One Of Those Things

You know how there are those things in life that you didn't know you needed, but once you have them, you can't imagine life without them? Like computers. While recognizing their utility, for years I had no interest in actually owning one. And then I bought one. (And it sucked. Hard. But that didn't dissuade me.)
Or maybe more accurately one of those things that you didn't know existed, and never would have thought of in a million years, but then you hear about it and you think, "Well, of course," and you realize that, all along, there's been a hole in your life that is shaped exactly like that thing you didn't know you were missing.
For me, this might well be one of those things.

That's pretty funny/sad. But where are you going to find a copy?

That's the question that will consume me, and will ultimately lead me down the path to madness.
Unless I forget about it, which, honestly, seems more likely.
Maybe PZ would be willing to part with his copy.

Somehow I doubt it. I think this is going to be a cherished addition to his library of crazy.
