Apparently you need a monopole though. If you see one, let me know.

What's a year old, your sig or your universe?

Get a new universe, by all means. When you dictate your holy book to the inhabitants, let's try for fewer embarrasing self-contradictions this time...... :D

This makes me anticipate the coming of Spore (game). Or, it would if I had a computer with more muscle than a toaster.

Ya know, I gave up existential pondering a long time ago, but this makes me wonder:

What if there is a God and he was just some underpaid shmuck in a lab coat who created THIS universe just to see if he could do it?

(A simplification of the process, I know, but I think you get my point.)

I have been asking for a game like that for years! Can NOT wait to get my hands on it :rock: :thumbsup:

If your calculator adds your inputs 2 and 3 and gets 5, but the real problem you were trying to solve was 2 plus 2, the machine gives the wrong answer for your problem. The machine isn\'t broken and yet it got the wrong answer. It was gullible and believed your lie and behaved accordingly. - Sternwallow

Unfortunately, his company had to let him go because of the flooding incident resulting from a very badly played out bathroom prank.

I remember that one. I bet Satan is God's older brother that constantly bullies him and ruins his creation.

Or better yet the South Park episode that is a direct rip off of the Simpsons:
