As an atheist I always wonder why christians can "turn the other cheek" 
but cannot seem to muster how to turn their eyes away! If you don't like 
it then what stops you from simply not looking at it! Is something 
forcing you to use fortune or Cygwin or open and look at the contents of 
that file?!?
