  Quite right, I did not.  One reason for that is that is so insane
  as to question not only your mental capacity, but your sanity.
  Since you did not expect me to get it, it at least suggests that
  you are aware how insane it was.  I guess this is progress.

  This suggests that you know you are a fool and set out to prove
  otherwise by getting a degree.  Thank you for confirming it.

  They knew you well for that long?  Man, that must be good!

| BTW, that was the most shameless FUD I've ever seen.

  So it worked on you.  Oderint dum metuant.
