the point by DarkRiderDLMC the point by DarkRiderDLMC
Bryce 7 pro:

The villagers climb the point to pray,
'n' then they throw their lives away,
leaping down to the rocks below,
their fluids join the ebb and flow.

Their God is not a watchful one,
creation finished, his job was done,
but they still go and pray and die,
hoping it will catch his eye.

That he'll return and say, "Enough!,
you've proven your love and all that stuff!"
But it has been ten thousand years,
a million lives, a billion tears.

Perhaps as Gods are so prone to do,
he's forgotten them as time's sands blew,
but they'll keep jumping to their death,
until there's no believers left.

And then, stripped of their love and pain,
their God will realize in vain,
that they were what gave him Godhood
and this time gone - he's gone for good.

If you're looking for a moral here,
it's that if your God demands a tear,
or that you spend your life in fear,
perhaps you need one that just likes beer!

This reminded me of Myst.
Damned Myst, I could never beat it...
Don't feel bad - I have games dating back to my first computer(a radio shack color computer with 16k ram and a tape drive) that I never beat :D.

Only 16k? How did you survive?
:D  Then, only the rich people could afford 32k.  When I bought the upgrade to 32k, I felt like a rich man.  At 64k, I felt like royalty and when I bought my first PC-AT with 512k I had a party.

Now I'm running an old dell with a single dualcore and 4 gig of ram and I really want a couple of quadcores and another four gig of ram.

Darn these technological advancements! It's like you have to get a computer every five years or so.
