On the other hand, you're replying to a chemical void with moral
reasoning. The illnesses are real, too. Misery, as I admittedly

inference from the facts, too.


PS. How will they proxy 'lines in the Encyclopedia' in the Brave
New Paperless World? If it's kilobytes of article, will they weigh
it in text or HTML or RTF? With or without links and graphics? or
will it be the next time they run this experiment, they'll just
measure genius by egosurfing the # of links to a person on AV? :-)
