No, because I'm a liar and project my own world views onto other people 
in a pitiful attempt to prevent people from seeing what a disgusting 
human being I really am.  That and I totally didn't think you'd see it 
that way.

Every opinion is worth something, so long as it's something you want to 
hear, eh.  You know, you'd make an excellent comic book writer, and I 
mean that.

You know, I really am beginning to think your definition of "objective" 
is the same as your definition of "subjective," because you keep using 
examples that go something like: it's a hard-fast rule that things are 
this way, unless they aren't.  Really, which is it?
