@NotoriousDOC Just did a bit-torrent-style grave robbery. My new 'man' will be an artful collage. Also, good conversation starter.

It's alive! I'd better beat it over the head repeatedly with a fire extinguisher.

So sometimes you build something, and it gets away. They're gonna can me at the university if they find out about this.
