We are currently suffering some technical difficulties with the DEFCON key server. We will rectify this as soon as possible and hope to have the situation resolved within the next hour: 2100 GMT.

Heh, you would think so, but I had a match scheduled for tonight. My girlfriend is off having dinner with one of her (female) friends ;P

I expected such a message to show up at the DEFCON lobby screen, rather than the news page...

Looks like we suffered a hard disk crash. I've moved the metaserver to another machine now, so it shoulld be working again.

Let us know if any more problems occur

All the bets

House always diagnoses the patient, in the end. But only after 3 incorrect guesses and a lot of Vicodin.

And, you forgot, somebody says something totally random that provokes his thought process. He gets that look of Ohhhh! I just figured it out because of your otherwise totally useless statement! (if somebody else said it) Then runs off to save the person from certain death, leaving the person he was talking to confused.

Like:

CUDDY: [peeved] I'm not pregnant.

HOUSE: Then what did you do wrong?

[Cuddy seems torn for a while. Finally, she goes for it.]

CUDDY: He had Addison's. Your last patient. You were right. I gave him one shot of Cortisol and he woke up like Rip Van Winkle.

HOUSE: [not buying it, to Cuddy's stomach] Ohh, you're mommy's in such trouble, she's such a liar. That's why you don't have a daddy. [Cuddy looks annoyed and surprised.] That's why she had to...

[House has an epiphany!]


[He enters the Diagnostics office, tossing his helmet to Foreman.]

HOUSE: [straight to business] How does one person end up with two different sets of DNA?

FOREMAN: We've been through this.

HOUSE: Our assumptions are faulty.

CHASE: We've confirmed two different sets of DNA. We reran the sequence.

HOUSE: I didn't say the lab work was faulty. I said our assumptions were faulty. We assumed he's a person.

FOREMAN: Of course. Aliens didn't just visit him, they replaced him. [laughs]

HOUSE: [chidingly] You're being silly. What if he's not a person? What if he's two persons?

CAMERON: I'm not getting the metaphor.

HOUSE: No metaphor. Chase, you said the mommy had in vitro fertilization, right?

CHASE: Yeah, they had trouble conceiving.

HOUSE: Kid was right all along. He was implanted with something. Back when he was young, I mean, really young. Like twelve cells young. In vitro increases the likelihood of twinning.

CAMERON: But he doesn't have a twin.

HOUSE: Not walking around. In vitro fertilization casts around 25 grand a pop. So, doctors implant two to six embryos to make sure you get your money's worth. Problem is, there's not always enough bedrooms for all the kiddies. Two brothers get stuck sharing. There's no bunk bed, so they cuddle up to keep warm and never untangle.

[As House talks, we see a CGI illustration of two embryos coming in close contact, and fusing together to form one embryo.]

[House is now speaking to the parents, in front of Clancy's room.]

HOUSE: He's two people in one. It's called Chimerism. Unfortunately, his brother's like a bad doubles partner. He just takes up space, gets in the way. Clancy's body thinks he's going to put away the easy winners, his brother just keeps swatting the balls into the net. Got to get him off the court.

Hugh Laurie needs to be shot in the face for ever doing House, shot in the face repeatedly. And also Stuart Little/any terrible American films he's been in.

Yes, it is. It's still awesome.
