Has anyone ever noticed how when you quit Word (at least on OS X), it briefly puts up a little box saying "Word is saving Normal"?
You've got to wonder, is the mythical Normal really so endangered it needs surreptitious action by Microsoft to save it? Are we weirdos really making so much headway in the world? And how exactly is Word saving it, anyway? Is it using the collective power of our CPU cycles to suppress deviance and re-establish normality in some way? Like a non-consensual version of the SETI program? And what methods is it using to accomplish that, exactly?
And most importantly, is there some kind of patch I can install to opt out of the rescue project and allow Normal to be eliminated by natural selection?
