    "You can chalk up a morning's worth of semi-scheduled losses now, or chalk up
    even more losses when you have to install patches *after* cleaning the worm off".

    "You can pay me $500, or you can pay the hospital $4,000 to have your kneecaps
    fixed".

    Draw your own conclusions about any family resemblance between those two
    statements. :)
