|Sour grapes....Page 2 of 2 (1, 2)|
|What I find most sad of all is that Aesops fables, like sour grapes, and Prometheus' sacks, or even a lot of the shit in the bible, are still relevant.|
That basically people never learn and keep doing the same thing, and teaching their kids the same thing that we had problems with in interacting with each other 2000 years ago.
