You are correct young man (and I have no idea of your age, so don't
take offense) - this is indeed the intellectual diahorrea thread,
where people vomit (not so thinly) veiled insults at each other,
no-one prepared to give an inch and we are all just eagerly awaiting
the Inquisition to appear, with their fanatical devotion to the Pope,
red cloaks, fear and element of surprise.

Also, there is no chance of anyone seeing the light, as all the
flammable goods have already been hurled at the bonfire. And the
lightbulb at the end of the tunnel was a cheap one, so that popped
about five seconds after the thread started.

I'd not waste my time if I were you. :)
