    I bet if there were some sort of ... network ... maybe of computers ... yeah, that's a good start ... with like a way to search for things ... let's call it a "search engine" ... Oh that's a good one, I should totally copyright that! ... then we could type words in ... is patent the word I'm looking for? ... I should totally search for that on my "search engine" ... Oh, right, rambling. So... you could put these words in ... like key words ... oh, that's a good one too! Key words in a search engine! I'm like a buzz word genius! ... Right. Buzz words in a search engine, and you could like type "points in a polygon" and push like a button ... and BAM! TOTALLY GET A ... LINK! YEAH A LINK TO WHAT YOU SEARCHED FOR! BAM BAM BAM!!

    Point in polygon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
