Yoda baby,
come on down the well
of gravity
come meditate and hover with me
Yoda baby,
just fly your little spacepod to me

Yoda baby,
let's count my midichlorians
by the tree
ride me like a backpack, you'll see
Yoda baby,
dock into my spaceport tonight

Yoda, Baby

A certain subset of gamers: Rail loudly against digital distribution, denigrate people who buy games digitally as chumps, congratulate each other on their wise purchasing strategies

Those gamers, whenever a new game comes out: Complaining that the new game isn't in stock at their local stores, trading rumors with each other about what places will have it first, anxiously visiting the same stores over and over to check availability

"Paleobotanists and climatologists have studied the ecosystems of the past by analyzing millennia-old material in rat nests, tracking ice age climates and changing flora across the American Southwest. In centuries-old homes of the antebellum South, objects preserved in rats’ nests have even taught us new things about the lives of enslaved African Americans whose stories were not preserved in the written records of the time."
