It annoys me so much that another user replied back with the quotes from
the "Wrath of Khan", which quoted Herman Meville in "Moby Dick". 

If you'd like I could send it to you so you'd have a nice script
suitable for printing out so you could scare the family and dogs while
Dad snarls invectives at it and turns the air around you blue. That's
what I do with that Damned Whale. Makes me feel a helluva lot better for
it, too. 

It gives me the chance to be quite the artiste, posing and gesturing
while trying out different cadences and tones during the rendition of
it. God, that would make one helluva video for YOUTUBE. I'll wait until
my performance is perfected. With Evolution, I'll get plenty of chances.

My father, Victor Moore (Vic) used to say:
"There are two Great Sins in the world...
..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
