The optimists rule: The rules are not important, what matters are the friends we made along the way.

Rule #303 Bang, you're dead.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Indeed, and this brings us to rule 77 quite nicely. Rule 77: if you intend to look a gift horse in the mouth, bring an apple.
