"He remarked that it only goes strait."
Removed. He was telling it(the way you tell an uncooperative vehicle) to "just go straight". The problem was that it would NOT go straight; it was wobbling every which way because of the huge chunk missing from it's frame.
- Actually he said "Damn Recognizer. Thing just goes straight!"OMEGATRON 18:30, January 5, 2011 (UTC)
I was under the impression Ram was calling the Recognizers "Daemons" due to their similar nature to gateway daemons. 220.127.116.11 09:05, May 14, 2016 (UTC)
- Nice! Ram's line isn't included in the Daley novelization so we don't have a canon spelling, but looking it up, its terminology comes from the Maxwell's Demon thought experiment and was coined around 1963; there would certainly have been daemons around when Ram was written, and the pronunciation is normally the same. I'd considered the line one of Ram's User colloquialisms (such as "put a cork in it") that he would have gotten from his insurance job (or his own User), but this is a nice linguistic parallel and deserves a mention in the Trivia section. 18.104.22.168 01:59, May 15, 2016 (UTC) (<- Whoops, this paragraph was me.
