  We all get the joke.  Nobody can do what you do and mean it.  The only
  question is at whose expense it is.  You seem to think that that question
  has only one answer.  That is my fun.  I do not object to people poking
  fun at other people.  However, it that has to be carried far enough that
  everybody sees who the real idiot is.  This is usually not possible early
  in the game when some joker gets in a good punch, but in the end, it is
  very clear to nearly everybody, usually with only a single exception.

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
