    Noobs...as in nearly boobs.

    Actually there is a big difference between a noobie and a boobie. I see a lot of the first. None of the latter.

    ETA: directed at Gail before all you interlopers got in my way. Stand back. I'm armed, drinking and annoyed.
    Hey lady, herding kittens is an admirable and underappreciated job.
    Why do you think I had to enlist Transformers to help?

    And now that I think of it, you look sort of familiar. Are you currently sitting in a very large truck in Nevada and pretending your cell phone doesn't work?

    ETA:AGAIN: I just noticed that all you interlopers are really just Del. Stop appearing in double, Del. This is not a warning. Step away from the keyboard.

And when it all goes quiet, I see they are right here. I see that I'm a little piece of a big, big universe and that makes things right. When I die, the scientists of the future, they're gonna find it all. They're gonna know, once there was a Hushpuppy and she lived with her daddy in the bathtub." ~ Beasts of the Southern Wild
