What? Are you saying that those three -
Hang on, I just put them in the same box, doesn't mean I'm saying they're equivalent. They also fit together in boxes marked "mammal" or "made of protons, electrons, and neutrons".

Are we straying from the point here?
I think we are rather

One final question
If you must

Where are you sitting as you write this?
In the sunshine in my garden in the beautiful town of Topsham on the Exe estuary in Devon

So why on earth are you going to -
Sorry, that was your final question.
