    It seems that contemporary weapons would not be able to produce WWIII. They are so fast, devastating, so accurate, that they will never produce such tedious negotiations, such lengthy plans; not enough time. People that count in this matter will negotiate with supersonic speed. Too much power will save us from WW. ~ C A Cafolini

    As I grow older, I can't help but feel I have the mind of a Marine with the power of an amoeaba. Earlier, as this transformation was taking place, I did not feel well. But I soon realized that it could be worse, much worse. I could have gained the mind of an amoeba with the power of a Marine. ~ C A Cafolini
