    No that was the bible dummmy. You put that one on a pedestal and managed to sweep the other books under the carpet.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Ohhhh, that's right. I forgot that. Was too busy enjoying the fruits of the rest of the world's labor. Much like your distant, distant ancestors.

    Will you lot never learn... that's not fruit. Jeez you'd have thought that if you're going to steal the world's accumulated good ideas that you'd get better at it. Instead you're still stealing the remote control TV and forgetting to pick up the remote. Siny box though it may be, rest assured that it's far shinier if you took the time to do it right and brought the companion product.
