Should circumstances merit the alteration of your current estimation of the situation, it is my signal honor to inform you that I stand, here, in the primary position of the queue.
You who remind me of the sugary production of diminutive hymenopterous females, know that I remain without any who possess a hegemony upon my schedule.
I, therefore, suggest in the strongest terms possible, that you deem me worthy of a casting of the die.
Should you find my services helpful, kindly communicate this estimation through my channels, for I assure you that I will remain in a convenient location.
Should you discover that you lack destination which results in situational depression,
Should you find yourself in a singular existence since the more comely avians have taken to the air.

We have the ability to practice the arts of Terpsichore, we have the ability to ambulate together a leisurely pace, along as we adhere to the stipulation that we remain in a close proximity.

This is a supernatural event that science, in conceited vanity, cannot explain,
You wish that I should conclude this correspondence upon this point, you find the possibility of assignation triggers your phobias.
Nevertheless, I am of the opinion that you prove aware,

Rest assured that you may certainly ratiocinate upon this matter, you whom I ave the temerity to liken to an infant lacking horrifying features, for I do not find that I am in the thrall of haste; yet, remain certain that, ultimately, I will convince you of the benefits of this wager with me
I am relieved that you exhibit no intentions that could lead to emotional trauma, you who still remind me of a non-repulsive neonate may dispense with any anxiety, for I am perfectly able to prevent such injury.

Thus, now, in this place in time, allow me to inform you
That my emotional and physical attractions released from the bonds of my pre-frontal cortices shall, ever more, remain of sufficient strength to withstand any general social or economic downturns that could affect our relative status in Society and vim,

You politely inform me that I have expended a considerable portion of my time in vain; however, I find that you retain a significant portion of my attention,
Nay, I lack the ability to release you from this attention,
For the severity of my emotional and physical attractions released from the bonds of my pre-frontal cortices prove not insignificant to allow such a decision.

"Dancing Queen". Nice.

I must inquire if the current existence which I assume we all share proves a true existence rather than one imagined?
Entrap'd in a significant conversion of potential into kinetic energy,
No way of avoidance of the aforementioned true existence exists.
Reverse your blepharospasm to allow the intrinsic function of your ocular apparatus,
Direct your attention לשׁמים.
And allow your parietal lobes to receive the information from V2 from V1 from the optic radiations from the chiasm from cranial nerves II.

Yet I am poor! I am merely a mendicant neophyte,
I require no outward, nor inward, gestures of empathy that diminishes me to a state worthy of pity,
For I enter with extraordinary alacrity and facility, and I exit with similar extraordinary attributes,
Raised a nearly immeasurable height, diminished a nearly immeasurable depth.
Kindly convey me where a significant difference in relative air pressures exist,
For it remains an insignificant concern for which I must extend attention.
For which I must extend attention.

Ok so today I'm obsessing over the lyrics of The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia, it having come up in a spirited game of Rock Band 3.

I realize it's not an 80s song, BUT -- it was from the 70s, and Reba M. covered it in the 90s, so it's an 80s sandwich. Also there was even an '81 cover by someone, so there.

Mainly I decided to try to figure out the two biggest questions people seem to have about the song.

- How did the sister find out about Andy's infidelity in time to kill Seth's wife and Andy before Seth got there?
- Why wasn't she able to intervene before Seth was falsely convicted?

Most of the online sources around this seemed to conclude, "Well, don't overthink it." Which is why we're here, the place for overthinking it.
He was on his way home from Candletop
Been two weeks gone and he thought he'd stop
At William's and have him a drink 'fore he went home to her
Andy Wolloe said "Hello"
And he said "Hi, what's doin', Wo?"
"Seth, sit down, I got some bad news, it's gonna hurt"
He said "I'm your best friend and you know that's right"
"But your young bride ain't home tonight"
"Since you been gone she's been seein' that Amos boy, Seth "
Well, he got mad 'n' he saw red and Andy said "Boy, don'tcha lose your head"
" 'cause to tell ya the truth, I been with her myself"
That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia
That's the night that they hung an innocent man
Well, don't trust your soul to no backwoods Southern lawyer
'Cause the judge in the town's got bloodstains on his hands
Well, Andy got scared and left the bar
Walkin' on home 'cause he didn't live far
See, Andy didn't have many friends and he'd just lost him one
Brother thought his wife musta left town
So he went home and finally found
The only thing Papa had left him, that was a gun
And he went off to Andy's house
A'skippin' through the backwoods quiet as a mouse
Came upon some tracks too small for Andy to make
He looked through the screen at the back-porch door
And he saw Andy lyin' on the floor
In a puddle of blood and he started to shake
Well, the Georgia Patrol was a'makin' their rounds
So he fired a shot just to flag 'em down
And a big-bellied sheriff got his gun and said "why'dya do it?"
And the judge said "Guilty" in a make-believe trial
And slapped the sheriff on the back with a smile
Said' supper's waitin' at home and I gotta get to it"
That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia
That's the night that they hung an innocent man
Well, don't trust your soul to no backwoods Southern lawyer
'Cause the judge in the town's got bloodstains on his hands
Well, they hung my brother before I could say
The tracks he saw while on his way
To Andy's house and back that night were mine
And his cheatin' wife had never left town
And that's one body that'll never be found
See, little sister don't miss when she aims her gun
That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia, oh-oh-aah
That's the night that they hung an innocent man, ah-huh-unh
Well, don't trust your soul to no backwoods Southern lawyer
'Cause the judge in the town's got bloodstains on his hands
Here are my answers:

The sister spotted Andy and Seth's wife together the same night Seth was on his way home. That's how she knew. The timeline: she waited until Andy left for William's, then shot Seth's wife. She took care of the body while Andy was with Seth at William's confessing. Andy went to his home, Seth went to his own, acquiring his gun.

The sister went to Andy's and shot him before Seth arrived, but she heard someone coming before she could take care of the body. So she skedaddled. Not expecting Seth to take the blame, perhaps not even knowing he had arrived back in town, she lays low for a while, and comes back to find out he'd been executed already. That's why she wasn't able to stop it.

So, we may all rest easy now, that case is solved.

Backwoods Southern law is a legitimate specialty. Fact. :wink:
