Speaking as a "scientifically ignorant bag of wind", I feel blessed that I'm referred to as a "Fooster" instead!  excellent!

This is a much nicer way of shutting down the OP question than just locking it up.     excellent!  

Congratulations to those architects of stealth.     Shock

That only works if nobody makes a post that is back on topic.
