You ARE a masochist, ain't you? :'( .  And you don't even follow your 
own signature line:

My father, Victor Moore (Vic) used to say:
"There are two Great Sins in the world...
..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome."

in? Can you give you me the book where this explained?"
