“The four most beautiful words in our common language: I told you so.” – Gore Vidal
You thought that I was gone for ever, but in fact I was just sleeping, like King Arthur, ready to return when needed. I stopped posting in large part because I had run out of ways to tell the rest of the world that it was completely wrong, and also of anecdotes to support that point of view. I return not to draw attention to the mistakes of others, but instead with the far humbler intention of pointing out that I was right all along. I would refer you to my post of April 24th 2014.
Despite what the very wise Mr Vidal said (he also noted that “There is no human problem which could not be solved if people would simply do as I advise”) my natural verecundity prohibits me from actually using the phrase in question.
“Under normal circumstances I’d say I told you so. But, as I have told so with such vehemence and frequency already the phrase has lost all meaning. Therefore, I will be replacing it with the phrase, I have informed you thusly.” – Dr Sheldon Cooper
