Sigh... I guess I should be flattered at the influence that I obviously 
must have on the spread of he dreadful cancer (Mathematica), which 
threatens mankind with untold disasters unless stopped by RJF's valiant 
efforts to which he devotes so much of his time (payed for by California 
tax payers?) but it's all in vain - we are all doomed anyway. The worst 
Mathematica can do is speed it up a little.

So while the going is good why be so depressing?
How about letting us hear some more "cheerful facts" as in:

I am the very pattern of a modern major-general :
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral ;
I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical.
From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical ;
I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical ;
About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot of news 
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse ;

Of course you should replace major-general with "professor of computer 
science" and make other suitable changes.
