Get Yer Own Rock!

Still thinking about public-key-crypto™ from this morning. I've got King-Arthur, RCA, PGP, swords-in-stones™, and math all jammed into my head occupying the same neural-space-time™. The result so far is that everyone is Merlin, has their own rock to put swords into if they want, but only the owner of a particular rock can take-the sword-out-again™.

I guess Rivest-Shamir-Adleman™ were not the first to discover public-key-encryption.
