My neighbor plays the drums. Poorly. My other neighbor has a dog. The dog, much like me, doesn't much appreciate the drum playing. As a result, I am caught in the middle of a cacophanous dialogue which makes me wish I had X-men-like telekinetic powers. In my mind, things would then go a bit like this:

Guy on drums: ba-dum-dum-dum-dum. ba-dum-dum-dum-clash! ba-dum.
Dog: Arf! Arf!
Guy on drums: dum-dum-dum-clash-clash-clash. ba-dum-dum-dum-clash!
Dog: Arrrrooooooooooooooo!
Guy on drums: ba-dum-dum-dum-dum. clash-clash-ba-dum!
Dog: Arrrrooooooo0000000!
Me (using my mental powers): *ommmmmm*
Drum set: KA-BOOM!
Guy on drums: (silence)
Dog: (silence, tail wagging)

I can only wish...

Buy a $100 hand-cranked "laptop" (it hasn't got the memory of a current model but might be positively preferably to take to lectures, starbuck's, etc) for three times the price ($300 is still much lower than anything at Best Buy) and two are donated to poor 3rd world kids.

(It ain't spam if it's moral.)

have looked further into that laptop business. i'm back to being an imbecile again: it sounds great, but if you click through to the actual laptop developer's site not only is there no word of the $300 deal, but they very bluntly say they don't have any made yet and they will sell only to national-level education ministries.
