I accidentally double posted my thread about ReactOS, so I'm editing this one to be the thread about nothing. :sombrero:

A friend of mine commented that a fly is useless, they shouldn't share the earth with us and, "what's the point of them anyway". He then commented on the fact the fly was appearing to fly in a non-descript patterns, circling the lamp at the centre of the room, but with no apparent purpose.

I watched another fly this morning and thought that it's an incredible piece of engineering. For a start, it can fly! It's capable of independent thought, reactions, it can can reproduce, it's even capable of refinining itself through generations and evolving. There's a thousand other amazing things about it probably, but the most crucial one I suppose, is that we're not even nearly close at producing anything like it. I must tell my friend this :)

Evil cannot be conquered in the world. It can only be resisted within oneself.

I am so adjective that I verb nouns!
I suspect that without the fly the whole food chain would collapse.
