SE member Lightness Races in Orbit has a very nice turn of phrase as a username and I'm wondering where it originates.
I can't find an existing usage of it by googling. All of the top results are that user in various ways.
Why don't I ask the user directly?
SE doesn't allow direct messages so I can't ask them directly here.
Their blog does not have an email address listed.
I don't have the other communications channels that they do list; Facebook, Twitter, etc.
