Hey, I haven't bought into the whole XYZ thing, have I? OK, a brief
attempt to synchronize on a decent intellectal discussion and one cheap
potshot, but my tolerance rapidly took me elsewhere. :)

Its my opinion that if you're not in a constant state of flux you have
no idea what's going on.

   You ride in 250 tons of molecularly aligned crystalline titanium
wedded to a ceramic ablative matrix.  You carry a 200mm Gauss
cannon, two massive 10-gigawatt lasers, two SMLM fire-and-forget
missiles, a Vulcan IV point defense anti-missile system, and a
deadly assortment of other equally lethal weapons.
   Your vehicle is the ultimate product of 4,000 years of armored
   Your life expectancy is less than two minutes.
