    No, that's not what I meant. Firstly, I used `insulting' as a verb not as an adjective. Secondly, I was only kidding Scott. But I find your misinterpretation of it revealing too. (Of course I would not mind you narrating as much as you like on your favorite pets :-) ).

    If they are illusory than culture must be illusory also. That's how I feel about it so that's why it didn't even occur to me memes might be illusory in the first place.
