    The derivative of e is not e - it's 0. The derivative of e^x is e^x.

    Think about what happened with the WWF back when the Monday night wars first began - the writing team thought stuff like Mean Gene and the Gobbedly Gooker dancing around the ring was a great idea, but now it's looked back on as a very low embarassing event. The causes for WCW's death, with repeated squashings and letting politics get in the way with Hogan, Nash, Bischoff, etc. - everybody thought that was alright at the time, only to have the way it turned out be very very different from how it seemed. More recently, stuff like Katie Vick, the new masked Kane - somebody on the writing team thought that would be a great idea, but they both failed horribly.

    Since we already know the ending of this story - WWE declining and eventually dying, and TNA growing and eventually becoming the face of wrestling, most of WWE's decisions are going to be seen in this retrospective as terrible. If Vince thought that Khali was going to be this monster heel, he'd do everything he could to make him into a star - including squashing Cena and retiring Flair. If he wanted to continue to push Cena to be a star face, he'd continue along the "Hogan" idea and try to make him into a larger-than-life star on the silver screen. The decisions are stupid, no doubt, but they could be seen to fit Vince's plans and hopes.

    Bouncing off that, one thing I'd like to see is little quotes from somebody from the writing team, or maybe even Vince or Shane, trying to defend some of their decisions and explain what was going through their head at the time.

    Remember, Dynamite - TNA is just getting a full time, two-hour primetime slot now. They're on a roll with the stealings of Colon, Jericho, RVD - obviously, they're gonna run into struggles when they have to be, in the game, at war with WWE.

    Just a small nitpicking - but you wrote Colon's name and finisher several times in the four-way where you meant Rhino, I think.

    *heart still beating rapidly*

    That Sabres/Rangers game yesterday was one of the most heart-attack-inducing, amazing games I've ever seen. I was fortunate enough to get tickets, and I couldn't hear myself think when Drury scored with 7 seconds left.

    Sabres have to get some credit - especially considering they still have at least 5-6 regulars out (Connolly, Afinogenov, Paille, Gaustad (season), Lydman, Kotalik).

    Question - are there only specific wrestlers in the tournament, or is it open to everybody?

    So far, there's Angle, Rock, HHH, Big Show, and apparently Regal...

    Buffalo plays another fantastic game - 8 wins to start the season.

    Sabres are 5-0 - Miller's been up and down, but he seems to come up really big in the shootouts, and the offense is beginning to click on all cylinders again.

    Still waiting for a Biron trade, perhaps for a solid 7th defenseman and an extra forward (so Peters doesn't have to start).

    Sabres/Canes a tight one - 2-2 in the third...

    Lots of penalties, too.

    I do hope that this diary isn't dead - I was really enjoying it, both the Shakespeare and non-Shakespeare stuff.

    I would make a point to show how it was possible for Fascism to be developed out of a Christian faith. Show the beginning, and how the people who developed it just took certain points out of context and to an illogical end.
