  1. oh, now, you see! everyone and the mother will have them soon enough. but actually, this plays well into my plan to turn 29 Palm Marine Base into a HUGE, monstrous movie studio lot. they can play all they want and NEVER have to actually go out a kill someone. because only really bad people want to do that. and nation-states should be better than we are right now on planet earth and learn how to play nicely with one another without hitting and stuff. and maybe work together and solve that fukushima problem.
