I think this is a marvel piece of symmetry, and it works BOTH WAYS, genius:
if someone doesn't know how to use X properly he doesn't know how to
use this complex X (*34.4a).

wow, logical.

The only way to learn something about X is by using X. Hmm, if the
opposite is true will it rain tomorrow?

Like your mom?

Sorry, I don't understand such complex logic without medication.

kid, i think you're imagining some place in the future where you
actually figured out how to do something useful with a computer. i can
assure you the time will never come, however much you're trying to
