I hear they're actually on the menu over at the Asylum.  So there is a use for them, after all.

I guess in this economy, we all have to cut costs, and go for the cheapest animal protein.

These tiny ones though...they're interesting...I think I will set up an aquarium of them over at the club.  Something to entertain our newer or less sociable or less well-read guests, and while they're selling miniature plastic castles and ruined Atlantises to each other, we can place gentlemanly bets on which ones will be successful.  Can't hurt any worse than what they did to the actual markets.

All we have to do is place one of these ethics sheets in the corner to keep them under control, and toss a little fish food or maybe a gerbil pellet or two in there once a day.  The one I have in the jar doesn't need much to drink either; if it gets irritating I can easily give it what would be only a gulp or two for me but is well past its limit, so it'll pass out for a while and be quiet.

No, at the asylum we're actually crazy enough to eat them.



Right, well, moving on...

Heh the "victim" in that video actually does look a little like one of the Realtors who was trying to sell my place...if that had happened to him I probably wouldn't have been too surprised...probably would have just shot it, and when the police came, they'd have had no trouble believing me, considering the level of Realtor infestation we have in this neighborhood...not to mention having the blown-up little alien body as proof.

...eeew, I sure hope those guys really did give the keys back to the landlord, and no copies!  Shocked

Back to your regularly scheduled...whatever that was...

A flashy new banner has appeared in the otherwise deserted lot which reads:

PARKING AREA FOR THE...CLASSIC TEMPORAL TRAVEL DEVICE SHOW AND CONVENTION!!!

<---LARGE DEVICES          COMPACT DEVICES--->

PLEASE AVOID THE CENTRAL OAK TREE

(this time it does not say:

*stands holding his pocket device*

No way I'm leaving this laying around.

*opens the ersatz cigarette case, twists a knob, slides a gradient control, unscrews, resets, then re-screws two temporal settings, presses the ACTUATE button, then turns right and walks through a spacetime anomaly*
