Another tale told by another idiot, still full of sound and fury

Which reminds me, Mr Pid

That I was channel-surfing last weekend and ran into Ferris Bueller's Day Off just in time to hear one of Ferris's monologues that dovetails with your Lennon quote...

"I do have a test today. That wasn't bullshit. It's on European socialism. I mean, really, what's the point? I'm not European. I don't plan on being European. So who gives a crap if they're socialists? They could be fascist anarchists. It still wouldn't change the fact that I don't own a car. Not that I condone fascism, or any "ism" for that matter. "Isms" in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an "ism", he should believe in himself. I quote John Lennon: "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me." Good point there. After all, he was the Walrus. I could be the Walrus. I'd still have to bum rides off of people."

"act of God" since 1635 AD

"Courts have recognized various events as acts of God—tornadoes, earthquakes, death, extraordinarily high tides, violent winds, and floods. Many insurance policies for property damage exclude from their protection damage caused by acts of God."

it is also due to the fact that they were paying attention to what happened to the fish.....
