Take a guess

Post#1 » Mon Jan 26, 2004 5:23 pm

okay I'm just killing a little time when I came across this:

“Are you Death?”

“It’s the scythe, isn’t it? People always notice the scythe.”

“I’m going to die?”

“Possibly.”

“Possibly? You turn up when you are possibly going to die?”

“Oh, yes. It’s quite a new thing. It’s because of The Uncertainty Principle.”

“What’s that?”

“I’m not sure?”

“That’s very helpful.”

“I think it means people may or may not die. I have to say it’s playing hob with my schedule, but I try to keep up modern thought.”

Can anyone tell me where this is from?

Apart from a Discworld novel - no.

Go on, put me out of my misery - I don't want to have to go through them all!

Don't laugh if I'm wrong but it sounds like Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey.

The 5th Elephant. Conversation between Sam Vimes and Death as Sam runs from a hungry pack of werewolves:)

Comes to think of it, the first time I read this passage it did sound a bit like Bill and Ted
