I absolutely at all times take responsibility for my "choices".
At the same time, that does not keep me from wondering at times
*where* on earth some of the motivations for those choices come from.

While others may use sociobiology as an excuse for strange
actions on their part, some of us would simply like to be
able to read the "source code" so we can validate or discard
the motivations for various behaviors. Without being able
to read the source code, you have no idea whether it
corresponds to years of work by a nobel prize winner
or the scribblings of an Englishperson thrown out of
a pub at 11:00 PM shortly after consuming 5 pints within
half an hour of closing time.
