Wouldn't that depend on your ability to time-travel, and/or perform a successful seance?

If a midget psychic escaped from jail would the headline read, "Small Medium at Large"?

Aren't most media quite rare, these days?

Did you get out because they gave you time off for "good behavior"?

Doesn't "very good behaviour" have a very different meaning in DJ's lexicon from that in normal people's?

Isn't that assuming I know what other people's lexicons contain?

Let's see, the guy's a billionaire for ripping off other people's work, being an insufferable bastard and refusing to share; Isn't that already the magic formula for success in the United States?
