Quote: The XW Buddah has the answers.Enlightenment begins HERE.
Quote: The XW Buddha responds:O Nobly born, listen carefully: Often we observe in remote areas where there are wild beasts. If you have reached the beginning of wisdom, and have an XW40, and a barlow, and you are surrounded by a pack of wild snarling dogs, insert the XW40 into the Barlow, and beat them with it. For it is a great mass of metal and glass and will surely smite them. But do not use this combination in your telescope.
