laugh!  makes me cry - why won't people even have a look at something
before casting judgment?
Maybe we should put together a site 'Ruby for Boring people' that
doesn't talk about meta-programming - jst boring java like stuff!!

And on the pedestal these words appear: 
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: 
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains: round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare, 
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
 -- Shelley
