I secretly admire people who talk like this.  My fantasy is to find a tall
BLT who talks like this but it's a moot point since I'm out of circulation
and don't get out much any more, except to N5OT.  My wife could identify
with the Barbie they took off the shelf for saying "Math is hard."

I felt vindicated when Jim said:

If BPL goes through you could dispense with the wireless LAN and just use
the extension cords, right?

I bet some of you guys would be mortified to see what I can do with some
tower and guy wires!

See you in the contest.
