    (The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon

    You'd think, but at some point in time the "trap" should have filled up and wiped out the family. I prefer the term condensate maze. It has a couple extra turns but there's still an exit.

    Exactly! They should put a tap on the bottom, then they'll have their own "natural" spring that they can drink from.

    I came upon this pile of junk, the torch has been passed. I take ownership of things shaped before me, it is now my responsibility.
    But what are you suppose to do when you see yourself in that pile of junk?

    Whoever installed that vent couldn't even be bothered to turn the elbow 180 degrees to face the right direction. :P
