I hope to entertain.
I said *hope to*, ok?
Scene at a certain legal department office:
Megaflop-lawyer-1: How much should we sue-per-man?
Megaflop-lawyer-2: How much should we … what?
Megaflop-lawyer-1: Sue per man! …… ?
Megaflop-lawyer-2: You nuts? I am not superman, but these Linux guys already have a sue-do in the code!! Oh my FUD-ing jaw! Will their program file a lawsuit automatically before we do?

The Legislative History of the 1952 Patent Act inform us that Congress intended the patentable subject matter referred to in §101 to “include anything under the sun that is made by man.”

That, I’m afraid, the Congress has no clue about. I certainly hope that they also put “anything under the sun that is modified by man”.
We have yet to find even one thing that man has made from scratch.
