( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

That quote is actually attributed to Isaac Newton and may, in fact, have been an insult. Apparently, some of Newton's work was discovered independantly by another individual, named Hooke (I forget his first name). Apparently, in a polite email feud, Newton made his comment. Hooke, however, was apparently rather short and Newton's comments may have been a nasty reference to Hooke's height and, presumably, his intellectual capacity.

Cheers,
Ovid

Update: ROTFLMAO :) Of course Newton didn't have email. I meant "mail". Heh ...
