Plot summary is incorrect
The plot summary conflates events in the book and puts things in the wrong order. I'm too lazy to correct it, but someone should make it right. (Unless that's intentional to expose high school students who don't actually read the book, in which case I heartily approve.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:34, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
To the commenter above: "I'm too lazy to correct it, but someone should make it right." That is not how Wikipedia works. Personally, I've read the Jonathan Hoag story two or three times over the years. I just visited this page after I discovered that Hoag was referenced in a Charles Stross Laundry novel. The Hoag plot summary sounds about right to me. Do you really expect me, or anyone else, to magically figure out what *you* think is wrong with it, and then waste our valuable time fixing it to please you? What an attitude.... 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:29, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
- I replied at that location.... the theory is interesting but I think it's unlikely. — Lawrence King (talk) 08:58, 4 April 2007 (UTC)

Twelfth or thirteenth floor of the Acme building and Guy Noir?
Does anyone have any evidence of a connexion between the twelfth and thirteenth floors of the Acme building, the former housing the office of Guy Noir, the latter of Jonathan Hoag? As of 9 July 2013, there are no Google hits for "floor of the Acme Building" "Guy Noir" "Jonathan Hoag".
- Seems a bit unlikely to me. Acme is a pretty common name for "generic business" (Wile E. Coyote patronized them), and if I can indulge in personal speculation, I just don't quite see a lefty down-home populist paying homage to a technophile libertarian. The other direction I could maybe believe (Heinlein didn't limit himself too much) but someone would have needed a time machine. --Trovatore (talk) 11:16, 10 January 2013 (UTC) I now see from your comment above that you have a time machine, so who knows. --Trovatore (talk) 11:21, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
