    Sherlock would have had to take an arrow through his brain for me to be justified in comparing VR to him.
    In fact to explain something evident (for the explainer) and stating it should be evident for the explainee is a typical Sherlockian behaviour. In fact that is why I am so turned off by the books, since Sherlock does explain something the reader (and evidently Dr. Watson) could not have an inkling of, as if it would be as plain as "the sky is blue" jsust to make clear his superiority.

    That sounds like HOH always trying to prove his superiority when he is actually a rather simple fellow. 😉

    Providing Sherlock lived he would still be more intelligent than you are! 😛

    Hell you aren't even smart enough to find your own avatar have to copy mine! 😛 😉

    And again, I assert that VR is like a brain damaged Dr. Watson that, having had something explained to him by Holmes, fumbles the explanation to someone else. watson, of course, tries to make out that he knew the facts of the matter all along.

    While this fact should be intrinsically obvious to the most casual observer, I've deduced that you are as dumb as a pile of broken bricks.

    You're like Dr Watson if he had a major head injury.
    Well, good old Doc Watson wrote a song about it, playing his Martin guitar on that song.

    It shouldn't be long before his name is crossed off again. Wonder how many times this idiot has been banned now.

    some folks find peace in gardening,
    others like to play the ponies...
    some guys like to hack big banks,
    and attempt to grab the monies...

    some folks sit in meditation,
    others, they will go fishing...
    a very few find humor and fun,
    pretending to go a-chessing...
