Here's what the DICTIONARY REQUIRES for "adultery":
voluntary sexual intercourse between a married man

Here's an intellectual challenge for you to get around, from Webster's:
Albert 1879-1955 American (German-born) physicist; enunciated theory
of relativity; discovered equivalence of mass and energy (E=mc2), etc.;
awarded 1921 Nobel prize for physics for contributing to theoretical
physics and his photoelectric law

and explain to me what the fuck John's on about? I think all
those extra brain cells are cutting off the circulation to
his Wernicke's -- he's babbling again.
Thanks in advance.
