What, like my 1550/1600 SAT or my 35/36 ACT scores? Twit. I say the
SAT isn't worth diddly because I did well on it, and know what it took
to do so. Well, it is worth diddly, but it certainly isn't a measure of
general intelligence, if such exists, or of creativity.

You have prophetic dreams, remember? You can dream about a man drinking
a glass of milk. A week later you can see Yanni drinking tea at lunch
and if seeing him do that has a high shock-value, you'll super the
dream-state right over him, you'll swear you dreamed about him doing
that, exactly at that table, and even psychprobe can't sort it out after
that." -- C.J. Cherryh, _Cyteen_, Grant ALX
