Human beings owe pretty much everything to Prometheus, the Titan god of foresight. Not only did he make the first men out of clay, he also gave us fire, which he snuck away from the altar of Zeus in a fennel stalk. Poor Prometheus paid big time for this little burglary—Zeus had him chained to a rock, where every day eagles would come and eat his liver. To make matters worse, each night his liver would grow back, so the eagles would have a tasty liver snack all ready for them the next day. According to some folks, Heracles came by years later, set Prometheus free, and got Zeus to pardon the hero of mankind. Phew.

I have a Winnebago and kind of tour around. I don't really like staying in one place too long because I spent so many years chained to a rock.
