| Come on, guys.

  Why do you think it was ignored at first?  Jokes are never harmless,
  however, and if someone wants to make them harmful, they will succeed.

  I have not seen you respond well to "jokes" about yourself, yet.

  The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture
  has taught you.  Your future observations, conclusions, and beliefs are
  more important to you than those in your past ever will be.  The world is
  changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
