    Kid, I'm starting to think that maybe you really believe your own BS. But your ego is what's giving you problems, not me. Trust me, you did not 'outwit' anyone by discovering, just tonight, that "annual revenues" are "revenues per year." Most of us knew that before we started buying stocks, ok?

    I'll try to deal with your latest crop of nonsense as quickly as possible:

    1. Microsoft is selling for about 6.5x sales, not 10x. (oops!)

    2. Microsoft ("NO GROWTH") is still growing strongly, income up 11% each of the past two years. (oops!)

    3. *Unlike* most companies, and *unlike* Google, Microsoft has *no competition*. So they make 32% net margins. Google doesn't make that much even now, and life is a lot harder on the plateau.

    Get it?
