What's the difference between an original bill, a replica, and an Andy Warhol?

Yes
If the answer is Donald J Trump then it must have been a fucking stupid question.

The difference is No, there is no difference in principle between these three items.

Everything in the world is exactly the same.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

Then that meaningful difference between things is understood as the price exacted by their respective rates of exchange...  Wait...  I see what we just did there...

But some viewers of Stargate:SG1 believe that the pyramids are early Earth civilization attempts to imitate Goa'uld Ha'tak motherships.

Lets not jump to any hasty conclusions here.

If Startate is involved, I say we should jump to conclusions as fast as possible. Except for the seasons after Richard Dean Anderson left.

This is very true, especially the last part.

If you want to talk about fabricated history, I vote the existence of Stargate: Universe.  Complete fabrication, never happened.

Frankly, it's an embarassment that anyone believed it in the first place.
Really, don't you see, it's just all a simulation :lulz:

I keep having trouble with the "A", making all my ties seem like lies,  antsy allegiances, or something.

More than tangentially related to some of the shit I was thinking when I replied upthread

Checking that out - my inspiration was probably R.A.W. And Karl Hess: Subversion for Fun...  It's also on YouTube - can't pull the link tho.

[Ed.  Finished first episode - so cool - had flitted past the series before b/c idunno, so glad for the recommendation - perfect for me right now]

Cool. I know what I'm going to watch in the morning then.

ETA Wow its really freaky to have a talking head suddenly drop an example you've been thinking about for a few hours.
Also glad you are enjoying the Berger. I vaguely remember it from when it was first broadcast and then had the book on a university reading list back when. You have no idea how cool that guy was back in the day.
