Geek Checking Lileks

Lileks in today’s Screedblog:

As a wise giant said in “The Princess Bride” – “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

Lileks is a geek pop culture poser!!1!! It was the Spaniard who said that as the Dread Pirate Roberts’ ship caught up with Vizzini near the Cliffs of Insanity, not the giant!

(Pardon me as I cling futilely to the cultural touchstones of my generation of geeks; as The Princess Bride nears its 20th anniversary, I realize a whole generation of geeks grew up after it.)
