Or the day after that and you note that:

OCT 31 = DEC 25

Therefore Xmas = Halloween.

Or when someone asks you about a story in the bible, and you answer "No, I've never read the bible. I don't enjoy fantasy."

I recently answered thusly. It didn't go over so well....

Yeah, I'm not surprised the others despised you for that. How can anyone not like fantasy?

Terry Pratchett's Disc World, very cool. Hard fantasy.

Rowling's Harry Potter? A money making machine.

The Bible... Perhaps another money making machine.

Of course. I've read most, if not all, of Niven's work, even when it was co-authored with Pournelle.
