Essentially, O’Neill is, overwhelmingly, human. This means that, much like all the rest of us overwhelmingly human people watching and rewatching the show at home, he has the capacity for growth and change.

Why in frelling hell does our ILS, when exporting book records in .xls (and maybe other formats, haven't checked), export the ISBN's and replacing 0's by O's in it. And that is the only field in which it does that, all the other fields with 0's in it are absolutely fine.
