I know it's time to stop researching for the night when...

...I start laughing at the footnotes in a District Court opinion:
This Court first considered calling the motions a "phalanx" of motions. However, the phalanx was a tight group of Greek infantry with an impenetrable shell of soldiers' shields and a lethal extension of their lances capable of piercing the strongest of armies. Out of respect for the Greeks, this Court will not liken these motions to the Greek phalanx. So plethora, not phalanx.
Thurmond v. Compaq Computer Corp., 2000 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 21880

I'm clearly not in my right mind.
