  1. Yo squid, I heard you like mecha, so I put a fish in your mecha in another mecha… Dr. Ghoti is like a sinister Matroyshka doll.

        I once toyed with the idea of automating the process, such that I would not have to think about it. But I still needed to design the required equipment, and thus I found myself staring at a blueprint for a roughly person-shaped extraction pod. A blueprint now long screwed up and thrown away.
