"When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castle in all of England^H^H^H^H^H C++."

Bah.. it's not the 4th castle that's strong, it's the pile of castles underneath that are holding it up that are strong. :) Driving bunch of piles into the ground first woulda been a lot cheaper and easier. Misapplication of evolution? Or maybe misapplication of correlation vs causation? Or maybe me just not having a sense of humor right now? Turtles, all the way down...
