True...but, as a 13 year-old, I have an excuse to-figuratively-say "yeah, yeah, but a ROBOTIC OCTO!!!" :lol: I love bein a 13 year old. :P Then again, even this is an extremely impressive advancement.

AND maybe I could get octo lens transplants and dump my contacts :biggrin2: :biggrin2: :biggrin2:

CTHULHU! I didn't know you'd been on one of my tours! Why didn't you introduce yourself?? I'd've found the nicest set of rusty manacles just for you and heated up the red hot poker with my own fair tentacle.......er hand
