I feel the need to respond. ;)
I was once told a story...perhaps an urban legend...of a man wearing
a holstered gun walking through a grocery store parking lot somewhere
in Texas. A woman screamed at him from across the lot "that gun is
just a replacement for your penis!" ...to which the man responded
"Well, I suppose you're right...if I could kill someone at 500 yards
with my penis, I wouldn't need this gun!"
If my penis could crank 3.2 sustained 64-bit GFLOPS with enough
memory bandwidth to keep it fed, I wouldn't need my Cray! ;)
