    As a slightly related anecdote... In college, I would have an occasional professor who at the beginning of the semester would pass around index cards and ask us students to answer a few basic questions about ourselves, such as our names, majors and what our goals were after graduating. I began to answer the last question with a stock reply: "To build an army of killer war robots with which to unleash my fury upon the world." Without exception every one of those professors went out of their way to tell me how much they enjoyed that comment. Their lives will now be spared of course...

      Of course. That's only right.

      HTH,
