You aren't seriously asking a time-nut what the point of doing something is,
are you? We are doing what we do because we think it's fun. Because we
might learn something. Or because we think it would be cool. Not everything
needs to have a rational goal judged by price vs. performance, does it?

You know, the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common.
They don't alters their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to
fit the views, which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the
facts that needs altering.  -- The Doctor
