Sigh. Let me get this straight: if a duck is sitting in a room (because it doesn't want to go anywhere) and Paolo looks in at the window (he really needs to get counselling for that) he would see a train in a mirror raising its left arm, because it is having a beer with Geert ... does the beer come before the requirement, or before the Use Case? I'm so confused. Maybe I need Geert's ducktionary.. er... dictionary.
Best Regards, Roy

Err. Roy, are you OK? I'm getting a bit worried about you :-? Has Paolo messed with your head too much?
Now your really going the Belgian way, combining beer AND surrealism. Must say it makes me feel right at home.

Oh, I have had a good night's sleep and I'm fine, thanks Geert. However, I'm just trying to model the constraint 'If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's an intercity express train', so I might have a couple of wobbles later in the day...
Best Regards, Roy

I just checked the UML spec, the Marx Brothers were right, "there aint no sanity clause".   :)
