*engages obviousnessbot node*

The obvious answer is this. Once upon a time, there were three gods:
one of heaven, one of earth, and one of the afterlife. They argued and
bickered, and eventually decided that they should write a long snake
and give it to mankind. The snake purpled and oranged, but it was
never able to blue. The end.

(Caveat: There may still be some bugs in obviousnessbot.)
