Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes        
I all alone beweep my outcast state,        
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,        
And look upon myself, and curse my fate;        

Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,                 
Featured like him, like him with friends possest,        
Desiring this man's art, and that man's scope,        
With what I most enjoy contented least;        

Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,        
Haply I think on MOAB—and then my state,        
Like to the lark at break of day arising        
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;        

For thy sweet BS remember'd, such wealth brings        
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
