*blinks... looks around*

I had no idea! I can't believe I was needlessly placing myself in such danger. None of my windows have protection and the doors in my house aren't much better off!

Meanwhile I can't seem to get the quiz to find out if my neighbours are Raptors. I have my suspicions. They are loud, they shriek often and there are often strange banging and trampling noises coming from o'erhead -likely when hapless prey wander into their lair.

You never know when someone close to you could be a Velociraptor in disguise... It could even be your housemate. It could be my housemate!

Why did you have to go and let me worry about this Gnat!?

Also, I like that you are not allowed ice chests, or illegal drugs. Are the illegal drugs more illegal on the site? Do they become doubly illegal?

Thankfully they decided it was okay to allow you to bring your wheelchair if you are disabled. So kind.
