I did not say it gave Bob ownership of A, and in the next sentence
(which you have snipped), I denied that Bob had ownership of A.

So (as my father's geometry teacher used to say, marking wrong answers
off twice, not only have you failed to get it right, but you have *also*
gotten it wrong.

And through this revolting graveyard of the universe the muffled, maddening
beating of drums, and thin, monotonous whine of blasphemous flutes from
inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond Time; the detestable pounding
and piping whereunto dance slowly, awkwardly, and absurdly the gigantic
tenebrous ultimate gods -- the blind, voiceless, mindless gargoyles whose soul
is Nyarlathotep. (Lovecraft) John Cowan|cowan at|
