Yep. Once upon a time I was just average intelligence. Then it dawned on me that I could make other people feel really dumb if I was a lot smarter. Voila! I have a friend who decided to be taller just to make short people feel crummy, too. And another who has 20/20 vision so he can piss off the people who wear glasses!

Do I detect a hint of sarcasm? Are you saying that I shouldn't hate you just because you're smart? Smart people, bah! Always needling me with their unrefutable logic.

Well my inner ignoramous is done venting for now, but beware lest you disturb its fitfull sleep again!

How about someone who has 20/16 vision, like me (in my right eye only though)?

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

I think that is a pretty cool game, although I'm currently stuck on level 8. 4 took me a bit as well, but 8 really has me stumped.

Wait till you get to 11. That had me stumped for ages. I don't remember the solution anymore.

Very good. Now I just have to get past level 11 as well (level 8 was sooooooooo easy, eh, H Humbert).

Edited to add: Wow, this was my 100th post. And it had an important message as well. Ehhh........... Maybe not. (Apart from that maybe I should really have said straight away that I quoted Homer)

I've worked out one possible solution to this puzzle. Now I have to see if Dave likes my answer as much as I like it.

Oh well, it wasn't the correct solution after all. Back to the drawing board.
