Nice try, guy, but I'm afraid that if the best you can manage is
an echo, the point stands. Moreover, if you believe you have
telepathic powers which enable you to read other people's
deepest thoughts and fears, I guess I am the one who is
delegated to pass on the disappointing news: the static on your
mental radio is deafening.
