I believe in the Oracle, don't you?

The story goes that Aesop, of fable fame, came to Delphi. After hearing from the Oracle, he let be known rather widely that the Oracle's pronouncements were so much nonsense. Well, the inhabitants of Delphi didn't take kindly to that sort of talk and took him to the top of the mountain at the right side of this photo and threw him off the cliff. He's buried around there somewhere.

So, now you know that it's a good idea to believe in the Oracle, and what happened to Aesop.
