    Not my fault. Print it or something. I think the idea was to follow the directions.

    I don't print and read religious propaganda, why would I print and read propoganda from the opposite side of the same coin?

    Either way, let's stop talking about religion, and start talking about JAVA!!!

    Indigo's being religious about discussing coffee. I think the thread is still OT.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Yep, it is.

    But, I've been called an "idiot" (actually I think that was an edit from a prior, even more offensive word) on this board because I posted something about different kinds of iterators. If we're going to avoid any topic that leads to "heated, pointless debate" then I think we ought to all just go get a life.

    Indigo needs to down on the pot and up on the coffee. All that love and peace will go away and life will be much richer.

    As for being called an idiot because you wanted to discuss iterators... I'm speechless.

    I'm just saying that religion is a very deep, very emotional topic, and most arguments I've witnessed involved people ill-equipped to engage in them, or with an agenda, or both.

    No skin off my nose, but I'll avoid them just the same.

    There, now we're back on topic.

    As you were saying?

    I'm not avoiding all heated discussion, but you have to look and say, "At what point does a thread about coffee have the ability to turn into a religious debate"? It's not about love and peace. If you want love and peace from me you're going to have to...well I'll spare you the details.

    So, you never in your life participated in a conversation?
    Because that's what happens to all conversations. They stray into different topics as you go along. If you don't like it, complaining will only make it worse; you just added a different topic yourself.
