no, the man said, a different man this time, we have to pull the plug first, something we currently contemplate doing.

to contemplate
  • look at thoughtfully; observe deep in thought; “contemplate one’s navel orange”
  • consider as a possibility; “i have always contemplated leaving school and taking up the art of art forgery. well that would have been swell. can you see me there, in the world of arts? can you? i certainly can. there’s always a possiblility.”
  • study: think intently and at length, as for spiritual purposes; “he is meditating in his sleep”
  • chew over: reflect deeply on a subject; “i forgot about the events of the afternoon”; “philosophers have speculated on the question of food for thousands of years”; “the artist must stop to observe and start to observe”. fullstop.

make it so.
