Hi, I’m Manu, a biking web developer. I’ve been writing on here since June 2002 about a bunch of different topics. My favorite posts are tagged with ✪.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, plothole or plot error is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot. Such inconsistencies include such things as illogical or impossible events, and statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Thanks for reading!

House, M.D.

à chaque année, sa série préférée. En 2005 c’était Lost, en 2006-2007 Heroes, et maintenant c’est House, M.D. J’adore le personnage et ceux qui me connaissent comprendront probablement pourquoi. Un extrait de l’épisode 1, saison 1:

Cameron: Why did you hire me?
House: Does it matter?
Cameron: Kinda hard to work for a guy who doesn’’t respect you.
House: Why?
Cameron: Is that rhetorical?
House: No, it just seems that way because you can’’t think of an answer. Does it make a difference why I think I’’m a jerk? The only thing that matters is what you think. Can you do the job?
Cameron: You hired a black guy because he had a juvenile record.
House: No, it wasn’’t a racial thing, I didn’’t see a black guy. I just saw a doctor… with a juvenile record. I hired Chase cause his dad made a phone call. I hired you because you are extremely pretty.
Cameron: You hired me to get into my pants?!
House: I can’t believe that that would shock you. It’’s also not what I said. No, I hired you because you look good; it’’s like having a nice piece of art in the lobby.
Cameron: I was in the top of my class.
House: But not THE top.
Cameron: I did an internship at the Mayo Clinic.
House: Yes, you were a very good applicant.
Cameron: But not the best?
House: Would that upset you, really, to think that you were hired because of some genetic gift of beauty not some genetic gift of intelligence?
Cameron: I worked very hard to get where I am.
House: But you didn’’t have to. People choose the paths that grant them the greatest rewards for the least amount of effort. That’s the law of nature, and you defied it. That’’s why I hired you. You could have married rich, could have been a model, you could have just show up and people would have given you stuff. Lots of stuff, but you didn’’t, you worked your stunning little ass off.
Cameron: Am I supposed to be flattered?
House: Gorgeous women do not go to medical school. Unless they’’re as damaged as they are beautiful. Were you abused by a family member?
Cameron: No!
House: Sexually assaulted?
Cameron: No.
House: But you are damaged, aren’’t you?
[Cameron hesitates, and in that moment her pager goes off]
Cameron: I have to go.
