Can you name anything that DOESN'T do this? Was he supposed to just hit it right the first time around? Do you expect this level of perfectionism out of people?

The Soviet Union, in a changing political clime, now doesn't think that Communism is such a hot idea. The Catholic Church, in changing political climes over the years, stopped believing the earth was the center of the universe. How about you? Are you a programmer? Are all your programs bug-free the first time around? Have you scored 100% on every test you've ever taken?

Hope I didn't sound too dictatorial, I'd just like to point this out once and for all. -- Steve Boswell | "Now drop and give me infinity pushups!" whatis@ucsd.edu | -Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey whatis@gnu.ai.mit.edu |
