So you are real. I'm not crazy after all. Now I understand my dreams...the criss-cross of colors, the perpendicular order, the craving for single malt, the low rumbling chant of tartan...tartan...

It all makes sense. The dream job. Gordon should be in Plaid.

You showed me yours, so I'll show you mine.

next experiment idea:

Create a yearlong scientific ecological experiment, with multi-climate habitats, all enclosed in a dome. . .we shall call it Plaid-dome, we just need to find Pauly Shore and Stephen Baldwin and we'll have an experiment. . .

I'm lovin' the Segway-meets-bubble wrap experiment.

Next, you should put a whole platoon of army guys down and run them over... ;-)
