  1. But others are skeptical. What would Aristotle say?

  2. Aristotle would ask "what is it good for?" and the Capitalist would say "tourism!" and the charlatan would sell tiny pebbles from the area (or any pebbles for that matter) to the superstitious, and the religious fundamentalists would condemn it as blasphemy, wherein they would stage a public Aristotelian book-burning. *drops mic*
