I was leading on to some sort of witty comment about the pen being mightier than the sword… who knows.
Anyway, I’ve never seen the Bourne Identity and I was wondering if some poor soul does indeed get killed by a biro in the film. I decided to hit up big G and see.
I began to type ‘man gets’ and got this:
Hmmm – unsavoury.
Kinda made me glad I was a girl… until I repeated the search replacing man with woman:
On balance, I think it’s marginally better to be a girl. There seems to be less in the way of violent death… but there’s not much in it.
Sometimes I forget how odd the interwebz are.
