The winner makes the rules, eh? Reminds me of Hienlien's _Job_.

Actually, that makes a good tie with the "other" meaning of Lucifer (ie
"Lightbringer"), since it's a Prometheus-story, read that way.[1]

[1] In the OT, it is a snake, not Lucifer. I don't know how far back the
association between the snake and Satan goes, but the two are equated in
Milton, so the concept is at least a few hundred years old.
