Yes, indeed!  Repairs are not cheap there.

An alternative?

The Large Hamster Collider:

Image

Place two hamsters inside.  Observe behavior, especially collisions and "spins".

Determine that if conducted with enough hamsters in enough loops it is a reasonable proxy for the results of the real LHC.

And your cost was under $50 per unit and hamster pair.

One only needs two hamsters to get an unlimited number of hamster samples.

Sadly, the half-life of a hamster is not that long and the decay products smell.

You may be pleased to know that today, the Tweet pair included this:

Lay your hands on him;
    remember the battle—you will not do it again!

So far no followers and not following anyone either.  I am thinking about it though.

Should the identity stay very pure and unconnected?  

Or should I take the opportunity to create a really weird set of followings?

Well, there is plenty of time to mull it over.

The problem with making my presence known is that the p$rn girls/bots will start following (they follow anything and anyone, trying to get a piece of the action).

And then you have to block them.

Surprising; the bait is not working? Surprised #5 did not get a few lost souls.

I am not worried about that at all.

This is performance art - and for any alternative/subversive art form, if the expression is subtle, it can take a long while before people actually notice it.

Be patient.  :)

When will the tweets shift from behemoth to behemen or even behebutterflies?
