20:58:04 [me]: *moves to Iceland*

20:58:15 [Tristan]: what, you can do that just by saying it over IM? :)

20:58:27 [me]: hey, it was a performative sentence :)

20:58:40 [Tristan]: iceland has the 7th highest GDP per capita, apparently

20:58:46 [Tristan]: performative?

20:58:52 [Tristan]: (is that a word?)

20:59:04 [me]: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Performative

20:59:08 [me]: wikipedia thinks so :)

21:00:20 [Tristan]: hm, interesting, so by saying "*moves to iceland*" it actually caused you to move to iceland? :)

21:01:15 [Tristan]: *moves to iceland*

21:01:20 [Tristan]: nah, didn't seem to work :(

21:01:29 [Tristan]: obviously not a perfomative in my dialect :)
