  4. My question is this; were we expecting any better? And if so, why? Has a leopard ever changed its spots? Has a crocodile ever changed its scales? Has a … anyway.

    JB, you called me a neo-DM-prophet-of-doom when I posed the same question… Well, it was prophet-of-doomish…but…

  6. OI!!! Leave bottles out of it, what have they ever done to you?

    Well, I guess it all starts with hope, then hope turns to frustration, frustration to despair, despair to anger, anger to confrontation, confrontation to revolution. Revolution to emancipation, emancipation to hope …
