Thanks for the reply

It is subtle, but that is the level of MY "humor"/reality. So, glad to hear
that you are of that thought as well, no matter the truth...
On a level, appreciated or not, it is a TRUTH, whether we like it or not...

I think we should analysize our "bad" habitats with the same "cold" blade to
"find" the "truth", but I am but one view point among many on a social level
in the end... Alpine habits are a great example of my thinking because of
the extremes of stratification. I wish we all could so easily see the subtle
renditions as easily

Thanks for the response Carlo
